Quote# 41192

God had Noah build a ship that could hold every kind of animal in the world. God put dragons and other animals in the ark... because the mother of storms was about to hit. The storm hit, the earth went into convulsions, the underground water shattered the earth's surface, the canopy of water above the earth collapsed. Plants, animals and people were drowned and sandwiched with the dinosaurs into layers of mud and rock, except those dinosaurs that were in the ark were "fruitful and multiplied" like other animals. But now the dinosaurs had a BIG problem, THE AIR HAD CHANGED! Remember those trillions of destroyed plants? They made the air rich with oxygen. And big animals need LOTS of oxygen to survive. In the thinner air it was harder to breathe--they got slower and easier to catch. Now you know how the dinosaurs REALLY died.

How do "trillions of destroyed plants" change the oxygen content of the atmosphere? Didn't the earth supposedly revegetate in their fairy story?

Total BS.

FAIL. Physics says you do.

So how did everything else continue to live? Elephants are bigger than a lot of the dinosaurs. Fuck you.

Jack, can you tell me the one about the Three Bears now?

6/18/2008 11:55:39 PM


Creative, I guess... Must have been a pretty big boat though ^^

I prefer Gary Larson's explanation as to how the dinosaurs went extinct. Based on just as much fact, and a lot funnier.

Well slap my face and call me Larry! Of course that's how it happened! Why didn't I see it before?!?

Because you are sane.

If you have to perform such gymnastics to get your beliefs to conform to science (which you fail at, by the way) perhaps you should just let the myths go and deal with reality.

At least he's creative

Typical Jack Chick bullshit.

6/19/2008 12:28:44 AM

Hooooly god. That was pretty much the dumbest thing I've ever read.

OK, fair enough that you believe in God, but dragons?! And... and... I...

Wow, Chick didn't make this up, he lifted this from Hovind. I hope he cited his source.

Allegory for Jesus

Wouldn't the dinosaurs suffocating due to needing lots of oxygen leave every other air-breathing species in a similar position, as the massive numbers of dinosaurs desperately try to intake all the air that they can? And, if the plants all died....how the hell do we have plants today!?

Jack Chick pulling shit out of his ass since the 1950's.

6/19/2008 12:35:19 AM


Allegory for Jesus: For that matter, how did the dinosaurs survive while on the ark?

6/19/2008 12:42:27 AM


Sorry, double post, please delete.

6/19/2008 12:43:18 AM

BAHAHAHAHA!!! A T. Rex got slower and easier to catch for the only eight humans left alive, right!!

6/19/2008 12:45:17 AM


Dragons on a wooden ark? That doesn't sound like a good idea.

God didn't think this one through, now did he?

6/19/2008 12:47:17 AM


You're not making any sense!

6/19/2008 12:49:15 AM


Well that was pretty shortsighted of God.

6/19/2008 1:04:06 AM


[This is what Christians actaully believe]

I've heard this tale before, but it was a lot simpler. It just involved rain for 40 days and 40 nights. Of course, that wouldn't flood the Earth, but I'm getting pedantic here. You either have a very active imagination that could better be used writing paperback fiction or you're a lying asshole. God doesn't like lying assholes.

So the dinosaurs took shallow breaths while they were being fruitful and multiplying?
