Ministry uses dinosaurs to dispute evolution
An article from the Cincinnati Enquirer regarding a guy named Ken Ham, and his attempt to "convince" people that evolution is bunk by building a $25 million (yes, you read that right) "Creation Museum"
Soon, visitors to Ham's still-unfinished Creation Museum will experience his view: that God created the world in six, 24-hour days on a planet just 6,000 years old. This literal interpretation of the Bible runs counter to accepted scientific theory, which says Earth and its life forms evolved over billions of years.

Undaunted by considerable opponents, Ham's Answers in Genesis ministry is building a $25 million monument to creationism. The largest museum of its kind in the world, it hopes to draw 600,000 people from the Midwest and beyond in its first year.
He claims that it's going to be the biggest tourist attraction in Cincinnati. I'm sure the citizens of Cincinnati are proud. Then again, the "Ripley's Believe it Or Not Museums" are a big draw.
