The headline has sparked jokes all over the country. Ark Encounter, the Noah’s ark replica and theme park in Kentucky, is suing Allied World Insurance Company in district court because they would not pay for over $1 million in damages from excessive rain.
The Wisconsin-based atheist group, Freedom From Religion Foundation, warned public schools not to take their students to the Creation Museum or the Ark Encounter Park because of their “overtly religious atmosphere.”
Ken Ham, the man behind the idea for the Creation Museum and who launched a new attraction last year called Ark Encounter, is being ridiculed for attempting to reclaim the rainbow symbol for Christianity.
The atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has sent letters to more than 1,000 school districts, warning them of the unconstitutionality of allowing students to visit Ken Ham’s newly-opened Ark Encounter.
Ken Ham, who recently saw his idea for a life-size replica of Noah’s Ark come to fruition, shared about giving atheist scientist Bill Nye “The Science Guy” a tour of the completed Ark Encounter project.
While only eight people in Noah’s family climbed aboard the biblical ark, when the rain began to fall, on Tuesday (July 5) as if on cue, more than 8,000 people got a first look inside the full-scale replica at the Ark Encounter.
