The new creationist museum in US opens
The world’s first creationist museum, which tells visitors the Earth is only about 6,000 years old has opened in Petersburg, Kentucky. It was the dream of Ken Ham, president of ‘Answers in Genesis’, a Christian ministry that promotes the idea that the Biblical book of Genesis should be taken literally in describing the creation of the world, life and humans as carried out by God over a six-day period a few thousand years ago. It propounds the most absurd and anti-scientific fables as if they were more true than the findings of an entire range of sciences. Read more here
But didn’t they ask the Creator Himself?
Why don’t these creationists realise that Sathya Sai Baba claims to be that very God! They might still be able to ask him straight off about how he did it all! The personality cultists of Sathya Sai Baba claim that anything up to 600 million people believe in him, and he pointedly stated he created the Universe (specifically not just the world!).
Critics of the Kentucky museum say the $27m (£14m) centre, whose motto is “Prepare to believe!”, will be the first museum in the world whose exhibits are almost entirely fake. But these critics are probably unaware that there are two more museums which hail the Creator in the person of Sathya Sai Baba with many equally false statements! To make sure this is all his power and glory is set in stone, Sai Baba has used millions of money donated (to help and educate the poor) to two museums in which he figures as God and the Creator (read some more?)! The telegraphy reporter and author of spiritual literature, Mick Brown, visited the first large Sai aba ‘Spiritual Museum’. (See Brian Steel’s summary of Mick Brown’s reactions)
The person at centre of the massive cult says:
“I have not come to set afoot a new cult, I do not want people to be misled on this point. I affirm that the Sai form is the form of all the various names that man uses for the adoration of the Divine. So, I am teaching that no distinction should be made between the names Rama, Krishna, Ishwara, Sai – for they are all My names.” (Discourse at 1st World Conference of Sathya Sai Seva Organisations in Bombay in May 1968. – Sathya Sai Speaks, VIII, pps 95-96)Sai Baba wrote a letter to students at Brindavan in 1974 (Janmashtami) in which he declared: “I have separated Myself from Myself, so that I may love Myself. My beloved ones, you are ‘My Own Self’” And Prof. N. Kasturi comments on this “This is only further evidence supporting Baba’s declaration that He created the universe of Himself, with one word, to become all this diversity (ekoham, bahusyaam). (p. 156 Vol. 4 Sathya , Sivam, Sundaram – the official biography) “God can do anything. He has all Power in the palm of His Hand. My Body, like all other bodies, is a temporary habitation; but, My Power is eternal, all-pervasive, ever-dominant.” (p.136 Vol 3. Sathya , Sivam, Sundaram US edition ).More on these creationists and the Sai Baba ‘teaching’ later….
