Just in case you need a starting point…
Why would Jesus ride a dinosaur? Can any CHristians here help answer that?
Is that a serious Christian product, or a parody?
There’s an interesting article over at Salon today by physicist Paul Davies. He talks about quantum mechanics, meaning in the universe and various flavors of the anthropic principle.
The beginning looks like a quote-mine fest for the ID crowd (which is probably why he’s received the Templeton Prize), but if you read the whole article, he eventually condemns theism as “naive” and “silly.” He does seem to want to inject the idea of meaning and purpose into the universe; however he argues that they arise spontaneously as a natural mechanism of the laws of physics.
Why would Jesus ride a dinosaur?
Because the horses were still (micro)evolving from the pint-size mesohippi on the ark.
If hindsight is 20/20 for God as it is for us he’s probably thinking, “Y’know, if I’d come riding into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday on a Dinonychus instead of that stupid donkey, I probably would have gotten a lot more respect.”
The Jesus I believed in during my Catholic childhood would’ve ridden like a Tolkien Elf: no bridle (and certainly no whip!) needed, just tell the critter where to go. But years before I was a skilled enough reader to tackle Tolkien, I knew that dinosaurs lived and died out a very long time before humans. Jesus hadn’t been born yet then. So there!
That’s because the Catholic Church is meant to undermine Christianity. Everyone knows that dinosaurs died out sometime during the middle-ages. Maybe of the plague.
Dinosaurs were created to test man’s faith. They were evil creatures and were put to death during the Inquisition. Duh.
I saw a movie called “The Bible” and another one called “Jurassic Park.” I did not see John Huston put any dinosaurs on the ark. They going to be left behind but ended up in Jurassic Park due to a clerical error.
I thought this was from the Sunday School Tarot deck until I saw the coloring book reference. I always thought “Leviathan Green” was a little more on the blue and “Rapture Red” a little more vibrant [grin].
This says it all
Er… what is Jesus doing with his right hand? Isn’t that the Sign of the Devil or something?
Er… what is Jesus doing with his right hand? Isn’t that the Sign of the Devil or something? No, that is the Texas Longhorns Hook em Horns sign. GWB makes it all the time. You don’t think our president would do anything Satanic do you?
