I'm a practical scientist (Aerospace engineer), Board treasurer for a non-related non-profit, and a long-time AiG donor. AiG interprets the Bible in a straightforward manner, which is as it should be. No one stands as Judge over the Bible, so as long as AiG stands with the Bible, enough said. AiG may be doing more for mankind and the USA than most non-profits, but sometimes the people who are out of touch with reality don't realize they are out of touch. It takes a touch from their Creator to get on the reality axis. I wasn't there, but an eye-witness reports that dinosaurs and humans were indeed created at the same approximate time. The flood of Noah's day explains a whole lot more geological evidence than any other theory we have, not to mention the eye-witness reports. Keep up the good work, AiG.

I"m sorry, but dinosaurs and people never lived together. This "museum" is a stain on Kentucky.

Whatever your position on the creation/evolution debate, I believe that AIG is entirely sincere in their beliefs. They are ultimately promoting the authority of the Bible, and I find that to be a noble cause. A lot of people do not believe in mixing science with faith, but I believe that the scientists at AIG are doing what we are told to do in Romans 12: they are using the abilities that God gave them in service to Him. The focus of AIG is on the book of Genesis, and particularly the creation account, but they are an apologetics ministry that deals with many issues concerning the Bible. When I have a question concerning scripture, I usually check the AIG website first for the answer. However, I devote a lot of time to study, and I always look at both sides of an issue. Thus far, I have not been impressed with the opponents of AIG.

I receive mail and email from AIG, but it is not overwhelming as with other charities; most of what I receive is newsletters that I registered to get.

I judge this organization based on what I see. Their scientists have the credentials, but those that I have seen display humility. At the Creation Museum, I was impressed that the scientists/speakers were so accessible. At the Stargazers Night event, Dr. Jason Lisle was willing to take as many questions as we wished to ask.

I donate to various charities often, but I have been most impressed by the personal interaction with AIG. Each time I have donated, I have received a hand-written thank-you note. One staff member even offered to pray for me, and then responded to my request with a hand-written note. Every staff member that I have dealt with has been entirely pleasant. In my view, AIG reflects Christian love and values.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have donated to AIG a couple of times, and the personal thank-you notes I received made me feel as if I am making a difference. I recently visited the Creation Museum in Kentucky and listened to a couple of their scientists speak. The whole experience was life-changing for me. I regularly use the AIG website for the study of apologetics; the website contains a wealth of information, which has been invaluable to me as I seek to expand my knowledge and understanding of the Bible.

Perhaps add some information to the Creation Museum exhibits. My husband had questions about the 6000-year number, and about theistic evolution, and he did not see the answers in the museum.

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

I believe in the authority of the Bible, and so I believe in the mission of AIG.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

I have used the AIG website so frequently and gained so much from it, that I feel I should give something back.

What would you tell others about this organization?

It has been a joy for me to deal with AIG. All of the staff members that I have dealt with are friendly, humble, and helpful. For these reasons, I believe this organization does well in reflecting Christian values. For me personally, it was well worth the 8-hour drive to visit the Creation Museum. If you are someone who believes in an evolutionary view, I would encourage you to try and approach AIG with an open mind. If you come to it with hostility, you will probably walk away with just that.

Regardless of your personal view of the subject matter this organization is in dire financial position, even for a non-profit.

Their main assets are held within the museum they require for their operation, if we remove mission critical these assets from consideration then their total
assets are around $4,000,000 with total liabilities of $11,000,000 and only $220,000 cash on hand. This organization is playing rather hard and fast with liquidity.

Further more the presidents entire family is on the payroll and the organization makes regular purchases from for profit companies owned and operated by board members. Including over $1,000,000 to Board Member Tim Dudley and new leaf publishing.

Although I have no doubt these transactions are within the letter of the law (considering the hefty amount of money they spend on legal consulting even though they also pay an in house lawyer) it always gives me pause when I see the personal enrichment of those responsible for the stewardship of public funds. Including Ken Ham doubling his compensation from $80,000 to $170,000 over the course of one year.

AIG Officer Compensation: $586,000 (5 officers)

Ham family Compensation: $322,000

And all of this while revenue at the organization dropped 13%

Answers in Genesis fully lives up to its mission statement. Their materials are professional and very useful. They approach the subject of creation with scientific accuracy, while maintaining Biblical integrity. They always adhere to high standards in logic, evidence and research. There would be a lot less heat on this topic if all others would do the same.

AiG promotes a Biblcial worldview. They bring to life the accounts recorded in the Bible and their relevance to the world in which we live today. They engage our culture and society by exposing opinions that are generally accepted as fact. The Creation Museum is a professional display of world history from a Biblical perspective. I highly recommend spending at least on full day at the museum. Their apologetics resources help Christians defend their faith with a Biblical interpetation of the facts.

Timeliness of shipping resources could be improved. Also it would be great to have another special effects presentation other than "Men in White" in the special effects theatre.
