There have been many valiant attempts over the years to disprove the theory of evolution.
Ray Comfort tried using a banana.
When that didn’t work he tried “Crock-O-Duck”.
This guy tried appealing to a jar of peanut butter.
And, of course, there’s Ken Ham who built an entire “museum” to try and prove his point.
But now, we may have an argument for creationism that trumps them all: the Loch Ness Monster.
That’s right, the Loch Ness Monster disproves the theory of evolution and we know that’s true because it’s in a biology textbook.
Loch Ness Monster seen as real dinosaur in biology books taught in Louisiana school
By Erik Ortiz / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
The Scottish legend of the Loch Ness Monster is suggested as truth in a biology book that a private Christian school in Louisiana is using in its curriculum.
But that’s only part of the outrage from critics: Students who are eligible for taxpayer-funded vouchers will be allowed to attend Eternity Christian Academy in Westlake for the 2012-13 school year, according to reports.
The startling claim about Nessie’s authenticity is made to bolster creationism within the textbook, the Scotsman newspaper reported Monday. The Loch Ness Monster is described as a type of dinosaur, and if dinosaurs and man co-exist, then presumably there would be holes in the scientific argument for evolution.
The textbook, produced by Accelerated Christian Education, features a passage about the Loch Ness Monster in the Biology 1099 edition, Scotland’s The Herald reported.
“Are dinosaurs alive today? Scientists are becoming more convinced of their existence,” the textbook reads, according to the newspaper.
“Have you heard of the ‘Loch Ness Monster’ in Scotland? ‘Nessie’ for short has been recorded on sonar from a small submarine, described by eyewitnesses, and photographed by others. Nessie appears to be a plesiosaur.”
