GQJock> there is a concerted effort to lie to people and tell them that Evolution is not fact
I am still flabergasted that in liberal Ann Arbor, in the mid-1970s - just after the city became the first jurisdiction to elect an openly gay politician - Mr. Cox
(a science teacher) tought us that Evolution was no longer supported.
GQJock> In the 80's they came up with the complete factually deficient pseudo-science called intelligent design
Excellent article debunking "ID" with a title particularly suited for the gay community:
THE CASE AGAINST INTELLIGENT DESIGN [9.1.2005]The Faith That Dare Not Speak Its Name

While Genesis does tell us that the great sea monsters (and sea life) were created before life on land (supportive of evolution (: ), it makes no mention of great land monsters. It doesn't even lament that Noah couldn't fit them on the Ark and that they all drowned.
It seems that not only do some consider the Flintstones a documentary, they don't know that we've only known for a few hundred years that dinosaurs existed (previously in Europe it was thought that the large bones occasionally discovered were from "giants". In China they were identified as dragons, which I suppose is somewhat correct but I suspect they were seen as rare magical creatures rather than prevalent a long time ago.) The point being that there is no human memory of dinosaurs, not even in cave paintings, and that just might be due to the fact that they were long gone before "Adam", or even Lucy.
