Continuing the geodesic sphere theme here's what a sphere of equal volume to Ham's box would look like:

Less than a third the length and a lot less construction material. Interestingly, it's just a shade smaller than the Epcot sphere at Disney World, which is 165 ft in diameter.

It's shot itself in the foot to the tune of $18 million. All in order to save potentially $700,000 in levies over the same period.

But then Creationists have always had problems with numbers over 6000.

.... I'm trying to remember whether Ham said that God told him to do this.

.... if so, is this a sign that Ham isn't getting guidance from God, or just that God is punking him?

Either way, there's something not kosher about it... Consider

So they could of had 18 million. I imagine that could had ran that little park of theirs for at least the next 10 years, and in that 10 years, probably found more retards to give them money to make it last even longer.

So this brings me joy and hope for a future of that park closing and being torn down.

They're all in it—the Ark included—to make lotsa moolah, despite any contradictory philanthropic claims. The notion that an imaginary, mythical "god" should allow the Ark to pay less levies and taxes than any other similar business is ludicrous in the 21st century.

Same goes for fucking churches. Ante-up, scumbags.

Still more truth in the land of Mickey Mouse than at the Ark Park.

I dunno. From what I understand, the Ark Park provides a revealing look at sociology, human nature, and epistemology, all of a much darker sort than Disney Traps will show you.

Good point, but you sort of have to mine the insights into psychology, sociology, and epistemology from the rhetorical ore. At Disney, what actual information there is tends to be explicitly spelled out. This is especially true of EPCOT, where learning about other cultures and/or current trends in technology is a central theme.

If they have to pay the 18 million, any chance this could close AIG down?

Bloody well hope so.
