I've re-posted this to do a little follow up and simply because I like it. I really don't want to get into the creationism v. evolution debate, you've got your beliefs, I've got mine. The creator of this little ditty was trying to make some kind of gesture to scientific discovery while keeping their feet firmly in the christian fundamentalist camp. I think its meant to be tongue-in-cheek and it would be wrong to read too much into it but there are certain issues to address here. Jesus was not around at the time of Noah and the flood, least not in human form, and secondly we can only imagine the kind of grief Noah had in providing bed and board for a boy and girl T-Rex, not to mention the full spectrum of dinosaur kind.

I did research (2 minutes Google) to check if the colouring book was genuine and found this instead:

It's a similar concept. I love the tag lines 'TRUE BELIEF COMICS', 'SCIENCE ACTION STORIES'. There are several more issues going on here. I love the fact that both protagonists have ginger hair. Jesus looks like some mad celt and Darwin (looks nothing like him) is drawn like some kind of Darby O'Gill character. Basically it looks like some kind of mad Irish bar room brawl. Jesus, a self-professed pacifist looks particularly demented.

I'm going to leave the final word to Bill Hicks, as he would wish:
