“It’s our opportunity to present accurate, factual biblical information to people about a subject that they’re really interested in,” said Mike Zovath, a senior vice president of Answers in Genesis.


“We think that God would probably have sent healthy juvenile-sized animals that weren’t fully grown yet, so there would be plenty of room,” said Mr. Zovath, a retired Army lieutenant colonel heading the ark project. “We want to show how Noah would have taken care of them, taken care of waste management, taken care of water needs and food needs.”

Is the inside of that thing going to be a ride? :D

Looks like some kind of biblical disneyland.

ETA: didn't the bible say that Noah built the ark all by himself?

REAL arc encounter!!

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I wonder where Noah stored all the anthrax bacteria, smallpox viruses etc? Probably had a cryogenics lab in there or something...

Maybe he collected a load of flies to eat all the dung. That would have been eco-friendly.

If you think about it, the whole world was submerged in water, so the flies would have had nowhere else to go. Must have been real fun on the ark.

They did not put it in the Bible, but Leprechauns saved most of the people, animals, and even the diseases and parasites during the flood. Why? As their clothing shows, they were all Greens.

Latest: New Noah's Ark in Ky. aims to prove truth of Bible.
"The ark is really a different approach" than the [creation] museum, Zovath said. "It's really not about creation-evolution, it's about the authority of the Bible starting with the ark account in Genesis."

The Creation Museum evolves: Hoping to add a life-size ark project, the museum hits fundraising trouble
Answers in Genesis, a ministry founded in Australia, built the Creation Museum. The group seeks to convince others that the theory of evolution is wrong and that the account of creation told in Genesis is literally true. The result: a place that resembles a slick and entertaining natural history museum, even as it peddles the exact opposite message.

Now, the people behind this museum are looking to erect something much bigger: a 160-acre park with a life-size replica of Noah's Ark built to stand 500 feet long and 80 feet high. They're hoping to tap four teams of Amish builders to construct this giant ark, which would become the largest timber structure in the country...

But the ark plan now finds itself on troubled waters.

The group initially announced that it expected to break ground on the park in 2011, before eventually pushing that date back to 2014. But in June, in an interview in the Creation Museum's "Noah's Cafe," Ark Encounter vice president Michael Zovath told Yahoo News that the group no longer has a date in mind for the construction to begin. It has been unable to raise sufficient amounts of money, despite pleas to the Creation Museum's visitors to donate to the project.

Yeah, not as easy as it seems, is it? Four teams of Amish builders (how many on each team?) and it's taking much longer than anticipated even to get started, and yet one guy was supposed to build this thing by himself?

Silly question, but how many humans supposedly rode on the Ark? It was Noah, his wife and his kids, right?
So I guess there must have been a lot of incest after that. The same problem of course for Adam & Eve.

According to a lot of Christians, blacks were a result of a curse put by Noah on his son Ham. According to Mormons, Indians were the result of God's curse on the descendants of a figure called Laman. Not sure about Asians, but the trend is pretty clear in Christianity, if you aren't white its because God decided to punish you.

Lovely set of morals Christianity teaches...
