Town expected flood of business after Noah’s Ark opened. So far, it’s a trickle.

Williamstown - Shem’s Snack Shack sits about a mile away from the Ark Encounter on a road that turns into Williamstown’s Main Street. In case you missed the reference to Shem, Noah’s son, it’s also the “Home of the Ark Dog” — two-thirds of a Biblical cubit long — and has swirly blue linoleum floors meant to mimic the ocean and a camel mascot named Humphrey, who declares that the gourmet hot dogs are flooded with flavor.

The snack shack is owned by Charleston, W.Va., doctor Brian Plants, a longtime donor to the Answers in Genesis ministry of Australian Ken Ham, whose vision has brought the Creation Museum in Petersburg and Ark Encounter, which opened last July. Plants thought it would be a good idea to capitalize on the hordes of hungry tourists who would be descending on Williamstown after touring what’s touted as the world’s largest timber-frame building in the shape of a boat.

Would love to see it, but we are slaves to our dog. Figures.

Too many unchurched families today for that kind of business on a large scale, unless they somehow diversify. Many parents of today also grew up in an unchurched home. Plus the public schools usually do their best to smother, minimize or destroy any positive activity that can remotely be called Christian Based. This is unfortunate, but in American, the trend has been going in this direction for quite a long time.

Yep, that is the unfortunate truth.

That’s why Obama was looked upon as “good” while he called good as “evil” and evil as “good”.

Who would have believed such a man could be elected only about 7 short years after 9/11/2001?

What four toppings would go well together on the same hot dog. Chili and cheese and onions. But that’s only three.

Add mustard to that and you’re good.

I wonder if the place can double as a venue for other things, like gospel/country music events. Tennessee doesn’t have to hog all that to itself.

I would have thought you would be limited to only two toppings.

Four toppings does not make a lot of sense, but one or three toppings would be a Big Problem.

It’s been my observation, that the farther south you go, there are more churches and therefore more church families.

I would not have. I am still shaking my head and damning the muslim and his worshipers to hell. The damage that they did to this Country will still be evident long after their stench has disappeared. And their stench will be around for a long, long time.

They’ve been building another Ark in Frostburg, MD, just off I68 for the longest time.

A lot of kids will grow up not feeling much of a link to famous literary writers of the past. Reason being, that Christianity was a fundamental part of most educated people’s lives in the western world until very recently.
Many of the great novels, plays fine art and operas have themes that were inspired by stories or parables from The Bible.

If you don’t know the very basic stories, you miss most of the connection if and until the connection is explained to you. Two short examples;
Without the stories of creation, we would not have known much about Michaelangelo.
There are many similarities between Moby Dick and Johah and The Whale.

Hell was busy trying to damn us, and it jolly came close.
