I'm amazed that Jesus knew how big a Volkwagen Beetle would be when he created the Giant Wombat.

Uncle Tractor: FLMountainMan: Has anyone actually met someone who believed the whole "Satan put fossils there" thing?

When I was a little kid in sunday school (Ann Arbor, Michigan), the teacher was telling us the one about that big magical boat with two of everything in it.

Innocent little me: "How did they get the dinosaurs on the ark?"
Sunday school teacher: "There were no dinosaurs. That's just a lie."
Me: "Yes there were. I've seen the fossils." (in local museums)

...And that was how I got my ass kicked out of sunday school. IIRC the teacher took me to my parents immediately after the above exchange and told them something along the lines of "bring him back when he's older."

The childhood lesson learned from this and other similar encounters was that christians are weirdos who get angry when you ask them questions.


Ha, hilarious.  Should have gone back when you were much older, and asked about the origins related to Gilgamesh, the inconsistencies in the story, and reduced her to weeping.

You: "WAS IT 7 or 2?  HOW LONG DID THE FLOOD LAST?  WHY WAS NOAH SUCH A DICK TO HAM?"
Her: "I don't knooooooooowwwwwahhhhhhhhhhhhh!"

Oh, don't be silly.  They're not much larger than two meters.  In fact, I used to bullseye them in my T-16 back home.

Not to be jaded, but if these animals were still around, they'd be caged like scorpions or any other exotic species, except where they were driven to extinction, say by a human raid encircling their breeding grounds. With that amount of fur it looks like they would have been fine in sub-zero temperatures, though, unlike the large reptiles of the era. In liu of sharp kano- or kanid- teeth (however it's said) those claws look pretty menacing, if not kitana-sharp, exactly. Sadly, no matter how impressive the species, they are all liable to go up in a blaze of smoke. We're all mortal, Wombat. RIP.

Agent Smiths Laugh: From the article comments:

Giant wombat?   40,000 years ago?   Millions of years?   What absolute rubbish.   Stop trying to turn theories into facts.

It's almost as if some people don't understand what theories are composed of.


Theory? That'th the name of the thpeaking voith on my phone. Thee alwayth hath problemth underthtanding me though. What a pieth of thit.

Holy crap! I thought I was the only one who had that experience. First grade CCD the teacher talked about Adam and Eve and I asked when the dinosaurs and cave men were made. She told me there were no such things as dinosaurs and I asked her why the Field Museum would lie about them. She sent me home with a note for my folks saying I had a bad attitude and couldn't come back until I accepted the teachings of the Church. My parents, both educators, sent the note to the school principal along with a brochure from the museum and a suggestion that they take all CCD teachers on a field trip.

FLMountainMan: Has anyone actually met someone who believed the whole "Satan put fossils there" thing?  I've hung out with people of various religious beliefs most of my life and have never heard that.  I did meet a "Wiccan" at a hostel in Damascus who believed that the Lord of the Rings "probably" happened in real life, it was just so long ago that most evidence had been erased.


Yes,  pretty much.  I grew up with a family that home-schooled and absolutely, vehemently denied evolution.  The second oldest said, and I will never forget this quote, "a bunch of scientists just dug up bones and randomly put them together."  Right.  Sure they did.

Fatass, my co-worker believes the world is 6000 years old.  He also claims that 'the majority of scientists are ready to dismiss the big bang theory' and 'something something (maybe Carbon Dating)' is the basic for all science one this 'something something' gets knocked away, all science will be disproved.

Yeah.  I stopped listening to him a long time ago.

Fatass, I say.  Fatass, look up in to the sky.  There are stars that are millions of light years away, Fatass.  We can measure this.  We know the distances.  It took millions of years for light to travel here or we would be looking at a black sky or at least only the stars that are only 6000 light years away.

Fatass:  God allows this to happen.


The answer is crystal spheres.

Or crystal meth.

Definitely one of those two.

She's only partly right. Is also happened in a galaxy far, far away.

Prepare to be afraid, VERY afraid.  This is the "Home School Curriculum" page from the local "Creation Museum."

/yeah, tangentially related FTW
