Taxpayers still on hook for Ark Park

Postby the_ignored » Wed Nov 11, 2015 9:23 pm

Details. Despite Dan's and the Americans United heroic efforts to bring this problem to light, which evidently helped bring about the state's decision to not grant Ham 18 million dollars in tax money to build the ark, there are still problems.

Through a program called TIF, or Tax Incentive Financing, the Ark Encounter is receiving a $62 million bond from the City of Williamstown, Kentucky.

This grant was uncovered by the Friendly Atheist’s Tracy Moody who attended a Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce meeting where Ham along with his Answers in Genesis board presented the latest news and projections for the Ark Encounter.

Moody noted that Ham not only touted the false attendance numbers as part of what she called an “hour-long spiel that could best be described as an Ark Park pep rally,” but he also was encouraging people with the money to snatch up commercial land in the nearby quickly.


When you read the article and the links, you'll see the lie of Ham here:
So much for that whole claim by Ham that no taxpayer would unwillingly help fund his project.

This mess is a good example of how a creationist tells the "truth":

Now that we know the specifics, we can decode Ham’s careful wording when he says, “No unwilling taxpayer will subsidize the Ark.” He’s being truthful, as well as disturbingly deceptive. It’s true the Ark replica itself is being built entirely on donations. But taxpayers will absolutely pay a price through the subsidies for the land and the 75% property tax break he gets for the next 30 years.

Creationists are but a small percentage of the much bigger group knows as "Hucksters". They all do much the same thing based on their willful ignorance.

Fuck them all raw.

The funny thing is the biblical texts never mention dinosaurs. Oh sure, Creatards will try to shoehorn in Tiamat and a Behemoth but you will not find a brontosaurus.

Well yeah. It got squashed between the Tiamat and the Behemoth.

And who knew they were as big as elephants? :o

(I do hope the lifeboats will be seated according to class...No need to worry, Gawd himself could not sink this ship.)

À propos unicorns:

Unicorns in the Bible?
by Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell on February 6, 2015

To think of the biblical unicorn as a fantasy animal is to demean God’s Word, which is true in every detail.
