All About Adam...And Eve genre: Hip-Gnosis & Tongue-In-Cheek

The Creation Museum is back in the news, although I doubt that this is the publicity they were hoping for since their recent opening of the facility. It seems that the actor for the museum's video on Adam and Eve has done his share of frolicking in the nude...and the location wasn't called the Garden of Eden.

From The SFGate.com:

The man who plays Adam in a video aired at a Bible-based creationist museum has led a different life outside the Garden of Eden, flaunting his sexual exploits online and modeling for a clothing line that promotes free love.

After learning about his activities Thursday, the Creation Museum in Kentucky pulled the 40-second video in which he appears.

"We are currently investigating the veracity of these serious claims of his participation in projects that don't align with the biblical standards and moral code upon which the ministry was founded," Answers for Genesis spokesman Mark Looy said in a written statement.

The actor, Eric Linden, owns a graphic Web site called Bedroom Acrobat, where he has been pictured, smiling alongside a drag queen, in a T-shirt brandishing the site's sexually suggestive logo. The Web site, which has a network of members, allows users to post explicit stories and photos.

He also sells clothing for SFX International, whose initials appear on clothing to spell "SEX" from afar. It promotes "free love,""pleasure" and "thrillz."

"For the Creation Museum, I did what I did as an actor. It doesn't necessarily mean I believe in evolution or a believe in creation," Linden said. "I'm hired to get a point across. On the flip side, if I was hired to play a murderer, that doesn't mean I'd go out and kill somebody. It's make-believe."

________________________________________________

I think Mr. Linden was a good choice for the museum's video on Adam and Eve...after all he was an actor playing a character in a fictitious depiction on the origin of man. Sounds like a match made in heaven.

When I read about this latest brouhaha, I remembered an editorial cartoon sent to me by a friend. I've included it below. Since we're focused on the story of Adam and Eve, we might as well get an alternate take on the fable...this one conforms to the beliefs one might have found in Afghanistan during the Taliban's heyday.
