Creationist Fossil Digs

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]britzkrieg)

(AgapePress) - A Florida ministry is allowing Christians to experience God's creation while studying the intricacies of its design. Creation Expeditions was founded four years ago by Peter DeRosa and his family as a way for believers to get a better understanding of biblical creation through first-hand experiences.

Creation Expeditions takes vacationing families and individuals on fossil-digging trips to Colorado, the South Dakota Badlands, the Peace River region in Florida, and other parts of the U.S. to dig for fossil remains. Visitors can also go to the ministry's headquarters, which lies about 80 miles north of Tampa, to help clean and put together fossilized bones and to take part in other educational, fun and interesting activities.

"We do hands-on excavating with these families," DeRosa says, "and they have an opportunity to come out in the field to see the evidences right before them of the Great Flood. We give them foundations in creation science, and also, the opportunity to have the Book of Genesis come alive for them."

A quote from the AFA


Don Wildmon of the AFA is gloating over the fact that NBC canceled "The Book of Daniel" (something I am not yet finding substantiated by any news source I actually trust), and is crediting the influence of the AFA and similar right-wing organizations for getting advertisers to not buy advertising on the show. Well, that's as may be, but there was a quote in there that I just had to comment on:

"Even an impassioned plea by Daniel's producer Jack Kenny could not match your participation. 'Ordinarily, I would never ask anyone to do this, but the AFA and bullies like them are hard at work to try and prevent you from seeing these beautiful shows, and that is censorship—pure and simple. And that is both un-Christian and un-American,' Kenny wrote. His attitude is typical in today’s society. Non-Christians telling Christians what is Christian."

My first thought was, "Well, *someone* has to tell you radical religionists what it is to be Christian..."
