That’s right kiddies. Ken Ham the snake oil man who brought you the “Creationist Museum” is now going to build a full size replica of Noah Ark for $150 million. (I wonder what amount of good that money could do if it was spent on educating girls in Africa…) The article doesn’t have specs but from this drawing included, it looks like it might be the size of an air craft carrier…
“In addition to the full-size Ark, the complex will include a walled city much like those found in ancient times, live animal shows, a children’s interactive play area, a replica of the Tower of Babel with exhibits, a 500-seat 5-D special effects theater, an aviary, and a first-century Middle Eastern village.”
What I would really like to know is if Ken is going to make it an actual boat out of wood or if it’s just going to be a boat shaped building. Will their be electricity, running water, and air conditioning inside? And I think he has the size way off. The boat would have to be a couple thousand times bigger to hold all the species of plants and animals in the world, plus the daily food and water intake needed to keep them alive. And what about the fresh water fish? If all the waters of the world mixed they would all die from the salt…but who am I kidding? That’s logic and doesn’t belong here.
You know, now that I think about it, if lightning strikes the $150 million ark and destroys it like it did the giant touchdown Jesus statue, I might actually convert and start believing in a god….
