Diorama at Ken Ham's Creationist Museum show giants fighting in gladiator pits alongside dinosaurs. Remember, this is supposed to be a "museum."

Courtesy of HuffPo:

A new display going into the creationist Noah’s Ark attraction in Kentucky shows what appears to be gladiator-style fights involving humans, giants and a dinosaur.

The dinosaur is visible in the far right of the first image, which has a giant on the left apparently about to spear a human. 

Ham, who believes in a strict literal interpretation of the Bible, claims the planet is roughly 6,000 years old, that humans existed alongside dinosaurs and that Noah even carried dinosaurs with him on the ark during a global flood roughly 4,300 years ago. 

There is no scientific evidence for a race of giants.

This is exactly the kind of thing that makes it possible for somebody like Donald Trump to be elected president in this country.

Teach the children mythological fables as fact, suppress their critical thinking skills, and the next thing you know you have created another conservative voter.

    CRIPES! How low can this idiot's ignorance go?

    Never mind. That was rhetorical.

      I still want an answer to the question: if EVERY WORD in the Bible is literal, perfect and true, how do you explain the two completely contradictory versions of the creation of Eve RIGHT ON THE FIRST FUCKING PAGE??

    Sounds like the makings of "The Far Side" cartoons.

      Wow! I always loved that cartoon! Though I doubt that idiots like Ken Ham would understand the humor behind the many science based themes.

    We just studied Genesis last year in Bible study, and I don't remember any of that happening. No dinosaurs, no gladiator pits.

    Which means that not Biblical. Does he even care that he's inventing shit?

    Giants and dinosaurs? Sounds like the New Testament book of Martin-George R.R.
    Of course my King James version has dragons, not dinosaurs. And, Jesus is known as Jon Snow.

      No, like Game of Thrones. Dragons and giants and people (oh, my!).
      Jon Snow was resurrected from the dead.

    Does Ham have a cockatrice?
    I remember reading the Bible and wondering what a cockatrice looks like...

    BTW, while Petraeu's and Harward's names are bandied and Mattis has an official position in the T.Rump occupying force, Remember this>
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/the-petraeus-scandal--where-are-they-now-010846840.html No wonder Harward declined! I would guess that he knew going in, they had - or would fabricate based on "not much" to blackmail him into line. Wonder if Mattis is worried?

    Non Proftit, pays no taxes, as a museum gets how much in federal funds?

  11. When I used to show films on weekend afternoons at the local natural history museum, I was told the three Ds was the way to get crowds in: Disney, Disasters and Dinosaurs. If the schedule had any of those on it, people would show up to the afternoon movie. People love Dinosaurs.

    Where Ken is going wrong is making it a diorama. No one cares. It has to move. Lights, sound, action.

    I have to wonder what percentage of his visitors are there to point and laugh.
