Here's one link I found. I have no idea if anything in the article is accurate.

According to the article linked in Rick's article, "the company will report its first-year sales to the Tourism Development Finance Authority in August." So I guess we'll know in August.

Here is what I found on this subject...

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nationa ... -1.2985037

http://www.rawstory.com/2017/02/county- ... ankruptcy/

Grant County somehow went into debt over the park in hopes in getting tax dollars back. That did not happen.

The Ark park is making money but not the county.

Never been there but seen youtube photos and videos of those who have and why in the world would there be dinosaurs on the ark if in the near future according to Ham, these beast would go extinct soon after being saved n the ark?

If the Ark Park is making money but the county isn't seeing it, well, can you spell A-U-D-I-T ?? That's the normal flow of events when the balance sheet is off.
If the truth hurts, maybe it should.

Same with a lot of the Paleolithic animals, I see more holes in that idea than in my tent sheet outside. But, he may have his opinion, after all it isn't heresy. I see the word drowning in the first link, coincidence? :lol:

This pretty well covers how the locals are feeling.

http://www.kentucky.com/news/state/arti ... 14269.html

Sounds like the county and state gave all kinds of huge tax breaks because the park was supposed to stimulate the local economy. That's been hit and miss and the folks who got missed are cheesed off about it.

I feel for the locals. Their elected representatives authorized tens of millions of dollars in tax breaks and other concessions and all they got out of it was the world's largest boat shaped building.

Regarding dinosaurs on the Ark, I've always assumed that Ken Ham is secretly trying to make Christianity look ridiculous.

Ya think Edward??
It seems when blokes like this are leading the field with thier ark parks then leadership may be an issue!!
What a monumental inevitable disaster.
I feel sorry for the constitutes of the county. But stupid is as stupid does.
What were they expecting?

I think there could have been small dinos on the ark-after all if every kind of land animal was at Eden it's plausible God put some dinosaurs there. That would help explain the supposed dragon sightings somewhat, and the lack of evidence for about 65 million years. The way he puts it, it's like dinosaurs HAD to be on the ark, and when I was a willfully ignorant YEC i would go on youtube and make myself look like a retard, partly bc of that, partly bc of my imagination.

Wouldn't dinos be extinct before the flood, according to a YEC/some OEC views? Rapid extinction within 4-20000 years, right when history was getting started, surely there would have been a notice, right? I mean, at the end of the Pleistocene there was an extinction of most megafauna but that wasn't on the scale of this...
I'm not trying to put down YEC views, or at least I shouldn't, but I would like some answers.

It's to help explain the sightings of dragons, some do seem to be like dinosaurs in even skin color (we found some preserved remains i think) and plus God doesn't always abide by our reasoning.

Fossilized dinosaur bones and vivid imaginations explain dragons just fine.

I think it's more appropriate to say that Ken Ham's Ark is sinking, and things like dinosaurs being on the ark, are the icebergs that are sinking it.
