Young-Earth Creationist Ken Ham has said that while a small group of atheists are planning to protest the Ark Encounter, the newly-opened life-sized replica of Noah's Ark in Kentucky, there have been tens of thousands of visitors in two days alone, with many more expected to come.
"Many news sources today (including my homeland of Australia) are reporting on a group protesting the life-size Ark opening today in N. Kentucky. News.com.au states there'll be a 'renewed wave of protest' — as if there's some sort of massive protest against the Ark. One news source had the headline 'Protesters fire up as Aussie's ark opens.' Wow. This must be some massive protest!" Ham wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday, the day of the official opening of the theme-park.
"Now let's see — first of all, it is a group of primarily atheists who will be protesting a Christian facility — not a surprise! Secondly, according to their Facebook, they have just over 100 going to protest," he added, posting a screenshot of the planned atheist protest's Facebook page, which shows 112 people who have said they are going. more >>

Last month, the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation was prompted by a complaint from an anonymous resident and sent a demand letter to Doug Murphy, the police chief of Harper, Kansas, demanding that his department remove a decal placed on one of the municipality-owned patrol trucks.
The decal, which was located on the upper right-hand corner of the truck's tailgate, read "Romans 13:4." more >>
God is able to change the heart and mind of an atheist, according to famed evangelist the Reverend Billy Graham.

"I read an article the other day about a woman who had been a committed atheist, and somehow she became a Christian. But I have some friends who are atheists, and I can't imagine any of them ever believing in God or becoming Christians. Could they ever change?" posited the person. more >>
