Would You Pay to Tour Noah’s Ark?

Ken Ham, founder of Answers in Genesis, is betting that you will.  He’ll need you, and thousands of other interested patrons, to pay for the $150 million “Ark Encounter” he’s planning to open in 2014. NPR reports,

The park’s centerpiece will be a replica of Noah’s Ark, a wooden boat longer than a football field. Other attractions include a first-century Middle Eastern Village, a Tower of Babel and a Walled City.

This “biblical” theme park (for lack of a better phrase) will compliment Ham’s other “biblical” attraction – the Creation Museum, which attempts to provide evidence for what Ham claims the Bible clearly teaches: that the creation of the world occurred about 6,000 years ago in six literal, 24-hour days (see my series of posts on the creation issue entitled, “Free to Disagree“).

I wonder if they’ll have a “flood simulation” as well?
