From BluegrassReport in the USA:

Does Rep. Geoff Davis (R) Believe That Humans And Dinosaurs Co-Existed?

Just when we think we’ve seen the most disturbing side of U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis (R) comes this story on his patronage of the museum that pays homage to that time when humans and dinosaurs co-existed:

Dinosaurs, Humans Coexist In Creationist Museum

Monday Jan 15 11:25 AEDT

PETERSBURG, Kentucky – Ken Ham’s sprawling creation museum isn’t even open yet, but an expansion is already underway in the state-of-the art lobby, where grunting dinosaurs and animatronic humans coexist in a Biblical paradise. …

Curious that this story showed up in an Australian newspaper (the museum’s owner is from there) but no mention in Kentucky papers.

Creationist colleague of Ham, Kent Hovind, gets ten years in jail.
