I'm getting sick and tired of dinosaurs being forced on our children

I'm really concerned about dinosaurs, and I think something needs to be done. The science behind them is pretty flimsy, and I for one do not want my children being taught lies. Did you know that nobody had even heard of dinosaurs before the 1800s, when they were invented by curio-hungry Victorians?

Charles Darwin's later theory of evolution entirely disproved dinosaurs, yet the dinosaur lie was twisted and adapted to try to make it fit. Any proper look at the facts will reveal that dinosaurs simply never existed.

Aside from the educational aspect, dinosaurs are a very bad example for children. At my children's school, several children were left in tears after one of their classmates (who had evidently been exposed to dinosaurs), became bestially-minded and ran around the classroom roaring and pretending to be a dinosaur. Then he bit three children on the face. One poor girl has been left with a severely dented nose and the whole class was left traumatised by this horrible display.

Nothing about dinosaurs is suitable for children, from their total lack of family values through to their non-existence from any serious scientific point of view.

Recently my sister foolishly gave my two youngest some dinosaurs toys for Christmas. After telling her to get out of my house I burnt the dinosaurs. My children were delighted because they know that dinosaurs are evil. I am fortunate that my family has been very supportive, and has disowned my children's former aunt.

Please, do what you can to get dinosaurs taken off the curriculum. Our school has been recently presented with a 214-signature petition, and following that and our recent protest the headmaster has said that he will take it the governors. We are lucky that he is so sympathetic to our cause, but I fear that others may not be.

If you would like to lend your support to our campaign, we have a Facebook group where we spread facts and research about the dinosaur myth. Hope to see you there! :-)

You are actually being serious!

So go on then what are all these really massive skeletons they are finding around the globe?

They being the scientific community?

I'd save your anger for pirates. They are presented as fun characters, but were a bit like terrorists.

Hahahaha - best laugh I've had all week reading that! We LOVE dinosaurs. Rooooooaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrr!

This is hilarious...

Are you going to get evolution off the curriculum. Are you a youn Earth creationist?

You know that dinosaurs are just a gateway to the harder stuff though. One day your children are watching Walking With Dinosaurs then suddenly they're onto the hard stuff and reading The Origin of Species.

Dinosaurs,just say no!

Completely agree.

This is much more serious than dinosaurs, I agree.

In my book, it's ok to teach dinosaurs in school, but it needs to be balanced with equal emphasis on other creatures. I would love my children to learn about unicorns, for example, or centaurs, or even sabre-toothed tigers, but, no, it's always the fecking dinosaurs.

I know we live in a country that embraces dinosaurism and holds it close to our hearts, but if we don't open our hearts to other creatures, mythical or otherwise, then, frankly, our future looks bleak.
