Darwin-Free Fun for Creationists
By ABBY GOODNOUGH

Published: May 1, 2004

PENSACOLA, Fla., April 29 — Robert and Schön Passmore took their 
children to Disney World last fall and left bitterly disappointed. As 
Christians who reject evolutionary theory, the family scoffed at the 
park's dinosaur attractions, which date the apatosaurus, brachiosaurus 
and the like to prehistoric times.

"My kids kept recognizing flaws in the presentation," said Mrs. 
Passmore, of Jackson, Ala. "You know — the whole `millions of years ago 
dinosaurs ruled the earth' thing."

So this week, the Passmores sought out a lower-profile Florida 
attraction: Dinosaur Adventure Land, a creationist theme park and museum 
here that beckons children to "find out the truth about dinosaurs" with 
games that roll science and religion into one big funfest with the 
message that Genesis, not science, tells the real story of the creation.
