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."

God has a sense of humor.

By the way, here’s a nice review of the Creation Museum.  Some snippets:

To begin with, the museum presents real science alongside its version; an aviary containing finches is the first thing to greet you as you began your tour. The finches were a profound influence on Darwin and his theory of natural selection and are still studied by evolutionary biologists today. Another display contained poison frogs. This was of particular interest to me, since they claim the reason poison frogs aren’t poisonous in captivity is due to the Almighty. I’m fairly sure it’s due to the lack of poisonous mites in their diet, but there you go.

The reviewer here is mistakenly applying things like facts, those pesky things designed by atheists to confuse people.

Surprisingly, I didn’t get much of a Flintstones vibe. I was expecting many more displays with Adam and Eve and T. Rex, whom we learn was a vegetarian in the days of yore, but with a couple of exceptions, dinosaurs and humans were separated by at least a few feet.

Well, of course.  Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to church every Sunday, didn’t you know that?  And to subtlly prove that point (or some point anyways), the Creation Museum has this:


By the way, did you know that all dinosaurs — ALL of them — were vegetarians?  It’s true!


See?  Dinosaurs were all vegetarians because this plaque says that the Bible says so!  Take that, Darwin!

That’s why Eve could hangout with this deadly cuddly velociraptor, whom she probably named "Dino":


Faith is no excuse for ignorance.  (Gotta love Eve’s modest Victorian-era clothes, by the way.)
