Christian College Teaches Dinos Perished in Flood

"Their textbook is the Bible's Old Testament, and each lesson starts with a prayer." - Agence France-Press

Young Earth Creationists can't seem to get their stories straight. Many insist that there were dinosaurs on Noah's Ark (since the Bible says that every species was loaded into the hull of that very big boat, along with enough food stores to keep them from starving) while others, like biology teachers David Dewitt and Marcos Ross of Liberty University, claim that the "Great Biblical Flood" caused the total extinction of the dinos. Below is a video of Ross and Dewitt taking their students on a field trip to a natural history museum, for the purpose of mocking evolutionary theory. Then, back in the classroom, the nutty professors finish up their lectures with drawings and prayers. AFP reports that 12,000 students are currently learning this quackery at the Christian college, which will be disastrous if any of them plan to pursue a career in science. Real science textbooks don't start with, "In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep."

Vast numbers of Christian evangelicals take issue with the "science" of Ross and Dewitt. They prefer to believe that, with everything else going on, Noah's family found the time to toss scraps of flesh to velociraptors and shovel vegetable matter into the mouths of triceratops. ("Don't turn your back on that one!" "Watch out for those horns!") The website Top Ten Proofs has a compilation of "evidence" that irrefutably "proves" dinos and people co-existed: "Dinosaurs on Noah's Ark is actually a much simpler prospect than people assume. First, the fossil record confirms that very few dinosaurs were large in size. Of course, while there were a handful of dinosaurs types that grew to the large size of Tyrannosaurus Rex or Brachiosaurus, the fossil record itself confirms the overwhelming majority of dinosaurs were about the size of a sheep, approximately 3 to 5 feet in length. The fossils of the giant dinosaurs are certainly more fun to look at in the museums, but the fact is that most dinosaurs were small and only a few grew to large sizes. So, for most dinosaurs, getting on the Ark wouldn't be a problem at all, and as for the occasional larger type of dinosaur, God would have merely sent babies to Noah." And now my brain hurts.
