This is the only news we could find today, so make of it what you will. It’s at the website of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) — the fountainhead of young-earth creationist wisdom. This is their headline: T. rex is here! We’ll give you some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Wanna come face-to-face with this toothy tyrannosaur? Visit the ICR Discovery Center for Science and Earth History when it opens in 2019! The Discovery Center will showcase an abundance of evidence that confirms the accuracy of the Bible.
Ooooooooooooh! Exciting! Let’s read on:
T. rex is making his home in the Post-Flood World exhibit hall [Where else?] for two reasons. First, ICR will show how well Genesis explains dinosaurs, including evidence that they roamed Earth both before and after the Genesis Flood. [Hee hee!] Second, this particular exhibit hall is the only place he would fit!
Fascinating! They tell us:

Sounds wonderful. And now we come to the end:
Stay tuned for more Discovery Center news. Our dynamic dino can’t wait to meet you!
Better make your reservations early, dear reader. That place is going to be crowded!
