Letter: We're all equal under God

To the Editor:

Last year my wife and I went to see the ARK Encounter, which is located off I-75 in Williamstown, Kentucky. I cannot say enough about our visit. It was unbelievable and definitely worth the adventure. 

Along with the ark, we were fortunate to catch a presentation by the creator of the ARC Encounter. He spoke of how God created all of us equal and pointed out that there is no difference between us and demonstrated this by pointing to his face and asked how many of you think I am white? Many of us held up our hands. He then took a piece of white construction paper and placed it by his face and said "No, this is white." It was obviously much whiter than his face.

He then held up a piece of black construction paper and held it by his face. Obviously it was much blacker then any of my brown or black friends. His point is that we are all merely different shades of the same color. All equal under God.
