    I've heard Pat Robertson make similar statements in the past. There are a lot of folks who believe that God punishes his creation because of sin. He did it in Noah's day and He still does it today, they say. I'm not buying it.

    If God is going to punish us for sins, he's not going to cherry pick. It's going to be all of us at one time = Judgment Day

    Maybe Ken can row his ark on down to Florida to help those sinners out.

    Ark Encounter, the Grant County amusement park that features a replica of Noah’s Ark, will get a $1.8 million tax rebate from Kentucky this year as part of its 10-year tourism tax incentive agreement with the state.

    Under the agreement, Kentucky must pay the theme park $1.8 million a year for 10 years as long as the attraction generates at least that much is sales taxes from tickets, food and rides each year. Ark Encounter, which opened in early July 2016, generated more than $2.28 million in sales taxes in its first year, according to the Kentucky Department of Revenue.

    The revenue department did not include in that total sales taxes from Ark Encounter for the end of June and all of July. That’s because Ark Encounter transferred its property to a related non-profit entity for $10 in the middle of a dispute with Williamstown city officials over a 50-cent-per-ticket safety tax the city imposed. After state officials suspended the tourism tax break because of the transfer, Ark officials transferred it back and then agreed to pay the safety tax.

    The tax break was initially approved in 2014 by Gov. Steve Beshear’s administration, but it was later canceled after state officials found out the park would hire only Christians. Bob Stewart, then secretary of the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, said the U.S. Constitution prohibited the state from assisting a religious endeavor.

    Ark Encounter officials sued the state in federal court, saying the state’s decision to withhold the tax break violated its free speech. In January 2016, U.S. District Judge Greg Van Tatenhove ruled the theme park was eligible to receive the tax incentive, which has neutral requirements that can be met by religious and secular groups alike. The Bevin administration declined to appeal the decision.

    I've noticed a lot of Facebook chatter and sharing about the multiple hurricanes signaling the end of times, using scripture prophecy as proof. What these people don't stop and think about is natural disasters have been occurring for as long as we've had recorded history and before. There's natural disasters all over the world on a weekly basis. Hurricanes are huge storms that have our attention right now but there's many others, including earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods and mudslides, blizzards, etc.

    it just so happens this year is big hurricane year for the Atlantic and Gulf. It's nothing unusual. Just a few years ago the US had so many hurricanes they ran through the entire alphabet and had to use the Greek alphabet. Galveston was destroyed over a hundred years ago by a hurricane. The world didn't end after that disaster, and the city was rebuilt.
    It has nothing to do with prophecy. It has everything to do with the natural and physical activities of our planet that have been with us a LONG time, not just 2017.

    Doesn't change my mind. Can't say anything else, it then becomes political. Hard to really discuss the real issue without getting into politics. So ii will leave it that he is preying on the gullible.

    Considering you have to make the choice to go there, he isnt preying on anyone.
