New creationist theme park claims dinosaurs were actually 900-year-old lizards that ‘never stopped growing’

Published

A new creationist theme park in Lenox, Alabama is run by a Baptist preacher who believes that dinosaurs only grew so large because they were lizards who lived for 900 years and never stopped growing.

In an interview with AL.com, creationist Kent Hovind explains how his new theme park, called Dinosaur Adventure Land, will teach young people about his own scientifically illiterate theories about the existence of dinosaurs.

“It’s very simple,” he tells AL.com. “Before the flood came, in the days of Noah, the Bible says that people lived to be 900 years old. Genesis Chapter 5 tells us that. Well, I taught biology and reptiles never stop growing. What would happen to a reptile if he could live to be 900? That’s the dinosaurs. No big mystery.”

Hovind says he understands that no credible scientists actually believe that dinosaurs are just lizards who grew so big because they happened to live to the ripe old age of 900, but he’s not concerned because he believes the scientists are being used by Satan to spread doubt about the Bible.

“So the devil, I think, is using the dinosaurs to teach boys and girls the earth is millions of years old, and it’s propaganda,” he says. “It’s not true at all.”

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Donald Trump whines: ‘My life has always been a fight’

Published

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."
