The Library of Stupid

Evidence of Harm by Religion, a Facebook Page I frequently visit has a photo album on it featuring the most idiotic books made by religious people called The Library of Stupid, which contains books that are almost guaranteed to make you less intelligent if you read them. I know some of these books. I looked at them and they most certainly do make my head explode every time I felt strong urges to look at such books over the years and I find myself heading to a certain fundie family, who lived in a neighborhood where I used to live in, to borrow their idiot books. Well I was just browsing on ebay for dinosaur books to add to my own personal library when I encountered 3 in the latest brainwashing books targeting laypeople that will make a welcoming addition to the Library of Stupid. The first is Dragons or Dinosaurs by Darek Isaacs:

"Dragon legends are found in nearly every culture around the globe. They have been thought to be myths. Yet, mysteriously, these dragons sound a lot like the other giant scaled reptiles, dinosaurs. Could they be one and the same? Surprisingly enough, the answer to this question is a powerful truth that confirms biblical authority and demolishes the theory of evolution. This book brings forth many new theories and evidence that are sure to fascinate the reader."

The second is Dragons: Legends & Lore of Dinosaurs by Laura Welch, Bodie Hodge and Bill Looney

 "Explore the links between dragon myths and the reality of dinosaurs through vivid illustrations, interactive pages, and fascinating insights! Did you know? There are dragon legends in nearly every culture, from China to Australia, India to Europe, and Persia to the kingdoms of the fiercest Norse warriors. Eyewitnesses to these last dinosaurs include Job in the Bible,Alexander the Great, and Marco Polo. Drawings on cave walls and on ancient art show images that closely resemble beaked dinosaurs and flying pterosaurs. Re-visit history as you trace the tracks of these creatures throughout cultures in Asia, the Americas, Europe, and more, learning the facts, and revealing the fallacies of dragons. Whether battling saints or terrorizing medieval castles, these creatures provide a fascinating link to man's earliest history, as well as a shadowy mystery now found only in the pages of ancient texts."
Ah yes, these young earth creationists latest books both written and published to brainwash children and young adults into believing in the false notion of dragon legends being live dinosaur sightings while ignoring the reality of fossil, historical, and the archaeological records being completely void of non-avian dinosaurs and humans remains together side by side and that all those so-called "eyewitness accounts" in the books are really the direct result of creationists fabricating and distorting dragon legends by twisting every legend, folklore, ancient art and artifacts depicting dragons and other mythical animals to fit their idiot beliefs by leaving in only descriptions they think match dinosaurs while throwing out all others that don't.

And the third one: Mystery in Acambaro: Did Dinosaurs Survive Until Recently by Charles H. Hapgoo.

"Charles Hapgood's rare book, Mystery in Acambaro, is back in print! Hapgood researched the Acambaro collection of clay figurines with Erle Stanley Gardner (author of the Perry Mason mysteries) in the mid-1960s. The Acambaro collection comprises hundreds of clay figurines that are apparently thousands of years old; however, they depict such bizarre animals and scenes that most archaeologists dismiss them as an elaborate hoax. The collection shows humans interacting with dinosaurs and various other "monsters" such as horned men. Both Hapgood and Gardner were convinced that the figurines from Acambaro were authentic ancient artifacts which indicated that men and dinosaurs had cohabited together in the recent past, and that dinosaurs had not become extinct many millions of years ago as is commonly thought. David Hatcher Childress writes a lengthy introduction concerning Acambaro, the latest testing and other evidence of "living" dinosaurs."

Ah yes, anything to convince any lay person into believing that what they claim about the so-called artifacts is authentic while shunning the real evidence of both the fossil, historical, and the archaeological records being completely void of non-avian dinosaurs and humans remains together side by side. He doesn't want anyone to know that all those artifacts are indeed recent forgeries made up by locals paid to create the hoaxes to fool people into believing these forgeries to be authentic while they're not.

Without doubt, all three books above shall be welcoming additions to The Library of Stupid!
