So why share any of them with you? Well, what really hit our staff who had to deal with these was how evil many in these younger generations are. We all know the X, Y (millennials), and Z generations are much more secularized than the older generations like Boomers, Silent, and Greatest. Researcher George Barna found generation Z (those currently 5–25 years old) are twice as likely to be atheists than any previous generation. We are actually observing the consequences of this across the nation and also in the exodus of the younger generations from the church.

Let me give you the context for the above statements. Recently I posted an item about phase one of the new Fearfully and Wonderfully Made exhibit that will be open to the public at the Creation Museum on September 25, 2020. This was originally going to be installed in July, but because of the COVID shutdown, we have been delayed by two months.
This exhibit is going to be stunning. Our design team (artists, sculptors, etc.) searched for models of the development of a child in a mother’s womb from fertilization, but couldn’t find the quality they wanted. So they spent hundreds of hours of research and produced our own models that can only be described as absolutely spectacular. Our design team even came up with a way to make a number of the models translucent so the organs can be seen inside them. As far as we know, there’s nothing like them anywhere else. This is one of the photos I included in my post. By the way, some atheists reported this translucent model photo, and as you can see, Facebook hid it!
Signs and videos will present information to go along with these models. We believe this exhibit will be one of the world’s most powerful challenges, biblically and scientifically, to those who support abortion. (And abortion is a big issue in the USA in this coming election!) This exhibit will help parents train their children (and grandchildren) to have a truly Christian worldview on this issue and know how to challenge those who support abortion. And this is just phase one.
I was excited to see how these models were being produced and the exhibit as it is being constructed. I took photos and wrote a post on my Facebook page to excite supporters with what’s happening. So many of you supported this exhibit financially, and I wanted to give an update.
After I posted the item (that now has thousands of comments), we saw hundreds of comments as people enthusiastically supported this and expressed how thrilled they were that this exhibit would be opening soon. Then suddenly, many vile, blasphemous, evil, and hateful comments started appearing. We discovered the main reason for this was that someone shared the post with an atheist Facebook discussion group. My Facebook post was flooded with comments so vile that they shocked our staff who are used to monitoring our social media sites to hide and ban those who attack like this. Another startling fact they found was that on checking the profiles of those making these vile, blasphemous, hateful comments, the majority appeared to be women in their 20s. If you’d rather not read the comments, please skip this next section.
