$101 million Noah’s Ark rises in Kentucky — Jesus-riding dinosaurs and all Newsweek
– Imagine the Titanic minus the smokestacks, framed out of timber rather than iron. Imagine that instead of a doomed ocean liner bustling with well-dressed elites, it’s home to 2,000 seasick animals, a handful of teenage dinosaurs and one patriarchal family headed by a 500-year-old man bent on saving the world.
Cultures all over the globe share the legend of Noah’s Ark, but this summer one especially enthusiastic Christian ministry will try to convince you that it looked exactly like this—dinosaurs and all—when it opens its biblical theme park. Its pièce de résistance is a 510-foot representation of Noah’s giant boat.
(OK, the Titanic was bigger, but you get the idea.) Tickets for the July 7 opening go on sale January 19, and the ministry folks are betting big—with borrowed money—that people will want to see the show. – NOAH’S ARK RISES IN KENTUCKY, DINOSAURS AND ALL BY LINDSAY TUCKER – 10 Epic Portraits of Jesus and Dinosaurs (10 Pics)
