I live within a day drive of this place. I need to make a trip over there before they go out of business. From the looks of the place and the lack of many visitors, I'd say they won't last long.
The Ark Encounter, take a tour, If you dare.
I think the funniest aspect of this thing is that it required modern, state-of-the-art technology and materials to be built...
...and yet they insist that a goat-herder clan was somehow still able to pull it off some 5000 years ago.
Clan? This thing is huge Tons of Hewn lumber -tons of food and according to the bible, food was the last thing gathered = 1 week!! How?? done by Noah, 3 sons and four women.. Three levels, massive area to cover per day
If all the animals were babies perhaps and grew for the year they were in the ark, but never full grown.. elephants, etc. eat tons of food a day- babies much less
All those cages--fed, watered cleaned every day 24/7= where did they dump waste? Smells - must have been immune to odors
Fresh Water - from where? Did Noah and family eat any protein or just the grains and milk from goats? Eggs too perhaps So many questions.......
