http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/12/01/kentucky-creationist-theme-park_n_790283.htmlAccording to the Louisville Courier-Journal, the theme park's creators are currently seeking state tax incentives that could allow them to recover 25 percent of the facility's cost. Some are questioning whether such a stimulus would violate the separation of church and state.
Lexington's WLEX reports that the attraction and its museums, theaters, amenities, event venues and outdoor parking will cost at least $150 million, and will take three years to build. Estimates suggest that the park could bring 1.6 million visitors annually and provide at least 900 new jobs to the area.
Yet another instance where good business doesn't mean good science or good Constitutionality (state-funded religion). And yet another instance where political affiliation has no bearing on stupidity.
Using similar arguments, one could argue for a white supremacy museum. It'll probably bring lots of jobs and money to that state or city.
