Encounter some of God’s Amazing Animal Creations!
We have expanded our animal exhibits and added some new amazing creatures!
And we are currently working on new enclosures to allow us to bring in more animals!
You may have been to The Creation and Earth History Museum in Santee, California, but have you had an up close encounter with the animals?
Did you know that the museum offers live animal shows?
Not only does the museum bring out certain animals during tours, but the “CREEPING THINGS” animal show will come to you!
CREEPING THINGS https://creationismandherpetology.wordpress.com/
Glorifying God – Spreading Appreciation for His Creation – Refuting Darwinist Dogma
With a traveling entourage of underappreciated and misunderstood companions, we will visit your school, church, or homeschool and put on a detailed presentation that is sure to spark the interest of minds young and old. Many of the secretive creatures around us are often dismissed out of hand as gross, dangerous, or even vicious without a second glance or thought. We believe that all of Creation works together according to His will and that every creature has a function and order among it. Within this order, there are the black-sheep “Creeping Things,” serving many crucial functions and performing thousands of fascinating tasks that go unnoticed everyday. Let us, quickly dispel many of the misconceptions about reptiles, amphibians, insects and arachnids that have become ingrained in our modern culture. Most of our animals are “kid friendly” and can be handled safely with our supervision and we do our best to get all of the observers to become participants. Our fun-fact-filled demonstrations usually last about 2 hours and contain about 10-20 animals. We currently can accommodate all of Southern California by appointment. You can visit the Creeping Things Facebook page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/CreepingThings
Many of our animals are currently on display in the Day 5 and Day 6 Exhibits of the museum and can be seen anytime Monday through Saturday 10 am to 6 pm. Others are behind the scenes and are used only for animal presentations. Look for more new animals coming soon to the Creation & Earth History Museum! Hope to see you there!
Brilliantly Built Bats – Creation Minute 7
Did you know that bats are considered “living fossils”?
On the subject of Bats…
*Have you heard of the biblical bat contradiction? You may have heard that the Bible is full of contradictions. Let’s examine one such supposed contradiction.
In Leviticus 11:13-19 a bat is called a bird, “These are the birds you are to detest and not to each because they are detestable: the eagle… and the bat.”
Everyone knows that a bat is not a bird! So is the Bible wrong?
The original Hebrew for bird is owph which means “winged creature”. So now replace “birds” with “winged creatures” and you can see that the Bible is clearly not contradicting itself.
If you think that there are contradictions in the Bible, it is most likely the translation that you are reading, so do some research to find what the original language actually said!
Gods word is perfect and simply cannot contradict itself.
Thy word is true from the beginning… Psalm 119:160

Have you seen the newest exhibit at the Creation & Earth History Museum?
These new displays focus on fantastic legends of dragons and how they mysteriously have a common theme; large reptilian beasts that often bear an uncommon resemblance to modern-day reconstructions of dinosaurs! You will find replicas of historical artifacts that depict eye-witness accounts of these creatures as well as scientific evidence for dinosaurs having roamed the earth in recent history.
Special thanks to Mark Armitage who provided these actual fossils that are a WORLD’S FIRST DISCOVERY! These very significant pieces of Triceratops horn and Triceratops frill are the first of their kind! Never before has a Triceratops horn or frill been found containing soft tissue and we have actual pieces of these fossils on display! Unfossilized soft tissue in dinosaur bones provides convincing evidence that the bones are not millions of years old. There is no known means that could preserve such tissues for such enormous periods of time. Microbes, and chemical and physical erosion would completely disintegrate the fragile tissues.
Stop by the museum today and ask to see these new amazing additions.

The Truth About Salt
Are you enjoying those salty fries? Have you ever wondered where the rock salt that was needed for that seasoning originated?
In addition to its famous role in the human diet, salt has numerous uses in chemical production and processing as well as in many other industries. Salt mining and production remains a major source of employment in the United States and across the world.
Although a lot of salt comes from distant locales such as Chile’s Great Salt Flat, there is a good chance that the salt used on your fries probably came from an enormous pure salt deposit covering an estimated 600,000 square miles deep below Northern Ohio and New York. The salt from this deposit is so pure that it can be ground up and immediately used for human consumption – containing essentially no contamination from sand, wind-blown dust, plant or animal fragments and debris, etc.
How did such an enormous deposit form? The standard explanation is that a salt water depression repeatedly filled and evaporated over huge periods of time, leaving the salt behind in what is called and evaporite formation.
Yet the ultra-pure characteristics and massive size of this deposit make that extremely unlikely. In fact, for a deposit that huge to form, it would have required a column of sea water 80 miles thick and the deepest ocean basin is only 7 miles deep! And that salt deposit would not be pure, but mixed with other sediment.
The Bible provides a better explanation for such deposits. During the worldwide flood, enormous vents opened up deep within the ocean as tectonic plates moved and continents were sliding into new positions. Today ocean vents spew forth supersaturated, mineral-laden fluids- but on a much smaller scale than what was happening during the flood. It is likely that an extremely supersaturated solution of salt formed in localized areas during the flood and as the supersaturated solution cooled, ultra-pure salt precipitated to form widespread salt deposits.
So as you reach for that salt shaker, realize that that salt was probably mined from a deposit laid down during Noah’s Flood.
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. Genesis 7:11
