The Noah’s Ark Encounter attraction in Kentucky is suing its insurers after they refused to cover damages caused by, of all things, rain!
This is the type of story you would expect to see over at self-proclaimed Christian satire site, The Babylon Bee, but guess what? It’s true and I think it’s hilarious. And to be perfectly honest, as NTEB reader Char recently pointed out, after mind-numbingly horrific articles on Kenneth Copeland displaying his demons, anti-semite Steven Anderson, Madonna appearing on Univision as Antichrist, and that Baylor University graduation speech by a Baptist pastor praying we be ‘delivered from straight white men’, we could certainly use a little leviety. I love this story, really made me laugh.
“And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.” Genesis 6:13-17 (KJV)
Jesus tells us in Matthew 24 that the end times will be like it was in the ‘days of Noah’, and so it is. As of this writing, born again believers are waiting to hear that ‘voice like a trumpet’ to pull us up and out in the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, shown to us in type with the taking of the gentile Enoch in Genesis 5:24 (KJV). That was the ‘set-up’ event for the Flood of Noah that starts Genesis 6, which shows us the time of Jacob’s trouble in type as well.
We are getting closer and closer, people, with each passing day. Keep looking up! Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines is now boarding…
The owners of the Ark Encounter attraction in Williamstown, Kentucky are demanding their insurance company reimburse them for rain-related repairs
FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Owners of the Ark Encounter say excessive rain in 2017 and 2018 caused nearly $1million of damage to the attraction, after a landslide on an access road. And their federal lawsuit is demanding that their insurance companies, including Allied World Assurance Co. Holdings of Switzerland, cover the cost.
The insurance carriers refused to cover any of the damage costs, arguing that ‘faulty design or workmanship’ on the road is not covered by the owners’ policy, according to the suit. Ark Encounter’s complaint says the insurer later agreed to pay a fraction of the cost that it said was covered by the policy.
Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky, is based around a 510-foot-long wooden ark – intended to be a replica of the biblical Noah’s Ark. In the famous Christian story, God sent a worldwide flood to destroy all living creatures except for the ones which were taken two-by-two onto a giant ark.
The $102 million replica ark took six years to build and is one of the largest timber-framed buildings in the world.
Opened in 2016, it features an animatronic Noah and lifelike models of animals including bears, giraffes and even dinosaurs.
It was constructed using 3.3 million feet of wooden boards, and funded by donations, junk bonds and tax rebates from the state. The ark was built by Answers in Genesis, a fundamentalist Christian organization headed by Creationist Ken Ham.
Ark Encounter attorney Amanda Brooke Stubblefield, told the Courier-Journal her client’s new lawsuit speaks for itself.
‘We don’t have anything to add at this time, other than to say that we are highly confident of the merits of our case as we seek a fair resolution to the matter,’ she said. Allied World Assurance hasn’t responded to the lawsuit in court filings.
Ark Encounter’s leaders weren’t happy with media coverage their lawsuit gained on Friday.
In a blog post, the company said: ‘There has NOT been a flood at our Ark Encounter themed attraction. Just some ongoing rain, two years ago, that caused a hillside to erode—but no flood! That’s all. Contrary to some reporting, the damage to certain areas of the Ark Encounter themed attraction was not caused by a ‘flood.’ Further, the damage began occurring approximately two years ago and thus this is not a new development. The damaged areas have already been remediated. The Ark itself does not sit next to the damaged areas. The Ark was built on bedrock and was never in jeopardy. We are highly confident of the merits of our case as we seek a fair resolution with the insurance companies.” READ MORE
