Photos: Man built a £77million replica of Noah’s ark to prove Bible was right



A man has built a £77million replica of Noah’s ark to prove that the story actually happened.

Back in 2010 Ken Ham, who believes everything in the Bible should be taken literally, announced that his organisation Answers in Genesis would construct the 510-foot-long ship in Kentucky.

Since then, scientists have been arguing that it would be detrimental to children’s education – taking particular umbrage with the fact that it was granted state tax incentives.

However, it was opened to great fanfare on Tuesday – with a high school marching band performing before a ribbon cutting.

‘I believe this is going to be one of the greatest Christian outreaches of this era in history,’ Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, said.

The attraction, called Ark Encounter, is based on the Old Testament tale about Noah, a man who got a warning from God that a flood would destroy the world.

Ham says the ark will now stand as proof that stories in the Bible are true. See More Photos Below:13501747_821955524603011_3500434465293585112_n 13524346_821955541269676_1891545406654191577_n 13592555_821955564603007_6023146563128145949_n 13606805_821955584603005_5647756979302910940_n
