KENTUCKY: Creation Museum To Build "Full-Scale Replica" Of Noah's Ark
The famed/infamous Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky has announced plans to build a "full-scale replica" of Noah's Ark. SRSLY.
The $24.5 million project will be constructed by the same team that built the Creation Museum. The religious ministry is soliciting online donations to help construct the project, which they expect to draw an estimated 1.6 million visitors per year. Ken Ham, president and CEO of Answers In Genesis, cites poll data showing that an estimated 63 percent of Americans would visit a full-scale replica of Noah's Ark if one were built in the U.S. "We see a full-scale, wooden ark as something so significant that it will shake up this nation," Ham said. "It would be a clear reminder to America about the truths of the Bible. The building of a huge ark is a unique and powerful opportunity to reach millions in our nation (and around the world) with a bold statement: God's word is true."The dinosaur stalls will be hilarious.
