Jeffrey Goldberg visited the Creation “Museum”, and asked the question, “Were There Dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark?”. I can answer that one.
There were no dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark, because there were no animals of any kind on Noah’s Ark.
There were no animals of any kind on Noah’s Ark, because there was no such thing as Noah’s Ark.
There was no such thing as Noah’s Ark, because there was never a global flood.
There was never a global flood because…well, there’s so much evidence against it — no geological evidence, all the species on earth did not go through such a narrow population bottleneck so recently, the story is patently a myth — that you have to deny the bulk of all scientific theories to accept it.
Don’t accept their premises. The loons at Answers in Genesis are simply making shit up as they go.
Oh, and by the way, Jeffrey Goldberg, this comment tells me your head is so far up your ass that you don’t even know what questions to ask.
My sympathies, by the way, do not lie entirely where you might think. I find atheism dismaying, for Updikean reasons (“Where was the ingenuity, the ambiguity … of saying that the universe just happened to happen and that when we’re dead we’re dead?”), and because, in the words of a former chief rabbi of Great Britain, Jonathan Sacks, it is religion, not science, that “answers three questions that every reflective person must ask. Who am I? Why am I here? How then shall I live?” Like Ken Ham, I am appalled by the idea, as expressed by Richard Dawkins, that “the universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.”
Those three questions are no more answered by religion than they are by the poems of William McGonagall … that is, badly, with no beauty and no accuracy. Personally, I find Dawkins’ observation well supported by the observation that Jeffrey Goldberg, war advocate and monstrous propagandist to the Bush administration’s mendacious pretexts for aggression that led us into a war that was immensely wasteful of lives, money, and reputation, still has a job, rather than finding himself in a prison with the other media liars.
