Kentucky’s Democratic governor Steve Beshear announced yesterday that a creationism theme park — dubbed “Ark Encounter” — is expected to open in the state in 2014. The governor boasted that the park would have a $250 million impact on the local economy annually. The park “will feature a 500-foot-long wooden replica of Noah’s Ark containing live animals such as juvenile giraffes.”
But here's the really obnoxious part:
"I’m sure we’ll have representative kinds of animals on the ark, to include dinosaurs."
There are so many things wrong here I'm gonna cry if I start talking about them. Please enjoy transcripts and videos of the press conference at Barefoot and Progressive.
