There Be Dragons Here…

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.

    These people making such utter fools of themselves can only be a good thing. They will always be able to gather some stupid and poorly educated people around them but surely the more ridiculous they become, the smaller the sample of people dim enough to side with them wil be also.

    I’m not sure but I think that belief in the presence of dragons and unicorns in the Bible may be due to the irrational devotion to the King James version. I think that when it comes to words for mythical creatures, translation is just about impossible and all we can really have is a language expert’s best guess.

    • Hmm… I hadn’t actually thought about that in light of the King James edition, but now that you mention it it doesn’t seem to give a starting point for the whole thing. I agree that they seem to be doing our work for us, but it just seems to grate a lot that the people they’ve got hooked on their bulls**t will believe whatever else they throw at them, even this dragons and unicorns stuff and it’s both infuriating and depressing.
