The "R", on pages 106 and 44, is for reasons, which the YECs have none of. What caused their extinction is discussed here on page 106. There are very major problems to this LOL idiocy found in this article YECs' Mumbo Jumbo at the Dinosaur National Monument which deals with it here. In the next stupid lesson, Children are to be told that there was probably an Ice Age that's alluded to Job 38:29, the verse which has zero to do with the actual recent Ice Age and lots to do with the rare winters that occur in the Middle East. There are in fact multiple instances of Ice Ages that occurred at certain times throughout history such as during the Paleozoic era for instance. In the next idiot exercise, children are to pretend they owned a restaurant while dinosaurs are still alive that and make up a menu that serves only Bedrock style food like Brontoburgers and Pterodactyl legs— another way to stupidly lie to the children, telling them that dinosaurs were killed off by men while hiding from them the clear truth that says such scenarios depicting humans hunting and killing dinosaurs like Apatosaurus and T.rex for food and sport only occur in science fiction.
Now the S rhyme is Stupid. The S rhyme on pages 108 and 46 is all about Behemoth, whom Ham, just like all YECs, claims the monster of Job 40:15-24 to be a dinosaur and demands it to be so, never mind the dinosaurs having neither penises, nor navels outside their bodies like mammals do (The word 'tail' in Job 40:17 is euphemism for penis.). The passage when translated correctly indicates that the monster God is revealing to Job is a monstrous, supernatural mammal, not a dinosaur. In this stupid lesson, Ham wrongfully identified the Hebrew word for Behemoth as being "great quadruped" while in fact it actually means "beast" or "dumb beast." Traditionally, Behemoth have long been identified as a hippopotamus. Actually, if you want to get technical, the word "behemoth" is most likely refers to wild animals or livestock or just the whole animal kingdom just like this page says. Note: scroll down to Day 6 section and click on the behemah 23 hyperlink to see what I'm talking about.
In this idiot exercise, Children are to be told that if some dinosaurs grow large, they, along side of humans, would have lived to be hundreds of years old as told in Genesis 5 and other verses (never mind the verses dealing with only humans). What is hidden from the children is that those verses may be based on the sexagesimal system of the base 60 which the Sumerians invented a long time ago. Here's a link to a site that explains how the passage of Genesis 5 and others like it is mistranslated.
Click on the "How old was Noah?" link to read the article.
Despite what is claimed, no one knows for sure how long dinosaurs lived. According to scientific studies involving bone growth rings, dinosaurs like Seismosaurus can lived to be roughly 100-200 years old (if they're lucky). T.rex, according to recent scientific study, can lived to be 30 years old on average and smaller dinosaurs tend to live much shorter lives as reference here,
Children are told to go to the library and look up which animal is the largest ever known to have lived on the earth which of course is the Blue whale. Yet the life span of the blue whale is about 30 years. Ham assumes that God must have put special characteristics inside dinosaurs' genes to help them lived longer. Try finding it within the growth rings of the bone. Scientists can determined the life span of a dinosaur just by looking at their growth rings in a bone just like you look into tree rings to determine its life span. Parents are to understand with the children that there are lots that we don't know about dinosaurs and we have to be very tentative on what we say about them. After all, we were not there to see them living, never mind the evidence pointing to the fact that dinosaurs did not lived many hundreds (let alone thousands) of years
This have the word "Fabrication" written all over it. This is the T rhyme on pages 110 and 48 that makes claims of dragon tales to be accounts of people encountering dinosaurs. All of those dragon myths YECs claim to be dinosaurs people saw are all nothing more than fabrications - folkloric stories distorted by creationists to fit in with their beliefs about dinosaurs living along side of man.
Not necessary a dragon tale, but is worth noting for example is The Epic poem dated back to 1000 AD that tells about Beowulf during his early years of his life. In this part he had faced off against an ogre named Grendel who hated parties and crashed them to devour party goers as he went. Beowulf fought and killed the ogre by tearing off his arm and allowed him to bleed to death. Then Beowulf went to the cave where the ogre live to battle Grendel's mother and killed her too after she killed another person she believed to be the one responsible for her son's death.
Bill Cooper stupidly and witlessly fabricate the story to make it look as if Beowulf must have killed a dinosaur such as Tyrannosaurus Rex by pulling off its arm and allow it to bleed to death instead of an ogre. Creationists, witless as ever, thinks T.rex arm is so weak that if you pull off its arm, it will bleed to death. Kent Hovind, the jailbird, is the one of the YECs who advocates such a idiotic claim not knowing of how strong, muscular, and powerful T.rex's arms really were. They are about the same length of a man's arm and may have been used to hold onto his prey while he crushes them with his sharp tooth jaws. No one knows for sure. But you can bet one thing, no one has and never will pull an arm off of a T.rex no matter how hard he/she tries. T.rex have been extinct for 65 million years, long before there were any humans around.
Then, during the later years of his life, Beowulf fought, killed a dragon, and died shortly afterwards. The dragon had terrorized the land after a servant stole its favorite gold cup, arousing its wrath. This dragon was never described as a dinosaur. It was actually a fire drake with a body that coils like a snake. Something dinosaurs totally lack. Dragons are not dinosaurs, nor are they vice versa. During ancient times, people came across fossilized remains of dinosaurs and other extinct animals and thought of them as dragons, giants, and other monsters. One time, ancient explorers came across a cave were they found skulls of prehistoric mammoths and thought they were the skulls of one eyed giants called Cyclops. Thus, the legend of the giant one-eyed cyclops came to be known. Another example is the encounter of fossil remains of Protoceratops the ancients thought they were bony remains of Griffins, monsters that were half lion, half eagle what is said to have guarded vast treasures of gold for the gods.
Today, people no longer believe that the fossils came from monsters of myth and legend after they learn about what these strange fossilized bones really were. All dragon tales are nothing more than fairy tale stories. Yet, children are to be lied to, saying to them that the dragon stories are all "true" accounts and show them that there are many legends around the world told of dragons that used to live on earth that people fought and killed as told in The Great Dinosaur Mystery and the Bible book. Parents are to ask them to give them descriptions of what dragons are like and are told that many descriptions could fit dinosaurs, which they in fact couldn't. Dinosaurs could not be dragons because they do not have bodies that resembled snakes or felines, bat wings, women's genitals, multiple heads, wolf or lion heads, just two limbs in some cases, poison or fiery breath, venom, and coiling tails. Now that's truly the real difference between a dragon and a dinosaur. Dragons have bodies made up of only snake, lizard, and feline composites while dinosaurs have bodies resembling birds in one form or another. The word "dragon" comes from the Greek word "drakon" meaning snake or serpent. Dragons are known to resemble snakes, lizards, and felines just as depicted in ancient dragon art such as what is depicted in ancient Chinese art. The dragons that seem to resemble dinosaurs are nothing more than just Hollywood-made stereotypes.
Ham claims people embellished these stories over the years, never mind such embellishments being nothing more than fabrications creationists dredged up form their heads by distorting and twisting the stories around to fit their idiot beliefs; they all 100% fail miserably to explain how come there are no dinosaur remains found mixed with human remains in the fossil record.-
Bearing False Witness
In the next idiot exercise, parents are to write a 20-word message about a sighting of a big animal. Whisper a message to one kid who then has to whisper it to the next kid and so on. This is to give an example of how in the past people have been spreading stories around through word of mouth, but that doesn't necessary mean such stories told orally over time are true events.
Then Parents are to write out a different message and have everyone read it one at a time and say that all of the stories told in the Bible are exactly what it has been told since the beginning. This teaches children to regard only written accounts as reliable out of ignorance of the fact that written accounts are as just as unreliable as oral accounts as long as no trace substantial evidence are presented that confirms such accounts, whether written or told orally, to be true.
Ham, knowing nothing about true Bible history, makes up an unfounded claim that says Adam was the first to write down parts of Genesis and Shem writes the other parts of Genesis and Moses uses them to compile the whole book. This is all unfounded and made up. According to the Wiki article about Genesis,
For much of the 20th century, academic scholarship on the origins of Genesis was dominated by the documentary hypothesis advanced by Julius Wellhausen in the late 19th century. This sees Genesis as a composite work assembled from originally independent sources: the J text, named for its use of the term YHWH (JHWH in German) as the name of God; the E text, named for its characteristic usage of the term "Elohim" for God; and the P, or Priestly source, named for its preoccupation with the Aaronid priesthood. These texts were composed independently between 950 BC and 500 BC and underwent numerous processes of redaction, emerging in their current form in around 450 BC. Several anomalous sources not traceable to any of the three major documents have been identified, notably Genesis 14 (the battle of Abraham and the "Kings of the East"), and the "Blessing of Jacob" contained in the Joseph narrative. One such work, the Book of Generations, was used by the Redactor (final editor of the Pentateuch) to provide the narrative framework for Genesis, ten occurrences of the toledot (Hebrew "generations") formula introducing ten units of the book.
For centuries, Moses had been believed to have been the author of Genesis, and Wellhausen's hypothesis was thus received by traditionally-minded Jews and Christians as an attack on one of their central beliefs. But in the first half of the 20th century the science of Biblical archaeology, developed by William F. Albright and his followers, combined with the new methods of biblical scholarship known as source criticism and tradition history, developed by Hermann Gunkel, Robert Alter and Martin Noth, seemed to demonstrate that the stories of Genesis (or, at least, the stories of the Patriarchs; the early part of Genesis ”from the Creation to the Tower of Babel” were already regarded as legendary by mainstream scholarship) were based in genuinely ancient oral tradition grounded in the material culture of the 2nd millennium BC. Thus by the middle of the 20th century it seemed that archaeology and scholarship had reconciled Wellhausen with a modified version of authorship by Moses.
This consensus was challenged in the 1970s by the publication of two books, Thomas L. Thompson's "The Historicity of the Patriarchal Narratives" (1974), and John Van Seters's "Abraham in History and Tradition" (1975), both of which pointed out that the archaeological evidence connecting the author of Genesis to the 2nd millennium BC could equally well apply to the 1st millennium, and that oral traditions were not nearly so easily recoverable as Gunkel and others had said. A third influential work, R. N. Whybray's "The Making of the Pentateuch" (1987), analysed the assumptions underlying Wellhausen's work and found them illogical and unconvincing, and William G. Dever attacked the philosophical foundations of Albrightean biblical archaeology, arguing that it was neither desirable nor possible to use the bible to interpret the archaeological record.
The theories currently being advanced can be divided into four: 1). Revisions of Wellhausen's documentary model, of which Richard Elliot Friedman's is one of the better known; 2). Fragmentary models such as that of R. N. Whybray, who sees the Torah as the product of a single author working from a multitude of small fragments rather than from large coherent source texts;, 3). The conservative position ably defended by A H Finn (The Unity of the Pentateuch), R K Harrison (Introduction To The Old Testament- Tyndale Press) and defended by scholars such as D. Kidner (IVP commentary on Genesis) and J G Wenham (Word Bible Commentary on Genesis 1-15) and 4). Supplementary models such as that advanced by John Van Seters, who sees in Genesis the gradual accretion of material over many centuries and from many hands. The 19th century dating of the final form of Genesis and the Pentateuch to c. 500-450 BC continues to be widely accepted irrespective of the model adopted, but with greater respect being made to the ancient nature of the majority of the material although a minority of scholars known as biblical minimalists argue for a date largely or entirely within the last two centuries BC.
Alongside these new approaches to the history of the text has come an increasing interest in the way the narratives tell their stories, concentrating not on the origins of Genesis but on its meaning, both for the society which produced it and for the modern day, placing "a new emphasis on the narrative's purpose to shape audiences' perceptions of the world around them and to instruct them in how to live in this world and relate to its God."
Ham asserts that God supernaturally watches over the people who copied the manuscripts as told in II Timothy 3:16 and II Peter 1:21. Ham wants people to believe that the possibility of error is greatly reduced when something is handed down in written form in comparison to the problems in things being handed down orally. Wrong. The oral accounts are exactly the same as the written accounts. Both have a possibility of error as well as the possibility of being factual. Both types of accounts must not be without proof of evidence which tell us that such events told in the stories did occur. If no evidence is found to prove a story, then the accounts whether written or told orally must be treated like any other false and fictional tale.
Ham says that even the children probably made some mistakes copying, because they are [sic] fallible (words said in all capital letters). So are creationists fallible along with their made up stories they shoehorn into the Bible which Ham falsely claims to be all perfect and supernaturally preserved by the so-called infallible creator God, never mind the conflicting verses and passages, missing text, passages that tell of atrocities and disgusting situations found within the pages, etc. Ham, in fact, really wants children to be ignorant of true Bible history and the fact that the writers of the Bible were nothing more than normal fallible mortal men, not supernaturals. Ham blatantly knows nothing of the Bible, its knowledge, its legacy, and how the Bible really did came about. He only lies and distorts the Bible for personal gain.
What The Bible Don't Explain
Despite what the U rhyme on pages 112 and 50 says, The Bible explains nothing about dinosaurs. The U rhyme also starts the salvation rhyming messages off that really makes Christians into either Atheists, Wiccans, or other cult followers. It's true! Ham's version of the salvation message is actually a dangerous setup - to set up the people for the fall and make them into God haters instead of God lovers.
First they are going to believe in every stinkin' lie Ham and other creationists preached and be lured into their web of lies. Then, when their eyes are finally opened to the truth and real evidence pointing to the opposite of what the creationists claim, they will all realized that they've been lied to by creationists all along. Dinosaurs never lived along side of man; evolution is true, Darwin was right all along, evolution did not lead people into atrocities and sexual lusts, there is such a thing as the concept of millions (billions) of years ago, creationists are all liars and the earth and the universe is truly billions of years old. If creationists are all liars, then so is God. And if creationists are all pathetic, psychotic yahoos, then so is God.
Then some, buying into the false dilemma of 'if evolution is true, the bible is false' as told by the creationists, will just walk away from the Lord and from Christianity altogether and become Atheists, while others would abandon their lying ways, repent of their sins and turned to the Lord, learn the true meaning of evolution and become advocates of both evolution and Christianity, knowing that what creationism teach is NOT of God but of the Devil and you can believe in both God, the Bible, and evolution. There's is nothing in the Bible that can stop you from it. Never is found in the Bible of what creationists like Ham teaches concerning about their beliefs in God and evolution. What Ham and other creationists teaches is all empty, groundless, worthless, and nothing but air. All these people will testify to all of this.
Jesus says in Mathew 18:6 NIV, "But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea." Looks like Ham is having the parents be potential candidates for the wearing of the millstones just by teaching children that it is ok to lie, slander, sneer, and speak evil of those who oppose their views, forcefully impose lies on others, and setting them up for their downfall.
The U rhyme deals with the myth that says the Bible clearly explains dinosaurs other than birds, which the Bible actually explains no such thing. The next Sunday School style lesson deals with thre salvation message. The children are to find obituaries from the local newspaper for a week and learn that death could come at anytime for anyone and no one is exempt from it. The children are told to be ready and be sure to be saved when they die so they can go up and meet the Lord in the sky. And maybe then, the Lord will show them that what Ham is saying all along is nothing but blatant lies and stupid falsehoods the children were lead to believe in blindly.
Blatant Lies and the Slandering of Evolutionists
The V rhyme on pages 114 and 52 claims there's no mystery behind dinosaurs for the bible teaches [sic] true history or so Ham would like to have you believe. Here the children are lead to believe that if they should read the bible everyday, they should not be lead (sic) astray by the 'evolutionists' because they (in Ham's empty mind) try to tell us the Word of the Lord is false (only creationists would make kids believe that by lying and hiding the truth about evolution and the Bible from them!) and evolution is true (and it is through evidence.) and that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago (which they really did through evidence.). This is Ham's delusional plan, to deceive, blind, use senseless scare tactics and faulty propaganda to lead children and adults alike astray, make them believe all of his lies and embrace ignorance, using Christianity, especially God and the Bible, as a pawn. Ham wants children to be ignorant of the fact that many evolutionists are Christians, who find it not a problem to believe in both the Bible to be true and to accept evolution as fact because of the scientific evidence Ham wants children to ignore and pretend to not exist.
Creationists out of sheer malice deliberately slander evolutionists and old-earthers and supporters of them, claiming them to be in the league of the Devil, no different than what the Pharisees have said about Jesus, and ignore the evidence for an ancient earth and evolution and the concept of millions (billions) of years ago, because to them, they goes up against the notion of God being the creator of everything, or so they assume, while, in fact, they are actually is doing this so that they can satisfy their craving for power and win them followers who will give them money from their pockets. What they are really doing is actually for personal gain, to horde wealth and gain power, riches, glory, and fame for themselves.
In an otherwise Sunday School exercise, children are to just simply make a bible poster that reminds them to read the bible, think about it, and memorize verses everyday.
Judgment From God
The off-the-wall W rhyme on page 116 and 54 says the Lord will judge the world again this time by fire as told in II peter 3:10. This next otherwise Sunday School lesson deals with Noah's flood that most likely have been a major local event that occurred around The Black Sea about 7,500 years ago. It swept the land and drown all of the evil men, while Noah, his family and the animals have survived. When they left the ark, Noah and his family saw a rainbow in the sky. The rainbow serve as a sign to that God has promised to never again flood the earth the way he did. According the verse in II Peter 3:10 God will judge the earth by fire. Could it be that a thermal nuclear war will erupt during the Great Tribulation that will indeed engulf the world in flames with all those nuke bombs dropping about? It could be so.
However, before the Great tribulation begins, there will be a moment of rapture where all of the Christians, both dead and alive, will be taken from earth and enter into the Heavenly realm into God's Presence at the shout from Heaven and the blast of the angelâ€˜s trumpet as told in I Thessalonians 4:16-18. However God is giving the human race plenty of time to repent and turned to the Lord for "The Day of the Lord is like a thousand years" as told in II Peter 3:8.
In the next idiot exercise, parents are to have the children write the names of all of the colors of the rainbow and to have the parents write the word rainbow in the horizontal fashion. Put the color of the rainbow beside the letter and have the kids write down a word for each letter and use all seven words to tell of some things that they been indoctrinated into believing, which is all the lies, falsehoods, and make believe scenarios Ham gives out foolishly.
The X rhyme on pages 118 and 56 implies that one day, when Christians go to Heaven, they will see that they will be no crying, no death, no pain, no sorrow, no deceiving, self-righteous demagogues like Ken Ham, no proud, power-hungry people who horde money for themselves like Ken Ham, Kent Hovind, Joyce Meyers, and Pat Robinson, no corrupt preachers who don't practice what they preach such as Ted Haggard (who's also a young earth creationist), no corrupt painters like Thomas Kinkade, and no religious mafia (especially Christian Mafia), who force people to convert "by the sword" and Christ will forever reign.
In the next idiot exercise, parents are to discuss with children to try to make a list of jobs that people won't need in Heaven when we get there like there will be no policeman, fireman, etc. and discuss what kind of famous people who got saved will we meet in Heaven.
Ham Lies About The Earth's Age
The Y rhyme on pages 120 and 58 falsely states the earth is about 6,000 years ago which means (based on the calculations of Archbishop James Usshur.) that the earth was somehow created in around 4000 BCE, which is at the very beginning of the Neolithic Age!
In this stupid lesson, children are to ignore earth's history through evidence and be told that there are many scientists in the world who don't "believe" in evolution and millions of years and are called "creation scientists" who are in fact are NOT scientists at all. They're just posing as scientists to throw people away from the real science and the real scientists, whom the so-called creation "scientists" are often green with envy of them due to their great success and service over the community when it comes to a healthy body, a clean environment, and animal conservation and making the lives of the people better than before.
Unlike real scientists, creation "scientists" don't do any research at all. Instead they make up lies, hoaxes, slander, and hypocrisies, nitpicks, mudslinging, they compete with other scientists for supremacy, and are no way qualified scientists despite what Ham wants children to believe. No way does the bible say that the earth is 6,000 years old and no way does the earth tell us that it's 6,000 years old either. In the next idiot exercise, parents are to obtain a book called Men of Science, Men of God by the late Henry Morris and in this book there are a lists of scientists Morris claims that they are creationists.
But what Morris never told anyone about is that these scientists, in most cases, lived during the time when evolution was completely UNKNOWN at that time; long, long before Darwin was born. In other cases, they are aware of evolution, but never became familiar with the evidence for it. Many more have discovered evidence, in one form or another, of the earth being far more ancient than a measly old 6000-year age. Parents are to have the students chose 6 scientists and make a "adopt a scientist" card set. Then they are to carry the cards around for 6 weeks while memorizing them. Then they are to recite them in from of their parents or teachers at the end of the week. This way children are taught to be ignorant of the real history behind the scientists and believe the claims Morris have made up about them being creationists and evolution deniers. This nixes Morris' claim.
Spreading Falsehoods around
Now, the last and final rhyme, the Z rhyme on pages 122 and 60, tells the reader that we should proselytize and impose this falsehood on others, which it's no wonder why so many people turned away from God. It is not just because of people showing them bad examples for them to follow, but it's also because they have been fed with crap like this. In this final stupid lesson, parents are to read the Great Commission in Mark 16:15 say that we should go and tell the entire world about the Good News of Jesus Christ. But NO NEWS is good news when it comes to creationism. What Ham really is teaching in his book is for us to deny history and be total idiots. No, we don't need to oppose and repent of evolution because there is nothing in evolution worth opposing and repenting of. Evolution is in no way the opposition to what the Bible teaches despite what Ham claims.
Many Christians accept evolution because of evidence supporting it and accept the teachings of the Bible because there is nothing in the Bible says anything bad about evolution and science. Ham wants parents to tell the children that they need to tell the truth (actually lie) about dinosaurs and say that we have all the answers (which they really don't) to where they came from. Ham falsely states that many people in Ham blind eyes (sic) mistakenly believes that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, and that, because this is in opposition to what God's word teaches, we can't trust the Bible, which is a blatant lie.
It's NO mistake that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago because of undeniable evidence for it. We can still trust the Bible while accepting the concept of millions and billions of years ago to be true. The only thing we must NOT accept is Ham's stupid lies and his distortions of the Bible and what God is. God is not a deity who plays favorites and sides with those who speaks falsehoods in His name, use Him as a puppet, put Him into a box, and controls Him like a robot, and enforce false teachings as if He Himself establishes them. He is Sovereign. He is the Lord of Truth who is not to be messed with, nor used for some personal gain. Ken likely knows this, but does he even care? No. He's nothing more than a compulsive liar who shows hated and contempt towards those who are Gay, Lesbian, Muslim, and all those who oppose his views and thinks evolution is wrong and he and others are right in everything they say, while the opposite is true.
In the last otherwise Sunday school exercise, kids are simply told to make a commitment letter saying that they're Christians. If they are, then they should never listen to and believe in any stupid lie people like Ham dish out of their mouths from time to time.
And there you have it! This is how the book will indoctrinate kids to be ignorant, religious snobs, slanderous liars, show contempt, hatred, and intimidate others who tell them different, and be deluded into thinking that this is what Christianity is all about, while in fact this book, VHS, (now even DVD) will teach them nothing and render them totally ignorant and could never, ever keep up with the science times of the 21st century and beyond.
