OK, so maybe not, but it got your attention! Here’s the real scoop…
HEBRON, Ky. (AP) — Tucked away in a nondescript office park in northern Kentucky, Noah’s followers are rebuilding his ark.
The biblical wooden ship built to weather a worldwide flood was 500 feet long and about 80 feet high, according to Answers in Genesis, a Christian ministry devoted to a literal telling of the Old Testament.
This modern ark, to be nestled on a plot of 800 acres of rolling Kentucky farmland, isn’t designed to rescue the world’s creatures from a coming deluge. It’s to tell the world that the Bible’s legendary flood story was not a fable, but a part of human history (continued).
Hmm reminds me of a song…
We’re going out to Bibleland
by a Motel 6, and a burger stand
oasis there in the desert sand
We’ll play all day on the Family Plan
There’s a fifty foot cross and a pearly door
a lions den where the lions roar
a manger scene on a revolving floor
a leper and a christian book store
And something beautiful, something clean
behind the shabby bible scenes
Something real that built a dream
Midgets dressed up as Peter and Paul
a Christian rock band by the wailing wall
that Goliath guy makes us feel so small!
takes a half an hour just to see it all
A river of life and a pit of doom
Noah’s arcade and an upper room
Canoes cross the Jordan, there’s an empty tomb
and three shows daily starring Debby Boone
In the ruins and the waste
lurks the shadow of a perfect place
the mark of God on a strangers face
So what do you think? Is this a really cool idea from Ken Ham and the Answers in Genesis people, or another ridiculous, albeit well-intentioned, waste of time, sure to draw fire from the atheists and “hipster Christians”?
