How to Make an Ark Encounter Animal

by Ark Encounter on February 19, 2016

Words aren’t enough to portray how much talent, work, and thought goes into making even just one animal kind for the life-size Ark opening in Northern Kentucky. So here’s a video for you to see for yourself.

You heard which Ark animal kind is AiG lead artisan Doug’s current favorite; which animal was your favorite? Let us know by mentioning @arkencounter on Twitter.

As you could see in the video, the animals on board the Ark over 4,300 years ago don’t look the same as the animals we see walking on Earth today. Have you even heard of an anisodon or a pakicetus? Since the time of Creation about 6,000 years ago, and perhaps especially after the Flood, animals have “speciated” from their original forms. No, this does not represent molecules-to-man evolution. Molecules-to-man evolution demands the development of new genetic information that could turn one kind of animal into another kind of animal over time, and we’ve never seen that process occur in nature. However, when it comes to speciation, the loss of genetic information from one generation to the next frequently occurs, and that’s why we see so many different varieties within the animal kinds today. Learn more about speciation.

Walking through the exhibits on board the life-size Noah’s Ark will be a fun and fascinating educational experience for your family. We encourage you to make a trip to visit with people from your church, your friends, family, neighbors, and anyone else you can think of. Tickets are on sale now for the first 40 days and 40 nights. Be one of the first on board.

Please join us in praising God for all of the researchers, designers, fabricators, artists, and everyone else involved in the life-size Ark project. While they have a lot of work to finish in a short amount of time, the workers will tell you that it is pretty cool to work on dinosaurs and other animals all day.

Please pray that God would be glorified and that many people would come and see that the Bible can be trusted from the very beginning. Also pray that guests will understand that, as the door of the Ark provided Noah and his family an entrance into physical safety from the Flood, it is Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, who is the door to eternal salvation. He paid the penalty for our sins on the cross and conquered death by rising from the dead.
