On September 27, 2020, ticket sales and profits continue to plummet at the Ark Encounter, a biblical theme-park in Williamston, Kentucky due to the Corona virus. Not because the Ark Encounter is based upon pseudoscience that is easily disproved. The supposed replica of Noah’s Ark was built and is operated by “Answers in Genesis” a young earth creationist organization that was able to con the city of Williamston, county of Grant and state of Kentucky into giving them tax incentives to build their fake science fiasco. The state of Kentucky is currently rethinking these favorable tax incentives as the huge, HUGE crowds promised by Ken Ham haven’t ever materialized. When asked why God was allowing this pious theme-park to crash and burn fiscally, Ken Ham, the cut-rate Australian religious Svengali who tries to force his religious beliefs on everyone around him, is believed to have said, “God promised no more floods, he didn’t promise we wouldn’t have plagues. Besides, I’ve got my money and you won’t catch me the way you did Jerry Falwell, Jr. I dare you. Try and catch me.” Or something to that effect as relayed in a vision by Moroni the Angel, the same one that gave the golden tablets to Joseph Smith.
This is what happens when you try to use you religious and philosophical texts as history and science. One minute you’re reading one of Aesop’s morality tales, and the next you’re worrying about how to protect your grape trees from foxes. Honestly, you’d be much better off just Sharing Twisted-History instead.
