oddeye The dinosaurs.... breathed so fucking hard that their nostrils caught on fire.....
sven Can someone explain to a non-American why "God put the fossils there to test/trick us" seems to have been abandoned in favor of the much more falsifiable "Dinosaurs lived with people 3000 years ago"? Was it because kids really wanted to see dinosaurs at the Creationist Museum?
Bort Probably because it's more satisfying to claim that scientists and their godless heathen allies are perpetrating a great hoax against poor persecuted Christians, than to concede that scientists are "apparently" right but in reality God is playing tricks on everyone.
In America, facts are whatever you want to believe.
Syd Midnight That's a classic philosophical argument, but these aren't exactly the college learnin' type. Most of their arguments are something their own cornfed sect thought up in the last 200 years or so.
Universities are dens of evil, deep thought is how Satan injects doubt into your mind, and Saint Augustine is where you go golfing while on vacation.
IrishWhiskey A lot of them admit up front that the reason they talk about dinosaurs and people together is because it appeals. Telling kids that believing in God means not believing in dinosaurs will lead to them rejecting the former. Telling them that believing in God maybe lets them play with dinosaurs and it's the meany 'scientists' who claim their dead, works better.
memedumpster Now imagine never having heard of this insanity before and running headfirst into it at a Creation Museum surrounded by believers.
