Britain To Get Creationist Theme Park

The latest salvo in creationism's increasingly ferocious battle with evolution is about to be fired in Lancashire [England]. Not in a fiery sermon preached from the pulpit, but in the form of a giant Christian theme park that will champion the book of Genesis and make a multi-media case that God created the world in seven days.

The AH Trust, a charity set up last year by a group of businessmen alarmed by the direction in which they see society heading, has identified a number of potential sites in the north west of England to build the £3.5m Christian theme park.

[1] This is excellent news. It will be the biggest failure creationists have had since they invented "super evolution" as a bizarre rationalisation to explain how Noah got so many animals on the ark and since Ray Comfort thought the modern banana was designed by god.

The only people we can expect to go to a "creationist theme park" in the UK are atheists who have nothing to do on a Sunday afternoon and are in the mood for a bit of a giggle.

I look forward to laughing at their humiliating failure, And i look even more forward to potholer54 ripping them a new arsehole after his inevitable visit.


  1. I live in Orlando, Florida, and we currently have a "theme park" similar to this. Ours is called "Holy Land" and it's more a replica of ancient Jerusalem complete with daily reenactments of the crucification of Jesus and varying other scenes from biblical "history". The place has been around for several years now, so it apparently wasn't as big of a flop as I assumed it would be.

  2. I wonder if Morecambe will put in a bid for the park. The town needs something new, having been hit hard by the failure of the ill-fated Mr Blobby Theme Park.
