In the News: Dinosaur Billboards and the Creation Museum

ABC News reported recently that Answers in Genesis’ Creation Museum has launched a new nationwide billboard advertising campaign.

The billboards feature retro-style dinosaurs, and appeared recently in cities such as Chicago, San Francisco, and Houston.  Some critics have wondered why the ads focus on dinosaurs instead of God, or whether this equates to a ‘Flintstones’ theology, but Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis pooh-poohed such folks.  Ham pointed out on his AIG blog that atheists have long used billboards to promote their point of view.

  1. I like the one with the dragon. Literal belief in fire-breathing dragons is important to Creationists, because of Leviathan in Job 41. I’d keep that quiet if I were them.

      I don’t know, a fish that can produce 600 volts of electricity, a beetle that can shoot noxious fluid out it’s butt at 212°F, a spider that spits glue,… a fire breathing lizard might not be too far fetched.
