Shirt Idea
I'm currently reading the book The Real Planet of the Apes: A New Story of Human Origins (2015) by David R. Begun. The author describes how Georges Cuvier (1769–1832), the "Father of Paleontology" and a devout Christian, famously exclaimed "L'homme fossile n'existe pas" (fossil man does not exist). This included any type of fossil primate. When he was confronted with evidence of a fossil ape, he completely ignored it. Begun believes Cuvier didn't comment on it because his keen scientific mind no doubt recognized the importance of the find and, therefore, felt conflicted as it contradicted his religious beliefs. Other sources point out that, because of Cuvier's high status in the scientific pantheon, it negatively impacted the acceptance of evolution.

I think Cuvier's statement stands as the perfect description of creationists and how their science is informed by the bible. It gave me the idea for a shirt. Tell me what you guys think?

I think that should be the back so it can be bigger, on the front just the words L’homme fossile n’existe pas with a skull next to it on the upper left of the shirt.

I want one.

A nice picture of Jesus could go on the back, with the caption 'Or this'

That's a good idea. I would love to get some of these printed up, but the diagram was taken from google images and appears to come from some text book. I'm sure there might be some copyright issues.

On the back could go: If man was made from dust, why is there still dust?
