A Young-Earth Creationist History of Dinosaurs

This came to my attention via Facebook. It seems to be intended to be taken completely seriously. I wonder whether they accept the stories of giant gold-mining ants in India, too. Note as well that the creator of this was presumably Protestant (most YECs are) and yet they are happy to treat the apocrypha as [Read More...]

Doctor Who: Frontier in Space

It has been too long since I last blogged about a classic Doctor Who episode. In rewatching the Jon Pertwee era, a while back I reached “Frontier in Space,” which actually ends its final part with a cliffhanger, in which the Doctor has been injured and sends a telepathic message to the time lords, leading [Read More...]

There is a parody site for a “Unicorn Museum” which includes images such as those above and below. One thing that makes this parody particularly useful is that it is liable to be met with objections that it is unfair ridicule.

Ken Ham claims that the legends about St. George and the dragon are proof that humans and dinosaurs (including some that breathed fire, if the billboards for [Read More...]

The very title of the Doctor Who episode “Underworld” hints at its intersection with religion. But while the “underworld” in question turns out to be a world of tunnels with no access to the sky, the episode nevertheless more than lives up to the expectation that it will provide interesting terrain for exploring religion. Although [Read More...]

Dinosaurs in the Book of Job?

A question came up on Facebook about the genre of the Book of Job in the Bible. It is mostly poetry. You can tell in most English Bibles by the formatting on the page. The two line units, with the second line indented, and “thought rhymes” (matching or contrasting ideas) in both of the two, [Read More...]
