It is getting a little difficult to keep up with the latest news concerning Australian creationist Ken Ham’s Ark Encounter theme park in Kentucky, but let’s try. I promise you, it’s worth it.
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.

When Australian creationist Ken Ham pitched the idea of building a giant Noah’s Ark in a rural area of Kentucky, folks in the community of Williamstown got excited. Many of them were certain that the ark would become a major tourist attraction and bring visitors – and their cash – to this struggling area.
