The Courier-Journal of Louisville editorialized that the project would amount to “creationist tourism” that would embarrass the state by featuring “a fundamentalist view resting on biblical inerrancy [that] indirectly promotes a religious dogma.”

Is it using tax dollars?

No theme park should ever get tax dollars.

Wife and I were talking about donating to the ark project last night.

If it's not true, what does the NYT have to worry about, right?

The proposed theme park is expected to attract 1.6 million visitors in its first year, bringing a $250 million annual economic impact within five years.

If the creationist museum isn't pulling in anywher near that then why should they believe the theme park will do better?

We’ve got a mosque going up courtesy of federal grants at Ground Zero, but the New York Times is afraid of a Noah’s Ark replica in Kentucky.

Makes perfect sense. /s

All games should be played with the existing rules applied to everyone equally. Don't like the rules? Then change them. In the mean time, you can not discriminate against Christians.

I think this is a great idea. i hope the funding is obtained regardless if it gets government help or not. As long as such a program exists I have no problem with a Christian group applying for it.

The editors asked, “Why stop with creationism? How about a Flat-Earth Museum? Or one devoted to the notion that the sun revolves around the Earth?”

If someone wants to start such a business, shouldn't they be able to? If it succeeds, good for them. If it fails, so be it. Why is this editor so afraid of someone starting a business?

Just as an aside - folks should see the security measures in place at the Creation Museum. Concrete barriers, multiple armed security guards. Those are visible. There are no doubt more. From what I can gather there have been numerous credible threats.

There's big money invested in evolution.

I didn’t see any outcry on the Titantic museum in Branson.

If somebody can get 1.6 million visitors a year for a Flat Earth museum, let em do it.

Just be fair and give the evolutionists a swamp somewhere to build a theme park to the big bang theory. It should bring in big bucks for the opening scene and then nothing thereafter but few of the attendees will ever again be heard complaining..........only silence.

Flood mythology is found in every ancient culture on the planet from American Indians to China. In every one of them, only a few humans survive and those humans try and save as many plants and animals as they can. Chances are good those myths are everywhere because there was a cataclysmic event in antediluvian history. Why the evolutionists are so bigoted in their beliefs is beyond me.

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.
