Cole and I cringe trying to understand why Christians are obsessed with discovering living dinosaurs! 

Mokele-mbembe, Burrunjor, Ropen, even Nessie: All favorites of the oblivious everyday cryptid fanboy, but what if we told you there is a seedy dark underbelly of cryptozoology infiltrated by Bible-thumping Christian fundamentalists!? 

The pseudoscinetific world of cryptozoology has forever attracted the likes of Young Earth creationists, hellbent on disproving real science by locating biologically-inaccurate dinosaurs spawned from the fever dreams and drawings of 19th century colonial imperialists. 

In the spirit of creationism, Cole and I do absolutely zero research and proceed to spew shit in a psychotic rage for your listening pleasure! 

Just remember kids, if a cryptozoologist tries to convince you of pterosaurs existing in the modern day, chances are they’re appropriating a native culture, and your favorite hobby, to cram religious propaganda down your throat!
