Bah!

Panda's Thumb reports:
Ken Ham’s Ark “replica” is scheduled to open around July 7, or 7/7, in part because Genesis 7:7 says “and Noah went in and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark,” according to a recent article and a short video by Karla Ward in the Lexington News-Herald. Sorry, no animals inside, but there will be a petting zoo outside. The animals inside the ark will be “sculpted.”
I bet the ventilation system required to keep an indoor petting zoo's odor tolerable was waaaay too expensive for Ken Ham. God probably miracled all the pee and poo out of the real Ark.

Didn't you see Noah the motion picture? All the animals were in a state of magically induced coma during the voyage.


Actually, as a work of fantasy fiction, I don't think "Noah" was all that bad. I missed it in the theatre for a natural reason, but got it on TiVo the other month.

Didn't see it myself. Seems reasonable enough, seeing how the original story is made up to begin with. God could have also just as easily shrunk them down to an inch big (24 cm) so they could all fit. Why not? Can't prove it didn't happen, right?

The fantasy park is getting closer to opening day. If we don't have our delusions what would make life worth living? At least for those who need them. Fantasies like" My daddy can beat up your daddy" were so comforting when needed. Disneyland makes money from cartoon characters, what is wrong with doing the same with a Bible character? Come on all you atheists, start saving and planning and get ready to go there and support the park. Just like you did for the Creation Museum.

Every day is April Fool’s Day for fools:
I guess Ken Ham is feeling the sting of all those comments about the absurdity of his efforts to build a “life size” ark — he’s got cranes and steel reinforcements and concrete and a swarm of construction crews laboring to assemble his boondoggle, yet somehow, this giant imaginary boat was supposed to have been built by one guy and his sons 4000 years ago, out of wood. How to reconcile the contemporary tech of his construct with the basic woodworking skills of a Mesopotamian carpenter? Easy! Imagine they had super-scientific engineering technology that has been lost to us! You want proof? He’s not joking: archaeologists found non-stick frying pans in Roman sites, therefore, Noah might have had diesel trucks.

Ken Ham thinks that fooling people helps spread the word of god. Because being in awe of modern construction techniques and materials is exactly the "correct way" to think about Noah.

One of my online friends who should know better always falls for these hoaxes. He's a paleontologist who who's written several books and co-wrote with Daniel Loxton, Abominable Science which also serves as a good lesson in skepticism. And yet, he falls for all this stuff. Ed Brayton, Jim Lippard and several other skeptics including me have been on his case about his credulity with regard to these hoaxes. And he's a skeptic. Go figure.

Ken Ham’s Ark Park to “Debunk” the Happy Story of Noah:
...For the record: I agree with Ken Ham. The Christian God is a horrible monster.

Ham is not in any way trying to contradict this reading of the Bible, and in fact the Ark is going to have an entire exhibit debunking the “dangerous” image of Noah as a happy old man surrounded by cute animals and rainbows. Ham wants people to know that it is not a happy children’s story — it is a horror film in which God literally commits mass murder, and he believes that it’s dangerous for kids to grow up thinking otherwise...

New Ad for Ark Encounter Contradicts Ken Ham’s Understanding of Biblical “Kinds”

Apparently, "Kinds" don't matter in the ads for the Ark Encounter.

Not about the Ark Park, but I didn't want to start a new thread about Ken Ham's Tweets.
