Noah's Ark Found in China

Three Chinese billionaires have built a life-sized replica of Noah's Ark outside a ruined financial district near Hong Kong. Sure, replica's of the mythical boat have been attempted before, but the Kwok brothers insisted theirs be built to the exact specifications laid out in the Bible. Why, you ask? Well, that's a little murky. Apparently, the project has been in the works for seventeen years. Since there's a luxury hotel inside, I assume is was some sort of touristy moneymaking scheme. But since the global economic collapse, turning a profit seems a little iffy. Now, the brothers claim the ark is meant to raise awareness of global warming and the dangers of rising sea levels. Also, something about showing the world that the "financial tsunami" will soon be over. Anyway, only 67 pairs of fiberglass animals fit on the thing, which is pretty interesting when you consider this conclusively proves that the Bible is full of shit. More details here.
