I don’t like to make fun of deeply-held beliefs, but this is really scary! Do they explain why no dinosaurs made it onto the Ark?
From the article:
An Australian who found “Young Earth” creationism while teaching science to school children in Brisbane, Ham, 55, came to the United States in 1987 to spread the word of Biblical truth.
His fundamentalist evangelical ministry — Answers in Genesis — publishes dozens of books, DVDs and curriculums every year teaching Christians how to defend their faith by refuting evolution.
These glossy publications offer what they call scientific proof that the Earth is just 6,000 years old; the Grand Canyon was formed when a natural dam burst under the weight of Noah’s floodwaters 4,300 years ago; and that all animals — including the Tyrannosaurus rex — were vegetarian before the fall of Adam and Eve brought sin into the world.
Dinosaur bones were fossilized very quickly you see, because the flood waters were so strong and all. You know how Superman crushes coal in his fist and turns it into diamonds? Yeah, it’s kind of like that.
