Our friends at Answers in Genesis have just announced that their Ark Encounter will open on July 7th 2016. For at least the first 40 days and nights, it will be open for 24 hours a day! Let's hope it doesn't rain all that time.
The attraction features a building of wood – a life-size replica of the Ark.
The whole concept of the Ark Encounter is very exciting, and I can't wait to see it. To find out more, visit either the Answers in Genesis website, or the special Ark Encounter website.
And to celebrate the announcement, you can now buy our Don't Miss the Boat bundle for just $35 online!
We need to downsize our stock! So come to our center on Friday and Saturday 13th and 14th November 2015 and buy lots of our stuff for bargain prices!

My good friend Sye ten Bruggencate has announced his Mercy Day project. The announcement is made for September 13th 2015. The first Mercy Day will be September 13th 2016. The date will be 9/13.
In Genesis 9:13, God said:
“I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.” (ESV)
The rainbow is not a sign of man's defiance. It is a sign of God's mercy.
We support Sye's work on this issue. Visit his special new site: MercyDay.com

The new book is finished and uploaded. The Grand Launch, including book signings, will be during the week beginning September 28th. However, the book will be available before then.
A BBC documentary series showed a giant, extinct, supposedly carnivorous bird catching and eating a tiny alleged ancestor of the horse. “This is a world where birds eat horses”, intoned the Oscar-nominated actor, voicing the narration. The evidence for this? One fossil gastornis (a giant bird), six fossil propalaeotheria (supposed horse ancestors) and one fossil bunch of grapes (that caused the “horses” to get tipsy, and lose concentration) all found together in one place. From this find was woven a fascinating story, which was then presented, as if it were a wildlife documentary. Where Birds Eat Horses: The Language of Evolution shows that evidence for evolution does not reside in observational science, but in the clever use of language. The book assists the reader in spotting such unscientific or pseudo-scientific language in textbooks, popular science articles, and documentary films. Without needing a degree in science, the actual science in such media can still easily be filtered from the use of fuzzy words, magic words and false presuppositions. It is shown that the acceptance of the truth of Genesis is a much better foundation for science than the mythologies of evolution.
The book is available for pre-order from the Mount St Helens Creation Center.
