Giant Horseshoe Crab, Blanchester, OH

Built for the Baltimore Maritime Museum, the giant horseshoe crab was purchased by the Creation Museum in Kentucky, then, in 2006, moved to its current location outside the Freedom Worship Baptist Church in Blanchester on State Route 28. Measuring 68 feet by 24 feet, the oversize sea creature is a favored church mascot: having changed little in 570 million years, it adds weight to the argument for creationism. —Adam McCulloch
