Ham-n-eggs.
Only needs to support one Ham; today's CCoI goldmine makes Solomon's mines look like a trash pit.

Fantasy and Make Believe are fun
Fantasy and Make Believe are fun, particularly for little kids, and I imagine these folk have enough imagination to make up lots of stuff.

I don't see much difference between this and the Magic Kingdom, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Discovery Expeditions, Universal Studios or even Knotts Berry Farm.

Re: Fantasy and Make Believe are fun
But there is no difference between the story of the Biblical Flood and Harry Potter. True, the folk promoting this site will claim that there is a difference but other than the fact that the folk running The Wizarding World of Harry Potter are being honest I see little difference.

Little?

The last year I have figures for was 2008 but in 2008 AIG showed over $5,000,000.00 revenue from the silly Creation Museum admissions alone.

I bet Walt Disney never even dreamed it would be possible to get folk to donate the money to build an amusement park and then have them pay an additional five million bucks a year to attend while he still claimed 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.

I will be curious to see how far they go in the message. Will they be content to say "This is what we believe" or will they preach against the scientific consensus?

You can take a virtual tour of the bad joke called a "creation museum" here.

Judge for yourself.

The humor continues.
quote:
"Yes, we are constructing a 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. It should become the largest timber-frame structure in the USA."

Am I the only one that absolutely spit coffee (a really nice Brazilian at that) all over my keyboard when I read the bolded part?

Re: The humor continues.
What are the sound established nautical engineering practices of 3000-2000 BCE and exactly where were they found?

Or did you mean the coffee?

Now it was a Brazilian Sweet Blue from the Datera Estate. Hated to waste that.

Edited by jar, : clarify question

Re: Flotation of the Ark
MiguelG writes:

I fail to see why the Ark is considered a priori to be un-seaworthy?

The dimensions of the Ark are approximately 137 meters by 23 meters.

There are several ships from ancient and medeival history which rival it including:

1.) The Ptolemaic Tessakonteres, an enormous 'super-galley' / catamaran constructed in about 200 BCE. It measured 128 x 18 meters .

2.) The Bao Chuan

The bǎochuán were from what dates, IF, and I stress IF, they actually existed and were the size described?

The tessarakonteres also may well be apocryphal.

Re: Flotation of the Ark
However there is no indication that Noah was "experienced people from fairly sophisticated nautical cultures (be they riverine or marine) building such vessels would not be a question of lack of technique or skill. "

And again, there is really no evidence those vessels existed or were sea worthy, particularly through what is described in the Biblical Flood myths.

It's the peer-reviewed creationist journal.

Sorry but peer reviewed and creationist journal don't make it.

Re: Not going to happen, and it won't work if they actually do try
Which fully explains Creationism and the Intelligent Design movement. The Christian Cult of Ig-norance is a Gold Mine.

The new amusement park will make lots of money
While the new amusement park may not be as culturally significant as Lego Land or offer as much valuable information as Knott's Berry Farm, it should be every bit as great a profit center as the earlier Creation Museum amusement park.
