Dinosaurs on the Ark?

There's an article in The Economist about a museum that opened last month in Petersburg, KY. It's called the Creation Museum, and it's a $27 million attempt to merge creation with evolution into a bizarre combination of science and religion.

Articles from Yahoo! News and the New York Times describe high-tech dioramas that have dinosaurs in the Garden of Eden, and even on Noah's Ark.

Here's my favorite quote, from Economist.com:

The museum says that, if Noah took two of every animal on his ark, he must have had dinosaurs. Could dinosaurs have fit into a boat only 300 cubits (about 135m) long? “It is likely that God brought young adults. Being smaller, they would be easier to care for.”
.
Yeah. Every animal on earth, and now little bitty dinosaurs, too. Sure. That's how it happened.
