THE ARK ENCOUNTERS
Welcome to Ark Encounter, the creationist amusement park.
*Ark Encounter*, the new tourist attraction of Williamstown in Kentucky is no more and no less than the true copy of Noah’s Ark « according to its builders, the creationist Christian fundamentalists of » Answers in Genesis « .
This huge 150m long building with a total area of 10,000 m built in « respect for biblical proportions » is a temple to creationism and its doctrine that God created earth and all living beings 6000 years ago in 6 days.
This project was very controversial. Ark Encounter cost more than $ 102 million, partly funded by donations and the state of Kentucky, which was unable to avoid a subsidy following a court ruling.
Taxpayers, whether they adhere to creative theories or not, have therefore had to contribute to the financing of the project.
