Two new bits of fun

1) Flock of Dodos is now available on DVD. I you didn’t get a chance to see this at a local science museum last year, or if you want to see it again, now’s your chance.

2) A new Chick tract,There Go the Dinosaurs, explains how the dinosaurs went extinct due to being hunted by humans (Scientists just made up the bull about a meteorcomet hitting the earth because they don’t believe in God.) You owe it to yourself to check this out.

P.S. #2 is not a joke, but it is hysterically funny if you have a half a brain.

Donna Druchunas is a freelance technical writer and editor and a knitwear designer. When she's not working, she blogs, studies Lithuanian, reads science and sci-fi books, mouths off on atheist forums, and checks her email every three minutes. (She does that when she's working, too.) Although she loves to chat, she can't keep an IM program open or she'd never get anything else done.

  1. Wow, that chick tract makes so much more sense than that silly science stuff.

    Now I know why those christians think they're so much smarter than I am;

    They are!!

    I've been converted.

    Thank you Skepchick blog for opening my eyes.

  2. My favourite part is this: "Because of sin, the Lord destroyed the earth by water. But the next time…IT WILL BE BY FIRE"

    No scare tactics at all for the little kids made to read this crap.

    I also thought that a comet was a small meteor mostly composed of ice. The small, fluffy cousin of the extinction causing ball of rock from science fiction and prehistory.

    Anyway the thing that bugs me about the very idea of the Evolution vs Creationist debate is that there is a debate at all. Evolution being an established and well respected theory to explain how species came to exist and Creationism being the scientific equivalent of a pop up book.

  3. Hoverfrog, I almost missed that comet-bit.

    This thing is so wrong it raises (lowers?) my impression of fundie stupidity to all new levels.

    The shoehorning going on is making the entire story just ripping at the seams. One can only hope that anyone who keeps looking at it too long will see the whole ugly truth just burst out and spill all over the place …

  4. Yumm…dinosaur chops….

    D'ya think J.T. Chick could intend all that ironically? Maybe he's some kind of comic performance artist.

    If I were a Christian, I'd definitely suspect him of being a double agent, working for the Other Side by making Christianity seem ridiculous.

  5. Oh boy! -the frame where the teacher lectures with a raised and clenched fist- WOW. I love chick tracts. Its been a while. but man, the last few frames are always blah blah have you heard christ is lord blah blah blah damnation blah blah. Glad to see these folks are immersing themselves in current deabtes. I can't wait for the Sin of Stemcells tract!

  6. Hmm. Leave it to Chick tracks to point out another Biblical Contridiction:

    Phil 2:10-11 -> 'Everyone … will bow down before Jesus' so everyone's saved right. — few thought I'd have to do something :)_

    Is it Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy that the dino is reminding me of — in it is a creature so stupid that it thinks if it can't see you, you can't see him.
