    Noah's Ark theme park founder blames devastating hurricanes on sins

    Hurricanes are a result of people’s sins, Ken Ham, the president and founder of the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, tweeted on Wednesday.

    “Devastating Hurricanes-reminder we live in a fallen groaning world as a result of our sin against a Holy God-it’s our fault not God’s fault,” he tweeted.

    In the tweet, he posted a picture with a verse from Romans 8:22: “For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.”

    I don't know the final answer, did any of our tax dollars go to this buffoon?

    Yes. He reversed the sale to the NFP after the state threatened to take the funds away.

    I made the same comment after Katrina hit New Orleans. I was there a few days before it hit. The debauchery there was unreal.

    I don't know if he got straight money, I think he just got tax credits and relief for building his project. Locals were going to raise taxes on them this year and he did out maneuver them.

    I remember someone saying something crazy like this during Katrina. I didn't realize it was you.

    I guess it depends on who you ask, this article from the PEW Research Center says Christians make up (31%) of Earth’s 7.3 billion people.
