Ranked 47th in education, I can’t say that it surprises me that Kentucky would be the place to open such a landmark object of stupidity. Now, let me point out of front this is not a question of religion (per se). I say, believe what you wish. If that works for you, go for it. That being said, a long time ago, it was said that the Bible was a series of stories to explain and teach simple people that did not have the working knowledge of science and the world. I don’t know when, but that has clearly changed over the years and now I hear that these are supposedly true historical facts. And if you believe that. There is little I can do to help you with that delusion.
The ark supposedly built by a 500 year old man (when life expectancy was in reality closer to 35 years), spent 100 years building this monstrosity of a boat, all by himself, and then gathering 16000 pairs of animals (Did the penguins waddle up to the ark, or did Noah have to go to Antarctica to get them? And after the waters subsided, how did they get back? Uber?). There were only 8 people on this boat (supposedly), Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives) How did only 8 people handle feeding 32,000 animals? (in particular, the ones that are carnivorous). How many had to be on 24 hour a day “poop patrol” to deal with all the excrement? What did Noah and his family eat for the year they were on the boat (yes, it rained for “40 days and 40 nights” but according to Genesis, they remained on the boat for 370 days)? I’m pretty sure they didn’t have an all-you-can-eat buffet on the lido deck.
But the lunacy of the “Answers in Genesis” crew doesn’t even stop there. No, these clowns have added dinosaurs to the ark, because the earth according to them is 5000 years old, that man and dinosaurs co-existed. So in this “museum” display they show dinosaurs in cages on the ark.
Creationist Ken Ham of Ark Encounters, the man behind the project says the ark was built as an educational tool. So now, Kentucky has this “tool” to ensure, not only is the current population willfully ignorant, they will endeavor to keep future generations equally ignorant.
