Dinosaurs, Camels and Bears, Oh My!

The animals went in two by two… A model of Noah’s Ark on display at a UK zoo has dinosaurs happily boarding the ark between the polar bears and camels. Noah dolls and other biblical tat are for sale in its gift shop. Sounds like something out of a Monty Python sketch, doesn’t it? Alas, it is not.

Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm near Bristol in the UK, has a distinctly Christian theme and openly discredits science in favor of creationism on its page, Evolution: A Theory Under Pressure.

The Facebook group Sink the Ark protests the zoo on the grounds that it markets religion to children and schools. The group page includes a collection of photographs. Among the pictures is a photo of a happy looking Noah for sale in the gift shop. Unfortunately, some of the pictures (including the one of the Noah’s Ark model) are no longer available due to a Facebook account closure. This blog will post a link to them when they reappear which they undoubtedly will at some point..

One can only imagine the look on Noah’s face if he saw two Stegosauruses walking up the plank especially alongside the camels and polar bears.

    I feel compelled to ask. If there were meat-eating dinosaurs on the ark, how come we still have cows…?

    Fortunately, two bacteria that are only pathogenic to dinosaurs got on board the ark. Bacteria multiply by binary fission so enough bacteria replicated over a short time and wiped out the dinosaurs before they got to the cows. Therefore, we have a lot of cows and a lot of bullshit today.

    He should have left them behind with the unicorns; dinosaurs would be easier to kill than constantly evolving bacteria.
