Quote# 9842

One of my sons came to me when he was about 4 years old and said, " If dinosaurs lived before man, how did man know dinosaurs lived".

Now you dont think a 4 year old could think so abstractly and it stunned me a bit.

If your childs question was simular to this, you can say.. truthfully, That dinosaurs did not exist before mankind. We know this because death did not enter in until after the fall. So, if death didnt happen until after Adam sinned, then the dinosaurs would never have died out. They had to die after the fall and after the existence of mankind.

And thus was another developing young intellect quashed under the boot of stupidity.

Next time take it to a real museum (not a Creatinist theme Park) before we report you for child abuse!

What did they eat?

<<< you can say.. truthfully, That dinosaurs did not exist before mankind. >>>

No, you cannot. Because they did.

The fact that he used the word \"man\" in that fashion means that he was probably already being inundated by sermons.

Incidentally, did he say it with three syllables? Maa-Yuh-Nuh.

And here, we see the most tragic scene yet. The parent here is infected with \"religion,\" and the disease is now in its replication stage. Since the son is only four years old, his intellect is not fully developed yet, and he has little chance of fighting off the infection.

If I say it loud enough, maybe TameVine will hear it over his/her stupidity.

Am I the only one who appreciates the irony in the fact that this man is getting his \"revelations\" from a four-year old who isn't even in kindergarten yet (where upon his graduation of that grade he will surpass his father's intellectual level)?

Cousin Ted, that's virtually word for word what I would have said. You pegged it perfectly; the metaphor goes a long way toward showing just how well this qualifies as child abuse.

TastyHamSandwich, you assume that the kid will get to go to a non-fundie type of kindergarten; in all probability, the parents will either homeschool the kid or send him to a religious school to further fill him with this garbage. I think he'll be lucky if he's able to finally throw off the mental shackles by adolescence.

It is post like this that make me not want to come here. I would prefer not hearing about all the young minds being corrupted by fundies, especially if I can't do anything about it. And, to think, the Catholic Church indicted people of \"Corruption of the Youth\"... The irony is bittersweet.

So god killed off the dinosaurs because of Adams sin. \"God takes a swing...and he MISSES! Dino's catch the blow and go down for the count. Adam walks away relieved god is such a poor shot.\"

2/28/2006 8:51:40 PM


yeah, THS, that gets me a lot.

The way fundies quote something a small child said, as if to say \"wow, look at the depth of my child!\", when really, any sensible adult would thereafter furnish the child with an answer, rather than saying, wow, my kid must be on to something!

Cool - so Eve eating the apple caused two mass extinctions tens of millions of years apart from each other. I feel so much better for knowing that.

King Spirula: Did God say \"God damn it, I missed!\" when he accidentally killed the dinosaurs? :)

3/2/2006 4:35:09 AM


Nah Satan probably told him to like he did in Job.

3/2/2006 4:39:54 AM


I have a better one, which got a real response.

\"If the bible was written before anyone alive was born, how do we know god wrote it\"

My mother's response: \"That's been my question for 20 some odd years\"

Of course, until I get my copy signed by god himself, I don't buy it anymore. And if I do get it I will post a link to the ebay auction.

If \"if I cover my eyes, you can't see me\" was an abstract concept, I'd be tempted to agree with TameVine.

Big Chicken Dinner

How do we know them bones is from dinosaurs? Its because Dinosaurs existance is carefully explained in the Bible. Humans and dinosaurs continue to co-exist, although some of the bigger ones got eaten.

You see, after the flood, all them trees was wiped out. This made the air thin. because the air was thin, dinosaurs (called dragons back in them days) was always running out of air. This made them easy to catch and they was good eating. My grandfather said that he heard stories of people catching dinosaurs and making burgers out of them.

If Jesus lived before you did, how do you know Jesus lived?

Hey Tame Vine, why is the sky blue?

QUICK! Make your child dumber!
