In my local Salvation Army thrift store, looking through the children’s books to find stuff for my son, I came across this book from 1992:
For a quarter, why not? The usual: anti-evolution, evolution is a fairy tale, pro-Noah’s flood and theropod dinosaurs were herbivores before the fall. But this image of a Parasaurolophus spewing fire at a theropod (Ceratosaurus?) struck me like a slap on the forehead:
The text above reads:
God has given many animals living today very specialized and effective defence capabilities that have nothing to do with teeth or claws. If the fossil skeletons of a skunk, porcupine, or electric eel were dug up by a scientist who had never seen a living animal, would he have any idea that these animals had unique defense mechanisms?
So, lack of fossil evidence for unique defense mechanisms = fire-breathing Parasaurolophus!
Was that not worth a quarter and two minutes of your time?
