Anza Borrego Creation Destination

Did you know that the Creation and Earth History Museum offers creation-based field tours and trips?

We are gearing up for our exciting Anza Borrego Geology Tour coming this April! The yearly tour of our local San Diego County deserts is lead by renowned Creation geologist, Dr. Steve Austin, who has lead many geology tours throughout the United States and elsewhere. Dr. Austin is a very accomplished geologist, speaker, and author and is perhaps known best for his work on the nautiloid bed in the redwall limestone of the Grand Canyon or his field work on catastrophism at Mount Saint Helens. You can see more about Dr. Austin and his body of work here:

The Mouse Pyramids – Creation Minute 4

CM Logo Final J

The Mystery of the Mouse Pyramids

In the Sahara Desert, there lies a second, lesser known great pyramid mystery: the mystery of the mouse pyramids!




No, not those mouse pyramids.


Mice inhabiting the sandy Sahara desert are continually  found to be building strange stone pyramids in front of the entrances to their burrows. What could be the purpose of such deliberate structures?


The mice have a plan!


Biologists studying these mice have discovered that the mice almost exclusively use round stones to make these small pyramid-like constructions. The rounded shape allows air to flow freely around the smooth stones. During the night the temperature plummets and the stones become chilled, as the sun rises, the air heats up quickly, but the stones take longer to become hot. So moisture from the morning air condenses on the surfaces of the cool rocks and collects between the rounded edges. The mice then lick off the droplets. Believe it or not, this small bit of condensation is the primary source of water for these rodents!

Mouse Pyramids 4

The same anomaly has been found to occur in at least one species of mouse in Australia, (P. chapmani) but instead of small pyramids, their stone arrangements may be up to three feet across! Again, the rounded stone pyramids provide just the right shape as a dew trap to collect water. So these examples of “mouse ingenuity”  leave those who believe in evolution with some difficult questions. How exactly did these mice learn to design and compose such pyramids to catch the dew? And how did at least two different species, half a world apart, arrive at the same solution to provide their water source for survival?

Our infinitely creative and ingenious God clearly knew that these mice would need a way to survive in these hot landscapes, so He built this essential knowledge into their DNA so they can survive!

He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. Colossians 1:17

Dinosaurs Amongst the Flowers – Creation Minute 1

CM Logo Final J


Dinosaurs amongst the Flowers


Did you know that the fossil record clearly shows that dinosaurs walked among flowering plants such as poppies, rhododendron and pachysandra?


Evolutionists claim that plants have evolved over the eons and that the first flowering plant did not come into existence until after the dinosaurs, but secular paleontologists have found that dinosaurs lived amongst many of the same plants and flowers that are still around today!


Dino and flowers


Plants in the fossil record show little evidence of evolution through time! Most of these plant and dinosaur fossils were created by the catastrophic worldwide flood of Noah’s day, not slowly over millions of years!


We do not find plants changing over time because God created all plants on the third day of the Creation week! There has been plant variation throughout the last few thousand years, but this is simply variation among the created kinds. There is no fossil evidence of one kind of plant changing into another.


Dinosaurs really did tiptoe through the tulips!


 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
And the evening and the morning were the third day. Genesis 1:12-13

And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Genesis 1:24, 39

Grandstaircase Adventure Tour


Join us on the Grand Canyon-Grand Staircase Adventure!

The Grand Staircase refers to an immense sequence of sedimentary rock layers that stretch south from Bryce Canyon National Park through Zion National Park and into the Grand Canyon. In the 1870s, geologist Clarence Dutton first conceptualized this region as a huge stairway ascending out of the bottom of the Grand Canyon northward with the cliff edge of each layer forming giant steps.


Trip date: June 5-11 , 2014

7 Days & 6 Night Trip

Hosted by professional creation speaker and field tour guide Russ Miller of Creation, Evolution, Science Ministries

Russ Miller


$1199 per Adult, $799 for Children Ages 7-16

Prices based on double occupancy $300 deposit, balance due 4-1-14   

Grand Staircase:  Few are aware strata layers a mile deep are missing from above the rim of Grand Canyon (only a global flood can explain such erosion). The layers are picked up in The Grand Staircase which includes Bryce and Zion National Parks with remnants found near Grand Canyon.

bryceBryce, often referred to as a cave without a zionceiling, is at the top of the Staircase where the massive erosional event ended, leaving spires, arches and mazes in the multi-colored limestones.  Zion is a part of one of the steps and consists of towering sandstone cliffs and deep slot canyons, adorned in creamy, pink and red hues.

Add the one-day raft trip from the base of Glen Canyon Dam throughcanyon Glen Canyon (above) and Our “Grand Staircase Tour” is one powerful Creation-based journey. 


This trip includes visiting the Grand Canyon – North and South Rim, Zion Canyon, Bryce Canyon, a ½ day raft trip of Colorado River in Glen Canyon, hiking, round trip bus transportation from San Diego, quality hotel accommodations,  3 great meals per day, admission fees, and teaching on a geological evidences for the Genesis flood and the creationist model of life’s origins. Time is running out! Book your tour today!
