God's own country

Yorkshire could be the site of a Christian theme park.

The �144m park “where Disney meets the Bible” will feature a holy roller-coaster based on the story of Jonah and the whale, a Garden of Eden bio-dome (with prelapsarian nudity?) and a recreation of the parting of the Red Sea.

At its heart will be a Noah’s ark, although whether it will be built of gopher wood as specified in Genesis is unclear. But it could well be correct in size, the length of it “300 cubits, the breadth of it 50 cubits, and the height of it 30 cubits”.

Wasn’t this in an episode of The Simpsons, where Ned Flanders had a similar plan and everyone started having visions because of escaping gas?
