The BBC does creationism …

Methinks the BBC is just slightly sceptical of creationism:

I quote:

Though the Bible does not mention them directly, Ken Ham thinks there is no reason to suppose that dinosaurs were not still around at the time of the flood.

Indeed, he speculates that two of each may have been taken aboard the Ark (newly hatched dinosaurs are quite small so fitting them in would not have been a problem).”

I have a brilliant mental image of Martin Redfern (the BBC reporter) holding back the fits of laughter whilst writing those beautifully crafted paragraphs. I can also imagine the thinly veiled sarcasm that would have been employed whilst visiting the creationist museum.

And what about the animals from other continents? Did Noah sail to Australia to drop off the kangaroos?

No, the flood waters lubricated a process called runaway subduction in which the continents subsequently drifted apart at a sprint!”

Dear me, you’ll get Creationist “scientits” (misspell intentional) developing “flood generators” so we can do away with jumbo jets and use “sprinting” continents instead.

Beam me up, Scotty. There’s no intelligent life down here.
