Dinosaurs Against Christians

If you don't know what this is about, check out the Mumsnet thread currently doing the rounds on social media. 

Personally, when you are faced with the choice of the evidence of dinosaurs or the belief of sky wizards, I will take the dinosaurs EVERY TIME. 

So here is my take on the thread, feel free to comment in the light-hearted spirit in which it is intended. 

DAG Ministry.                         9/02/15

I'm really concerned about God 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 God before the 1800s, when they were invented by curio-hungry Victorians?

Charles Darwin's later theory of evolution entirely disproved God , yet the God lie was twisted and adapted to try to make it fit. Any proper look at the facts will reveal that God simply never existed.

Aside from the educational aspect, god is a very bad example for children. At my children's school, several children were left in tears after one of their classmates (who had evidently been exposed to God), became Godly-minded and ran around the classroom roaring and pretending to be God. 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 traumatised by this horrible display.

Nothing about God is suitable for children, from his total lack of family values through to his non-existence from any serious scientific point of view.

Recently my sister foolishly gave my two youngest some God toys for Christmas. After telling her to get out of my house I burnt the toys . My children were delighted because they know that God is evil. I am fortunate that my family has been very supportive, and has disowned my children's former aunt.

Please, do what you can to get God taken off the curriculum. Our school has been recently presented with a 214-signature petition, and following that and our recent protest the headmaster has said that he will take it the governors. We are lucky that he is so sympathetic to our cause, but I fear that others may not be.

If you would like to lend your support to our campaign, we have a Facebook group where we spread facts and research about the God myth. Hope to see you there! :-)




  1. I read the thread on Mumsnet with a look of bemusement on my face. Surely, I thought, this is a piss take. But alas, it appears to be SO serious that 1500 people are members of an associated Facebook group. These Christians Against Dinosaurs don't believe in dinosaurs because they aren't satisfied with the evidence behind the creatures existence. God, on the other hand, logged into Facebook just yesterday.

  2. I thought it was a piss take too but it turns out there are just some total plonkers around. Dinosaurs forever!!!

  3. You can't see the contents of the Facebook group unless you join it, as it's a closed group, so I suspect this is the reason that a large number of it's members actually hit the "join" button. I'm still pretty satisfied that whilst, yeah, there are creationists who deny the possible existence of dinosaurs, the original post on Mumsnet (which was the user's first and only post) was a piss take. Someone did once claim that fossils and other evidence of dinosaur-ness were put on the planet by God, to test us, and to see who was a "true" Christian (the one's who'd still believe the "truth" regardless of overwhelming evidence) - imagine if that's true. We're all doomed to eternal hell fire.

  4. I didn't read all of the comments in the thread but I'm glad someone raised the point of pirates though - this is something that genuinely bothers me. My 4 year old has been invited to countless "Pirate Parties" - you can buy pirate clothes, bedding, toys etc. for kids - there are pirate themed TV shows aimed at young children, and fun bedtime books with exclusively piratey characters. It's like we are all forgetting that pirates (both historically and in the present day) are some of the oldest forms of "terrorists" going, their very existence is pretty much hinged on violence, theft, rape and murder... but YAY, pirate costumes. It's weird right? I appreciate that the pirates offered to kids are fictional fun characters far removed from ACTUAL pirates, but it's like making "cheerful" ISIS dolls for kiddies and being like "oh but these are child-friendly brutal fundamentalists - they're not ACTUALLY like the real ISIS, just based on them, yay." #DownWithPugwash

  5. I laughed so hard at this when I read it, I had tears. I cannot believe this woman if for real!


Due to increased spam comments I am now having to moderate the comments I receive. I will do my best to get them approved quickly so please, carry on commenting as every time you comment a kitten smiles.
