‘Christians Against Dinosaurs’ Exists, In Case You Needed Something To Laugh About Todayâ€
In what I deeply hope for the sake of humanity is a joke, a Christian parent posted on a message board about their concern for our children learning about dinosaurs. Not just that they aren’t real because of their religious beliefs, but because they are questioning the morality of dinosaurs. It’s from an organization called “Christians Against Dinosaurs.” If it’s a joke, it’s a fantastic one. If they are serious, I am truly afraid for our future as a species. It might be one of the dumbest things I’ve ever read in my life.
This thread has gone viral and has over 1000 replies. It is now closed but it is worth a perusal for it’s humor value. Here it is and here is the original post, with my analysis in between:
I’m really concerned about dinosaurs, and I think something needs to be done. The science behind them is pretty flimsy, and I for one do not want my children being taught lies. Did you know that nobody had even heard of dinosaurs before the 1800s, when they were invented by curio-hungry Victorians?
There are people that would say this poster’s religion is a “lie” but that doesn’t stop some from wanting it in schools. And yes, fossil evidence and thousands of hours of study definitely makes for some flimsy claims, amirite? And no, I had no idea they were invented by curio-hungry Victorians and that’s probably because it’s complete bullshit!
Charles Darwin’s later theory of evolution entirely disproved dinosaurs, yet the dinosaur lie was twisted and adapted to try to make it fit. Any proper look at the facts will reveal that dinosaurs simply never existed.
Well, no, actually. Darwin just did not have the fossil evidence during his time to prove that dinosaurs existed but scientists later on were able to dig it up. Keep trying, though! This is just starting to get good.
Aside from the educational aspect, dinosaurs are a very bad example for children. At my children’s school, several children were left in tears after one of their classmates (who had evidently been exposed to dinosaurs), became bestially-minded and ran around the classroom roaring and pretending to be a dinosaur. Then he bit three children on the face. One poor girl has been left with a severely dented nose and the whole class was left traumatized by this horrible display.
Won’t someone PLEASE think of the children?!
