Probably didn’t help much that an employee was struck by lightning at the new zip line in August.

Skip Intro,

I’m glad their attendance is down. Less money for them to spread their pseudoscience nonsense, or to try to put creationism in our schools.

Fake science just isn’t that interesting, when you get right down to it. A bunch of painted dioramas don’t inspire the imagination if the story they’re telling is stupid, boring, and self-serving nonsense.

Good to see this disaster sinking like a real-life Noah’s Ark would.

re: #7 SidewaysQuark

Not to mention how they could never fit one of every single animal on the Ark, even ignoring the issue of all the food they would have to bring. Also we know nowadays that two individuals is a horrible breeding population, which goes a long way to debunk the Adam and Eve myth as well.

So it’s a matter of Evolve Or Perish.

Oh, the sweet, sweet irony.

Creation Museum Goes Extinct

Future headline?

In a developing story from Kentucky, the Creation Museum is running out of money due to declining attendance, bringing their “Ark Encounter” project to a stand-still because of a lack of funding.

Wait, I don’t understand. Shouldn’t they be able to build and maintain the entire project with only 8 people using nothing but bronze-age tools? How much can that cost?

12 jaunte  Mon, Oct 28, 2013 11:38:12am

I might have to travel up there for a souvenir if they have a going out of business sale.

They should solicit donations from creation science’s flagship organization, the Discovery Institute. Where would the Institute get the money?, you ask. Why, from licensing their superior biotech, of course. (Since they’re unencumbered by darwinism, think of the advantage they have over their competition. It’s like Newton versus Ptolmey!/)

The only difficulty is that the Discovery Institute hasn’t made any discoveries.

That’s not completely true. They have discovered how to separate the truly gullible from their money.

True, but they did that a long time ago.

I periodically remind people that the product of science is technology, and point out the utter lack of usable creation-based technologies.

It’s like the empirical connection between ideas that are correct, and technology that works, is fucking invisible to these folks. GPS and satellite TV, nuclear power, transistors, antibiotics and all that other stuff just came into being, and have no connection to the increasingly-useless picture organized religion wants us to have of the world.

20 CarolJ  Mon, Oct 28, 2013 12:48:30pm

In one sense it was inevitable. Creation stories are narrow in scope, and when one adds the denominational aspect, even narrower.
Young earth or old earth? How literal do we take Genesis? And it has to be Christian-no mention of other creation stories could be allowed there, even as contrast or variety. So the audience is limited to Americans and Christians. What reason would a traveling Muslim, for instance, go? Or a Jew?

And it’s in Kentucky, not exactly a traveler’s mecca. I mean if this was California, it could attract some people who stop by as a curiosity.

Actually, there is a creation museum in Santee, just west of San Diego. I pass it whenever I go to the drive-in out there. Its a bit outside the usual tourist destinations though, not something your would just stumble upon.

Actually, Kentucky has quite a lot to offer as a traveler’s Mecca.
Off the top of my head, there’s Mammoth Cave, Natural Bridge State Park, a wonderful arts community in Berea, a vibrant drystone wall industry, horse racing, and much more.

Then again, I live here, so I may be a bit biased.

23 CarolJ  Mon, Oct 28, 2013 1:14:45pm

re: #22 Backwoods_Sleuth

I know about Mammoth Cave and some of the other stuff. Wonderful. I was thinking more like Los Angeles or Miami, where there was enough of a just-traveling through crowd who would see it as a curiosity and just drop in. Jesus riding on a dinosaur would be just strange and wacky enough for picture taking. A place like that needs those kind of tourists. It’s not going to attract folks looking for something more natural or exciting and dazzlingly beautiful.

24 ausador  Mon, Oct 28, 2013 1:52:14pm

But, but, now they have dragons…

creationmuseum.org

How can that possibly fail to draw in flocks of new tourists? They will be rolling in the dough now and Noah’s Ark II will finished on time. Trust in the Lord and he will provide…right?

First Kentucky got its Obamacare Exchange right, and now good news about the Creation Museum losing attendance and the Ark Park stalled. The Bluegrass State is on a roll!

The creation museum got $43 million in tax breaks. If it goes bankrupt, those tax breaks (aka credits, reductions in property taxes, etc.,) are lost and the state lost money on the deal. That doesn’t count the money the state paid to improve a highway interchange near the “museum” for traffic that never materialized. That’s a whole lot of state-supported coin dropped on religious beliefs that believe that creation is the real deal, and that evolution is bunk.

In other words, expect crickets from the same folks who claimed tax breaks, subsidies, and credits to battery and solar and alt-energy companies (Solyndra!) was a bad deal for the taxpayers.

To be fair, the $43 million was a potential tax break on income at the park. Since they never made a dime, they get no tax break.
