        Florence, Ky. -- Ken Ham, director of the global ministry Answers in
Genesis, is building a $14-million answer to evolution in Florence in far
northern Kentucky, just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati.
        The Creation Museum & Family Discovery Center will offer all the
classic science museum exhibits, but with a twist.  Each one will be
interpreted as proof of the biblical account that God created the Earth and
all that's in it over six days, just 6,000 years ago.
        The huge double-helix of DNA will be used to argue that living
beings are so complex, there's no way they could have evolved by random
mutation from an undifferentiated blob.  Fossils will be used to make the
point that old bones don't come with a date stamped on them -- and to argue
that scientific methods such as carbon dating are wildly inaccurate.
Life-size dinosaurs will illustrate the theory that Adam and Eve lived
alongside T. rex in a blissful Eden, free from violence.  An informational
placard might identify a dinosaur model this way: "Thescelosaurus.  Means
wonderul lizard.  Height: 4 feet. Length: 11 feet.  Created on Day 6."
