AiG has updated it's history page. PrometheusX303 20:41, 24 April 2006 (GMT)

Yes, I saw that just before coming here. The front-page article announcing it reads:
Dozens of media outlets have been contacting AiG–U.S. in recent times about the Creation Museum under construction near the Cincinnati Airport, and many of them have been asking for a short history of AiG and the museum for background to their stories. So a few days ago, we decided to update the “History of AiG” section on our website...
Yet with the level of detail about relations between AiG-U.S. and CMI it is clearly not just designed as a short history for media representatives. And despite that level of detail in some areas, it totally ignores mention of the other former AiG (now CMI) organisations in New Zealand, Canada, and South Africa.
I believe that the following statement in the history is at the very least misleading:
...Dr. Carl Wieland (editor/founder of Creation magazine, which he had handed over to CSF in 1979 after the first two issues)...
There is no mention of the Creation Science Association which Carl Wieland started in Adelaide (South Australia) prior to the organisations that Ken Ham and John Mackay started in Brisbane (Queensland), and the quote above reads as though Carl Wieland's and Ken Ham/John Mackay's organisations were quite distinct. Compare this to the following quote from the CMI web-site:
In 1979/80, CSA joined forces with the Queensland group (which became Creation Science Foundation Ltd (CSF) in 1980 ...
As I have previously documented, the magazine up to vol. 3 No. 1 was published by the Creation Science Association, with headquarters in Brisbane, indicating that CMI's statement that they "joined forces" is correct.
Much of that is trivia, but I think that it is indicative of the slant of AiG's history article (and there is more I could comment on but would probably get into trouble for doing so).

Addition

Who removed my addition of information on No Answers in Genesis? I know it's an insane site and I know that Stear is an idiot, but I still think there should be a link to it from this page (so more people can find out how stupid it is). Scorpionman 20:22, 4 May 2006 (GMT)

Check the history. It was Ashcraft. He probablty felt it didn't belong there. PrometheusX303 21:56, 4 May 2006 (GMT)
  • I am in agreement with Scorpionman. I know it is more than a year later, but I think it would be valuable to at least link to a No answers in genesis Page or perhaps explain.--Tylerdemerchant 17:48, 28 October 2007 (EDT)
