Even if it does attract visitors, I think the novelty of the park will eventually die down and the whole ark is going to be a $24,000,000 paperweight. I mean just look at the Creation Museum? That place is loosing revenue because their number of visitors are sinking as more and more people (especially among us young people) don't buy this shit anymore? And when that happens to this Ark Park, I think the whole thing will be an eyesore. I mean, who the hell wants a fucking big ass ugly boat just sitting there in the middle of nowhere?

I think he should build it and I'd even be willing to donate a small amount of money on one condition: he has to build it using only materials and techniques available to someone during Noah's supposed time period. No lifts, no power equipment, no steel beams, no modern equipment of any kind. No screws or bolts, no glues other than hide glue, no nail guns, power drills or cranes. Just muscle and animal power and wood to wood joinery. That would be interesting to watch. Oh, and he can only have 7 other people help him.

Hasn't worked since the 1at Century CE. And Ham wouldn't have access to it anyway, he's not a Christian.

I'd like to see a actual shipbuilder take a look at the structure. It might be a fun laugh.

Most of them dismiss it out of hand. There have been "scholarly" studies, most by undergrad divinity students.

I believe that the design has been reviewed by actual engineers (shipbuilding engineers?) who have said that the design would render the ark physically impossible to sustain itself in choppy waters for any length of time. It would break up faster than the Titanic.

Yeah, well, that's what they said about this one too.

But then, y'know, this one appeals to people's greed rather than their gullibility.

Too bad the smoke was so thick I couldn’t see it when I was there.

Excellent suggestion.

And don't forget that Ham should be 600 years old when he starts building it.
