Fred Flintstone would have starved

In one of the funnier moments of the Legislative Coffee today, Representative Jensen, in defense of teaching creationism in science class, said that science changes all the time, he said for instance, scientists have determined that Brontosaurus’ didn’t really exist.

Just like their kooky idea to teach religious ideas in public schools they are wrong about the Bront;

The Brontosaurus really did exist, scientists have decided, ending a debate which has rumbled on for more than 100 years,

The huge dinosaur was discovered in the 1870s, but by 1903 palaeontologists ruled the fossil remains were actually from an Apatosaurus.

However a new statistical analysis of the fossils by Oxford University has seen the dinosaur resurrected. Scientists have ruled that it is unique and should have its own genus.

“The differences we found between Brontosaurus and Apatosaurus were at least as numerous as the ones between other closely related genera, and much more than what you normally find between species,” said Dr Roger Benson, a co-author from the University of Oxford.

Yabba, Dabba, Doo.

What other “alternative facts” did you learn today at the “open book” oral exam, I mean legislative coffee?

Next our “House of Lords” legislators are going to tell us that there is no need for an ethics commission, because no one in Pierre is crooked…
