Ken Ham Employs Rock Monsters to Build Ark Encounter

by on

Ken Ham finally admitted that just as rock monsters helped build the Ark in the Hollywood movie Noah, so rock monsters have been sought to build the life-size Ark in Kentucky. For a long time, Ken Ham would not answer the question about rock monsters and the Ark, but today, he broke his silence because he found out the rock monsters had been caught on camera and the footage was going to be released to the public. Ken Ham said the following:

After looking over the plans for the Ark, I had come to realize that we would have to have rock monsters to help build our life-size Ark project. We actually found some in Grant County—the same county the Ark project is located in. Not many people have seen these rock monsters at the Ark site, but after someone caught them on video, I thought it was time to admit to everyone that yes, we are using rock monsters to build the Ark.

Ken Ham went on to explain that these rock monsters are somewhat similar to those in the Hollywood movie:

The rock monsters we have located existed in a fluid form, but once on the Ark site they came together to exhibit their rock characteristics and have done a great job helping us get this Ark facility constructed. They have become an integral part of building this great wooden Ark. I’m sure Russell Crowe will want to visit and re-live his experience in the Noah movie and see these rock monsters for himself.

Ken Ham then showed a video of the rock monsters, which we have included for you in this post. WARNING: Although children will be intrigued, adults (particularly atheists) may find this video alarming as they realize what is happening.

Yes, today is April Fools’ Day. We wanted to have some fun at the expense of the egregious Noah movie released last year. This blasphemous film featured giant rock monsters (fallen angels trapped in rock) as the real heroes of the movie. They are the ones who built most of the Ark and ended up returning to heaven. At the same time, Noah is shown as a madman, and God is depicted as distant and vindictive. We published a detailed review of this awful film and several of our researchers participated in a webcast to discuss many of the errors in this film.

False ideas about Noah and the Ark abound in our culture. Skeptics mock the biblical account and spread numerous misconceptions, misleading undiscerning or unsuspecting people. Hundreds of children’s books and toys add to the confusion by using cute little arks and animals that make the biblical account seem like a fairy tale. Hollywood’s presentations of the Flood account have been abysmal. The 1999 Noah’s Ark miniseries put the account of Sodom and Gomorrah as taking place before the Flood and has Lot (who lived centuries later) lead some pirates in an attack on the Ark. Last year’s Noah movie was far worse. The recent Noah’s Ark movie on the UPtv network was a vast improvement from these other films, but it still had numerous inaccuracies that will end up misleading people about what actually happened.

These are some of the many reasons why the Ark Encounter, currently being built in Williamstown, Kentucky, is such an important project. This one-of-a-kind theme park is designed to counter the lies and misconceptions about the Ark and Flood that are so prevalent in our culture. This massive 510-foot-long structure will demonstrate that Noah’s Ark had plenty of room for all of the required animals—even using a worst-case-scenario approach that will likely overestimate the number of animals. Guests will learn some of the methods Noah may have used in constructing the Ark. Highly engaging and attractive exhibits are being developed to teach people the truth about our world’s history, recorded for us in the book of Genesis.

Ultimately, the global judgment of the Flood and the mercy God showed to Noah and his family will be used to remind visitors of the coming judgment and the truth that the Lord has once again graciously provided a way to be spared from the eternal consequences of our sin. According to God’s infallible Word, the Son of God died for our sins, was buried, and rose again on the third day (1 Corinthians 15:3–4). Noah and his family entered the Ark to be spared from the physical destruction of the Flood. The only way to be spared from eternal destruction is to be in Christ. He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6).

I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. (John 10:9)
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)

On this April Fools’ Day, we remind you that it would be exceedingly foolish to reject God’s gracious offer of salvation (Hebrews 2:3). Those who continue in their rebellion against the holy Creator will face judgment. Call on the Lord Jesus Christ and receive His forgiveness and the gift of eternal life (John 3:16; Romans 10:13).
