Quote# 77915

What would be the motivation for such a deceptive endeavor? Obvious motivations include trying to prove evolution, trying to disprove or cast doubt on the Christian Bible and the existence of the Christian God, trying to disprove the young-earth theory, and trying to disprove creationism. Yes, there are major political and religious ramifications.

The dinosaur concept implies that if God exists, He tinkered with His idea of dinosaurs for awhile, then probably discarded or became tired of this creation and then went on to create man. The presented dinosaur historical timeline suggests an imperfect God who came up with the idea of man as an afterthought, thus demoting the biblical idea that God created man in His own image. Dinosaurs are not mentioned in the Bible.

Highly rewarding financial and economic benefits to museums, educational/research organizations, university departments of paleontology, discoverers and owners of dinosaur bones, and for the book, television, movie and media industries, may cause sufficient motivation for ridiculing of open questioning and for suppression of honest investigation.

So, a supposedly unchanging god changed his mind on dinosaurs?

Trust me when I say this: absolutely no deception whatsoever is needed in order either to disprove the bible or to prove evolution.

"may cause sufficient motivation for ridiculing of open questioning and for suppression of honest investigation"
Yeah, because we don't want any of that, do we? Open questions and honest investigations, teh horror!

It's easy, really; the people who wrote the Bible did not know about dinosaurs. That's why they aren't mentioned in there.
America is also not mentioned, as that continent wasn't discovered yet.

Young Earth and creationism have been debunked, time and time again. No reason therefore of "trying to disprove" them.
Keeping with reality has no political ramifications whatsoever.
Millions of people manages to be religious AND live in reality, so very little ramifications there as well.

Dinosaurs are not mentioned in the Bible.

Yet other creationists claim that the bible did mention dinosaurs and then claims the flood made them extinct. So which creation theory is right? Genesis 1 or Genesis 2

You creationists ought to get all your "shit in one sock" and spout some consistent shit!

The existence of a population of millions of gullible morons may cause sufficient motivation for ridiculing of open questioning and for suppression of honest investigation.

All you need to disprove the Bible is ... the Bible. Dinosaurs are just way cool extra fun!

“Highly rewarding financial and economic benefits to museums, educational/research organizations, university departments of paleontology, discoverers and owners of dinosaur bones, and for the book, television, movie and media industries, may cause sufficient motivation for ridiculing of open questioning and for suppression of honest investigation.”

So what were the motivations back before dinosaurs were such a hot commodity?

So I guess all the oil in the earth was put there by God so Christians and Muslims could fight over it 6,000 years later?

"... ridiculing of open questioning* and for suppression of honest investigation."

Can I be your mirror polish supplier?
I bet you go through several cases a day to keep it that shiny.

* By open questioning you obviously mean something along the lines of Glenn Beck. Such as, "I'm not saying Darwinist evolutionists are all atheist, Muslim, homo Satan worshippers who hate god and rape children. I'm just asking a question."

Meanwhile churchs have been pulling in big cash for centuries for the right reasons? The only argument you people have used is "The Bible says the Earths only 6000 years old" which is not just ridiculous but your Bible doesn't say that.

The young-Earth concept is believed by a small fringe group of Christians and entirely based on some invented and illogical caculations by one man. This is what's revealed by honest investigation. Christians of your ilk don't know your Bible let alone it's roots and most you refuse to investigate either, instead you listen to your leaders who only deal with small parts of the book.

The actual knowledge of most creationist of the Bible is of the Childrens Illustrated versions

And God looked unto his raptors and triceratops and realized he was bored as hell, yet when he visited his holy remote unto his 80 inch plasma, there was nothing good on, and he was even more bored and with great wrath he nuked his creations with meteors and shit and saw it was mildly amusing!

Later, in space, God was once again bored as hell and made Man, regrettably, he also made Rushdoony.

Study of evolution is not aimed at disproving your stupid story. It is like any other science and just follows where the evidence leads. There is no conspiracy. You are a tool.

This is some pretty hilarious shit.

So you're saying that either dinosaurs didn't exist, or your holy book is wrong?

Well, we have more than enough fossils; dinosaurs did exist.

SO YOUR HOLY BOOK MUST BE WRONG.

The presented dinosaur historical timeline suggests an imperfect God who came up with the idea of man as an afterthought, thus demoting the biblical idea that God created man in His own image

And the conclusion you draw from that is that a thousand-hand collection of stories by Bronze age Arabs is right and thousands of scientists working for centuries in a dozen different fields are all in some giant conspiracy to prove the stories wrong? How about the simplest conclusion, reached by St. Augustine back in the 4th century: this Genesis stuff isn't to be taken as literal science or history?

Is this guy seriously suggesting that dinosaurs never existed?!

Oh wait, it's Rushdoony. I know who this guy is; he is the inventor of Dominionism (that or someone who took his name, since I'm pretty sure that he's dead.) He cannot be trusted.

"The dinosaur concept implies that if God exists, He tinkered with His idea of dinosaurs for awhile, then probably discarded or became tired of this creation and then went on to create man."
Translation: "Waaahhhh someone suggested I'm not the center of the universe!"

"Dinosaurs are not mentioned in the Bible."
I think your old pal Mr. Hovind would like to have a word with you.

Sadly, real museums barely scrape by.

Theme parks on the other hand, such as the "Creation Museum" rake in oodles of cash by appealing to the lowest common denominator.
