The Northern Kentucky Convention & Visitors Bureau is promoting Ark Encounter and fundamentalist Christianity in paid ads
The Ark Encounter is a monument to human ignorance. It should not be getting a cent of public money, either directly or indirectly.
“This is how good Ken Ham has it. He doesn’t even have to market his pathetic attractions. He has the taxpayer-funded local tourism group doing it for him, white-washing his Christian bigotry while promoting his specific religious perspective in ads. Best of all? Ham doesn’t have to pay a dime for the publicity.“
And yet, he has yet to make the attendance numbers he expected his first year.
“an exact replica of Noah’s Ark according to the book of Genesis. This beautiful piece of architecture is filled with state-of-the-art exhibitions“
Beautiful is subjective, and yet I can’t help but believe the Ark is objectively ugly in all kinds of ways, including the superficial exterior.
State of the art has a clear meaning and anything that is trying to make us believe the Ark story is true cannot be state of the art. From what I have seen of the ark’s exhibits, they are far from state of the art. They’ve been putting speakers in boxes since speakers were invented dear.
"Come See The Genocide Park" would be more accurate.
OT: At last we have a real, true, really truly accurate explanation for what makes people gay: drinking water. If a pastor says so, it absolutely MUST be true, right? https://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/2023/03/you-might-be-gay-if-you-drink-tap-water-says-desantis-nominee-who-calls-lgbtq-people-evil/
Wasn't this place closed down for awhile last year because of excessive rain?
A ten-year-old has 8 simple questions to ask Mr. Ham:
How did Koalas get onto the ark?
How did Koalas get back to Australia?
How did Sloths get onto the ark?
How did Sloths get back to South America?
If all humans except Noah's clan died in the flood, how did the Chinese return to Asia?
If all humans except Noah's clan died in the flood, how did Black Africans return to Africa?
If all humans except Noah's clan died in the flood, how did North American natives return to NA?
If all humans except Noah's clan died in the flood, why doesn't all human DNA lead back to Noah?
PS Pangaea is about 300 million years ago
I don't think "Come see Ham's Boondoggle" would work as advertising.
I miss being able to post images, because I can't seem to find the right meme with ye olde Google just now. Y'know, the one with everything around the Ark Park labeled "Noah's construction crane," "Noah's service elevator," etc.?
OT: Quoting the bible is not a good idea (or an excuse).
Churches need to be taxed and the funding needs to be earmarked for actual education and healthcare.
It's OT, but I thought of Guerillasurgeon when I saw this...
Graven image. A total violation of the 2nd Commandment.
Were YHVH real, it would've been kindling. Or Ham & Co. would've gotten lightning bolts in their rectums the moment construction began.
Ham is apparently worth $55 million. To be fair he's tooken 99.999% of it off the excessively religious, but another example of not living up to Jesus' teachings.
An exact replica of something that was impossible to ever have happened. How is this even possible? And why are they using public money to promote it?
That's quite a seaworthy vessel. And with the technology of the day, I'm quite sure it navigated the floods seamlessly from Jerusalem to Lexington, KY.
