There’s a recreation of Noah’s Ark built in Kentucky by a young earth creationist group. While you might think you understand what a replica ark would include, some of the things in there might surprise you.
‘The Good Liars,’ a comedy duo that often troll and prank right wingers went to visit the ark.
And what they found was shocking.
In the above video, Davram Stiefler goes to the Ark Encounter to experience what creationists claim it was like on Noah’s Ark. While there, he speaks with an animatronic of Noah and asks for an explanation of dinosaurs.
The program has a pre-built answer and claims that not only were dinosaurs on the ark, but they were also dragons.
As the animatronic says:
“Dinosaurs are land animals. Of course they came onto The Ark!”
He then calls for his son to open a grain store to feed the dinosaurs.
It was a little confusing for some people.
Young earth creationists believe the earth to only be about 6000 years old, with the flood happening 4300 years ago. This would mean that humans and dinosaurs would have co-existed.
By contrast, scientific evidence puts the age of the Earth at 4.5 billion years, with dinosaurs existing millions of years before humans.
The Ark Encounter is a project by the organization Answers in Genesis, started by Ken Ham, a Christian fundamentalist. In addition to thinking the earth is only a few thousand years old, he also has some bigoted ideas about marriage.
Commenters online couldn’t take his claims seriously.
The Good Liars had a few more videos about The Ark Encounter, including one that claimed Noah was over 600 years old when the ark was built and even visited a scene blatantly showing humans living with dinosaurs.
