Since today is St. George's day !

It would be good to remind ourselves of the origins of St. George fighting the dragon.

Apparently, it was simply a dinosaur suffering from SNC :P

Stephen Hayes mentioned THIS at that recent talk: http://www.apologeticspress.org/APConte ... ticle=2423

He doesn't mention that the unrelated Bell who pulled back the bishop's rug was none other than CMI's Philip Bell. Who visited Carlisle in 2002 and is proud of his discovery. What isn't clear is whether Bell II went specifically to see the tomb of Bell I because they shared a name and just happened to see the engraving, or because he knew about the engraving and wanted to give it wider publicity - with his own spin.
I can't find any evidence either way. Does anyone know? Is there an earlier photograph? Earlier claims that it was a dinosaur or dragon? Or even a description of it as a fabulous beast?

Slight correction. Thinking back, I'm almost certain it was in fact Dick Barrett not Stephen Hayes who mentioned Carlisle Cathedral.

Uh, what kind of doctor is Kent? Clearly not a doctor of biology or physics. Why not just say that dragons were dinosaurs who produced an excess of phlogiston?

He's a retired GP and is about extreme as they get when it comes to religious fundamentalism. He's at the Taliban part of the spectrum, IIRC, and wants Biblical law imposed on everyone. Very active in pushing his views locally Portsmouth to be precise. He's a one man band.

I see Google have got a birthday cake and other goodies on their search page as of the last few minutes. Nice of them to remember my birthday (54 on 6 May).
Actually I assume it's really to do with Tony Blair being able to collect his bus pass at last. Or perhaps there's an American with a milestone birthday on Monday?

Happy birthday Ashley! Although of course, by YEC accounting you're only about two and a half days old.
EDIT: sorry, my calculator hasn't enough digits for the vast age of the earth. I think the correct figure is about half an hour. :)
