How much would it cost to build Noah’s Ark Today?  $73 million dollars.  That’s according to the Creation  Museum’s Ken Ham, who has raised enough money to begin construction on the Ark Encounter project, expected to be finished by summer 2016.

A boost of donations came in after Ken Ham’s high profile debate with evolutionist Bill Nye the “Science Guy,” who couldn’t explain where the big bang originated.

The Ark Encounter will stick to the building instructions found in the Bible and use what Noah most likely had available to him: wooden pegs instead of nails, straight-sawed timbers, and plenty of animals.

Two million people have come to the Creation Museum since it opened in 2007.  The Ark Encounter, no doubt, will bring many more.
