And christians laugh at scientologists?
Many people think dinosaurs were all huge animals that could peer over the tops of tall trees. But many dinosaurs were small. Some were about the size of young chickens, and some (like Mussaurus) were not much bigger than the dinosaur tooth pictured at right.
Obviously Noah wasn’t going to stuff a pair of 30-meter high dinosaurs in the Ark, even though Noah’s Ark was huge. So what did he do?
Small dinosaurs would fit on the Ark easily. And remember that even the largest adult dinosaurs started their lives as small babies.
In the late 1970s, skeletons and eggs of tiny juvenile Mussaurus dinosaurs were found in Patagonia in southern Argentina. Mussaurus means â€œmouse reptileâ€, and the name is apt because the best-preserved Mussaurus skeleton is so small it fits comfortably in a human hand.
New Scientist of 6 December, 2000 announced the discovery of fossils of the smallest known adult dinosaur. These â€œmicroraptorsâ€ were only 39 centimeters (15 inches) long â€” 24 centimeters (9Â½ inches) of which were its tail.
We don’t know how many species of dinosaur God sent to Noah to take on the Ark. If the largest types were included, they were probably taken when they were still youngish but able to mate. Many animals can mate long before they are fully grown.

Kenneth Miller brilliantly goes over some recent findings that strongly support the theory of evolution and common ancestry.
I can’t tell the difference between religious nuttery and satire so you’re on your own in judging if this is real:
Hello Concerned Christians. Our organization is revealing the evil faces behind our children’s beloved CARTOONS. Often as parents, we trust that our children are being exposed to innocent programming when it comes in the form or animation- DON’T BE FOOLED. There are many examples of the evil one at work on our TV’s. Join our organization in the Crusade against cartoons that compromise our society’s moral fiber.
Although this almost has to be satire….. right? Can I get an Amen?
Susanna, a concerned Christian, recently wrote into Christians Against Cartoons with the following question:
Hi there – maybe you can help me. My Christian neighbor says that Hello Kitty isn’t good for her daughter’s spirit. I’ve searched the Internet to find out why. Can you tell me why or post on your site? Thank you.
Well Susanna, I would really like to thank you for asking this for allowing your child to accumulate a menagerie of Hello Kitty dolls is akin to when the Hebrews, after having just been led out of their bondage in Egypt by Moses, decided to mimic their former Egyptian slave masters and worship a calf cast from purest gold! As it says in Deuteronomy 9:16: â€œAnd I looked, and behold, you had sinned against the Lord your God–had made for yourselves a molded calf! You had turned aside quickly from the way which the Lord had commanded you.â€
It is by no mere coincidence that Hello Kitty herself resembles the cat-headed Sekhmet, the Egyptian sun goddess of destruction! There are also strong resemblances between Hello Kitty and the Lower Nile love goddess Bast. Often cats and cat idols were entombed in the burial chambers of the Pharaohs for the cat had a deep mystical significance to these pagan slave drivers.
Permitting your child to lie in a bed covered in Hello Kitty dolls, you are allowing her to lie in a mock Egyptian burial chamber! This seemingly harmless fascination with these dolls can lead your child down the path of the occult. The so-called â€œgothâ€ teens who paint their faces to resemble corpses and worship death are also often seen with Hello Kitty memorabilia and stickers incongruously affixed to their usually black attire. This is because these poor, misguided youngsters who have given their eternal souls over to the darkness, know the masked meaning of these cuddly idols. The Hello Kitty, the ChocoCat, The Badtz Maru are just sugar coated stand-ins for Sekhmet, the Anubis and Ra. These are the same gods that The Lord cast down into the sulfur pit of hell and made into demons! Their power, which allowed Ramses to turn his staff into a serpent, cannot be underestimated today.
