T. Rex ate coconuts! Who knew?

So... T Rex ate coconuts, eh? Frolicked with humans? Retrofitting myth (Genesis/Creationism) to junk science (Intelligent Design) is so cute! Like watching toddlers when they first really believe in Santa Claus! Here's a quote:
It seems Noah solved the problem of fitting dinosaurs into his vessel by only taking baby dinosaurs. Indeed, the ark has a detailed display of many animals happily boarding the boat: dinosaurs cavort with giraffes, penguins, hippos, and bears.

But here's the best part:
In Genesis 1:30 God gives ‘green herb’ to every creature to eat and so there were no predators. When a curious museum visitor asks, why exactly T. rex had six-inch long serrated teeth, the guides go on to explain that T. rex used his big teeth to open coconuts.

Um... yeah. Maybe it's not so cute after all. Maybe this kind of willful ignorance, while certainly childish isn't the least bit cute. The more I think about it, the more dangerous it seems. Propaganda is always dangerous.
