One of my friends in high school had a grandmother that was all into the fundamentalism and creationism. One year for christmas, she got her grandkids a creationist children's book. Among the many hilarious claims in it was that Tyrannosaurus Rex didn't eat every human being on the face of the planet because he used his giant, pointy teeth to crack open and eat nuts. That's right, a creature that weighed several tons maintained its metabolism by eating nuts.

Plants are easy; bite the leaves, pull them off the plant, and sit there and chew with broad, flat teeth. T-rex, well... take the two biggest knives you have in your kitchen drawer, take a walnut, and see how long and how much energy you need to use to get said walnut open using only a pincher movement.

Pointy teeth are obviously ill suited for crushing open a nut. Ripping and tearing flesh, "on-the-hoof" or otherwise, on the other hand....

And zinc, where do you live that there are no fundies?

Zinc is, I believe, another Brit. We have fundies, but we also have the State Hospital where we lock up people who overstep the mark of credulity by too much. Right now, the Brits are getting the thin edge of the fundie wedge (I was in the States a few years back - I've seen the thick edge of said wedge, and it's none too attractive). I hope we can keep it that way.

As we speak (write) a pack of overweight xtians are entering the bar and grill. No it's not attractive at all.

Warlord of Elephants? Just a thought.

I don't matter to the Christian God and I'm yet (touch wood) to be shot by a teenager from the American South so I don't really buy it.

What the advert says to me me is that the Christians at Answers in Genesis are the types of people who need religion to stop them going out and killing people (especially those that are different) and I don't really give much credence to the opinions of that sort of person.
Our Flyer,
Who drink in heaven,
FSM be thy name,
Thy ketchup come,
Thy sauce be done,
On earth as it's served in heaven.
Give us this day our garlic bread,
And forgive over cooked Tagliatelle,
As we forgive those who serve it to us.
And lead us not into takeaways,
Who deliver pizzas so evil.
For thine is the pasta, al dente cooked spaghetti.
For breakfast and dinner,
RAmen
