If you study on it, you'll see that atheists, liberal "Christians", and evolutionists attack Genesis far more than any other book in the Bible. They know that Genesis is the foundation for all major Christian doctrines , so they seek to destroy it. You'd think that those folks would smile quietly to themselves about the st00pid fundie Xtians and go on about their business. What happens when creationists make their voices heard? Those atheists and their collaborators get burrs under their saddles. Libel, ridicule, misrepresentation, profanity, and so on ensue. Then there are protests, political pressure, lawsuits...

By the way, what is a "freethinker"? An atheist with an attitude and pretense of intellectualism. It's also a self-refuting title, since in their view, nobody is a freethinker, since we are all slaves to our chemical impulses. Complaining, suing, defaming — it's pointless, since I'm compelled to believe the truth, and you reject it. You savvy?
Today is the opening of the Ark Encounter , and it's been a huge battle. Many falsehoods have been told (and repeatedly refuted), especially that the Ark Encounter is "taxpayer subsidized" , plus other untruths spread by atheists  as well as professing Christians, such as this one . Even a local newspaper had to do a hit piece instead of celebrating the financial benefits to the area . AiG even had to file (and win) a federal lawsuit .

Like a scorpion stings because it's his nature, atheists and evolutionists also protest the Ark Encounter. Some atheopaths wanted to post vile billboards against the Ark Encounter and Christianity in general, but they did not get much traction [13, 14]. In a way, it's kind of funny: atheist protests have helped promote Ark Encounter ! That's right, the alleged "freethinkers" are protesting the Ark Encounter . Eric Hovind of Creation Today will be there to "protest the protest" and witness to those who hate God . EDITS: Bill Nye found the time to visit the Ark Encounter , and Ken Ham's video of atheopaths bussed in to protest  .
So why all the irrational hate? Noah's Ark is a symbol of God's judgement on sin. The Genesis Flood also explains the so-called geologic record, which means that Earth was created recently, so there is no time for evolution to have happened. The Ark is also a type of Christ, (1 Peter 3:20-21), as there is no salvation in anyone other than Jesus (Acts 4:12, John 14:6). We cannot earn our salvation, it is only through the grace of God (Ephesians. 2:8-9, Ezekiel. 18:23, 2 Peter 3:9). Further, there is another Judgement coming, and it will be by fire (2 Peter 3:7). Be reconciled to God while there's still time!
As for me, I'd like to see the creation museum and Ark Encounter. Maybe in a year or two if finances, health, and my schedule allow. Others, well, I hope you'll get over there to see it.
