Opponents protest Ark Encounter on its two-year anniversary

Dozens of protestors held a demonstration against the Ark Encounter theme park in Williamstown on Saturday.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Ky. -- Dozens of protesters gathered for a rally nearby as the Ark Encounter in Northern Kentucky celebrated its two-year anniversary Saturday. The rally was organized by the Tri-State Freethinkers. One of the leaders of that group said they are taking a stand for science literacy. "They're telling people the earth is 6,000 years old, that the Grand Canyon was formed in 40 days. This is nonsense,” said Jim Helton, co-founder of the group. “This goes against basic science. And they're lying to the children and to the people around here about science, and that is dangerous and immoral."[More]
