Barney Goes Jurassic On Creationists' *sses
AUSTIN, Texas It took decades of fighting against images of a white bearded old guy in a white nightgown, but the spawn of Charles Darwin finally found a mascot of their own.

No, its not Jim Lehrer of NewsHour fame.

Its the other big purple dinosaur on PBS Barney!

At a recent Texas State Board of Education meeting in Austin, a pro-evolution activist in a Barney the Dinosaur costume showed up with a placard asking, "How old am I? 4,000 or 64,000,000?"

Irregardless of whether this radical furry meant years, weeks, or hours old*, the message was clearly a dig at board chairman Don McLeroy, a rabid foe of the science behind evolutionary biology.
In fact, the Texas Freedom Networks blog quoted Barney as saying: "Creationism isnt science. Lets listen to scientists. Physicists know that the universe is billions of years old. Geologists know Earth is more that four billion years old. Biologists know that life has evolved over eons."

Barney then added, "Shouldnt Texas kids know at least as much as a purple dinosaur?"

Oh to have been a fly on that wall......... :rofl:

1. I smell a lawsuit.
Barney isn't going to be happy about some guy ripping him off while karate chopping the Bible in half.

Does this dweeb really think an endorsement by Barney is going to help? Most people over the age of six find him repulsive.
