A fresh Jack Chick tract!

The Secular Outpost informs me of the existence of a brand new Jack Chick tract. I don’t know if it truly is new or not, but it does have its copyright listed as 2007. This time around, Jack is explaining why the dinosaurs really died out. (Hint: It wasn’t some big nasty meteor millions of years ago.) It starts out with humans hunting a dinosaur and degenerates from there.

This was so silly that at first I thought it must be a parody. But then I remembered: This is Jack Chick we’re talking about here. I will say one thing, though. The picture of the baby dinosaur hatching from its egg is cuter than almost anything I can recall ever having seen Chick draw. I’ll also give him props for coming up with what has to be the most mind-bogglingly dumb explanation for the extinction of the dinosaurs that I’ve yet to see.

ADDENDUM: Going to show how out of touch with the blogosphere I’ve become because of my recent absence, it turns out that PZ sighted this nearly a week ago. Of course, I was in Toledo then in a place with minimal Internet access, but that’s no excuse, right?

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
