Profile of Creation Museum founder

We've posted before about the $25 million Creation Museum set to open near Cincinnati, Ohio. Today's Cincinnati Enquirer has a long profile of founder Ken Ham. In the article, Jerry Falwell says that Ham is "the most informed creationist in American" and that the museum is "going to be a mini-Disney World." From the Enquirer article, here are a few of Ham's beliefs:


Earth is about 6,000 years old, a figure arrived at by tracing the biblical genealogies, and not 4.5 billion years, as mainstream scientists say.

The Grand Canyon was formed not by erosion over millions of years, but by floodwaters in a matter of days or weeks.

Dinosaurs and man once co-existed (see accompanying Enquirer photo), and dozens of the creatures – including T-rex – were passengers on the ark built by Noah, who was a real man, not a myth.
