The Truth About Dinosaurs





I'm thinking about going to this. I'd need to leave about 50 minutes from now.

What's my objective? I don't care to "debate" anyone who makes a career of presenting a fundamentalist Christian version of the place of Dinosaurs in natural history. I could probably get a synopsis of Dr. G Thomas Sharp's arguments on the Creation Truth Foundation website.

So why go?

Curriosity about the people who will turn up for an event like this? Should I indulge that sort of curriousity? How would it differ from crusing by the scene of a grisly accident?

It seems like I'm trying to talk myself out of going. And still, I'd like to go.

Sick that people REALLY believe these things...
Believers will learn how to reach the lost (that have been plagued with evolution, humanism, and Marxism) with the gospel.

From one of their books.

Dad recently (Teacher's aid job he did) knew a cheerleader on a high school team who was going from 'most popular girl' to 'least popular'. Why? She kept having sh-- go into her pants/skirt during the practice. The reason for this was that she had (has still, I'm sure) STONES. Rarer in young people, but something a doctor could cure with a perscription.

The problem is that her parents are "Christian Scientists", weekly going to a local center not just to hear a sermon but see a bizarre museam of cavemen riding dinosaurs and stuff to re-affirm their faith. Her 'stones' according to her parents and their spiritual guide, are caused likely by her sinning. A teenage girl, of course, is FULL of sinful thoughts and thus the punishment that must be prayed away.

Therefore, she'll undergo years of discomfort, possible internal injuries/infections, and great damage to self-esteem in the cause of 'faith'.

If it wasn't so sad and tragic, it would be funny.

I understand your morbid interest, though. I check Jack Chick's uh 'comic art' out occasionally. Too bad he removed 'Lisa', which showed how warped thinking like that really is.

Would you be so kind as to cut-tag the huge images?

It's your journal, and I understand if you don't want to, but...
I actually have a similar request... would it be possible to post this image a little smaller (or do a cut tag?). The reason is that it's big enough to require a horizontal scrollbar, and for some reason that's making *all* the entries on my friends page too wide for me to read without scrolling sideways on every single sentence.

Alternately, do you know how I can fix this? I'm assuming it's not happening in your own journal, so maybe it's an LJ formatting issue. Not sure. Anyway, if you would be willing to change it, that would be great, and if not, I'll try to find some other solution.

you want to go because God's testing your faith, just like he does with them dinosaur bones!

;)


I'd also be curious to see what 'multi-media stereo sound presentation' entails. My hunch is it's probably not strobes, fractal projections or holograms....

Whew! When I saw the headline, I thought they were REALLY going to spill the beans about what the dinosaurs are up to.

Er, I mean WERE up to.

Shoot. I'm gonna have to change my name now.
