Pterosaurs live!

Pterosaurs are alive again! Actually they aren’t but don’t tell that to the folk over at ObjectiveMinistries.org
If you can get past the ironic double speak name check this out.

For the lazy, they wish to obtain funding to travel the globe and find a living pterosaur so they can

  1. Support Creation Theory by showing the incorrectness of the philosophy of Evolutionism.
  2. Educate the population about Creation Science.
  3. Create excitement about Creation and the Bible in the public.

If you didn’t figure it out with the agenda, this is the YEC crowd. They say they would like to roll back the propaganda of evolutionists that trick the public into belieaving that the earth is millions of years old. In their reasoning, if they can find a live pterosaur then that proves that the earth is young, thus creation is real, thus God exists. Go figure.

They are currently in Phase I of a III phase plan. Plans with creepy names like, “Cultural Confrontation and Renewal.” They even have 75% of the necessary funding. I’m curious to follow what happens with this.

  1. You know, they did a very good job making it sound very scientific.  No wonder they have almost all the funding.  Of course, they failed to mention that the Loch Ness Monster and Champ, excuse me “plesiosaur” sightings have never really been proven other than blurry photos and movies as well as photos of supposed carcasses that have not panned out to be anything prehistoric.

    Well, more power to ‘em.

  2. Um, Julian I don’t think so.  Did you go there?  it looks “legit”, from thier point of view.

  3. Hey, I like the verve. They get to travel the world on the money of the gullible people who fund their holidays… eh, I mean research!

  4. Well I could be wrong obviously. But when I started typing it into Google, the first suggestion was ‘objective ministries satire’.

    Then there’s:

    Dr. Paley teaches Divinity and Theobiology at Fellowship University.

    and:

    “Diamond” Jack Holgroth is a Game Theoretician who currently teaches a course in Advanced Game Theory for Theologians at Fellowship University. He served our country during the Cold War as a Game Theory Tactician for the Department of Defense and single-handedly developed an elegant solution to the “Fisherman’s Quandary”, a game theory problem that was crucial to the winning of the arms race and that was famously intractable – until Diamond Jack came along. Jack also enjoys vexillology and can signal Bible passages from memory in fluent semaphore.

    Pastor Rosas of the ecumenical Catholic Outreach Baptist Ministries has helped us greatly in bringing awareness of the anti-Christian bigotry on our Internet to the Catholic Hispanic community. Though most of the Pastor’s flock are too poor to own computers, they are still a valuable asset for raising the awareness of more affluent Christians.

    There’s still hope: Palin + Jindal. 2012? Ya Betcha!

    I think it’s a very subtle parody, but Poe’s Law applies.

  5. I think it is a parody site. Check out their CafePress store. You can buy a Baby Jesus Anti-Fornication Thong! Or a “Free Kent” T-shirt. The Kidz section is also hilarious.

    I remember this site being discussed on some other blog a while back and the general consensus was that it is a very well-done parody.

  6. DOH! It is a parody site! And I should have known better as we’ve been fooled by them previously.

    In my defense I didn’t bother to look at the link before approving the entry because I had one hell of a migraine and I went to bed immediately after publishing it for AA.

  7. Don’t feel bad. The site is pretty damn convincing, until you read a few “clues” like Game Theoretician,” etc. You really have to dig into it to realize it’s a gag. It even has a page calling for the shutdown of Landover Baptist, which is probably a stunt in itself.

    OTOH, a few reporters at major newspapers have mistakenly cited Onion articles as fact, but that one is obviously parody.

  8. I’m now convinced that objectiveministries is a parody site; I suspect that my own web page may have been what “inspired” this.

    A few years ago, just weeks after I had put up my site, http://www.objectiveness.com, I noticed the “objectiveministries” site. I don’t know how long it had been existing. I now suspect it was in parody-response to my site. Why? I am one of the three Americans who explored on Umboi Island, late in 2004, searching for the ropen (an animal that is descibed in terms suggesting a pterosaur).

    Anyway, to the best of my recollection, I started my site around early 2005. Guess what the subject was: living pterosaurs in Papua New Guinea.

    I at first assumed that the apparent minister had similar ideas and ambitions as my associates and I had: exploring tropical rain forests in search of living pterosaurs. But when I tried to get in touch with him I got no response.

    Well, several years passed and I noticed: There was no progress in the “expedition” that had been proclaimed by the apparent minister.

    To the point, I read what others thought about “objective ministries” and looked more carefully at the pages: Yes it looks like a parody, but a subtle one.

    I won’t go into details here about my philosophy or religion, but I would like to distance my writings from this parody. Here is my site that attempts to do this:
