Quick few questions about Ken Ham and his b.s.
Does he have many followers? Do a lot of americans actually believe all the bullshit that comes from that man's imagination? Can anyone give me an idea the percentage of Christians in the U.S as that follow him? There area many, MANY catholics here in Mexico but most of them know that the bible is not to be taken literal in any way!!!

What is wrong with you people? I'm worried! I. Really am, no B.S. I love your country.

It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.

Google him.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

RE: Quick few questions about Ken Ham and his b.s.
Judging by that christian web site that scored 92% for a Bill Nye win in that debate, I'd say that he's in the minority (even allowing for the likelihood that many votes might have been from non-believers).

Ark Encounter

In 2010, Answers in Genesis started a new project about 40 miles from the Creation Museum called the "Ark Encounter" for which the plan is to build a life sized ark. The attraction, a for-profit venture part-owned by AIG subsidiary Crosswater Canyon Inc., who will supposedly be providing the day-to-day management of the park as well as maintaining at least a 20% stake in the business. Other, unnamed private investors are said to be providing the other 80% of the funding required. Another $150 million dollars well spent! Plans dictate that the ark will be built precisely to the specifications described in the Bible, down to the cubit. The result of this is that Creationist families will marvel in awe at the size of the boat, before a sudden, startling realization that it couldn't fit two of every animal.

The Ark Encounter stirred controversy when it applied for and was granted tax breaks to the tune of $43 millions from the Kentucky state government. The state government asserted they had no right to deny the Ark Encounter tax incentives they would offer to any other for-profit tourist venture of comparable size in the state, while secular organisations such as Americans United for the Separation of Church and State see it as a clear violation of the First Amendment to the US constitution. Due to delays in beginning construction and difficulties securing funding, the Ark Encounter will miss deadlines tied to tax incentives they applied for and will be forced to refile to secure them again. The plans for the Ark Encounter have been scaled down considerably since their initial application.

Set to open in 2014, the Ark Encounter was to feature a petting zoo, a replica Tower of Babel, and the "historical" biblical journey from Abraham to the parting of the Red Sea. Due to difficulties securing funding, this has since been scaled back to a "first phase" consisting of just the Ark itself and a smaller petting zoo. Even this smaller petting zoo risks serious animal health and animal welfare problems which the organizers apparently did not consider. Other attractions are said to be scheduled for "future phases." With its super accurate account of history, the project is aimed mainly at being an educational experience for its soon-to-be-enlightened visitors (of which they expect 1.6 million a year). Unfortunately, fundraising has stalled at half the $24 millions to start the first phase of the project, construction of the ark itself. As of 2013, ground has yet to be broken on the project.

In Q3 2013 AiG finally gave up on trying to raise the necessary funds to build the Ark Encounter from their flock. The new plan is to do a bond issue in conjunction with the city of Williamstown to raise funds for the project. Interestingly, the official bond issue site describes Ark Encounter LLC. as wholly owned by Crosswater Canyon Inc., the AiG subsidiary. This suggests AiG's partners in the enterprise have now bailed out, forcing the project to be entirely debt financed. According to the project summary, the "first phase" of the project is projected to cost $73 millions, of which AiG is providing the $13mm already raised from their credulous supporters in donations, the whole of the remaining $60mm is to come from the bonds. They project the "future phases", i.e. everything other than the ark, to cost $52.6 millions which is to be paid for from the profits of the park over the first decade of its operation. Considering the project is to be 80% debt financed, that would seem ridiculously optimistic. AiG continue to use the original estimates of annual visitor numbers from when the project was announced, pegged at 1.6 millions or up to 2 millions if some elect for a two day visit. Jie Yang, a professor of finance at Georgetown University notes, "Should the project be unsuccessful, AiG holds no responsibility in meeting the interest payments of these bonds and the bonds may default..".

I did, and that is why I ask, because to me it is hard to believe that so many people are so goddamn lunatics!! I'm trying to find out if things are really as bad as they look on the internet, or perhaps it only looks that way and there are only a small number of creacionists.

Unfortunately, it's real and it's pretty bad. Sad

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.
