Searching For Proof Of Religion

Aug 29, 2011

In Petersberg KY, there's a Creation Museum where the exhibits at the museum teach that the Earth is 6,000 years old and was created in six 24-hour days. The founders say more than a million people have visited — 80 percent of which are from out of state. It's such a good economic development tool that the governor of Kentucky is supporting financial aid to a companion museum about Noah's Ark, with an ark built to biblical scale, to show people that the whole concept really could have worked. 

Also this summer, we've seen reports about conservative Christian scholars who are publicly conceding, in an unprecedented way, that the story of Adam and Eve cannot be literally true, that there cannot have been a moment when only two people were alive on Earth. Does this mean the whole creation story falls apart? Today, we'll look at other example of hard science stacked up against deep faith.  Leave your comments below, e-mail colin@wnpr.org or Tweet us @wnprcolin.
