Its my understanding from both AIG and Ark Encounter that the ark portion of the park is to be funded entirely by donation, not tax dollars. From the URL under FAQ under "How will it be funded?" is the following statement:
The bulk of the Ark Encounter will be built by the limited liability company (LLC). The Ark structure itself will be funded through donations.
"Individuals may make tax-deductible donations through the Ark Pegs, Planks, & Beams program, which gives everyone the opportunity to sponsor an actual peg, plank or beam that will be used to build the Ark. Sponsors will receive benefits that include a certificate of authenticity and special invitations to behind-the-scenes tours and grand opening events. Through the Ark website (ArkEncounter.com), all sponsors will have the opportunity to see the general location where their sponsored peg, plank, or beam is located in the Ark."
I've been watching the total donations rise - they've been given $20,000 pretty much just since the park was announced less than a week ago.
I thought we already did that. It's called "multiculturalism" (you know, science is white, "western," and male and must never replace the creation myths of the "indigenous pipples").
One minute us rednecks are being piled on by the rationalists. The next we're accused of importing alien western science and rationalism to "Turtle Island." And funny thing, the rationalists and the "indigenous pipples" never seem to encounter each other. Instead they just take turns beating up on us rednecks.
Just like the ol' time rasslin'--the "heels" never feud with each other.
Uhhh, the creationist project has already been done, several years ago. It has brought millions of dollars of tourism money to the state and been a smashing success on every conceivable level. The ark project has nothing to do with creationism, to the contrary, it could better be described in a context of destructionism. Finally, if it is half as successful as the creation museum was Kentucky will be much the better for it.
The partnership has applied for incentives under the Kentucky Tourism Development Act,
There's the problem.
So, a few atheist editorialists are embarrassed. Screw ‘em.
Well, then so other than they don't like the idea, what's their problem?
“How long can you tread water?”
They have the same problem liberals have - crush any dissent, silence any opposition, oppress anyone who disagrees.
You know you just shouldn't be allowed to build something that might cause people to doubt evolution and start becoming creationists who have the audacity to actually begin to believe in God???? /s
No I hate to tell you folks but this is not the embarassement to Kentucky it is you and your obivious over reaction that is the embarassment to Kentucky! Once again free thought and speech ends with the left!
Tell them Ark display includes a rainbow, that’ll shut them up.
The family stopped at the Creation Museum a couple of years ago. IMO, it was worth the stop but I don't think that I would go back. However, I will go to the Noah's Ark park if only to annoy people like the ones who wrote this article.
