Like Jimmy Carter and the “Killer Rabbit”:
The year was 1979 â€“ not a great one for Jimmy Carter. There was an Energy Crisis and a Crisis of Confidence. And a lesser-known Crisis involving swamp rabbits. From The New York Times: â€œA â€˜killer rabbitâ€™ penetrated Secret Service security and attacked President Carter on a recent trip to Plains, Ga., according to White House staff members who said that the President beat back the animal with a canoe paddle.â€
Carter backed off the whole â€œbeat the animal with a paddleâ€ part, explaining that he merely splashed water on the (killer) creature. He ordered a print of the photo, and later an enlargement, to prove his killer rabbit story. â€œIt just played up the Carter flake factor,â€ Carter biographer Douglas Brinkley recalled. â€œI mean, he had to deal with Russia and the Ayatollah and here he was supposedly fighting off a rabbit.”
I’m pretty sure this is satire.
Schmoo sent in this great link from Objective Ministries last week on Project Pterosaur:
The goal of Project Pterosaur is to mount an expedition to locate and bring back to the United States living specimens of pterosaurs or their fertile eggs, which will be displayed in a Pterosaur Rookery that will be the center piece of the planned Fellowship Creation Science Museum and Research Institute (FCSMRI). Furthermore, the rookery facility will establish a breeding colony of pterosaurs in order to produce specimens that could then be put on display by other regional institutions or church groups.
By doing all this, we hope to accomplish three goals:
1. Support Creation Theory by showing the incorrectness of the philosophy of Evolutionism.
2. Educate the population about Creation Science.
3. Create excitement about Creation and the Bible in the public.
