There's simple question for those who support the idea of the Ark Experience and it is this.
"Why was it not built in the way the bible describes (i.e. no modern day mechanical aids like cranes and girders) and why was it not built and launched into water to show how well it floats and sails through the water? "
My suggested answer is that ark, being bigger than the largest wooden boat ever built (and that twisted and killed the crew as it sank!) they don't really believe it can be done. They also have no answer to how the huge trees needed to build it could have been cut down and carried to the site. Finally, these people are not so much about their beliefs (though I have no doubt they do have beliefs), or about evangelism but MONEY. Ham presumably makes plenty out of his museum and now the Ark thingy will make even more... 'and the love of money is the root of all evil' too!
