A Stark Encounter

Posted by Brandon | Filed under Articles

Awhile ago I had written a brief article on Kentucky’s Creationist Museum; a “historical museum” where children can visualize young earth creationism and even ride a triceratops (saddle included) and discover the planet was created six thousand years ago.

Well Ken Ham is at it again with the Ark Encounter. This time it’s a park that includes “…full-scale, all-wood ark based on the dimensions provided in the Bible (Genesis 6), using the long cubit, and in accordance with sound established nautical engineering practices of the era.” Yes, sound nautical engineering sans the fact that in no way imaginable could a ship like this survive for over a year at sea. But we all know we aren’t dealing with facts here, so let us continue.

This $150 million park of ignorance will also include a walled city, the tower of babel and of course the aforementioned ark. Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear will assist this endeavor in the form of $37 million dollars in tax incentives.

“Bringing new jobs to Kentucky is my top priority, and with the estimated 900 jobs this project will create, I am happy about the economic impact this project will have on the Northern Kentucky region,” he said in a prepared statement. I don’t even want to get into the separation of church and state, though that’s a worthwhile discussion, but rather focus on the implications of the situation.

Let us sit back a moment and truly contemplate what we are actually building in this country. This is not Disneyland posturing itself as a world of fiction where you and the kids can get away from the world for a weekend but rather a historical perspective of the biblical interpretation of the world.

Directly from the ark encounter site says as much: “The Ark Encounter will be an immersive, historically themed experience for the whole family focused on having fun while learning about history. It is not an amusement park. It will feature a number of daily live performances, as well as live special events. It will also include “edu-tainment” aspects–educational and entertaining experiences within each attraction.”

So what are we building in this country? A nation of ignorance.
