Otis E. Kline, Jr., director of the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum, leads a tour of the $1.5 million, 20,000 square foot facility.
Video on the development of the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum with murals and artwork by Melanie Richard of Billings, photos by Otis Kline, Jr. and music composed and performed by Leon Young.
"The first time we saw it all at once was when she spread it out over her yard," said Otis Kline Jr., the museum's founder.
"We are totally different from the Museum of the Rockies in that we present fossils and all the exhibits in the context of biblical creation," said Otis E. Kline Jr., the museum's founder and director.
"It shows how utterly complex life is, so complex it couldn't have evolved or developed by chance," Kline said.
The long skeletal tail of a 40-foot mosasaur, a reptile-like marine predator, loops teasingly through the wall, coaxing visitors around a corner to see the serpentine creature dangling with its head at eye level.
"We approach evolution on the basis that it's basically not possible," Kline said.
"There's two ways these fossils could get to Kansas, and one is the evolutionary way; the other is the biblical creation way," Kline said.
About 80 percent of the funding came from Montana, said Kline, a businessman who lived in the Bitterroot Valley for 23 years before moving to Glendive in the spring of 2003.
Before Kline broke ground, Atwood saw a news story on the museum.
"When I first met with Otis, I wondered, 'Was he going to be one of these guys who shoves things down your throat?' And he wasn't," Atwood said.
Two brothers, Darrell and Earl Sevier, of Glendive, put in the building's steel studs and exhibit railings and worked with Kline on the bulk of the sheet rocking.
Kline also traded excavation work at dinosaur digs for museum replicas.
Kline just finished excavating a dinosaur in the Cerotopsian family, a family that includes dinosaurs with horns and frills like the more familiar triceratops.
In April of 2005, Kline broke ground on the museum, building it without ever having to borrow money, take on debt or halt construction for lack of funds, he said.
He saw the finances falling into place as confirmation he was on the right track.
"There's over 80 places now, around the world, where evidence shows that people actually reproduced dinosaurs in one art form or another," Kline said.
The artwork of those early civilizations accurately depicted dinosaurs, he said.
"The only way that can happen is if they have seen the creature," he said.
Kline sometimes uses scientific findings to bolster his arguments.
You can take that to the bank," Kline said.
A nearby biblical history exhibit illustrates how God's words have been perfectly preserved, Kline said. Biblical references to behemoths and leviathans seem to him to be descriptions of dinosaurs.
His own interest in dinosaurs dates back to his childhood, when he spent his lawn-mowing money to buy a fossil that was being used as a doorstop.
Kline grew up in northern Illinois and had a successful career in business as a bank trust officer, stockbroker and land developer. He put together a retirement community outside Yuma, Ariz., before moving to the Bitterroot Valley in 1981, where he and his wife started a home health-care business.
"Petersen convinced me you can't combine oil and water, you can't combine evolution and the Bible," Kline said.
In 1991, Kline joined a dinosaur dig in Canada led by Petersen and saw the profound effect digging up fossils had on "believers."
In January of 2003, Kline bought 37 acres near what is now the museum as a dig site.
Kline knows of two other creation-based museums with dinosaur exhibits. One is in San Diego; the other, in Petersburg, Ky., south of Cincinnati.
"We dig dinosaurs here," Kline said.
Schools groups from both public and private schools in Montana and North Dakota have also visited, but Kline declined to mention names of specific schools.
Kline attended some early meetings of the Dinosaur Trail group, he said. But he left the organization when the group adopted the slogan "150 million years in the making."

Otis E. Kline Jr., founder and director of the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum, will give a Power Point presentation on the Biblical account of creation at Sidney Church of the Nazarene at 11 a.m. Sunday.
Kline says the museum presents dinosaurs and fossils in a Biblical context.
" Mr. Kline's scientific qualifications are what? His theorem/materials/presentation have been vetted by what peer-review panel? Is there any linkage of Mr. Kline's presentation to reality other than the fact that yes, there were once dinosaurs that roamed the earth.
