WILLIAMSTOWN, Ky. (BP) — When evolutionist Bill Nye “the science guy” visited a life-size replica of Noah’s Ark in northern Kentucky, he wanted to learn how children were reacting to what he has called a danger to science education.
By the time he left the Ark Encounter theme park, he had also learned the story of Christ’s atoning death on the cross for humanity’s sins, Ark Encounter’s chief executive Ken Ham told Baptist Press, underscoring the park’s value as an evangelistic tool.
Nye “wanted to mock us” during his widely reported July 8 visit, said Ham, founder of Answers in Genesis (AiG), which operates Ark Encounter. “But I believe God is also drawing him. I believe God is burdening his heart. Otherwise, why would he be interested?”
