From the Miami Herald, Florida: Pensacola - The hand-painted sign outside the parking lot promised a Darwin-free dinosaur encounter: "Where Dinosaurs and the Bible meet!"
Inside Dinosaur Adventure Land, a creationist theme park that sits behind a string of car dealerships on a busy commercial strip in Pensacola, a group of 50 home-schooled children romped in the muggy afternoon heat.
Some played on the Long Neck Liftasaurus swing seat, while others dug for fossils or tossed water balloons at a T-Rex and stegosaurus zip-lined down the Pterodactyl Glide while learning "the truth about dinosaurs."
"Dinosaurs were big lizards who lived with Adam and Eve," park founder Kent Hovind told children and their parents during a presentation on dinosaurs and the book of Genesis. [US, Tyrannosaurus, News, Evolution and Creationism]
