It's not an experiment
I think a lot of people would be interested in the experiment of actually recreating the biblical ark with specific list of animals (huge debate) that would live a year or so on a closed ark.

This is not that experiment.

This project is an amusement park. The intent is for people to come, have fun in a setting that comforts them, and avoid conflict, etc. Just like at Disney World - everything is clean, safe, and no one is angry or gets hurt. This place will be as separated from the real world as possible. 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?

I haven't been to the Creation Museum. Does anyone know if they just present their views? Do they ignore the scientific consensus, rebut a strawman version, or crusade against evil scientists (complete with sneering caricatures)?

Personally I expect that the place will make a profit, that they will try to weasel out of as much of the taxes as they can, and that they will get state money and incentives.

Kentucky is a conservative state so anything that brings in money and supports the views of a vocal voting group will get state support.

On a different tack -
To me, this project seems to be part of the trend of many believers to separate themselves into a society parallel to the general population. What happened to being in the world but not of the world to be an example of a believer?
