Not exactly sailing, but there is a “boat” involved….
If there was any doubt that the creationist kooks are bat shit crazy, it has now been officially removed. Spending $73 million dollars to build a “replica” of something that was in a book that, among other things, claims that the earth is 6,000 years old, and that man roamed the earth with dinosaurs, the insanity of the fundys in this country is now – or soon will be – on display: They are pissing away $125.6 million to build a pretend version of a pretend boat.
Creation Museum founder Ken “all men are sinners” Ham announced Thursday that enough money had been raised to begin construction of a 510-foot “replica” of Noah’s Ark as part of a multimillion-dollar Ark Encounter project. The Ark Encounter will sit on 800 acres of land in Williamstown, Ky., and will be developed “in phases over many years,” according to a press release from Ham’s Answers in Genesis organization. The first phase alone will cost an estimated $73 million. Read on and watch Bill Nye shred the fairy tale of Noah’s Ark here.
