The fundies are apparently upset by dinosaurs with feathers...

It must wear a "good Christian" down to have to always have to fight their way back to stone age beliefs.

Wow, the willful ignorance is... overwelming.   :o
Being a Christian, I've made my decision. That decision offers no compromise; therefore, I'm closed to anything else.

I wish I could say that I was surprised.

In fairness, keeping up with the way scientific theories can change can be tiresome.  But that's not an excuse to dig your heels in and pretend that it's all just some hoax.

Just to clarify... did Noah forget to put the dinosaurs on the ark?  Is that why we don't have them around anymore?

Not exactly on topic but I've been hanging to use this somewhere...
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Damn, if NOah had just had a little bit more time to build the Ark a little bigger.

This is similar to white men trying to take the word okay back.

okeh, originally a Choctaw affirmation, which was said on the end of every important sentence, m'kay. It must have been fairly addictive, m'kay. Later, Oklahoma was named OK by the postal service, m'kay. Then there was a Choctaw town, renamed to Okay, OK, m'kay.

You reckon it was a coincidence that a bunch of people who said OK all the time, suddenly got to live in a state called OK?

Later, OK was reverse engineered in 1840 by gr8 1eet speekers, to mean "oll korrect". The Boston slang idea was then popularised by white people as the true origin of OK.

As an aside, you gotta love a comic with citations.

"Deferinate" itself appears to be a new word... though I'm perfectly carmotic with it.
