the amazing, truly amazing thing, is that if you follow XO's thread, the dialogue between father and son is true. My boss and co-worker are creationists and they have said the very same things to me.

And these people really think they believe that stuff.

In effing credible.

mainstream is referring to this conversation:

Dad, did dinosaurs really exist?

Sure they did, son. The Bible says so. They didn't call them "dinosaurs" back then, but instead they were known as "leviathans" or "behemoths".

But, my science teacher says dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. Is that true?

Of course not, son.

Then how old are they?

Well, let's see. The Bible tells us [from Adam and Eve's family tree] that the Universe is only a few thousand years old. So dinosaurs had to have lived within the past few thousand years. That's simple logic, son.

Oh. So that means they were on Noah's Ark?

Absolutely! The Bible says two of every animal were brought [by God] to the ark. Dinosaurs were animals. So, using your logic again son, dinosaurs had to be on the ark.

Huh. So how come scientists say they're older than that? and died way before Jesus?

Well, son, they just make that up. Dinosaur bones don't have labels on them to tell how old they are. In fact, there is no proof whatsoever that the world and its fossil layers are millions of years old. No scientist saw dinosaurs die-

Dad!

No I'm serious. Scientists only find the bones in the here and now, and because many of them are evolutionists, they try to fit the story of the dinosaurs into their view.

That's sad. But I thought scientists were smart?

Sure, but they don't know everything. So they have to make stuff up to fit their beliefs. While you and I, we have the facts, straight from the Bible.

I don't want to be a scientist!

Ha! That's ok, son. It's better to be right, than smart. C'mon, wanna learn how to flip burgers like your Dad?

Yeah!

hey thanks for the blog, I'm the artist/writer for this oddly notorious piece. Personally I like this one better (similar theme, better art) but I like the "story" from this one. Most of the "facts" came from AnswersInGenesis.com. The matter-of-fact anti-logic combined with a kid-focus pretty much inspired the entire piece.

cheers!
