• Christians Against Dinosaurs – yes, these idiots exist.

    There is a group called Christians Against Dinosaurs. They are clearly nuts. This article is taken from Addicting Info. It makes for disturbing reading:

    Most Christians are warm, loving people. Some use their chosen holy book to spew hatred and bigotry. Others…are just insane.

    Apparently, Christians Against Dinosaurs is an actual f*cking thing. While this may seem like a belief system one may temporarily form while having a bad time of exploring the effects of psychedelics, this group of brave Bible-believers is fighting against the horrific, Satanic scientists thrusting upon the world the belief that…dinosaurs existed.

    For some, believing that the world is a mere 10,000 years old and that Jesus rode a T-Rex on his return to Galilee (That’s not in the Bible. Don’t bother.) isn’t good enough. Christians Against Dinosaurs aims to have the titanic lizards removed from classrooms and replaced with pure, Godly, Bibley, stuff — perhaps, like unicorns and dragons.

    The group’s raving lunacy is so prevalent that it has gotten some involved banned from parenting forums, HuffPo reports. CADministry was removed from Mumnet after a tale of disowning her sister after the latter presented her nieces and nephews with dinosaur toys. This Christian, anti-dinosaur crusader warned that lessons about dinosaurs would cause children to become “bestially minded” and bite one another:

    “I am getting sick and tired of dinosaurs being forced on our 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. Recently my sister foolishly gave my two youngest some dinosaur toys for Christmas. After telling her to get out of my house, I burnt the dinosaurs. My children were delighted because they know that dinosaurs are evil. I am fortunate that my family has been very supportive, and has disowned my children’s former aunt.”

    One woman, posting on the group’s YouTube channel, explained that fossils are a gigantic lie perpetrated by ‘Big Paleontology’ to deceive humanity into…paying them.

    “A fossil is not actually a piece of bone,” she says in the video. “It’s actually a bone that was once in the ground that has been filled with limestone, calcium, and other stone-like deposits, so at the end of the day, it’s a rock made out of rocks.”

    “So, you have a rock that’s [six-inches long] and you hand it to a paleontologist, who chips away at it until you have something looking like a bone — and that is a fossil,” she continues.

    After covering a table with broken pieces of…something, she tells viewers to pretend they are paleontologists (ooh, activity time!) and put the shards back together in their original form. She even offered some spackle to assist in the reconstruction.

    But, she says, it’s supposed to be a brachiosaurus skull — and “If you’re a paleontologist and you want to keep your job, you turn that into a brachiosaurus skull.”

      The focus is too narrow. It should be: Xians against fossils. Makes more sense.

      And to consider – it isn’t even April the 1st.

      I think they are doing the world a great favor. It is easy for most people to see how ridiculous their beliefs are.

      • but it is so depressing that so many people in this modern age and in that influential country can give up all claims on rationality.

          Jonathan, you and I know that it (craziness) happens all the time with religious fundamentalists. We win by default, period. Long live Reason!

    • Ahhh, thank you. Now I feel better about missing a question on my math exam!

      ….perpetrated by ‘Big Paleontology’….

      Every time I hear those ridiculously stupid ideas about a worldwide conspiracy that aims to promote “evolutionism” and suppress biblical truth, and which involves pretty much every single biologist, paleontologist and geologist on this planet, I ask myself the same question – where is my fucking paycheck for lying about the evidence for Evolution?
      Seriously though, doesn´t it bother those idiots at least a little that research paleontologists, even if they do get tenure, are lucky to make more than $50,000 per year? (they could easily get two or three times as much if they worked in the industry, esp. the oil and gas industries).

        where is my fucking paycheck for lying about the evidence…?

        Some preachers can tell you where they pick up their paychecks.

      It’s a hoax. Not the dinosaurs. The dinosaur-hating Christians. https://uncertaintist.wordpress.com/2015/02/24/christians-against-dinosaurs-is-a-hoax/

      • JEKinTX

        OH! Is i a hoax! That is just so funny if it is truly a hoax.

        • mattmikalatos

          It appears that it is!

    • JEKinTX

      I just recently joined the group “Dinosaurs Against Christians That Are Against Dinosaurs” LOL! It is crazy how far out the weak limb that some Christians will crawl. The FACT of Evolution and that the Earth is atleast 4 Billion years old can not be rationally disputed. These “Christians Against Dinosaurs” are just ridiculous!

      How can such an attractive woman who obviously isn’t dumb be so dumb…..it makes me so sad
