Dinosaurs Didn't Exist
12th Feb 2007
Sometimes you come across Christian Fundamentalism so lacking in anything like common sense and intellectual rigour that it becomes pure comedy rather than something to worry too much about.
Take charlesfinney.com (open in a new window), this site is so far off the chart that it's actually quite hard to be offended by it. Though I'm sure if you had a look around you'll probably find something suitably scary in there somewhere.
I particularly enjoyed the Evolution section explaining that dinosaurs never existed.
In my quest to find the truth about Dinosaurs, I discovered some interesting facts. Let me ask you a few questions:
Why do you believe in dinosaurs?
Have complete skeletons been found?
Were all the bones linked together?
Or were the bones just found in one area, and then joined up later?
It is possible that the skeletons were constructed out of different animals. It is possible that the bones got bent into different shapes by the great weight of the dirt and rock above.
Some scientists have made complete pictures of dinosaurs based on just a single bone or tooth or leg. Half of all 'dinosaurs' found are under 15 feet in length. If crocodiles grew large, skeletons could have been mistaken for dinosaurs. They could have easily used a whale bone to construct a larger dinosaur.
Normally you'd expect me to be offended about a fellow Christian talking so much crap and making our faith look so intellectually bankrupt. But this site is so unintentionally hilarious I find it very hard to believe anyone would take it seriously.
Interestingly the site itself, despite it's fundie credentials doesn't actually seem to subscribe to Biblical Christian teaching. The author seems to think that to become a Christian is become sinless, which is a pretty severe misreading of the New Testament.
Still, it's worth visiting for a good laugh. Here's another choice morsel.
Aliens, ET's and UFO's: extraterrestrials: The X files, Hangar 18, Area 51, Roswell, New Mexico, and who can forget the very popular movies like: "ET", "Independence Day", "Men in Black", Aliens, UFo's, space people, martians. ET's are not what they appear to be, they are fallen angels; devils masquerading as "nice and friendly" space creatures.
It's not all fun and games. While the confessions page on the site is just pure genius it does link to a rather worryingly ill-considered page where the confessions of others are posted online including the phone numbers of children. Creepy.
