T-Rex was a coconut eater, it is why it had such big, big teeth. Chris Hedges over at Truthdig explains why half of all Americans are crazier than coconut cream pie, you guessed it, it is those born again right wing Christian fruit cakes, and they are at it again.

Before Adam and Eve were expelled from paradise, museum visitors are told, all of the dinosaurs were peaceable plant-eaters. The evidence is found in Genesis 1:30, where God gives “green herb” to every creature to eat. There were no predators. T-Rex had such big teeth, the museum explains, so it could open coconuts. Only after Adam and Eve sinned and were cast out of paradise did the dinosaurs start to eat flesh. And Adam’s sin is a key component of the belief system, for in the eyes of many creationists, in order for Jesus’ death to be meaningful it had to atone for Adam’s first sin.

Chris Hedges also points out that a 2004 Gallup poll revealed that 45 percent of Americans who partook of the poll believed Genesis was a true story and only 13 percent believed that life arose from natural processes. Read it and weep.

This is the saddest shit I have ever read. It is so pathetic it boggles the mind and if you think we should just laugh it off well think again. These kooky versions of Christianity travel to Israel where they dress up in Uncle Sam outfits or stick American flags in their hats and parade around Israel inflaming an already ugly situation. Why would they do this? Because they believe that Israel is the focal point of what the born agains are waiting for – the rapture. They are dedicated to bringing about Armageddon and they believe Israel is the key to their unholy mission. These folks have lots of money and they are putting it to use by supporting the right wing factions of Israel in the hopes that it will lead to a war that will engulf the entire world.
