Dino was right.

Sure dinosaurs lived at the same time as people. If you don't believe me look at Dino on the Flintstones!!!!!!

We all heard the story of the Cretionists Museum that just opened up in Kentucky; and up here in Canada the thinking was "What a bunch of idiots!"

WELL GUESS AGAIN, BUNKY! Canada's got its share of nuts too!

A new creationism museum that paints itself as the scientific counterpoint to Canada's world-renowned Tyrell dinosaur museum opened yesterday in Alberta.

Owner Harry Nibourg and others who helped put together the Big Valley Creation Science Museum say they hope it will help convince skeptics their belief in a literal interpretation of the Bible -- complete with massive flood, dinosaurs walking the earth side-by-side with humans and a seven-day plan only 6,000 years ago to get it all started -- is based on scientific fact rather than blind faith.

"Evolution is not a science -- please, please don't call it a science," Nibourg said as he walked through the one-room museum he has spent years and hundreds of thousands of dollars bringing into existence. (This alone should be enought to have this asshole commited!)

The red walls are crammed with evidence he said was put together by hundreds of well-educated scientists. Dinosaur footprints lead along the floor, and a massive painted model of a dinosaur hangs suspended above the entrance.

Exhibits include photographs that show human footprint fossils side-by-side with dinosaur prints, rocks whose patterns he said show evidence of a massive flood and displays that explain how DNA is far too perfect to have been designed by chance.

Also displayed is evidence to refute that of people Nibourg calls "Evolutionists," including fossils and present-day animals that are identical, ruling out any type of adaptation.

Despite expectations of controversy, only about two dozen people, mainly media, watched as Earl Marshall, reeve of Stettler county, snipped a black ribbon to declare the museum open.

Most people present said they knew Nibourg, and while they don't necessarily agree with everything in the museum, they respect his right to express himself.

Marshall said he was warned it might not be politically wise for him to open the museum, but shrugged it off.

There is hope that the notoriety of the museum, located a few hours drive between Edmonton and Calgary, will attract tourists.
