Re: Not going to happen, and it won't work if they actually do try
I would think that they could pluck all the required beams out of their own eyes.

$5000 beam! What a bargain!
For $5000 you can sponsor a beam. You get a certificate and everything,

I think you missed the part about the donation being tax deductible. So if you are in the 25% tax bracket, the beam actually only costs $3750! But wait! There's more!!! You get an Ark Model Replica - a $75 value. But that's not all! Ken Ham will personally autograph your Ark Model Replica. I am thinking of buying 4 or 5 beams and giving the Ark Model Replica to my friends as Christmas presents!!

But unfortunately ...

It has been unable to raise sufficient amounts of money, despite pleas to the Creation Museums visitors to donate to the project.

Maybe they should put a roller coaster in that thing! And have aliens and all kinds of freak animals (like unicorns, bigfoots, Nessy, etc...) in the cages. That might generate some interest!

The sad thing is they have raised $22.6 million so far, but still need $20 million more before they can even break ground. The question is ... what happens to all the money that these suckers err... people donated already? Do they give it back. Or just make a half scale replica? What a disgrace!

I guess I don't want to offend people but if I'm completely honest it's just so bizarre to see grown people take this seriously. It's no different than having a Jack and the Beanstalk theme park for people who take the story seriously.

I posted this on the other Ark thread, but on reflection it belongs here.


We'll find out tomorrow if the whole project is going to collapse.

Story here.

A Northern Kentucky theme park to be built around a full-scale replica of Noahs Ark may sink unless investors purchase about $29 million in unrated municipal bonds by Feb. 6.

In December, the city of Williamstown issued taxable debt for affiliates of the Christian nonprofit Answers in Genesis, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

Even though $26.5 million of securities have been sold, the project needs to sell at least $55 million in total to avoid triggering a redemption of all the bonds ...

This could be a bad week for Ken Ham.
