What are Biblical Glasses?
Biblical Glasses represent a worldview for all people and all time. Biblical
Glasses contradict today's popular secular worldview known as post-modernism,
humanism, or moral relativism.
The title for this book was inspired by Ken Ham,
the President of Answers
Answers in Genesis is a ministry that strives to uphold the truth of the

“The Creation Museum - A Time Machine!”
By Ken Ham, President, Answers in Genesis
Answers in Genesis (AiG) is in the process of constructing a large creation museum in Northern Kentucky, two exits west of the major Cincinnati Airport. This 50,000 sq. ft. facility will offer its visitors a Biblical walk through history starting from Genesis, Chapter 1.
As excitement builds for the opening of the creation museum, and as steel beams are being erected for this national center, I wanted to give you a glimpse of what will be in store for visitors when it finally opens. The following is a sneak preview - a part of the museum’s storyline. This outline is being used by our exhibit designers, who are working feverishly to design startling exhibits to present vital, Bible-upholding teachings.

The Creation Museum will present the true history of the universe. You’ll discover real answers to these and many other questions; you’ll see mysteries solved before your very eyes.
How these questions are answered depends on how we see things. Did you know that everyone really wears glasses?

Secular glasses represent the beliefs that fallible humans use to try to explain how and why the universe exists. These beliefs cause us to see these facts in a particular way, to view them through the following account of supposed history:
Biblical glasses are represented by a unique book, called the Bible, claiming over 3,000 times that it is the Word of God — written by an Infinite Being. God used different people to write down what we need to know to have the answers to understand the entire history and future of the universe. These “glasses” cause people to view the universe through this account of history:
