Creationist actor's porno past is 'revealed'

In a video shown at a new museum purporting to demonstrate how God created the universe, actor Eric Linden portrays Adam breathing life's first breath.

A jaunt around the Internet shows Linden posing alongside a drag queen on an explicit Web site he owned called Bedroom Acrobat, the Associated Press reports. The Web site allows its network of members to post explicit stories and photos, AP reports.

When it learned of Linden's activities with the Web site, 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," a spokesman for Answers in Genesis, which built the newly opened museum, said in a written statement to AP.

A note on the Bedroom Acrobat site, accessed by RAW STORY Friday morning, says it is being re-launched and Linden is no longer affiliated with the site in any way.

"We are here as a comical, silly and extremist view of sex as a whole, not a porn site!! Relax and laugh a little ..." the site says. "And if you are not a Bedroom Acrobat, that is you and your significant others (sic) problem, not mine!"

An archived version of the page from last year describes it as "the domain of the sexually advanced."

Linden also sells clothing for SFX international, whose logo appears to spell "SEX" from afar, AP reported.

A native of Columbus, Ohio, Linden now lives in Los Angeles and told AP that he handed off control of the Bedroom Acrobat site. He told AP he has great respect for the founders of the Creation Museum.

"For the Creation Museum, I did what I did as an actor. It doesn't necessarily mean I believe in evolution or a believe in creation," Linden said. "I'm hired to get a point across. On the flip side, if I was hired to play a murderer, that doesn't mean I'd go out and kill somebody. It's make-believe."
