Two billboard companies have refused to display an atheist group’s advertisement protesting the Ark Encounter park in northern Kentucky.

Tri-State Freethinkers president Jim Helton says the group has raised $10,000 for a billboard depicting Noah's Ark with people drowning around it and the words, "Genocide and Incest Park: Celebrating 2,000 years of myths."

The ad has been turned down by billboard companies Lamar and Event Advertising and Promotions. Helton says the group is considering erecting the billboard outside of Kentucky, if it can find a taker.

The Ark Encounter park is a product of Answers in Genesis, which also owns the Creation Museum.

In March, AIG President Ken Ham called the billboard campaign an attack on Christianity.
