I think he watched too much Flintstones
The Australian man building a Noah’s ark in America has defied his critics again, unveiling a dinosaur fossil named “Ebenezer” he says proves humans lived alongside dinosaurs.
Ken Ham, the founder of the Creation Museum in Kentucky, will be unveiling a new exhibit of a 30-foot-long skeleton of an Allosaurus on Saturday.
The fossil resembles a Tyrannosaurus rex and is the centerpiece of a new exhibit called “Facing the Allosaurus”.
According to Answers in Genesis, the Christian ministry that owns the museum, 50 per cent of the skeleton’s bones were recovered when it was found in Colorado over a decade ago.
Keeping with its Bible-themed approach, the Creation Museum says the dinosaur died in a worldwide flood about 4,300 years ago. However, scientists say the last dinosaurs roamed the earth more than 60 million years ago.
