If You Don’t Have a Costume Yet…

Reader Stu would just like to remind everyone who doesn’t have a Halloween costume yet that if you can provide your own beard and robe, you can totally go as Jesus riding a dinosaur:

creationistjesus

I wonder if they have adult versions of that…

In any case, it would make Ken Ham and other Creationists very proud.

You have to get inspiration from somewhere:

Jesus and Dinosaur

    “Omnipotent yellow”?

    I don’t remember Bob Ross ever using that color.

    I don’t get it: I thought Jesus was a raptor

  • MaleficVTwin

    That picture hurts my brain…..

  • Jonas

    Call me ‘overly skeptical’ but is this really from ‘Beginner’s Bible Coloring Book?’ I mean kids might become curious about Dinosaurs, and be driven to the heathenous Discovery Channel.

    Think about it, evidence (never let evidence interfere with faith) presented on the Discovery Channel might suggest Dino’s weren’t around when humans were. — What did Fred Flintstone have as a pet?? Inquiring minds want to know.

    That kid actually looks more like Obama riding a dinosaur.
    After all, we know Jesus wasn’t black, just as we know he spoke English.

  • Epistaxis

    I wonder if they have adult versions of that…

    I think I’ve seen it at a convention.

  • Amy G

    I’m with Jonas. Is the coloring sheet actually from a creationist’s coloring book, or is it a spoof? It’s hard to believe that anyone would ever believe that.

    The names of the colours are indeed the funniest part of the drawing!

    I love the Omnipotent Yellow and the Flesh of Christ specially!

  • McBloggenstein

    Oh wow that’s a great idea! I’ve been thinking about a costume for this year. Loads of people head downtown here in Austin for Halloween, including some fundies with a huge cross and their pamphlets to tell everyone that they are sinning. I will look for this costume at Target. If I do it and taunt the fundies, I’ll at least get you photos or video.

  • Jim

    They sure get a lot of mileage out of “Flesh of Christ” – from crackers to crayons and everything in between… lol

  • Kris

    So, let me get this straight… Dinosaurs were alive 2000 years ago… through the Roman Empire? Wow, if only Hannibal had known, I’m sure he would have ridden brontosaurus over the Pyrenees rathern than elephants.

  • Revyloution

    Jonas and Amy have nice good clean skeptical minds.

    Ive seen this picture in many different places, and a quick google search doesn’t bring back any easy to find answers.

    Poe’s law demands that this could be the real thing, or at least something that could be easily mistaken for the real thing.

    Does anyone know if this is from a real creationist Christian coloring book?

    I thought the flesh of Christ as a color was obviously parody. I’ve seen the picture before but never with the text. Never knew of this version. I always thought it was just a picture poking fun at people who believe dinosaurs and humans coexist. I’d still think it’s parody in this version, but since the question arose, no I’m doubtful whether it is a parody or not. Damn you Poe’s Law! (The pot might have something to do with that too.)

    “…if only Hannibal had known, I’m sure he would have ridden brontosaurus over the Pyrenees rathern than elephants.”

    And unleashed a horde of raptors to devour the Roman legions!

    Oh how sweet that would be…

    I thought the creationist explanation for dinosaur fossils was that dinos had been killed in the great flood, or some time before that? They wouldn’t still be around for Jesus to play cowboy on.

  • Bacopa

    It the Romans who had the dinosaurs. That’s how they beat Hannibal. The Romans used their last two allosaurs to panic the elephants. Later on the Marcellus lost the last of the roman tricerarops calvary in a futile attempt to take Syracuse. Marcellus wisely turned to bribery to take the city. Dinosaurs were no match for Archimedes’ high tech weaponry. The romans lost the last of their dinosaur forces when Scipio decided the two T-rex he brought with him were two expensive to feed and had them chained and killed before the walls of Carthage. Seeing mighty dragons killed sapped the will of the Carthaginians.

    Here’s the artist’s website if anyone needs the Jesus on a raptor or Jesus fighting Darwin pics. He’s got some cool stuff.

  • Kaylya

    There is something called the Beginner’s Bible, and it does have some coloring activities, but the art style is different.

    It looks like this is a flickr set of works by the artist:

    Parody.

    If they can’t even agree on things they call fundamental, can you really expect them to agree on something like dinosaurs? You might as well suggest the 30 years war never happened.

  • Angie

    Did Ken Ham have something to do with this? I clearly resemble a triceratops with a saddle at the Creation Museum.

    Marcus, you’re on Hannibal’s side? What the hell? Didn’t you watch Gladiator? Romans are awesome! lol

    Amy, how simplistic your mind is! Yes, the dinosaur fossils were deposited by the great flood. That’s why they happen to have been churned into such deep strata. But, alas, the flood couldn’t have killed them all, because Noah was instructed to bring two (or seven, depending on whom you ask) of each kind, which of course includes dinosaurs. So, they survived the flood. And then died out. Why did they die out after the flood? Donno. They don’t say.

    You’ve got to give it to them for not taking the easy way out.

    And, parody or not, that coloring book is certainly plausible. They sell stranger books at the creation museam, or so the photo tours tell us.

  • Carlie

    A church I went to long ago had a creationist pastor, and he made a specific series of sermons tailored by an ICR workshop he had attended. One of the sermons was titled “How dinosaurs fit on the ark”. I wasn’t there for it, but heard from my parents after that the main point was that they were baby dinos.

    Jonas , “Faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen.”-Hebrews 11:1 .

    There’s right faith and wrong faith .

    Example Ken Ham and Kent Hovind have RIGHT FAITH.

    Charles Darwin, Dan Brown, Richard Dawkins, and the Pope (any of them ) have the WRONG FAITH.
