Bible Park USA.

Well, well, it sure has been a long saga with plenty of pause in-between. Let’s recap this ironic journey through the desert (in Nashville, but what’s the big deal over geography anyway).

  1. Bible Park USA finds a home in the bursting metropolis of Murfreesboro, Tenn., but it seemed there was also a great rainforest to protect there as well. Maybe that was outside the Jack Daniels distillery. News at 11.
  2. One of the main investors in this CHRISTIAN THEME PARK was a photographer for Penthouse. Nothing smacks of Jesus like a great testimony. Well, doesn’t it? Anybody?
  3. The exodus of God’s people (at least the wannabe staff of BPUSA) splits Murfreesboro en route across some puddle on the highway to the next county of Wilson to the ironic city of Lebanon. Hmmm, maybe they can build a treehouse in a bunch of cedars. You know, endear yourself to the locals.

And now, we have this story from the Christian Post: the $175 million Bible-themed park has a permanent home despite protest, people or even Penthouse. The city known for another god in the Middle East will become the “MECCA” of Christian entertainment. (WOW, Somebody stop me!)

The “edutainment” theme park that boasts a mixed offering of education and entertainment through visual exhibits of Bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments will be located 30 minutes from downtown Nashville.

Some of the featured attractions will include a Bible Land Fly-Through indoor ride, an indoor Exodus Experience featuring the parting of the Red Sea with high-tech standing 25-foot waves and image projection, recording studios for church choirs and a recreation of Noah’s Ark, according to Bible Park USA’s Web site.

Just one thing: That uh, “Exodus Experience“. Let’s just make sure the line to get on the ride doesn’t last 40 days. If so, you may get some nasty reviews and no repeat guests. I’m just sayin’.
