Creationist propaganda can be both funny and sad. Especially when it is aimed at children. Just for funzies I thought I’d post just a few examples of the kind of absurd nonsense creationists put out there in a desperate attempt to indoctrinate kids against the evils of “Darwinists”. The good news is they do a really shitty job of it.
Harun Yahya is an Islamic creationist website with all kinds of wacky nonsense. I particularly enjoyed the children’s story of Charles Darwin & his Magic Barrel, which proposes the idea that Darwin thought all life came from a barrel or something. Seems like a pretty easy strawman to refute. So why did they need 70 pages to do it in? What kid is going to read 70 goddamn pages of this crap? Hell, I fell asleep after three.
(Sister sites include the disturbing, http://www.truthsforkids.com/ and http://www.for-children.com/evolution01.html <–This one has cute pictures of kittens & ducklings next to the words, “Evolution is a lie!” Subtle.)
Here is a link to a creationist dinosaur quiz for kids. I failed it. And if you’re a thinking person you should too.
Amongst this website’s many tacky rotating gifs is what appears to be a triceratops on a leash being led by a caveman. There are many creationist activities for kids including crossword puzzles & coloring pages with lots of depictions of cavemen petting dinosaurs to ensure your dumbed down child never gets into college.
Of course Answers in Genesis has a plethora of creationist propaganda for the kiddies. For just $18.99 you can purchase douchebag creationist extraordinaire, Ken Ham’s D Is For Dinosaur book & DVD set or Dinosaurs of Eden. “Young children will learn the true history of the world from creation to Christ to the coming Judgment.” The coming Judgement. Let me stress this is targeted at 2-7 year olds. Yes, what could go wrong with reading a story about the end of the world to a small child at bedtime?
Kids for Truth is a pretty slick interactive website built for brainwashing. It includes many dynamations like this one in which they have the balls to declare, “Creationism is supported much better by the scientific evidence than evolution.” And you’re just a kid, so you’ll believe it, right? Of course you will…now go play with your Experience the Plagues coloring book.
Found this one on the “Kid Explorers” section of Christiananswers.net, it’s called Kids, what to do if your teacher is an evolutionist. Better title: The Fast Track to Bringing the Shame of Dover, PA to Your Town.
Oh Christ, there’s SO MANY MORE…
