Quote# 52409

From a review of the film Dinosaur on the web site of the Child Care Action Project. This whole website is a giant steaming pile of fundie:

Protagonists might get the impression that a sub plot of the story is of togetherness during times of distress, portraying that all peoples of all races and ages can live and work together and can attain much more in unity than in division [Luke 11:17]. While this is true, the T-Rexes and other meat-eaters (pure speculation, by the way--we do not know for certain that any dinosaurs were carnivorous -- there was no death before the great Fall) did not flock with the plant eaters, so division was still present--and thankfully so (in the animal world, anyway). The last time what is now the predator by nature laid next to what is now the prey was in the Garden of Eden and there will come a day when this happens again [Is. 11:6]. Since the period of Dinosaur is between Creation and the Garden of Eden, no one knows for sure how predator/prey aggression manifested itself if at all. The Bible speaks of a time when the lion will eat hay like the ox [Is. 11:7], so carnivorous attacks on live prey will one day not be vital to survival and perhaps, long ago, were not.

Sure dem teef iz fur eaingz teh grazzez

I think we do know for certain that many dinosaurs were meat eaters, the teeth for instance plus fossilized dung which shows what they ate.

I guess for a fundtard like Thomas Carder though, if it aint in the bible it didn't happen.

This is the usual sick fundie crap with their lion and lamb scenario as if eating teh grass by carnivores was suddenly re-created to eatz teh meatz of udder aminals.

They say evolution is crazy yet this proposition suggests a quantum evolution step viz the fall. So fucked up that Adam sins makes herbivores suddenly go out of their minds and start eating meatz but only sum ov dem. As we still have herbivores but that iz not explained.

I wonder if all teh birdies were seedivores before dey became insect/fish eaters and not to mention bats that also eat insects.

I wonder if teh fishies just ate seaweedz before dey bagan eatingz each udder?

This is beyond fucked up.

This is primarily the reason why Christians were eaten by lions. those sharp teeth must be for stripping leaves.

So T-Rex had those teeth to make it easier to open packets of peanuts?

I still don't really get this fundie argument. How is killing a plant any better than killing an animal? They are both alive and have the same right to live as anything else.

So, the gist of your argument is that animals were always segregated into herbivores and carnivores, but you also assert that carnivores didn't actually exist. I don't think you've thought this through.

"The Bible speaks of a time when the lion will eat hay like the ox"

ergo, Bible is full of shit.

11/18/2008 10:46:27 AM


Yep T-Rex needed those big teeth, back then salads were tough.

11/18/2008 11:10:02 AM


"Since the period of Dinosaur is between Creation and the Garden of Eden"

How long does the bible say that is? Two days? Three?

Surely I'm misreading something here? Or does Mr Carder really believe that the age of dinosaurs lasted only a few days, after which they ceased to exist despite the fact that 'there was no death'?

While this is true, the T-Rexes and other meat-eaters (pure speculation, by the way--we do not know for certain that any dinosaurs were carnivorous...

A big clue to a creature's diet is the sort of teeth it has. For instance, the sharp, pointy teeth found in the T-Rex's mouth are designed to tear flesh--they would have been completely useless for eating vegetation. Plant-eaters have very few sharp teeth, and tend to have lots of dulled or flattened teeth, which aid the creature in grinding up leaves, etc.

Don't believe me? Take a few moments to check the teeth in your cat's mouth.

a mind far far away

I second the "giant steaming pile of fundy".

Dinosaur is a cartoon. It's not real. Wake up!

11/18/2008 3:04:49 PM


Didn't some Creationist say that the teeth of the T Rex were that way to open coconuts ?

11/18/2008 3:31:30 PM


It's not physically possible for a lion to eat hay effectively, their teeth can't grip it, and their digestive tract would have no idea what to do.

11/18/2008 4:16:54 PM


Are you fucking kidding me? Who would pay any attention to this jackass?

Pure speculation? How about reasoned conclusions drawn from evidence, as opposed to facts pulled directly from one's anus?

Lions may have eaten hay? First, their teeth would have had a hard time grinding up plant matter and their digestive system would not have allowed them to get the nutrients they needed. IO am sure this douchabag would say that maybe a Lions teeth and digestive system were different "before the fall" because there was no death but he has of course just conceded evolution.

It is amazing that this drivel actually has an audience, I mean seriously how stupid can people be?

Mental retardation seems like a good enough reason for posting this huge pile of steaming dinosaur manure!

11/18/2008 4:51:28 PM

This photo clearly shows a t-rex eating a jesus fish. Perhaps they were pesco-vegetarians.

11/18/2008 4:53:16 PM


Small critters are vegetables, except for Ceiling Cat.

11/18/2008 5:04:25 PM


Is it just me, or are they getting dumber?

11/18/2008 5:15:19 PM


CapAlert is awesome. It's too bad that he can't get donations from other clueless fundies to keep that site updating more regularly.

11/18/2008 5:20:22 PM


If there was no death, then why the fuck bother eating at all?

11/18/2008 5:21:42 PM


You must see how this book fucks up your concept of reality
