Tucked away in a nondescript office park in northern Kentucky, Noah's followers are rebuilding his ark.
Originators of a proposed biblical theme park that would include a full-size replica of Noah's Ark had considered sites in Indiana, Missouri and Ohio but ultimately chose to build in Kentucky because of the state's generous package of tax incentives, one of the developers said.
"The ark is really a different approach" than the museum, Mr. Zovath said. "It's really not about creation-evolution; it's about the authority of the Bible starting with the ark account in Genesis."
"When you get to walk through the boat and see how big this thing really was, and how many cages were there, and how much room there was for food and water ... our hope is people start seeing that this is plausible, that the account could be believed," Mr. Zovath said.
