18. As a Canadian, this is really the kind of thing that reminds me...
that, in spite of all of our superficial similarities, in spite of all the American pop culture we consume, our countries are very different in some key ways. I just don't see that kind of painting being done here, even by our conservative christians. For example, a former leader of the Conservative Party once said that he believed dinosaurs and humans had coexisted and the earth was under 10,000 years old; he was universally ridiculed in the media and forced out of his leadership. In the US, mainstream media outlets can't go after the "bible is literal truth" crowd the same way.

I really find this painting fascinating!
