The Creation Museum in Kentucky aims to scientifically prove a literal reading of the Bible. There’s a replica of the Garden of Eden, a Natural Selection Room that argues against evolution, and this week, they’re opening a life-sized Noah’s Ark. But the scholars Susan and William Trollinger say it’s a big mistake to dismiss this as wacky or irrelevant. Wednesday, they join Doug to explain what The Creation Museum teaches us about American fundamentalism and why we should be paying attention.
