"The park is being opened by the Answers in Genesis ministry, which is devoted to a literal interpretation of the Old Testament.
Yet they're are making a Theme Park of the Old Testament? Too Funny!

Building an Ark won't prove anything in the bible. It won't disprove it either.

Wouldn't religions do much better if they devoted that $155,000,000 to helping the poor and needy instead of building a theme park? After all, isn't that what Jesus commanded? I seriously doubt he'd rather have a "theme park".

Now all they need to do is put in two elephants, two tigers, two lions, two giraffes, two rhinos, two leopards, two pandas, two ...

in that tiny space. I will be a believer then...

Thankfully, most Mormons now recognize that many stories in the Bible are not literal. A world-wide flood and boat that contained two of every living animal is certainly one of those.

I am a very active LDS member and I most definitely believe the story of Noah's ark is literal.

Why wouldn't I?

Should I not just because 'Idaho Coug' says I shouldn't? Does 'Idaho Coug' and "most Mormons" not believe in miracles, or is that just for 5-yr olds?

RE: Idaho Coug
RE: Lane Myer

It is "two of every kind"

NOT two of every animal.

and the stories certainly are literal as far as they translated correctly.

Is anything too difficult for God?

RE: The truth, Some Biblical references to the flood: Psalm 29:1-11;104: 5-9. Isaiah 54:9. Most important Jesus confirms it in Mt 24:37-79 and Luke 17:26-27. Hebrews 11:7.

And 1 Peter 3:20-21 NLT. Those who disobeyed God long ago when God waited patiently while Noah was building his boat. Only eight people were saved from drowning in that terrible flood. And that water is a picture of baptism, which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as a response to God from a clean conscience. It is effective because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The eight people in the Ark did not get wet,they were saved by trusting in God,water is a symbol of belief.

Given that the ark was built and filled in what later became the Jackson County, Missouri area, it probably did not contain the larger mammals found in Africa. So that may have minimized any space issues on the ark.

Dan and the truth - if you believe the ark was literal then surely you also believe modern day clarifications (location in the U.S.).
