Creation Museum to Add Zip Lines??

As if to reinforce Internet Monk's observation that the Creation Museum in Petersburg Kentucky represents the Disney-ization of Christianity, we now find out that, in order to boost attendance, they are going to add zip lines.  Mark Hansel, of writes:
Mike Zovath, senior vice president of Answers in Genesis which owns and operates the museum, said the zip line course is designed to broaden the attraction’s appeal.

“We think it will draw a lot of young people that are looking for something exciting and fun to do,” Zovath said. “The longest is a 1,700-foot, double zip line that extends from an adjacent property, through the woods and across a ravine.”

The first stage of the zip line course is located next to the entrance to the Creation Museum and features a 650-foot dual racing zip line that extends across a lake.
What's the biblical message here?
Genesis 7:23 Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.

24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days. 25 And because the Ark was long, being over 300 cubits in length, the Lord provided for Noah and his family zip lines for which to travel from one end of the Ark to the other.   26 This allowed them to manage the enormous tasks for which the Lord had commanded them.
Just incredible.  


  1. LOL! I hope they make this theme park "4D" by blowing in the odor of animal manure, urine, and vomit.

    '4D' with smells and all would be a great idea! After all they should try to make it as realistic as possible.

    On a more serious note, I've heard it 'argued' that the task wasn't really all that strenuous because most of the animals would have been in hibernation mode.

    Yeah, whatever.

  3. Most animals don't hibernate.
