Creationist Wisdom — Example 53

TODAY, dear reader, your Curmudgeon intends to put you to the ultimate test. Do you have the courage to see your satanic Darwinism challenged? If so, then come along with us as we bring you a few excerpts from Is There Some Truth to Dragon Myths?

This startling article appears at the website of the venerable Institute for Creation Research (ICR). Brace yourself, as we present their astonishing evidence that man and dinosaurs recently coexisted. The bold font was added by us for emphasis.

The article begins by mentioning Harry Potter fantasies, and then says:

But serious researchers are seeing evidence that dragons were more than just fantastical creatures.

We’re always interested in the findings of “serious researchers.” Let’s read on:

Tales of dragons are almost universal and were incorporated into the historical background of virtually every people group on every continent. How could so many different cultures conjure up such similar details in their dragon legends, unless their ancestors actually encountered them?

Intrigued? We thought you would be. The article continues:

It would be easily explained if humans had actually seen living dinosaurs. The book of Job in the Bible records one such event. God spoke to a troubled Job, “Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee … he moveth his tail like a cedar.”4

Footnote 4 informs us:

Job 40:15, 17. The features of behemoth do not match those of alligators or hippopotamuses, though these are commonly identified in most study Bible notes.

While you’re pondering the identity of the behemoth, we’ll go on with the article:

However, if this and so many other accounts are to be taken at face value, it would jeopardize the scientific consensus that dinosaurs and humans did not live at the same time. Thus, one of the main reasons to reject these voluminous accounts of encounters with real dragons is the presupposition of a separate dinosaur age.

Yes! It’s time to shed your pesky presuppositions. Moving along:

Over a decade ago, a creation scientist wrote, “The creation model of origins makes many predictions, one of them being that evidence will be found that tells us that in the recent past, dinosaurs and man have co-existed.”

Another excerpt:

Indeed, evidence continues to fulfill this prediction.

To support that bold claim, the article cites John D. Morris, President of the Institute for Creation Research, who wrote this: The Dinosaur Next Door. Read it, and be amazed!

Today’s article concludes with this:

Whereas most of the Harry Potter world is grounded firmly in fancy, the concept that certain “strangely familiar” dragon-looking dinosaurs existed with humans has a broad foundation in history.

So there you are. Dragon legends are proof of creationism. Now go forth and teach the controversy.

    It’s odd that the serious researchers didn’t have anything to say about the fire-breathing talents of dragons. Would that have been Pyranosaurus Rex?

  2. They didn’t breathe fire until after the Fall.

    “They didn’t breathe fire until after the Fall.”

    Ah, then you must be referring to the Winter Dragon, Draco Articus.

  4. Teh stoopid – it burnz!

  5. Wow…they’re watching The Flintstones and Pete’s Dragon as if they were documentaries.

  6. James, what is a documentary but the expression of one man’s reality?

    Some realities consist of nothing but fog.

  7. You know, it’s a real possibility that dragon lore stems from people finding dinosaur bones and creating etiological stories to explain them.

    It happens in mythology all the time. In fact, a mammoth skeleton laid out like a human skeleton looks like a cyclops.

    So why aren’t they arguing for the existence of cyclopses? Oh, yeah. Wrong religion.
