Creation Museum President and CEO Ken Ham said the museum’s recent move to allow children 12 years old and under to come and visit for free in 2014 is a response to evolutionists “indoctrinating kids in the pagan religion of evolution.”
“We want to do what we can to get as many kids to the Creation Museum to learn the truth concerning God’s Word in Genesis and the gospel,” Ham explained in a Facebook post on Thursday.
“Evolutionists go ballistic when they learn about kids coming to the Creation Museum – so let’s spread the word as much as we can – bring as many kids as possible to the Creation Museum in 2014,” he urged supporters.
The Creation Museum in Kentucky recently announced the news on the Answers in Genesis official website, clarifying that kids must be accompanied by at least one paying adult.
The organization admitted that this was a big step, as it does not receive federal or state tax money, and so it depends a lot on visitors to help keep it running year round. It calculated that in the past year, income from children’s tickets for ages 6-12 was $225,000 – meaning the change will significantly impact the bottom line for the museum.
“But I believe it’s imperative that we help parents and other adults to bring as many children as possible to the Bible-proclaiming and evangelistic Creation Museum,” Ham wrote on the website, addressing guests and supporters.
