Dinosaurs Are Ruining Children

Mumsnet is an online magazine, blog, and discussion zone for parents of children in varying ages.  Mumsnet is available through Google Newstand if you'd like to add it to your reading list.  Recently a Mumsnet user CADministry posted in their discussion section regarding dinosaurs. By the way CAD stands for Christians Against Dinosaurs. Here's what CADministry had to say:

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

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

Aside from the educational aspect, dinosaurs are 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 dinosaurs), became bestially-minded and ran around the classroom roaring and pretending to be a dinosaur. 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 dinosaurs is suitable for children, from their total lack of family values through to their non-existence from any serious scientific point of view.

Recently my sister foolishly gave my two youngest some dinosaurs toys for Christmas. After telling her to get out of my house I burnt the dinosaurs. My children were delighted because they know that dinosaurs are 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 dinosaurs 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 dinosaur myth. Hope to see you there! :-)

I'm not making this up, and she's quite serious.  They truly have a Facebook page and you can find it here.  They also have a Christian's Against Dinosaurs Official Website. Now, upon reading this you may find it to be a joke, but I assure you that it is not. I initially thought that this had to be a joke as well due to the wording of the initial post plus a few of the following replies, but as you dig deeper into the discussion thread, you realize that CADministry and Christians Against Dinosaurs is a real thing. If you'd like to read the entire thread, here's a link. 

This discussion spurred over 1000 replies before being shut down for reply by Mumsnet admins. If you'd like the cliffsnotes version of the thread, check that out here. The CAD has reportedly filed numerous complaints with UK schools regarding dinosaurs being taught in schools.  I'm not arguing for or against the religion of Christianity, but I am arguing for science and for the poor T-Rex who now may not be able to participate in UK schools in addition to all the other things he cannot do!

If you're for T-Rex rights, I'd suggest a read on this new movement.  Hopefully, it doesn't catch much fuel.  Needs more fuel for your dino loving fire? Check out A2-D2's blog about a new theory on dinosaur extinction! Until next time....
