Is Noah's Ark Sinking?

I missed this story when it came out in late December. It seems that the funding for the “Ark-n-Park” has run aground. Simon Brown of Americans United writes:
According to multiple reports in LEO Weekly (Louisville), AiG said in January that ground would be broken on the project in the spring of 2011. Then in May, AiG said groundbreaking would be over the summer. In June, AiG said construction would begin in August. By early August AiG still had not broken ground but promised that it would happen “in the next few months.” Then in late August, AiG bumped the timetable way back, saying groundbreaking would begin in the spring of 2012. In the meantime, AiG continues to take donations even though it is well short of the total it needs to build the “Ark Park.” According to another article in LEO Weekly, the project has received just $4.3 million of the $24.5 million sought. Donations have totaled a mere $1.3 million in the last seven months.
I can muster little if any support for this project as I think it promotes a bankrupt scriptural model. There just is not any evidence whatever that there was a world-wide flood and to tell people otherwise when there is little in the Bible to warrant only that explanation is misguided at best. I am guessing that, given the power behind this troubled venture, it will eventually get built. Oh can only hope not.
