Creation Dragons, paleoreligiology & Altoona

LOL This is a good one:

You can buy it over at Headline Shirts.

The description of the shirt goes like this:

"Archaeologists with the group Creationists in Labcoats (CIL) said they have discovered caveman drawings in the remote town of Altoona, Kansas that confirm the coexistence of humans and dinosaurs some 6,000 years ago. What's more, they said the drawings prove that dinosaurs marched two-by-two, along with all the other animals, onto Noah's Ark.

"This discovery shatters more than a century's worth of so called scientific evidence," said expedition leader, Samuel Featherstone, who is a professor of paleoreligiology at CIL. "Dinosaurs - or 'Creation Dragons,' as they will henceforth be known - did not predate humans by some 200 million years. Rather, they walked with Adam and Eve and may have even had a hand in Jesus' crucifixion."

The news has forced scholars to completely rethink the size of Noah's Ark, which is now estimated to have been roughly the size of Alaska"

Thanks to Tom H. for the heads up.

A sauropod might have worked better, even big theropods weren't that big compared to giraffes.

I think it is just meant to be funny.

i just wanted to clarify rebecca, that quote from our budding paleoreligiologist is fake yes.

otherwise this would be too much fun to use. especially the bit about dinosaurs having a hand in the crucifixion...

I am not 100% positive, but I would guess the entire thing if a joke. Even if it is real, its still a joke.
