Nothing like spending millions building a full-scale (and operational) replica of Noah's Ark, yeah?

That's how you know you have tooooooooo much money! Ha!

Johan Huibers of the Netherlands did exactly that, probably not realizing that there's no way that two of every animal on the planet could ever fit on that. We're sorry, it's just not happening.

It took him 20 years to realize his dream using Genesis, books 6-9, in The Bible as his guide. He converted cubits to modern measurements resulting in a boat that's 427 feet long, 95 feet wide and 75 feet high.

We're not sure if

Russell Crowe Is Starring In A Vegan-Infused Noah's Ark Movie!

Filed under: Film FlickersVivacious Vegs

According to screenwriter, Brian Godawa, film director and producer, Darren Aronofsky wrote a “vegan hippy-like” version of Noah's Ark, which stars Russell Crowe.

But because the religious tale is getting a Hollywood twist, Godawa is disappointed with all the fantasy that's going into the film.

He said:

“Noah explains that his family ‘studies the world,’ ‘healing it as best we can,’ like a kind of environmentalist scientist. But he also mysteriously has the fighting skills of an ancient Near Eastern Ninja.”

The screenwriter added that Noah was portrayed as an "environmental wacko," and although he doesn't have a problem with the animal rights or vegan spectrum of the film, he does NOT like the darkness that comes with it.

Line Up In Pairs! Noah's Ark Amusement Park A Go!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

You know, we're pretty sure the country is still in a recession. How is it these people voted unanimously to have this thing built when there are people really struggling in this economy? It makes no kind of sense.

On Thursday, the Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority was granted approval to spend $40 million in tax rebates to build a biblical theme park called "The Ark Encounter." That's $40 MILLION to build a 70,00 square-foot "museum," complete with Noah's Ark and Gift Shop.

For months, sane people have been pleading with the board not to back Mike Zovath's, a co-founder of the Answers in Genesis ministry, controversial attraction, arguing the legitimacy of a religious attraction being funded by a state government. However, it seems their arguments have fallen on deaf ears as the entire Kentucky Tourism department voted for giving the large sum of money to the project, which coincidentally, will actually cost $172 million.

Gee, maybe you want to sucker some money out of the school boards next. Kids don't need to learn, right? Might as well funnel as much money into this loon idea as possible, right? RIGHT?!

Ridiculous!

For those of you who are really interested, the "park" will include the ark, a replica of the Tower of Babel, lecture halls, shops, theaters and, of course, a petting zoo.

Joy. Bliss. Rapture. (Hey, wasn't that supposed to happen today???)
