Ra-Men special - Dinosaur deniers - with Kristen Auclair

#1  Postby DoctorE » Feb 20, 2015 2:30 pm

Kristen Auclair got herself banned from Mumsnet, a parenting site, because she complained that dinosaurs never existed. She believes they were designed before their fossils were fabricated in an unbelievably cohesive globally-unified conspiracy at every level - to promote evolution, and thus deceive people who would otherwise have believed we were all created by magick.

Christians against dinosaurs? Seriously? This is a joke, isn't it? Please tell me it's a joke. This level of idiocy is beyond parody.

This isn't generally the kind of thing that will get you banned from Mumsnet, unless she went on and on about it and in the end was regarded as a troll.

My missus frequents mumsnet and reliably informs me that the individual concerned was being serious.

I don't exactly frequent Mumsnet: I seldom it. And I've just done it again.

Here is a thread of comedy gold (not that I've read all forty pages of it):

http://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/mumsnet_classics/a2301982-Im-getting-sick-and-tired-of-dinosaurs-being-forced-on-our-children

I'm really concerned about dinosaurs, and I think something needs to be done. The science behind them is pretty flimsy, and I for one do not want my children being taught lies. Did you know that nobody had even heard of dinosaurs before the 1800s, when they were invented by curio-hungry Victorians?

Charles Darwin's later theory of evolution entirely disproved dinosaurs, yet the dinosaur lie was twisted and adapted to try to make it fit. Any proper look at the facts will reveal that dinosaurs simply never existed.

Aside from the educational aspect, dinosaurs are a very bad example for children. At my children's school, several children were left in tears after one of their classmates (who had evidently been exposed to dinosaurs), became bestially-minded and ran around the classroom roaring and pretending to be a dinosaur. Then he bit three children on the face. One poor girl has been left with a severely dented nose and the whole class was left traumatised by this horrible display.

Nothing about dinosaurs is suitable for children, from their total lack of family values through to their non-existence from any serious scientific point of view.

Recently my sister foolishly gave my two youngest some dinosaurs toys for Christmas. After telling her to get out of my house I burnt the dinosaurs. My children were delighted because they know that dinosaurs are evil. I am fortunate that my family has been very supportive, and has disowned my children's former aunt.

Please, do what you can to get dinosaurs taken off the curriculum. Our school has been recently presented with a 214-signature petition, and following that and our recent protest the headmaster has said that he will take it the governors. We are lucky that he is so sympathetic to our cause, but I fear that others may not be.

If you would like to lend your support to our campaign, we have a Facebook group where we spread facts and research about the dinosaur myth. Hope to see you there! :-)


EDIT: the fact that it's been put in "Mumsnet classics" speaks volumes. These are threads that one wishes to re-read again and again because they were so hilarious.

Hmm, turns out she was indeed banned for being a dinosaur denier, and a mere 48 minutes (though numerous posts) after starting the thread.

I realise that I'm not really au fait with Mumsnet's banning guidelines.

And 20 minutes later she was back on with a slightly amended username. The plot thickens...

Baddz, it is common for people to claim that petrol is made of liquified dinosaurs. It is not.

Seems her second sockpuppet was banned and that was that.

There are some very funny dino pics in that thread.

ChristDavid (if that's who you are talking about) was not deliberately trolling. That's just the way he is. :P

That woman is a prime example that religion rots your brain. He should have explained it to her in crayon, but somehow I don't think she would've got it anyway.

Dinosaurs have a total lack of family values? That has got to be a poe...

This woman is straight up silly-stupid. Is it okay if I only see her as a piece of meat?

In the interests of finding out a little more about the culture here, I await the answer to this with interest. :whistle:

lol, "lesser cut". Didn't some republican nutjob use that turn of phrase about women recently?

It's not a marriage proposal, obviously I couldn't ever have a conversation with this dimwit, but you gotta admit she looks kinda cute. :lol:
