Ministries say expeditions to archaeological sites support creationism

Quote
A San Antonio ministry that subscribes to creationism is giving home-schooled children a chance for hands-on learning at archaeological digs that it says enhances the youths' knowledge of both science and faith.

Vision Forum is a 5-year-old evangelical Protestant ministry that provides instructional materials for Christian home-schooling parents across the country. Last year it began booking family expeditions with a Florida-based ministry, Creation Expeditions, to archaeological sites they believe support biblical claims that God created the world in six days.


The sites discussed in the article relate to paleontology instead of archaeology.

Some of their finds are to be evaluated at the Black Hills Institute for Geological Research, Inc.  The Black Hills folks have long been controversial for their illegal excavations, and commercial practices (they were the outfit that sold the T. rex known as "Sue".)

It is true that many paleontologists buy and sell fossils, but this is rarely their principle source of support.  A fun book on the early years of American paleontology is "The Bone Wars."
