AIG Responds to the Dinosaur Quiz
by Noah Lugeons
I’d start by asking if you’d seen the dinosaur quiz yet… But you’ve seen the dinosaur quiz, right? It’s been everywhere the last few days. I didn’t find it all that surprising, as I’m quite familiar with what “Answers in Genesis” is teaching children, but judging by the buzz this quiz got, I’m in the minority there.
For the 3 people and the spam-bot who haven’t seen it yet, it’s this ridiculous shit:
At first people couldn’t decide if it was a parody or not, but eventually the name of the school popped up, the facts were verified and yes, this is precisely the kind of shit that AIG promotes in religious schools.
And now, of course, AIG is crying foul. They’re weeping themselves to sleep about how mean the atheists have been about it. After all, what’s wrong with pushing demonstrably false bullshit on children under the guise of science, thus ensuring that they have no chance in hell of succeeding in any intellectual field after graduation? What’s wrong with arming children with ignorance and finishing a test by making sure they know exactly how to pass their ignorance on and reinforce it? What’s wrong with lying? It’s not like there’s a commandment against it or anything.
So on his website, Ken Ham is pissing and moaning about it. He’s upset because atheists are getting so aggressive. He even has a list of “Evidence” that supports the claim that atheists are increasingly “intolerant”:
How Are Atheists Becoming More Aggressive in America?
Billboards promoting atheism and attacking Christianity have popped up across the country.
The American Humanist Association has launched a special website for children to indoctrinate them in atheism.
An atheist rally in Washington DC last year had a special promotion to encourage kids to attend their atheist camps.
Atheists have been increasingly using terms like “child abuse” to describe the efforts of Christians who seek to teach their children about creation, heaven, and hell.
Many atheists claim that children belong to the community, not to their parents.
Atheists have actively opposed any effort in public schools to even question a belief of evolution or suggest there are any problems with it.
Heath is on his way over to record and I’ve gotta get prepped, so I’ll trust the comments section to provide the editorial on these, but I just wanted to hop on really quick and let everyone know that they’ve noticed. Keep up the good work.
