Morris* Copyright (c) 1992 by I.C.R. All Rights Reserved * Dr. Morris is President of the Institute for Creation Research ________________________________________________________________________ After almost two years of design and construction, the new ICR Museum of Creation and Earth History is now open to visitors. The exciting theme of this 4,000 square foot Museum is "A Walk through History," with visitors taking a tour through the newly created universe, then the Garden of Eden, followed by entrance into the regime of sin and death. Then they enter Noah's Ark, emerging from the Ark into the greatly changed post-diluvian world, with great fossil beds, volcanoes, and river canyons. Soon they experience a world affected by the great Ice Age, after which they enter the domain of pagan pantheistic evolutionism, centered in the Tower of Babel and its confusion of tongues, with tribes scattering thence all over the world with their false religion, as learned in Babylon. Artifacts recording these ancient cultures and migrations are seen as viewers pass, along with fossils of early men and animals of the so-called Pleistocene Epoch. Passing through this valley of spiritual death, they can see the cross of the coming Savior in the distance, as they come into the world of Graeco-Roman culture. There, of course, they also encounter the birth, life, substitutionary death, and bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. They confront the truth that He, as Creator and Sustainer of the world, has now become its sin-bearing Redeemer, assuring that all who believe on Him and accept Him as personal Savior will receive forgiveness and cleansing and everlasting life. The Christian era follows, as visitors see evidences of the apostolic and post-apostolic periods. The "long war against God" continues even after Christ, with pagan evolutionism still predominating in most of the world and professing Christians often compromising with the evolutionary philosophies of Greece, Rome, and other nations. The Renaissance and Reformation, as well as the Darwinian era, follow, as documented in the lives and testimonies of the great creationist scientists of these periods, along with their opponents. The exit hall brings Museum visitors back into the present, featuring the modern revival of creationism. A closing gospel message urges any unsaved visitors to accept Christ and look forward to His soon return to complete all His purposes in creation and redemption. A bookstore at the Museum entrance/exit offers a wide selection of ICR books and tapes. Visitors are encouraged to purchase some of these, partly, in order to help maintain and expand the Museum. More importantly, the testimony of the Museum can be better remembered and the visitor's Christian life and witness strengthened, through use of these materials. Admission to the Museum is free, of course, and there is no obligation to purchase anything. Museum hours are Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Group tours at other times can be requested by calling the Museum office (619) 448-0900, ext. 16. ________________________________________________________________________ This "Impact" was converted to ASCII, for BBS use, from the original formatted desktop article.

Don Barber, ICR Systems Administrator Fax: (619) 448-0900 All ICR staff members adhere to a Statement of Faith in the form of two documents: "Tenets of Scientific Creationism," and "Tenets of Biblical Creationism." ________________________________________________________________________ As a missionary organization, ICR is funded by God's people. The majority of its income is provided by individual donors who desire to proclaim God's truth about origins. Gifts can be designated for research, the graduate school, seminars, or any special part of the ICR ministry. All others will be used where most needed. We pledge to use them wisely and with integrity. If you would like to receive our free monthly newsletter "Acts & Facts," or our free quarterly devotional Bible-study booklet "Days of Praise," just request them by contacting ICR at (619) 448-0900. ________________________________________________________________________ We believe God has raised up ICR to spearhead Biblical Christianity's defense against the godless dogma of evolutionary humanism. Only by showing the scientific bankruptcy of evolution, while exalting Christ and the Bible, will Christians be successful in "the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" (II Corinthians 10:4,5).
