Atheist group plans ‘Genocide and Incest Park’ billboard campaign to troll creationist ‘Ark’

Published

on

An atheist group has organized a fundraising campaign in order to mock the $101 million “Ark Encounter” theme park due to open in Kentucky this July.

According to columnist and author Dan Arel, the Tri-State Freethinkers are seeking to raise $2,000 in order to erect billboards calling the facility “Genocide and Incest Park.”

“The park celebrates a biblical parable of genocide and incest,” the group says on its Indiegogo page. “While they have a legal right to celebrate their mythology, we find it immoral and highly inappropriate as family entertainment.”

The park, which was created by a group headed by creationist Ken Ham, will include a a 510-foot model of Noah’s Ark, as well as teaching exhibits based on the premise that the flood Noah and his family were escaping on the vessel separated the world’s continents.

“They are portraying the story of Noah’s Ark as an actual historical event. This is scientifically not possible,” the Freethinkers said on the campaign site.

One of the rewards in the campaign includes a chance for donors contributing $500 to have their picture displayed on the billboard — depicting them as they “drown” under the Ark.

“Give a face to the millions who lost their lives in the fabled flooding,” reads the note for donors. “You will also receive a poster of the billboard, the Rain Poncho of Protection and definitely a thank you note.”

According to the Freethinkers, the first $2,000 raised would go toward setting up one small billboard on a state route for one month. For $6,000, they will erect six small billboards or a larger one along an interstate. And if they should raise $150 million, they said, “we will build our very own Genocide & Incest Park and ask for state tax incentives and we will not [discriminate] during hire.”

Watch a short video explaining the campaign, as posted online, below.

Trump encourages China to take advantage of Jay Powell and Fed: They ‘don’t have a clue’

Published

on

President Donald Trump launched a new attack against his own Federal Reserve chairman in a pair of Monday morning tweets.

The president has been publicly pressuring Fed chairman Jerome Powell to lower interest rates in hopes of staving off a recession, but the Trump appointee has so far resisted his calls.

"Producer prices in China shrank most in 3 years due to China’s big devaluation of their currency, coupled with monetary stimulus," Trump tweeted. "Federal Reserve not watching? Will Fed ever get into the game? Dollar strongest EVER! Really bad for exports. No Inflation...Highest Interest Rates..."

Internet pummels Trump for frantic demand to investigate Obama instead: ‘This is not the tweet of an innocent man’

Published

President Donald Trump jealously raged against Barack Obama's post-presidency business deals, which includes a production agreement with Netflix -- and other social media users ridiculed his apparent envy.

Trump questioned that deal and others in a pair of tweets complaining about an impeachment inquiry launched against him last week by the House Judiciary Committee, and he suggested Congress look at Obama's business since he left the White House.

....work that way. I have a better idea. Look at the Obama Book Deal, or the ridiculous Netflix deal. Then look at all the deals made by the Dems in Congress, the “Congressional Slush Fund,” and lastly the IG Reports. Take a look at them. Those investigations would be over FAST!

Is the Trump administration squelching a whistleblower — and a major scandal?

Published

on

America's system of government has always worked on the honor system. With so few Senate-confirmed Cabinet and federal agency heads, and so many “acting” officials working in the Trump administration, people who are constantly forced to audition for permanent positions are now under tremendous pressure to protect a president hellbent on breaking every norm of good governance. Now a new possible political scandal could be brewing in the Trump administration that tests the loyalty of these “acting” officials — pitting their allegiance to the nation against their desire to impress their boss.
