Ken Ham opened the "ark encounter" a life size replica of Noah's ark on July 7th. only cost tax payers $100,000,000 ($100 million). great news, there is almost no line to get in, so you might be able to talk to Ken Ham directly and congratulate him for representing your beliefs. http://www.wlwt.com...

from what i here, there is currently a whopping 40 pairs of animals on the ark.
each supposed to represent the "kinds" of animals.
i might see you there on Nov 11, because i'm not wasting my money to get in.

or if you are a non-believer you can get in for free.
Veterans are free on Veterans Day (November 11).
All guests are free on Christmas Eve (December 24) from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

I've never been a fan of "drive-through" religion. That seems to be this museum.

I wonder if they explain how they gathered up all the animals from all the continents, kept them alive for a year on a boat and then delivered them back to their original geographic locations. Did he use sails? That would be pretty tiring trying to row every single kind of animal across the whole planet with just him and his sons. I bet their hands had a lot of callouses. I wonder if they anticipated the weather conditions in Antarctica.

I also want to know what kind of distillery technology Noah used to convert the saltwater into fresh water for all the animals...with no electricity....every single day. We could use that kind of technology today.

I bet it was tricky saving the bees. I wonder what they ate.

That Noah was a genius!

Between tax-deductable donations, no income tax, property tax, investment tax, sales tax, direct subsidy through George W. Bush's Office of Faith-Based initiatives, related business income tax subsidies, volunteer labour subsidies, parsonage exemption and SECA exemptions, the US taxpayer subsidises religion to the tune of $71 billion per year, or so says a 2012 research report from the University of Tampa, [https://www.washingtonpost.com...] and printed in a publication of the Council of Secular Humanism [http://www.secularhumanism.org...] in the same year.

So if the Ark were taxpayer-funded for $100M as the OP says (and which I have no reason to doubt), that would still make it only a sixth of a percent of US' estimated annual government religious expenditure.

Which makes me wonder whether the freethinkers on the lawn outside the museum really had thought their protest through. With all the government budget spent supporting unevidenced beliefs for undemonstrable benefits, here is one I'd actually support as worthwhile: an allegedly life-size model of an ancient myth, not a church so much as a walk-in art installation about religious belief and cultural heritage; and a perfect vehicle for intelligent, skeptical inquiry.

I believe they shouldn't have been holding a protest, but throwing a party and inviting the busloads of tourists who attended the opening to come and join them. They should raise money to open a museum of entomology nearby, just so visitors who believe in the Ark can also see the 3,106 species of termites that'd need saving in it. :)

4,000 people sounds like a long line to me.
If that was the only issue, then vote moderation could be avoided more often, since a vote in which the voter does explain sufficiently how at least one point a debater made swung their vote, would be considered sufficient. -Airmax

Ken Ham needs more than $100 million, modern machinery, a huge team of labor, roads, lumber mills, AND tax breaks and never once thinks "You know" I don"t think a 500 year old man could pull this off with tools from the Bronze Age"" " Anthony Blair

Modern Machines used to make the ark:

Pictures of the modern technology used to make the ark:

Also, this 100 million dollar ark built with modern technology doesn't even float. Isn't that the whole idea of an ark? No wooden ship of that size has ever been able to float because wood is just not strong enough to hold a ship of that size together in a storm for a year in the water.

4,000 people sounds like a long line to me.

maybe if they were all in line at the same time.
over an 8 hour day that is about 8 people per min.
which is easy enough for 1 or 2 cashiers.
