So I was reading nutbar Eric Hovind’s blog, and was shocked to see that he had listed a creation museum right here in Winnipeg! I had no idea that there were young Earth creationists so close to home. So sad.
The C.A.R.E. Ministries Museum of Creation is located in the Oxford Bible Church. According to the C.A.R.E. Ministries website, the people at this church are “real Christians”. You’ve gotta love the tendency of Christians to only call people who believe their brand of the religion “real Christians”.
C.A.R.E. (Christian Apologetics Research and Evangelism) was founded by John Feakes, who told the Winnipeg Sun in 2003:
I think human history is a lot more interesting than what the textbooks are teaching. People are only getting one way to look at things, and we don’t think it’s the best way. What we want to do is say “Here’s the data, how would you interpret it?” We don’t want to brainwash anyone the other way either.
I guess Feakes thinks saying things like “The creation model states that God created all the plants and animals, and that evolution by natural selection is really a hopeless explanation for the complexity we see in the natural world” is just presenting the data.
My favourite part of the website is his Grand Canyon display. Feakes thinks that the Grand Canyon is evidence of the flood. Feakes lives in a place that floods every year in varying degrees. I wonder how he reconciles with himself the fact that he doesn’t live in a canyon.
