When I was in Northern Ireland earlier this month, we noticed that a brief movie review appeared in a newspaper just to the south of us in the Republic of Ireland. The Irish Times on August 10 offered a brief review of the movie Ice Age: Continental Drift and it alluded to our Creation Museum. Here is how it read.
Ice Age: Continental Drift
Directed by Steve Martino and Mike Thurmeier. Voices of Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Lopez, Seann William Scott.
The latest indifferently animated Ice Age flick passes the time amiably in the manner of a mid-budget Saturday morning cartoon. Suburban mammoths argue. The squirrel is still funny. Ho-hum. The film is, however, remarkable in one regard. Showing a disdain for science that would seem extreme at a hearing on the teaching of creationism in Kentucky, Continental Drift argues that North America tore itself from Africa in an afternoon. Pardon? G cert., gen. release, 92 min. [emphasis ours]
So not only was there an allusion to our creationist ministry in Kentucky (most likely a reference to our Creation Museum, which has been mentioned in the Irish press a few times over the years) but also to our belief that the continents separated relatively quickly and did not “drift” over millions of years as the secularists believe.

However, the exciting thing in regard to such exposure is that I do see the Creation Museum, AiG, etc. being referenced or alluded to around the world. There is no doubt that this ministry has made an international impact—regardless of how the secular press portrays us. By the way, here is what a Northern Ireland columnist wrote about our recent ministry tour.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
