The ark will be the centerpiece of a proposed $170 million religious theme park that has been approved for $40 million in taxpayer-funded incentives. A state tourism board gave preliminary approval on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, for up to $18 million in tax rebates for the proposed full-sized replica of Noah's Ark as described in the book of Genesis. An independent consultant will now study the feasibility of the project and make a recommendation for the board to consider. (AP Photo/Dylan Lovan, File)
