Noah’s Ark Theme Park Announced


Last week Ken Ham, the founder and president of Answers in Genesis, announced his group’s next project- Ark Encounter.

Ham is probably best known for doing his part to promote a literal reading of the book of Genesis.  In 2007, he opened up the Creation Museum– a shrine dedicated to all things young-earth.     The Ark Encounter promises to have, among other things, a full scale replica of Noah’s Ark- complete with petting zoo.  The formal announcement (video below) was made by Kentucky governor Steve Beshear, who seems mostly excited about the economic possibilities.

There have been a variety of good and bad responses to the announcement, but one of the more thoughtful ones can be read here, as he laments the “disney-ification” of our faith.  Take a read.
