    Creation Museum Creating Quite the Stir over Fig Leaf

    Registration records show that Eric Linden, who portrays Adam taking his first breath in a film at the newly opened Creation Museum, owns a graphic Web site called Bedroom Acrobat. He has been pictured there, smiling alongside a drag queen, in a T-shirt brandishing the site’s sexually suggestive logo.

    Linden, a graphic designer, model and actor who grew up in Columbus, also sells clothing for SFX International, whose initials appear on clothing to spell “SEX” from afar and serve as an abbreviation for its mascot, who promotes “free love,” “pleasure” and “Thrillz.”

    The museum’s operators, informed Thursday by The Associated Press of Linden’s online appearances, acted swiftly to suspend airing of the 40-second video in which he appeared.

    The clip is one of 55 featured on tours of the museum, near Cincinnati in Petersburg, Ky., which tells the Bible’s version of Earth’s history that the planet was created in a single week just a few thousand years ago.

    “We are currently investigating the veracity of these serious claims of his participation in projects that don’t align with the biblical standards and moral code upon which the ministry was founded,” Answers for Genesis spokesman Mark Looy said in an e-mail statement.

    Holy fig leaf, Batman!

    Ken Hamm's new Creation Museum is 'creating' quite the stir. Did you see this? I did have to chuckle at the irony of it all. And, yes, this is a real story... even on a Friday: "The man picked as Adam by a museum based on the Bible's version of Earth's history led quite a different life outside the Garden of Eden, flaunting his sexual exploits online and modeling for a line of clothing with an explicit mascot..."

      I want to go on record as saying that I am no relation to Ken.

      I am just glad God made a fig tree and it was not only a pine tree in those days.

      Okay it is Friday and I can be funny today, but my mothers voice is still ringing in my ear about self control.  That is why I am not going to say anything about pine nuts, pine needles or pine cones. 

      I really does feel good to use self control, thanks mom.

      Hey Leonard…. I was utilizing my self control yesterday (Friday) by not responding back to you. While I could have ran with jokes…. I had work to do…
