You know down this way in KY they are gonna built an ark, don't you?

It's hours away from where I am.

The Bible mentions unicorn 6 times and unicorn 3.

Yes, I would like to see the Creation Museum both now and after the ark project is completed. I was fascinated to hear that some Amish want to be in on that. They built either the largest, or one of the largest, wooden buildings in the world — without modern power tools, of course. It's sturdy, impressive and still standing.

The unicorn of the Bible has very little to do with the creatures you see on fantasy art posters. The word translated "unicorn" in the KJV is a word for wild ox. More on that here. Several times, words have less than precise meanings (like "father-in-law" in my article in "A Soldier for Jesus").

Ah yes, I had forgot which specific animal it was supposed to be...but I remember that.

Yes, the Amish are super cool to me!
And it is a wonderful thing, as it will make it more authentic, don't you think?

We have lots of Mennonites down this way. I've often bought my grains from them, since they can get the 50# sacks, etc. But they cheat- they are electric these days and I have a couple that I talk with from time to time online that have big blogs :-)

But -love those Amish...and their roll butter! Yummmy!
