The Museum’s Resurrection

Sunday, June 11th, 2006

LWM Sketch Sequioa2small copy.jpgA chill was in the air, the leaves changing color and the children were lining up to meet their morning school busses. It was September 2005, and an idea that I had been so passionate about for so many years was bubbling up again. To my drawing pad I went, madly illustrating various displays meant to capture and wow any who walked through the museum’s doors. The idea for the Lost World Museum, like the phoenix of old, was rising again. Building on years of visioning and scribbled notes, refined by our Bibleland Studios experience, I was much more realistic and better prepared to formulate a plan to bring a material realization to the myriads of thoughts on paper. A portfolio was beginning to be assembled. Once completed, step two would entail presenting the project’s portfolio to people of means for their review. The Museum was no longer 500 million dollars but several million, which would require the help of many small donations or a few people who saw the value and could respond at a substantial level. The problem was I had no friends or acquaintances that were millionaires. I, like most, are a humble bumble with humble bumble friends and a very big and costly dream.

Focus on Evidence

Thursday, June 1st, 2006

The summer of 2005 went quickly. Over 12 months of battling with Evolutionists on our Bibleland forum challenged us to rethink through the different forms of evidence we could present to validate the first 10 chapters of Genesis. Interestingly, some patterns emerged; they all wanted hard evidence. Thankfully, the most tangible proof of the genesis story happens to be of great public interest. The topics include: Noah’s Ark, Giants Humans, Ooparts (out of place artifacts), Ancient Technology and Anomalous Fossils.

Discovering peoples fascination with this topic, we decided to become specialists in Noahs ark resources. Curious if Noahs Ark would prove Genesis, I asked the evolutionists, What if a 600-foot wood boat, carbon dated to 5,000 years, were found atop Mount Ararat Turkey just where the Bible states it is? Would that be proof? Their response was a resounding,”NO, it only proves that a giant boat is atop of a mountain, period.” I asked myself, Does it really? Well, technically they are correct. However, what would such a stupendous find like that really mean?

Giant Humans

The Bible indicates we started 6,000 years ago tall and strong and have trimmed down thru environmental de-evolution since. I believe fossilized evidence of a skull 36 inches in circumference would build a case for the creation account found in Genesis. But my critics still maintain that this only proves that one or some humans were of extraordinary size. Nothing more. But again I have to ask, what does a giant human really mean? Does it again point to Genesis or evolution?

Ancient technology
Anytime you dig up something too advanced for the time it was found in, to me enforces the idea that man before and after the flood had enormous intellects and sadly dumbed down as his lifespan has over the last 4500 years. When unearthed, the fragments of ancient technological wonders have been assigned by some to alien intervention, but most dismiss these artifacts altogether. What does it all mean?

Conclusion
To me, when you begin to add it all up: Giant People, Noahs Ark, Ancient Technology and Anomalous Fossils, it all seems to point to a world wide flood filled with genius giants before and shortly after the deluge. It says that the Genesis account found in the first pages of the Old Testament is an accurate, historical document. If what I’m saying strikes a cord with you then let’s find out if this hypothesis is correct.
