Not on my list...

The Creation Museum will not be on my family's list this summer of things to do.
New museum says dinosaurs were on Noah's Ark
From the website:
The Creation Museum will be upfront that the Bible is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice, and in every area it touches upon.

Okay, first, whose bible and second whose authority? They are quite clear how they feel about Catholic authority on the "mastermind" website. The Gift of Scripture–it’s an issue of authority Not to mention the bible is a Catholic book since prior to the Reformation, it was uniquely "ours" and authority of translation and inclusion was done by our Church.
Catholics who have been watching the Creation Museum unfold, note that it contains both bad theology and bad science. Not a good mix and I hope our local Catholic schools don't look for field trips to this place of confusion. Our local paper covered the controversy here:
Who created the Earth - and when?
Museum stirs scientific debate, theological woes
So, I think we will stick to authentic Catholic books and media instead of this fundamental glam collection. I guess when there are no sacraments or true authority on Sunday, people get bored or have to fill in the blanks somehow.
Also, in going the route of sola scriptura, where in the King James Version is the Book of Dinosaurs? I need to Google that.
