From @lovejee27: “We rescued baby cat two weeks ago from middle of highway road under the tire of SUV vehicle waiting greenlight. We named him “POLY”. He is now adjusting very well in our home with three other brothers. He really loves first brother “SIMBA(Russian Blue)” and always try to hug and bite his brother. ^^“ #TwitterWeek #catsofinstagram [source: http://ift.tt/2artd3m ]

I’m deeply betrayed that she wouldn’t keep reading long enough to send me more quotes.

I was curious if Amazon Kindle carried this book, but  in the process I found out that David Unfred’s stab at the subject has a WAY better cover

“All flesh” included dinosaur flesh, meaning that by  this time even dinosaurs had been corrupted.


Paleontologists makes careers out of inventing species names, but there were really only about 60 different basic dinosaur kinds.

this just makes me think of that hogwarts spoof that goes “as we all know there are only four kinds of kids: brave, smart, evil, and miscellaneous.”

A rapid overview of some more highlights because I really need to stop reading this book before I hurt myself on it:

“These creatures went extinct, as far as is known.” why do I get the feeling this is leading somewhere AMAZING

discussion of which part of the holy trinity is responsible for which part of the dinosaur

“gotcha” statement about circular logic setting up the entire book’s premise starts with “Isn’t it true that…”  No.  No it isn’t.

series of frequently asked questions about how the dinosaurs could have been on the ark fails to ask any of the questions I have right now

FAQ includes discussion of Noah’s T-Rex-wrangling skills and the phrase “Noah could have fed the dinosaurs vegeterian diets” – worth it.

“Some dinosaurs laid eggs. Maybe they all did.” this is the kind of gripping material I look to an educational book to provide

a novel argument: plants can’t die because they don’t have nostrils

“dragons went extinct in China sometime after Marco Polo visited” I can’t believe I am actually reading this sentence in an actual book, what a great day

this chapter is titled “How to Examine Evidence” …i’m dying

fossils are apparently not as informative and unbiased as “reliable eyewitness accounts [of dinosaurs]” more on this revelation as it progresses

now we are pondering why nothing ever fossilizes anymore–a bold question that boldly bears no particular relationship to reality

“Whereas the Flood offers a reasonable scenario for large-dinosaur fossil tracks, secular scientists still need to explain them.“ I just texted my mom ‘provide an explanation for dinosaur tracks.’

Is a behemoth a hippo or a dinosaur? Discuss for at least 8 pages.

Is a leviathan a crocodile or a fire-breathing aquatic dinosaur? Discuss for 4 more pages.

Is a… wait. Are you just naming things you see and saying that they’re dinosaurs?

Observation 1: a lot of people killed by serpents. Observation 2: but rattlesnakes are easy to dodge. Conclusion: Dinosaurs.

Apparently, care must be taken not to confuse dinosaurs with angels.

“Belon knew how to draw a snake, showing that he could distinguish between flying and crawling reptiles.” good for Belon!

interesting argument for the death and resurrection of Jonas inside a fire-breathing sea wolf which was a type of dinosaur

“If armadillos have gone extinct in Turkey within human memory, then why not flying reptiles from other regions?” I just texted my mom ‘explain the armadillo extinction.’

The last chapter of this book is titled “Two Questions About Dinosaurs and the Bible” and frankly I have a *lot* more than two questions about this book.

(Starting with ‘oh my god why did I just sit and read the whole thing what is my life?’)


God, I needed that. :)

2016 is the year all discrimination ended and mankind chose one of two sides which would be eternally embroiled in bitter contempt for one another.

It always baffles me when people peg Harry Potter as a brainy nerd. Like, no, no that’s you, the writer, who is a brainy nerd (love you). 

Harry Potter was a jock. 

Not one of those stereotypical dumb as doorknobs arrogant jerks you see on TV shows and teen-cartoons (because animators were all the brainy kids that got picked on and thus only remember their experiences with jocks negatively). No I mean, Harry was the school’s ACTUAL golden boy jock. Star of his house team, genuinely nice, intelligent, a little thick when it comes to girls and feelings but genuinely well meaning, wasn’t all that interested in books or studying and would rather hang out and have a laugh with mates than do homework. Seriously, Harry Potter was a jock who had a brain, and a heart of gold. Don’t try to tell me otherwise.

#i bet she used to think she was above it too

WHY WOULD YOU POINT THAT OUT. but no like at first she looks up like “goddamn these naive idealistic youths” but then her gaze drops for a moment like “yea we’ve all thought that at one point. but thats not how the world works” and she looks back to the dag and eventually gives her the seeds like “i hope you’ll be able to stay above it”

#your stupid revhead car film with scenes between women talking about themselves  #where one of those is an old woman  #who’s not necessarily blandly sweet nurturing  #and not necessarily wickedly crone-like  #but is a completely valid combination of both  #yes I am a loving and nurturing figure  #yes I also am a horrifying murderous crone  #behold they are come together in one person  #as is the way with most people  #wandering in search of our Better Selves

I scrolled back as far as I could on the tag for “The Cask of Amontillado” and I still can’t find a single reason why everyone’s posting about it all of the sudden

Look a little bit further, in the very back
