Bigger worry are teddy bears. Children can grow up thinking that bears are cuddly.

They both have permanent mydriasis. Unfortunately ophthalmology is yet to be invented.

Highflymk3, many citizens of the United States believe this to be a fact. Others believe that the fossils were put there by their 'god' to test their faith!

When Noah was going through the preliminary design review for the ark with God, Noah pointed out that in the given the timescale, materials budget and availability, there was no way he was going to get the brontasauruses on. At this point Noah's wife Naamah (Nelly to UK viewers), chipped in and said, in no uncertain terms, there was no way that she was having T-Rex (pre-Marc Bolan version) on either, so God had the decision minuted as 'No dinosaurs'.

Some grown adults believe humans and dinosaurs co-existed (and not at different times!)

Mind you, some grown adults believe the earth is flat.


I "met" Mr Ham once; I'd been in Cincinnati, Ohio, for a while when one morning while having breakfast in a diner, for the first time in weeks, maybe months, I heard another Australian accent at the next table over. It was the summer of 2005 and at that stage I'd never heard of him, but it rapidly became clear from his conversation with his dining partner that they were planning some sort of loopy religious project - in retrospect obviously his creation museum theme park in Northern Kentucky.

I kept my mouth firmly shut and ordered by pointing to the menu.

I deliberately omitted Creationists as it is not right to mock the afflicted.

And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. Maybe some dinosaurs and unicorns. And God saw that it was good. He sayeth "Yabba Dabba Do!"

Too much violence. And anyway, the big guy's name used to be Brutus, but they changed his name to Bluto??

Can't beat a good Warner Brudders Bugs Bunny cartoony, with Yo-Sammity Sam (or how I imagined it to be, never having seen it written down) or Tthhhylvethter the Puddy Tat. "OK, Muggsy, roughs up da boid!"
