And Then Noah's Ark Sank Kentucky | In Other #News: Can Ken Ham Float?

The investors in Ken Ham's Noah's Ark project ain't quite believing no' mo'.  As with most boats, it's just a giant hole in the ground into which the owner pours money.  If you don't believe me, ask a boat owner.  They get off on talking about how much money they waste on them.  Strange lot, that bunch.

Naturally, atheists caused the problem.  (RawStory:  Creationist Ken Ham blames atheists and ‘fake news’ for failing Ark Encounter theme park)

The Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority gave $18 million in tax breaks to fund a $92 million Noah's Ark theme park.

Despite Ham’s claims, local leaders are adamant that the taxpayer subsidies are not trickling down to the taxpayers.

“I think the Ark’s done well [laughter] and I’m glad for them on that,” Grant County Judge Executive Steve Wood told WKYT. “But it’s not done us good at all.”

Alternet linked to Daily Kos analysis of the publication Church & State noting Ark Encounter received, “$18 million in state tax incentives to offset the cost of the park’s construction; a 75 percent property tax break over 30 years from the City of Williamstown (a town of about 3,000 near where the park will be located); an $11-million road upgrade in a rural area that would almost exclusively facilitate traffic going to and from the park; a $200,000 gift from the Grant County Industrial Development Authority to make sure the project stays in that county; 100 acres of reduced-price land and, finally $62 million municipal bond issue from Williamstown that Ham claims has kept the project from sinking.”

Well, I tell you what, Kenny Bob, it looks like the state, atheists 'n all, have bent over hard to help keep that sinkhole open but your stupid ideas keep making it more absurd.  By the way, the story about Gladiators fighting T. rex ... genius, simple genius ... really fucking simple genius.

In the Annals of Wankerdom, Ken Ham will wear a golden wreath and a halo will hang over his head ... and it will rain on him ... constantly.  That greedy simpleton made America a laughingstock in front of the world so that needs to be celebrated.  Give us mediocrity!  We have earned our mediocrity and want every bit of it!  Once we put men on the Moon but now we make Arks which will sink to the bottom.  Mediocrity ... oh, God, how I love it so.
