      "With its towering dinosaurs and a model of the Grand Canyon, America's
      newest tourist attraction might look like the ideal destination for
      fans of the film Jurassic Park.

      The new multi-million-dollar Museum of Creation, which will open this
      spring in Kentucky, will, however, be aimed not at film buffs, but at
      the growing ranks of fundamentalist Christians in the United States.

      It aims to promote the view that man was created in his present shape
      by God, as the Bible states, rather than by a Darwinian process of
      evolution, as scientists insist.

      The centrepiece of the museum is a series of huge model dinosaurs,
      built by the former head of design at Universal Studios, which are
      portrayed as existing alongside man, contrary to received scientific
      opinion that they lived millions of years apart.

      Other exhibits include images of Adam and Eve, a model of Noah's Ark
      and a planetarium demonstrating how God made the Earth in six days.

      The museum, which has cost a mighty $25 million (£13 million) will be
      the world's first significant natural history collection devoted to
      creationist theory. It has been set up by Ken Ham, an Australian
      evangelist, who runs Answers in Genesis, one of America's most
      prominent creationist organisations. He said that his aim was to use
      tourism, and the theme park's striking exhibits, to convert more people
      to the view that the world and its creatures, including dinosaurs, were
      created by God 6,000 years ago."

      And

      "Market research companies hired by the museum are predicting at least
      300,000 visitors in the first year, who will pay $10 (£5.80) each."

      How long a minute is depends on which side of the bathroom door you're
