Video from the Christians Against Dinosaurs web site. Yes, seriously.
A woman who posted an anti-dinosaur rant on social media said she wants to see the U.S. school system stop teaching children about dinosaurs. She, and a group she’s part of, don’t think they ever existed and believe teaching about them is harming kids.
Dinosaurs makes kids “bestiality-minded”
The mom, who identifies herself as CADministry, posted a strongly worded diatribe about dinosaurs and the harm they do children, her kids included, on a site called mumsnet.com. It’s not only been viewed by people in a number of countries, it’s also been the brunt of jokes.
You decide if it’s deserving of mockery:
“I’m really concerned about dinosaurs,” CADministry began. “And I think something needs to be done. The science behind them is pretty flimsy, and I for one do not want my children being taught lies. Did you know that nobody had even heard of dinosaurs before the 1800s, when they were invented by curio-hungry Victorians?
“Aside from the educational aspect, dinosaurs are a very bad example for children,” she continued. “My children’s school, several children were left in tears after one of their classmates (who had evidently been exposed to dinosaurs), became bestially-minded and ran around the classroom roaring and pretending to be a dinosaur. Then he bit three children on the face. One poor girl has been left with a severely dented nose and the whole class was left traumatized by this horrible display.”
Dinosaurs and family values
CADministry also noted, and this surely rankles her a great deal, as well it should, that dinosaurs have a “total lack of family values.” Not something that has been brought to mind previous and surely a point that everyone must now consider seriously.
ABC News 13 reports the woman is part of a 4,000 strong group that goes by the title ‘Christians Against Dinosaurs.’ It’s difficult to know if they are a serious group, or for that matter if CADministry means all that she writes; however, ABC News said that the group is lobbying to have dinosaurs removed from the school curriculum.
Christians tend to accept dinosaurs existed but to make them jibe with their religious beliefs, say dinosaurs and humans existed at the same time. Archeologists will tell you dinosaurs first walked the Earth 230 million years ago and became extinct 66 million years ago. A human-like creature first appeared about 2.3 million years ago, though us humans didn’t really show up until somewhere around 250,000 to 400,000 years ago.
Just don’t try telling all that to CADministry.
