A $150 million amusement park based on Noah's Ark is going to be developed in Kentucky.

"View PostCella, on 08 December 2010 - 10:34 PM, said: Yes, because science explains everything...it's almost...all knowing..." If this were true, there would be no mysteries. Why be interested in unexplained mysteries? The fact is- science is completely limited by our limited base of knowledge as well as our limited technology. We only seem advanced because we are more advanced than ever before, but there was a time when the world's leading scientists believed that the earth was flat. By no means does science explain everything. Science is incredibly limited, actually. Science is limited to t... [More]

As for me I believe that taking kids to church is a form of child abuse you are pushing kids to do something they dont want to do its essentially molesting and raping minds.
