Can someone explain to a non-American why "God put the fossils there to test/trick us" seems to have been abandoned in favor of the much more falsifiable "Dinosaurs lived with people 3000 years ago"? Was it because kids really wanted to see dinosaurs at the Creationist Museum?
Probably because it's more satisfying to claim that scientists and their godless heathen allies are perpetrating a great hoax against poor persecuted Christians, than to concede that scientists are "apparently" right but in reality God is playing tricks on everyone.
In America, facts are whatever you want to believe.
A lot of them admit up front that the reason they talk about dinosaurs and people together is because it appeals. Telling kids that believing in God means not believing in dinosaurs will lead to them rejecting the former. Telling them that believing in God maybe lets them play with dinosaurs and it's the meany 'scientists' who claim their dead, works better.
