Our horse barn (my dad actually used plow horses until after WWII) -- has concrete..... The main barn floor -- creosote soaked hardwoods.....(oak, maple, hickory).....

Noah's Ark Park attendance projections cut in half

Based on estimates of opening day attendance at 7,000 Ham could do ok if he could maintain that for 365 days the entire year. I doubt it will be able to maintain those numbers though. A very publicized opening during the peak tourism season of summer could only get him 7,000 people to attend. Laughat

It will be amusing to watch him lie like a rug about attendance numbers, but you can't lie to your creditors, time will tell the true story.

They figured out the problem. Someone was putting these signs up on the roads leading to the ark...

The ark is almost completed and is scheduled to be open to visitors on July 7. You can learn the details at https://arkencounter.com/. The flood lasted just a little over one year, but during that year the rapid burial of living creatures produced most of the fossils we find today and the geography of the earth was changed.

Knowing whether the flood occurred is essential to accurately measuring the age of the earth. If there was no flood then it would have taken millions of years to form the vast number of fossils that we find and to shape the earth into its present condition. On the other hand, if there was a flood it is possible that the earth is only a few thousand years old, as the Bible says.

Knowing there was a flood not only shows that the earth is younger than most people believe but it also shows that God is concerned about the way we live and will judge us. The rainbow is a sign that God will never send a flood that will destroy all life on earth. The next judgment will be by fire.

The purpose of the ark replica is to provide proof that the story of the flood is true. Here is some more information about the ark and the flood on the Answers in Genesis website.

OK Theo, I can't be bothered to deconstruct all the foolishness in the post above so kindly answer the following itty-bitty objections to a Noahic Flood/YEC worldview:

- Where did all the water come from and go to?

- How do you reconcile the lack of genetic diversity imposed by the population bottleneck of 2 to 7 of each "kind" saved aboard the ark with the ridiculously high genetic diversity that would be necessary for the absurd rate of speciation that would be required to turn these few thousand "kinds" into millions of species over a few thousand years?

- How do you prevent complete ecosystem collapse in a post-flood world where no plants live and the nearest chow for a hungry predator is one of a very small population of herbivores?

- Why was drowning the entire world the best solution that an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving god could come up with for dealing with a few sinners? Had all the kittens and baby birds become "wicked" too?

- How do you explain the ancient appearance of the Earth and the Universe as a whole and what does this say about the nature of your Creator?

- Do you think that tradition is a sufficient reason to believe a retooled Babylonian flood myth over modern scientific evidence? Do you hold similar views on medicine, law, nuclear power or space exploration?

Please answer in your own words and try not to destroy the planet while you're about it.

Thanks, I am really glad it is not doing well. I hope it goes completely under. So far under it can never possibly recover.
All I can say about it is WOW, I am awestruck by the beauty of the electrical lighting they have in the -4000BC Boat that is a perfect replica of the original and can float on 12.0 hurricane force winds with a continuous waterfall falling on top of it and no air to breath. Just wow. I bet it has air conditioning just like the ark did as well, and a fire water system.


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

What else is the building good for other than an ark tourist attraction? As long as they are covering their variable costs I think it will stay open. The holders of the notes will take hair cuts but that is better than owning a building that has no other viable use other than being an ark tourist attraction.

Please update your "insults forgiven" in your signature.
I've insulted you at least 5 times in the last week.
We wouldn't want your martyr complex to get anything other than full credit.

Thank you.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

RE: Ark encounter
We need a very large zepplin, a conveniently foggy night and a crew who knows how to fly an ark.

Crazy billionaire money: I buy Ham out and then stuff it full of the numbers of kinds he thinks it is then turn it into an even more of an exhibit on how this was completely impossible as well as where the myth likely came from. Basically an atheist museum.
