The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is an online community of pro-evolutionists who scorn the intelligent design camp’s idea of a designer by ascribing the designer the personality of a giant ball of pasta. Adherents are known as “Pastafarians.” Bobby Henderson runs the site.
The Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., is a 70,000-square-foot exhibition that promotes a literal view of the Bible and the creation story through lifelike displays that include depictions of human beings living alongside dinosaurs. The museum’s developers announced plans in December 2010 to build the Ark Encounter, a $150 million biblical theme park re-creating the story of Noah’s Ark as reconstructed from a literal reading of the book of Genesis. Ken Ham is president of the museum and the apologetics ministry Answers in Genesis.
