A Creationist is Mad at Pixar for Assuming Humans and Dinosaurs Didn’t Already Live Together

Disney/Pixar released The Good Dinosaur a few days ago, and it appears to be doing well at the box office, giving the final Hunger Games movie a run for its money. The film is all about what would have happened if an asteroid did *not* wipe out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago and humans lived alongside them today.

And who better to talk about dinosaurs living alongside humans than the people who think The Flintstones was a documentary?

At Creation Ministries International, Lita Cosner is obviously upset that the movie just assumes the dinosaurs would have gone extinct millions of years ago if not for an asteroid, since, you know, the Earth only came into being 6,000 years ago.

“Pro-Lifers” Take to Twitter to Praise Planned Parenthood Shooter

While the majority of the country is expressing sympathy to the victims of the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting, there are those who are so despicable, they’re praising the acts of this domestic terrorist that left 3 dead and 9 injured.

Yes, pro-lifers have found the silver lining. You can call them utilitarians, but to assume they’re contemplative, rather than motivated by blood-thirst, may be giving them too much credit. According to a select group of Twitter-dwelling anti-abortionists, the violence carried out by a man wielding an AK-type gun at a women’s health facility yesterday actually did more good than harm if you’re counting the number of abortions he prevented while interrupting the day’s services.

According to Planned Parenthood, 3% of what they do is abortion services. The majority is contraception, STD screenings, and routine care. Statistically, it’s far more likely that someone will have to go a few more days wondering if that rash is something to worry about than being unable to obtain an abortion.

Robert Lewis Dear indiscriminately killed three people who were already established in the world — not knowing their stance on abortion, not caring if his victims had families, giving no consideration to life. He is anti-life no matter how you spin it. Tweeting support, or justification, for his actions makes you no less of a monster.

Here are some people we should all be worried about (some of whom have since deleted their tweets):

If Penn & Teller Being Grand Marshals in a Christmas Parade is “Controversial,” Who’s Complaining?

The grand marshals in Sunday’s Hollywood Christmas Parade will be Penn & Teller.

After Planned Parenthood Shooting, Republican Presidential Candidates Remain Silent

Even though we don’t know exactly why Robert Lewis Dear walked into a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood with an “assault-style rifle” yesterday, killing one police officer and two civilians, surely you can have sympathy for the staffers and patients inside that facility, right?

Hillary Clinton did:

Bernie Sanders did:

As of this writing, however, not a single Republican Presidential candidate has made any public statements about the incident.
