If all it takes for evidence of human and dinosaurs living together is fantastical ancient artwork, creationists 10000 years from now are going to invent some really weird history from recovered Deviant Art hard drives.

Just like Jesus would have wanted, amrite?

I’d heard that some Christian Fundamentalists believe that humanity coexisted with ancient dinosaurs but I didn’t realize they thought people hunted sauropods while wearing business-casual office attire.

Evolution is a lie!

These animals didn’t evolve. They developed.

It all makes sense now.

that humans and dinosaurs lived together
But only, like as roommates, right? Not living in sin, I hope!

Not only hunted them in business casual, but were often quite successful at it.

The ones who lived in sin were shunned by the textbook writers. Like this guy who married one.

Well, on Fridays they could be more casual. I think the guy on the left is wearing jeans, so maybe that’s the day depicted.

…students who learn from these texts are taught that… nonwhites are inferior…

You know those extraordinary claims that require extraordinary evidence? Maybe just a little evidence might be nicer.

This is all as Jesus would have wanted.

If you want to be batshit crazy/religious, I’m not a huge fan, but whatever. If you want to do it with public funds, then I’m pissed.

Arrrggggh. It’s bad enough that private schools leave student educationally impoverished, but for publicly funded schools to do the same is unacceptable. Hell, it’s all unacceptable. We need Finnish-style education (with only public schools).
What does one do with these students? One could say, “These students don’t have education they need to continue on,” but that screws over the students, even if that might be what it takes for the adults in the system to wise up.

Honestly, I wouldn’t put it past them. They think dinosaurs could breath fire. (Because dragons were dinosaurs, therefore…) Jesus spoke English. Nothing is too ridiculous for them.

I was subjected to the ACE program at a private christian school in 7th and 8th grade. Everything said is true. Two years of education flushed down the toilet–and every year counts.

I’m pissed if you try to indoctrinate children whether you do it with public or private funds.
