New creationist book features gladiator match between Noah and a tyrannosaurus rex

Published

on

Creationist Ken Ham has long drawn ridicule for his insistence that Noah brought dinosaurs with him on his ark — and now he’s promoting a book that shows the Biblical hero squaring off against a tyrannosaurus rex.

Via Patheos, Ham’s Answers in Genesis website is promoting a book titled Noah: Man of Resolve  whose cover art features Noah standing off against a tyrannosaurus as onlookers in a Colosseum cheer on their battle.

Despite featuring a giant dinosaur on its cover, the book’s description doesn’t once mention any battles between Noah and prehistoric creatures.

“After years of serving God, Noah reaches crisis of faith due to his mounting frustrations with the proliferation of sin and the apparent silence from the Creator,” the description reads in part. “Thrust into a series of perilous situations, Noah’s deepest convictions are challenged. His response will direct his course and change the world forever.”

Ham in the past has claimed that dinosaurs were not only present on Noah’s ark, but also that they fought in gladiator battles against both humans and a race of biblical giants described in Genesis.

Noah: Man of Resolve was written by authors Tim Chaffey and K. Marie Adams, and can be bought through Ham’s website for $12.99.

The Kentucky Republican said this week that he hopes to reach an agreement on rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, but he's also readying a "backup plan" in case he can't reach an agreement with Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, reported Vanity Fair.

“The first thing Sen. Schumer and I will do is see if there’s a possibility of agreement on a procedure,” McConnell said. “That failing, I would probably come back to my own members and say, ‘Okay, can 51 of us agree how we’re going to handle this?’”

Fresno Bee burns Nunes to the ground in scathing editorial

Published

on

The editorial board of the Fresno Bee has written a scathing takedown of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for his extraordinary fealty to President Donald Trump, which the editors say is harming the country.

Specifically, the editorial accuses Nunes of forsaking his oath of office as a congressman to serve as Trump's most loyal toady on the House Intelligence Committee.

"As has been true for nearly all of Trump’s first term, Nunes has relinquished his proper role as an independent representative of Congress and has instead acted like a member of the Trump 2020 re-election team," the editorial states.

Republicans blundered badly as their own impeachment expert witness wrecked their defenses of Trump: columnist

Published

on

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee pinned their hopes on George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, their sole expert witness on the panel at the hearing on Wednesday, to discredit the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump.

But as anti-Trump conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin wrote for the Washington Post, even Turley's testimony ended up damaging the GOP more than Democrats, because he undercut one of the GOP's most solid narratives in defense of the president: that trying to extort Ukraine with military aid would not be impeachable even if it was proven.
