Footnotes to the Book:
1. The orange dinosaur in the Flood scene shown in the intro to the GDM website and on pages 24-25 in the book is identified as Scelidosaurus according to the book's index on page 62. The image is wrong. The dinosaur is inaccurately shown to have longer hind legs, indicating that the dinosaur is a bipedal dinosaur and not the real Scelidosaurus that's a quadruped. The pseudo-dinosaur also lacks armor studs and knobs. Even the toes are arranged wrong. In reality, Scelidosaurus is covered with armored studs and has 5 toes on each front foot and 4 toes on each hind foot. Scelidosaurus meaning "limb lizard" is a plant-eating dinosaur from the early Jurassic Period 190 million years ago that measured about 10-15 feet long.

Taylor's Way of Tragically Abusing Children
2. In the teachers section of the GDM website here, we see many attempts to abuse the minds of children with lies, ignorance, and denial in public schools as well as in private schools. YEEs are determined to do what ever it takes to push their idiocy into schools and and distort the minds of children with lies and ignorance. Here Paul encourages the teachers to "teach" children about dinosaurs the YEC way with GDM books, videos, games and activities all made to delude, distort, poison, and indoctrinate children away with this toiletry. The toiletry that tells kids that it's ok to lie for God, to be ignorant, and to hate, shun, and fear the supporters of science and evolution, Christian and Non-Christian, and deny every scientific establishment and evidence out there that confirms evolution and science to be true.
Here's one example on the so-called teaching page. There's an encouragement for teachers to refrain decorating the classroom with dinosaur-only scenes that will enforce the [sic] stereotypes of what creationists called "evolutionism" such as avoiding putting up scenes that contains nothing but all dinosaurs on it or else one may be enforcing the [sic] "evolutionism's deception." In other words, teachers are not to decorate the classroom with anything that will expose the kids to the YE extremists' deception, but fill the kids eyes and ears and mind with only lies, ignorance, and propaganda.
"Evolutionism" is an ad hoc word the extremists invent to make it as if evolution is a cult religion, while in fact it's not. Instead, teachers are encourage to put up images that mixes dinosaurs with all other types of both ancient and modern animals like mammoths, lions, rabbits, smilodons, trilobites, and all others, which gives children a very false impression that at one time all animals live at the same time, which they never did, and avoid any scenes that promote any evolutionary concepts that are factual based on fossil evidence. In Taylor's eye, all must be certain that the children will not see the true deception behind Taylor's pathetic teaching, or else lose them all to reality.
Another example of teaching ignorance and intellectually abusing children is reading to them Dry bones and other Fossils and other creationist toiletry and read an evolutionary book and lie to the children, telling them how "wrong" are the evolutionary beliefs are and point out the so-called errors using the Bible (We can do the same thing with the young earth extremist beliefs. We can point out the errors of creationism using the Bible since creationists make lots of mistakes when they purposely twist twist the Bible to fit their beliefs.) and ask them "Do you feel good about what the book says? Why or why not? What does that mean? What makes you feel uncomfortable about what it says?"
Most, if not all children, will indeed feel uncomfortable having ignorance like that be taught in schools, which is what Ken Ham and his cronies always do. Ham and his cronies strongly insist that they will not try to get their lies into public schools, but time and time again they have proven themselves to be absolute liars. On their website, there is a page where children are encourage to start "Creation Clubs" in public schools and try to enforce pathetically stupid lies into public schools and see about brainwashing children into Ham's sickening s*** by hoarding literature, DVDs and other forms of crappy media and distributing them all over the school, whether the school likes it or not.
How would you feel if your child who is normally so good in science class comes home crying just because he got an F on his science test all because from now on creationist toiletry will be only taught in science class, yet in the past before, he comes home smiling and says "Look Ma! I got an A on my science quiz!”? Then you will feel just as uncomfortable and disturbed as your child knowing now that the school your child goes to is now teaching lies about science, evolution and the dinosaurs. So disturbed that you may have to take very serious action against the school board and the board of Ed, or even argue your case in court.
It's highly important to keep church and state separated and creationism completely out of schools period. That way, no one imposes religious dogma on others no matter how good the intentions are and no one gets proselytized into embracing religious beliefs none wants to embrace.
The third example encourages teachers to go on field trips to museums and avoid taking kids through audio and video areas of the museums, lest they be expose to the truth made up of too many powerful ideas so falsely called"wrong" by Taylor and prepare them for anything they will see and hear that's exactly what creationism truthfully is itself — "wrong, questionable, and based on human guesswork."
Next Taylor gives an "example" of something that should be a part of the Fundies Say The Darndest Things website. On his website, there are many fundamentalists who made such similar, yet doubtful quotes and claims they probably made up out of the blue as an attempt to give people a false “example” on how “bad” evolution is to children. Taylor claims that his indoctrinated son from then Kindergarten allegedly had nightmares about being "attacked by dinosaurs" after he went to a museum on a class field trip filled with "growling dinosaurs" and evolutionary videos. How does that give a kid nightmares?! Nearly every kid is completely fascinated with dinosaurs and never had any nightmares about them. Did the kid really had that dream, or is this something Taylor made up in an attempt to make his empty, unfounded point?
Taylor's Activities For Kids
3. On this page, there is a list of games, puzzles, and coloring pages that gullible kids can engage in to help themselves to be indoctrinated into ignorance and denial so that they can become just as close-minded and scientific illiterate as young earthers themselves are. Definitely Not recommended for those who would rather teach their kids what true science is really all about. To really teach kids the true meaning of the words "science" and "evolution" I hereby recommend these sites.
A Book About Charles Darwin For Kids
4. Believe it or not, there is a book for kids out that tell everything about Charles Darwin, his life and times, his adventures in the HMS Beagle and his new groundbreaking theories that changed the face of the science world forever. It's called Darwin and Evolution for Kids by Kristan Lawson, published by the Chicago Review Press in 2003. You can order it from Amazon here.
And here's a link to a review on that book.
Taylor's List of Q's and A's
5. And finally there's a page on the Christiananswers.net site that contains more trick questions and much more stupid faulty answers than what is seen on the GDM questions page. In it, includes this article that stupidly tells the reader to have "caution on the reliability of the dinosaur-bird claim." That's a laugh! Look how Paul has mispronounced Rahonavis' name. They omitted letters "v", "i", and "s" from the name so that their followers will not know the dinosaur-bird's true name and how this special dinosaur, a 80-70 million year old maniraptorian bird with sickle claw feet, is part of the lineage that gave rise to birds of today. And why is Paul telling the reader to be cautious on those claims? Maybe it's because he didn't want the people to know that the claims about birds being direct descendants of dinosaurs is all true. But hiding the evidence and telling the reader to be cautious is not going to make the evidence go away. If the claim about birds being descendants of dinosaurs is true and it is, then why should we be cautious about it?
