Now we know the real reason why the T-Rex had huge teeth.

I was reading my New Humanist magazine and came across a very worrying article.  In Kentucky, there is a Creation 'museum'.  As well as many other ridiculous claims, visitors are told that there were no predators in the garden of Eden; 'the T-Rex had such big teeth so he could open coconuts'.  It saddens me greatly.  Has anyone been to this 'museum'.

Hahahahahaha! That's pretty

Hahahahahaha! That's pretty fucking irrational! No, never even heard of it, but sounds a lot like asshat Kent Hovind's one in Pensacola, Fla.

I thought the T-Rex had

I thought the T-Rex had such big teeth so he could eat all the Christians.

Sigh.  My clever level is low today.

Yeah, I saw that

Yeah, I saw that somewhere.  It's one of those stupid Creationist museums.  Sure.  T-Rex ate coconuts. Smiling

(And they wonder why we can't take them seriously.)

No, no, no, NO! T-rex had

No, no, no, NO!

T-rex had big teeth to tear the roofs off suv's such as the Ford Explorers used in Jurassic Park. Duh!

Look how small a coconut is

Look how small a coconut is compared to a T-Rex! Imagine how many fucking coconuts they'd have to eat! And how would they separate the inside from the shell? Never mind... Anyone who actually believes that kind of shit is either fucking insane or sofa king we tar did!

Not that it matters, but how would they explain the teeth of GiganatosaurusGiganatosaurus was a larger-than-T. Rex theropod dinosaur with long, serrated teeth.  These teeth were made to be easily lost and replaced and would not cut through bone.  Instead, it is theorized that Giganatosaurus preyed upon sauropods.  Their teeth were designed to cut through meat and soft tissue, not bone.

So why did sabertooth tigers

So why did sabertooth tigers have such long k9's?  So they could puncture jars of peanutbutter?

This strikes me as

This strikes me as particularly ironic, as three average T-Rex teeth are about as large as a coconut. Suggesting that's why it had big teeth is equivalent to hitting a fly with a sledge hammer. Some of their teeth are 9 inches long.

I just wasted the last ten minutes of my life looking at this site. I can't believe this exists. This has to be the scariest thing I have ever seen in my life. Seriously, shit is going down in this country soon. These people are completely off their fucking rocker. I can't believe that they believe this shit. This just isn't a small cult of followers, were talking about a significant voting base in this country.

Opening soon in Arkansas is The holocaust never happened mueseum.

WEll that explains

Why Triceratops had those protective horns and body armor?

 

I guess to protect him from coconuts falling from the gentle T-rex's mouth.

That may be. But remember, gravity is just a theory, it's really intelligent falling!

What the heck are you talking about?  Everyone knows it's actually the flying spaghetti monster holding us down with his noodly appendage.  That's why mankind is growing, the more people there are the tougher it becomes for him to keep us from floating away, the less pressure he can exert on all of us, so the taller we get.  Migits are his truly loved people, they feel his noodly appendage stronger than the rest of us.

You fool! Coconuts were the size of Brontosauruses in those days! Thanks to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, however, they went disordered and started getting smaller. In fact, I have a graph that shows that the average coconut size went down 5213807894% since 1963, when prayer was taken out of schools. You can see it in my newest video. Now, repent, because if you're right and I'm wrong, then we're worm food, no problem. If I'm right and you're wrong, however, I'm going to heaven, and you're going to hell. So, repent and give me money and do what I say, OK?

*snickers* That ought to convince them....
