Well, the NBC News that I watch nightly finished up its broadcast with a segment on the Ark Encounter (Kentucky’s “Ark Park”), with lots of shots of the Ark and an interview with Ken Ham. It was touted as the largest man-made timber-frame structure on Earth and was nothing less than an advertisement for this execrable creationist venture.
The worst part of the whole broadcast is that never did they bother to mention that it’s only a MYTH, a story that science tells us not only did not happen (there was no worldwide flood), but could not happen given the limited space of such a vessel and the number of animals it would have to accommodate, including their food.
It was a kiss on the naked rump of faith, as if NBC had advertised a Loch Ness Monster Park without mentioning that there’s no good evidence for Nessie.
Such is the reluctance of the American media to question faith. Shame on you, NBC News!
Here’s their tweet with some of the sell job:
And here’s an idea: if you use Twi**er, make your thoughts known using the addresses @NBCNightlyNews @NBCNews @kevtibs
That gets it to the right place, including Kevin Tibbles, tonight’s presenter
