DavidOH, while I agree KY is one of the more conservative states, the Creation Museum was still met with huge opposition. They had to change the location more then once for stupid reasons.

I'm not going to try and debate anyone here on the buoyancy of an ark described in the Bible or whatnot. I would only like to point out that there has been some comments made in ref to "shouldn't the money be spent on more useful endeavors"?? This project, whether one agrees or not with it, will help that local economy in a tremendous way. Over 900 jobs will be created because of this project. Can't really say that's a bad thing and it certainly is helping people out, in an economic way I mean.

For those interested, here's an article from the NY Times on the theme park:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/06/us/06ark.html?_r=3&hp

“The people of Kentucky didn’t elect me governor to debate religion,” he said at a news conference. “They elected me governor to create jobs.”

“Anyone who wants to believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible has that right,” the editorial said. “However, the way the Beshear administration handled this makes it appear Kentucky either embraces such thinking or is desperate to take advantage of those who do.”
