Some call it a coincidence, while others call it confirmation. Many captured photos of the double rainbow over the Cincinnati Reds baseball game.
What makes this double rainbow so special? It appeared during a rain delay, alongside the ads and messaging of the Ark Encounter.
What is the Ark Encounter?
In 2016, the Ark Encounter opened to the public. According to its website, the “Ark Encounter features a full-size Noah’s Ark, built according to the dimensions given in the Bible. Spanning 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, this modern engineering marvel amazes visitors young and old.”
The Ark Encounter tells the story of Noah and the Ark and invites visitors into the experience. According to the attraction’s website, there are hundreds of other flood myths from around the world, many dating back to before Moses’ writings.
Visitors can walk through three levels of the enormous ark. Deck 1 helps guests understand “the size and scope of the biblical ark as visitors walk through a storage area and learn about animal kinds.” Deck 2 helps explain what life was like before the flood and how God prepared Noah. And Deck 3 includes possible “living quarters for Noah and his family, flood geology, post-flood events, and a special Museum of the Bible exhibit.”
The Ark Encounter Sponsors the Rain Delay for Cincinnati Reds
As part of the Ark Encounter’s marketing plan, the organization sponsors local businesses and teams, such as the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. What the Ark Encounter didn’t plan on was a double rainbow to coincide with the company’s ads during a rain delay.
CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis and the Ark Encounter Ken Ham tweeted images capturing the double rainbow along with the Ark Encounter ads sponsoring rain delays for the Cincinnati Reds baseball game.
“It was exciting to see a double rainbow during a rain delay at the Cincinnati Reds game Saturday evening as storms went through the area,” Ham shared. He also posted the images to Instagram.
With nearly 60,000 views and hundreds of interactions, followers on social media were quick to add their opinions.
“The rainbow is pinky promise between him and his creation that he would never destroy the Earth again by water,” commented one follower.
