Michael Peroutka, 2004 Constitution Party Presidential Nominee, Donates Valuable Allosaurus Skeleton to Creation Museum

This article in the Capital Gazette of Annapolis, Maryland, says that 2004 Constitution Party presidential nominee Michael Peroutka recently donated a 30 foot long Allosaurus skeleton to the Creation Museum. The skeleton is valued anywhere from $200,000 to $1,000,000. The article explains how Peroutka came to own the skeleton.

Peroutka polled 143,630 votes for President in 2004. That was the party’s third best presidential vote total; the only ones that were higher were 1996 and 2008.

    If the Creation Museum thinks dinosaurs and man were on the planet simultaneously, then the Bible story of Noah should mean that the Ark had a male and female dinosaur aboard, so the dinosaurs would have survived. It doesn’t seem to help the message of the Creation Museum to have their visitors reminded of dinosaurs.

    In my humble opinion, to the best of my knowledge of the museum and the ministry, it is not a matter of the ministry believing that dinosaurs lived with man, but that the Bible states that dinosaurs lived with man, and thus the ministry believing the Bible. God references to Job (in Job 41:1) in the present tense regarding leviathan, meaning leviathan was a creature of which Job was aware. The text in Job 41 (continuing through the rest of the chapter) strongly indicates that it is a dragon or dinosaur, and cannot be mistaken for other creatures. Other references to leviathan are (Job 3:, Psalm 74:14, Psalm 104:26, and Isaiah 27:1). Lastly, for now, the average size of a dinosaur was 3 feet tall (so there was plenty of room on the Ark) and yes, there was at least one male and one female. Noah did not need to put every type of dinosaur on the Ark, just one type was all that was required.

      Should state Job 3:8 above…

      Forget dinos. Howa out insects? For instamce, there are approximateky 400,000 species of beetles alone. Where were those 800,000 beetles kept, I wonder? In Noah’s glove compartment?

      This is a fine example of why religion and state need to be separate. We have enough fantasy inlluencing public policy alreafywithout relying on fairy tales, however many copies of any given book of fairy tales may have been published over the years.

      IMHO, of course.

  3. Peroutka has joined the Republican party and just won – narrowly – a primary fro a town council seat.
