Ken Ham has had a great deal of difficulty raising enough money to break ground for his giant boat with dinosaurs on it in Grant County, but at least the $11 million in road construction from the state is still on track to pave the way to his vacant land.
But you never can be too sure that those pesky members of the Kentucky legislature are going to see the folly of that waste of money and pull the plug on that money.
And with the General Assembly kicking off today, Ken Ham thought it would be a good time to post a video of his Ark Encounter team chopping down a tree to show that they mean business.
From Ken Ham’s Facebook page, here’s the video, with his text below:
Another milestone reached with the Ark project. As we continue to raise funds for the actual construction, at the end of last year we had a campaign to raise $3M for various permits and for preparatory ground work. We praise the Lord that the $3M goal was reached. We have been obtaining various permits–and as a result, yesterday the first tree came down as part of the site preparation work. We still have a way to go before we can break ground for construction–and while this ground preparation work is underway, fund raising etc continues. Here is a video of the first tree coming down–even though this is just a small step in the overall project–it is another step forward nonetheless.
