HEBRON, Ky. — Noah's followers are building another ark. This one's sitting in a nondescript office park in northern Kentucky, destined for a new religious theme park.
The park is being opened by the Answers in Genesis ministry, which is devoted to a literal interpretation of the Old Testament.
The new ark is being built to the specifications of the Bible: 500 feet long and 80 feet high. And they're using the same materials and craftsmanship they think Noah would have used.
The ark will be the centerpiece of a proposed $155 million religious theme park, called the Ark Encounter, and will include other biblical icons like the Tower of Babel and an old world-style village.
