At least that is what should be inscribed at the entrance to the supposed Ark Encounter theme park which apparently will include Dragons and Unicorns.
The biblical unicorn was a real animal, not an imaginary creature. … The absence of a unicorn in the modern world should not cause us to doubt its past existence. (Think of the dodo bird. It does not exist today, but we do not doubt that it existed in the past.). … To think of the biblical unicorn as a fantasy animal is to demean God’s Word, which is true in every detail.
First of all, God’s ‘word’ is complete and utter unicorn faeces. Actually I had best say horse faeces since we actually have evidence of the existence of horses. The Bible is a hapless mix and match of incoherent and bumbling accounts of events that are largely discredited through archaeological and historical evidence. It’s also full of factual errors and claims that are incompatible with the laws of nature.
Secondly, the reason that we do not doubt the existence of the now extinct Dodo is because we have contemporary accounts of it’s existence along with many extensive accounts of it from various independent sources and we also have fossil remains of them. That means there is more than sufficient objective evidence for the existence of the Dodo.
Unicorns on the other hand exist only in myth. There is no extensive contemporaneous accounting of unicorns, where they originated from, their mating habits, their natural habitat or anything that would lead us to believe that they ever existed anywhere but in the minds of ancient man. The absence of evidence in the modern world for the existence of unicorns is what leads us to discount their existence.
All that being said, none of this idiocy is to be unexpected from people who believe that the entire universe is less than 10,000 years old and that all of the animals present on the planet 4000 years ago could have been contained within a wooden structure built by a small group of humans within a small fraction of a single human lifetime.
