Define "Spectacular!"

Never mind, we already know and this tome, aimed at children, of course, is indeed spectacular, but only in it's dishonesty.

Master Books has just produced what they believe is the best children’s book they’ve ever published—Dinosaurs for Kids.

The artwork in this book is absolutely spectacular.

Based on the 7 C’s we are using in our Creation Museum, I came up with seven ages for dinosaurs—all starting with the letter F: Formed, Fearless, Fallen, Flood, Faded, Found, Fiction. Of course, we live in what could be called the Age of Fiction, where kids are taught a certain fiction about dinosaurs—fiction such as millions of years and dinosaurs dying out before people.

This dinosaur book also does something else secular books don’t do—it teaches kids (and big kids—adults!) about what/how evolutionists believe and compares their ideas to biblical history. Those who read the book will be taught the true history of the world and how the Bible explains dinosaurs. This book is biblical-authority based, apologetics in orientation, and gospel in thrust. Everyone who reads the book will hear the gospel.


And continuing down the page, we find that Ham has proven himself a lying sack of sanctimony yet again:
The book is also filled with lots of facts about the different dinosaurs, fossils, and so on. It could even be used to supplement a science course in school, homeschool, etc..

AiG claims to stay away from creation crap in the classroom, but they're always in the background, pushing, ever pushing.

I would rather face a cold reality than delude myself with comforting fantasies.

You are free to believe what you want to believe and I am free to ridicule you for it.

As if one would ever expect anything else from those people.

Smalled-brained, slow to evolve, and heading for extinction? Yes, I'd say Ken Ham is a dinosaur.
