What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

I know a certain seasharkgull would who's avatar represents making a mockery of evolution and obviously this site either encouraged him or he hasn't yet found these like-minded... Ummm promoters.  Glad you saw this too.

Maybe they should try Kickstarter.
It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

Heck no.  They are a financial catastrophe.

Is Answers in Genesis a for-profit or not-for-profit organization?  In other words do they rely on investors or donations for their revenue?

From Wiki:

[wiki]Answers in Genesis[/wiki] (AiG) is a non-profit, fundamentalist, creationist apologetics ministry with a particular focus on supporting young Earth creationism (YEC), rejecting the scientific consensus on common descent and on the age of the Earth. It also advocates a literal interpretation of the Genesis creation narrative and claims the correct understanding of natural phenomena reveals its interpretation of Genesis to be scientifically accurate.

Answers in Genesis owns the Creation Museum. Answers in Genesis is also currently creating the Ark Encounter, a full-size replica of Noah's Ark. The organization has offices in the United Kingdom and the United States. It had offices in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa, but in 2006 these seceded to form 'Creation'.

Like any religious con, they are most definitely for the profit of those who own the business, but the wrap themselves in religion so they can claim nonprofit status to avoide taxes.

Apparently they do not embrace the Prosperity Doctrine as exemplified by Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker some decades ago.  Otherwise, they would be awash in money.

I see where Ken Ham had a debate with Bill Nye (the Science Guy) a year ago and they still revel in their "victory".  Oddly, Nye also sees it as a victory for his viewpoint.  It is my opinion any time an Apologist ends a discussion by not changing their mind, they see it as a victory.  :)
