DECATUR — A prominent museum founder will be visiting a local church this weekend.

Carl Baugh, founder and director of the Creation Evidence Museum, will be at Volinia Baptist Church from Sept. 29 to 30. He will be speaking at 7 p.m. Saturday evening on Sept. 29. He will also be speaking on Sunday, Sept. 30 during Sunday School at 9:45 a.m., morning service at 11 a.m., and at 6 p.m. Sunday evening. The services are free and open to the public.

Baugh is the scientific research director of the world’s first hyperbaric biosphere, simulating earth’s atmospheric conditions before the world wide flood of Noah’s day. He is the discoverer and excavation director of 16 dinosaurs, including Acrocanthosaurus in Texas and Diplodocus in Colorado.

He began his excavation project on the Paluxy River in Glen Rose, Texas in March 1982. Since that time, Baugh, along with teams of volunteers, has uncovered more than 400 dinosaur tracks and more than 80 human footprints in Cretaceous limestone.

In 1990, he was co-director of an expedition searching for the Ark on Mt. Ararat. After 40 years of research in this area, he directed the construction of a 25-foot replica of the Ark now in the museum, and holds a U.S. Patent on the gopher wood process.

Carl Baugh lectures internationally on evidence for scientific creation on television and radio, and in schools, churches, and various organizations. He lectures against the theory of evolution and for the Biblical account and theory of creation.
