Ken Ham, the Australian creationist who decided to build a replica of Noah’s Ark on the backs of Kentucky’s taxpayers, may have finally gone too far.
Americans United has long been skeptical that Ark Encounter, a proposed theme park in Kentucky that will feature a 510-foot replica of Noah’s Ark, could ever live up to the enormous projected attendance figures claimed by its leadership in order to secure public assistance. As it turns out, the numbers submitted by Ark Encounter were indeed wildly inflated.
As time passes, the “Ark Park” in Kentucky is beginning to look more and more like a sinking ship.
Americans United has been highly critical of the proposed theme park, which would include a full-scale replica of Noah’s Ark and models of dinosaurs, which Answers in Genesis (AiG), the group heading the project, insists were carried on the biblical boat.
