Pastor Brad Shockley told viewers of the Let The Bible Speak television program over the weekend that the Bible proves that dinosaurs — and dragons — lived on the Earth at the same time as humans.
On Sunday’s broadcast of Let The Bible Speak, Shockley lamented that the creationist view on dinosaurs was “rarely credited” by the media.
“We often have a difficult time convincing others this is the proper explanation,” Shockley said. “The creationist accepts the teaching of Genesis and teaches that dinosaurs were created on day 5 [and] day 6.”
The pastor noted that humans were also created on day 6 and “shared this world with the dinosaurs” and “all of these events took place approximately 6,000 years ago.”
According to Shockley, schools were using dinosaurs to “indoctrinate” children with lessons about science and evolution.
“Realizing mom and dad couldn’t not defend their religious beliefs, they ignorantly stumble into believing the theories of evolution and abandon their faith,” he insisted. “Evolutionary doctrine on dinosaurs denies the Bible, creation, the existence of God and, by default, ultimately denies Jesus Christ is the son of God and our redeemer.”
Shockley admitted that the word dinosaur had never been referenced in scripture, but he pointed to the Book of Job as evidence that dinosaurs walked the Earth with man.
In fact, Shockley argued that one creature described in Job was a fire-breathing dinosaur or “dragon.”
“The truth is, dinosaurs should be used as the poster child for creationism,” he concluded. “And we have no problem harmonizing our faith with the Bible explanation of dinosaurs.”

‘I’m a nurse, what are you?’: Tennessee lawmaker humiliates anti-choice activists in brutal public grilling
Anti-choice activists in Tennessee were unprepared for the grilling they got from a Democratic Party lawmaker when making the case for a bill that would outlaw abortion before many women knew they were pregnant.
One of the speakers in favor of the fetal heartbeat bill was Baptist Pastor Randy Davis, who was questioned by state Sen. Katrina Robinson (D-Memphis).
"How many women executive pastors do you have in your convention?" Robinson asked Davis. "Or senior pastors."
"None," Davis replied.
"So is it the same ideology that restricts access to women being able to lead a congregation that leads you all to support women not being able to make a medical decision about their body?" Robinson asked.
Trump unlikely to ask Democrats for help with recession, says analyst: ‘I’d also like a unicorn for my birthday’
On Saturday, The New York Times examined what it might look like if President Donald Trump has to deal with a recession in 2020.
One of the grim takeaways was that Trump would likely be incapable of digging America out of the hole he had created — because he would be unable to overcome political rivalries to do so.
"You could get a widespread fiscal response to a recession," said Harvard Kennedy School senior fellow Megan Greene. "That would be really nice, but I'd also like a unicorn for my birthday."
Log Cabin Republican burned to the ground on live TV for ‘idiotic’ op-ed defending Trump on LGBTQ issues
On Saturday's edition of "AM Joy," former Senate aide Jimmy Williams clashed with Log Cabin Republicans spokesman Charles Moran over his Washington Post op-ed hailing President Donald Trump for supposedly taking "bold actions that benefit the LGBTQ community."
"Since Trump became president, he's done, established, promulgated rules, or met with virulently homophobic leaders in the White House 123 times. Not 100 times, not 23 times, 123 times," said Williams. "In fact, yesterday, the Trump Department of Justice sent an amicus brief to the Supreme Court of the United States saying transgendered Americans don't have the right to not be discriminated against in the workplace. They did that yesterday! I am glad President Trump is trying to decriminalize gender hate in the United States. I cannot go and adopt a child in South Carolina, where I currently am as we speak, because the president of the United States granted a waiver to South Carolina back in January of this year saying that adoption agencies in the state can say no to gay people trying to adopt."
