    It blows me away not that some religious fanatic would fund construction of the thing, but that people PAY to see it. Rubes.

    And now for something completely different. I give to you the "North Carolina Taxidermy Hall of Fame, Creation and Antique Tool Museum".

    Yes, it's a real thing! It's in the basement of a Christian bookstore in the little town of Southern Pines, North Carolina.

    I'm not sure what worries me more - whether you're either giving advice without careful professional consideration, OR you have actually worked out how well that layup will withstand a velociraptor claw.

    I can imagine the phone call now. "Hey, Tyvek Technical Department - can you send me your dinosaur digital penetration data sheet. Hello.....hello....? :-)

    So, some of my tools are antiques and I create stuff with them. I used a panel raising plane when I built a yard gate.

    I've searched for a good, used, panel-raising plane for decades. Every one I find is unfit for anything more than a mantelpiece decoration. And, I'm told, interior designers have driven up the price of those for just that purpose. Someday I'll get around to making one myself.

    Mine needed some restoration, the boxing and width fence were missing.
    They are tricky to make unless you can find a skew mouthed badger plane to start from.

    What I want to know is how Noah got to Australia to load a pair of kangaroos, koalas, platapus, thylacine, Tassy Tiger, etc etc, then got them all back here and made sure they didn't populate the rest of the planet!

    On a serious note though, these flood story allegories have a basis in real historical flood events. Here is an interesting aspect to flood stories of Indigenous Australians.

    From a news item in the link below;
    https://www.theguardian.com/australi...-over-millenia

    quote:
    Distinctive ‘cross-checking’ tradition helps explain extraordinary accuracy in 21 stories about dramatic sea level rises between 7,000 and 18,000 years ago

    Indigenous stories of dramatic sea level rises across Australia date back more than 7,000 years in a continuous oral tradition without parallel anywhere in the world, according to new research.
    Sunshine Coast University marine geographer Patrick Nunn and University of New England linguist Nicholas Reid believe that 21 Indigenous stories from across the continent faithfully record events between 18,000 and 7000 years ago, when the sea rose 120m.
    Reid said a key feature of Indigenous storytelling culture – a distinctive “cross-generational cross-checking” process – might explain the remarkable consistency in accounts passed down by preliterate people which researchers previously believed could not persist for more than 800 years.
    “The idea that 300 generations could faithfully tell a story that didn’t degenerate into Chinese whispers, that was passing on factual information that we know happened from independent chronology, that just seems too good to be true, right?” Reid told Guardian Australia.
    “It’s an extraordinary thing. We don’t find this in other places around the world. The sea being 120 metres lower and then coming up over the continental shelf, that happened in Africa, America, Asia and everywhere else. But it’s only in Australia that we’re finding this large canon of stories that are all faithfully telling the same thing.”

    My own take is that some people way way back spotted shellfish remains high up on a hill somewhere, there are lots of instances of that, and hypothesised that there must have been a huge flood, continental movement and global temperature variation being unknown, and to explain the survival of life came up with the only explanation that their limited experience could imagine.
    The story grew and got folded into the mythology of the time, and was incorporated into religious belief.
    Of course, there are people who would not agree with me, but thats ok.

    Well, the Gilgamesh story is probably the folk memory of an unusually large river flood. Then there are the archaeological remains on the floor of the Black Sea, so there were people around to witness that cataclysmic flood. There could be a folk memory of that event surviving down the millennia.

    Ken Ham!

    Huh! Isn't that ironic? What ever happened to Noah's son Ham?

    Genesis 22: And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

    These people really ought to do better research. Theropod dinosaurs had feathers. They didn't look like scaly lizards. For goodness sakes, it's 2017. Keep up. It's not like this is secret, hidden information.

    Adding 20th century popular mythology on top of Bronze Age mythology improves neither. Also, that "boat" is badly short-planked. Any actual shipwright who signed off on that plank schedule would be ashamed. However, they used Amish barn builders instead, from what I read. Which turned out just about how you'd expect.

    My take is that if you poke someone with a sharp stick they'll get annoyed, if you smile and shake their hand they will be your friends.

    I'm also wondering how much money they wasted on this folly, that could have been spent on doing god's work of feeding the poor?
