That has got to be a joke. If not, just because the article calls it a "Christian group", doesn't make it so. Fanatics are fanatics. They hide under many names. It's up to us to recognize good fruit from the bad.

Creationists do not believe in dinosaurs. At least, the brand of Creationism I grew up with.

A joke? How could you tell?

Such is the problem with fundamentalists. Satirical humor rests on portraying absurdities, but with fundamentalists there are no beliefs too absurd that you will not find them.

From the Creation Museum itself in Kentucky:
Quote:
The state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life, casting its characters and animals in dynamic form and placing them in familiar settings. Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Edenís Rivers. The serpent coils cunningly in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Majestic murals, great masterpieces brimming with pulsating colors and details, provide a backdrop for many of the settings.
Creation Museum - Creation, Evolution, Science, Dinosaurs, Family, Christian Worldview | Creation Museum

Yes, this is a photo of one of their exhibits (they claim all dinosaurs were herbivorous, and so never molested humans):


And people who believe this insanity VOTE.

Are you suggesting that we nuke them? We can't do that. That would be counterproductive.

Besides, I want to go to that Creation Museum and hear people try to explain with a strait face that a Tyrannosaurus Rex used its bone-crushing jaws to crack coconuts or bite through orange peels like a fruit bat.

The schools should tell the churches to stop filling kids heads with hellfire and eternal damnation.

They're such fools. I thought they believed in dinosaurs, but they lived with humans. And now they're implying that they didn't exist?

They can't even make up their own minds!

Hmm.... Christian fundamentalists, arguing over dinosaurs, Muslim fundamentalists, cutting people's heads off. Which to pay attention to... Hmm... I can't decide...

I'd probably respect Christians a lot more if they had better national representation.

But when they willfully thrust delusional power-hungry turds like Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, and Dubya Bush into the spotlight --- well then you can't trust their core decision-making abilities.

Speaks poorly of an entire group of people who want to be taken seriously but have no idea on how to begin that quest.
