The mission of the Foundation Advancing Creation Truth and its related ministries is to glorify God as Creator and Sustainer, emphasize man's accountability to Him, and challenge the hearer/visitor to think through the humanistic concept of evolution.
Currently this is achieved through the Fossil Digs at Glendive, the Glendive Dinosaur & Fossil Museum and speakers furnished by the foundation to speak to your church, group or organization about the scientific evidence for the truth of God's Word.
The Fossil Dig at Glendive allows the participant to learn how to excavate dinosaur bones and other fossils and also see the geological evidence that confirms the flood of Noah's day.
The Glendive Dinosaur & Fossil Museum is dedicated to the glory of God the Creator and challenges the visitor to think seriously about issues related to "origins." To accomplish this the museum asks the visitor five questions:
- Did mankind evolve from microbes purely as a result of accidental forces, or was life on earth divinely created making us accountable to our Creator?
- Where does the evidence lead? Does it indicate a slow progression of organism from simple to complex over long periods of time through millions of transitional forms, or does it show creatures suddenly appearing on earth fully formed and complete?
- Did the "fossil record" accumulate slowly over hundreds of millions of years on a planet billions of years old, or does it point to catastrophic fossilization and a mush "younger" earth?
- Did the dinosaurs die out 65 million years ago, or did they co-exist with man and diminish within the last five thousand years?
- Is there such a thing as irreducible complexity? Do recent scientific discoveries prove that life is far too complex for chance forces to produce - even in a "simple" cell - or could a random series of mutations over time account for the amazingly intricate mechanisms found in all living things?
Exhibits in the museum answer these questions with dinosaur and other fossil exhibit presentation and information being supplemented by the latest in paleontological, geological, archeological, and other scientific discoveries.
