Man builds life size Noah's Ark in America.




The Ark Encounter, the life-sized Noah's Ark theme-park attraction, held its official ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday in Grant County, Kentucky, ahead of its grand opening on Thursday, July 7th, gathering a crowd of 7,000 to witness the historic event.
Ken Ham, president and CEO of Answers in Genesis and The Creation Museum, told The Christian Post:
"In a world that is becoming increasingly secularized and biased, it's time for Christians to do something of this size and this magnitude."
He told CP that the Ark stands as a reminder.
"To remind the coming generations of the truth of God's word. It's our way of presenting the truth of God's Word to the world," Ham said.
The hour-long event, which was live-streamed and hosted on the Ark Encounter YouTube channel, featured live musical performances, prayers, and Bible readings, along with Williamstown mayor Richard Skinner cutting the ribbon at the end.
"In a professional way we figured out what the city could do, what the county could do, and what the Ark could do. And from that professionalism became a mutual respect that I have for the Ark Encounter and for what they stand," Skinner said about the joint efforts that went into building the theme park.
