They Are Popping Up Everywhere

Hot on the heels of the Ark that has been built in Dordrecht, is the news that a Colorado group is intent on building a life-size ark. Amanda Miller of the Colorado Springs Business Journal writes:
Honor Hands, a Christian organization, is working on a project of biblical proportions.

Honor Hands Jerry Vinnola said that is finalizing a Southern Colorado land purchase build the Biblical ark according to measurements and directives in the Bible.

Plans include a taxidermy museum accessible to the blind so they could touch and feel the animals. There would also be an amphitheater and office space for other Christian outreach organizations, a science center and restaurant. Vinnola said he also plans to eventually build a water park on the site.

Vinnola said he would not reveal what city or even what county in southern Colorado could be the future home of the project until the land purchase is final because he’s afraid people would begin speculating about where it could be built and start buying up neighboring properties.

“We want to make a difference in the world with this project,” Vinnola said. “And we believe people will come from all over the world to see it.”

That means it will be a boon for nearby businesses and will likely create hundreds of jobs, Vinnola said.
According to the story, the ark will cost $70,000 dollars to build. Really? Then why is Ken Ham having a hard time raising the funds necessary to build his?
