They deny pandemics.
They deny climate science.
They deny life sciences (evolution, stem cell therapies).
A pandemic wreaks devastation and death, and they demand their “right” to join with others in close-knit orgies of worship, protest, ad hoc Trump rallies and the sharing of infections.
The evangelical megachurches — the dinosaurs of the 21st Century — that are still holding massive, densely-crowded services are death cults every bit as much as Jim Jones (Jonestown Kool Aid massacre) and David Koresh (Waco). These Branch Covidians can use grape flavored Kool Aid for their communion.
And these death-cult Grim Reapers know exactly what they are doing. One “pastor” even came right out and said, “Christians should be willing to die for their faith.”
Anti-science superstitionists will be the ones disproportionately impacted, because those who respect science and heed its warnings and recommendations will be the ones to survive.
The deniers and hoaxers self-select for evolutionary elimination as they compete for the next round of Darwin awards.
They can deny Darwin but they cannot escape Darwin.
Another person’s take comes to mind for me. Libertarian Rex, looking up at the asteroid, shouts “Oh no, the economy!”
you are right DD Wiz….except you left out one point…..these flatheads are going to infect, and possibly kill, some innocents, innocent people who are caring and want to take care of themselves and others…..people who carefully try to not infect others….but these flatheads don’t get it….they are not the martyrs they fantasize themselves to be….just self-centered dweebs………
In this case, it doesn’t matter whether they think it is a hoax or not. They will die either way.
Good Ol Trumpus Rumpus, King of Denial.
That must be the Redumblican side of the swamp.
Even old Dino is too smart to wear a MAGA hat.
Megalomania! That you compare yourselves to vintage dinosaurs, so far. But, put it out of your mind, you’re not the whole planet. /s
They’re gathering in groups that have actually surrounded hospitals and blocked ambulances from getting into the E.R. Wanna guess what I’d do if one of those yayhoo’s got inbetween an ambulance carrying someone I knew and the E.R.?
soon to be known as oblivionoceras…
Just don’t ever tell me there’s anything wrong — especially if it involves personal inconvenience.
I’ll be sending this cartoon to all my friends. A classic.
Anywhere on this planet, people are like sheeps, the follow blindly the leader.
Easy for you to say. You still have a job. Wiley, the Alarmasaurus.
GEE, now who does THIS remind me of?? Now… let me think….
So even the dinosaurs who believed the hype and saw it coming are going to die? That’s discouraging.
We know that trump is a dinosaur …. just don’t call him “Rex.”
“The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it.”

famous last words?
Denial-ists help offset the Chicken little-ists. The truth lies somewhere in the middle but no one likes a wishy-washy middle-ist.
I hope this horror at least makes people realize that all those folks that we didn’t think should be making enough to pay their bills are the folks we all actually depend on.
So long as Buttercup runs the government/country as a temp employer who hires/fires at will without input from Congress, this pandemic will not be handled in a serious professional manner. Having daily chest beating news conferences cannot disguise the growing numbers of people infected/lost which might have been avoided. More will die and every death since first notice in Jan/Feb can be directly tied to Buttercup’s mismanagement and inadequacy. His republican toadies insist he is the man, but is he worth what it will cost each of them and us in November and future elections?
Too bad Republicans aren’t extinct – yet.
I’ll just point out that the croc will make it…
And you will not escape God.
Hmm. The New York Times, Washington Post, and CNN, among others, for weeks at the end of January and into February, claimed the flu was worse than Covid-19 and the administration’s task force was trying to scare and/or distract people. This goaded politicians like Mayor DeBlasio to encourage people to go out and party, into mid-March. Now they argue precisely the opposite. They’re the dinosaurs in this scenario.
Mr. Wiley thank you for some great comic. I do enjoy them.
Thanks Warshafted, for showing you swallow the trump propaganda wholeheartedly.
Ah, Trumpasaurus’ ancestor??
Maga minions, not a one is wearing a mask.
“Nothing to worry about. Asteroids and meteors have hit the earth before. It’s only one. Soon, it’ll be close to zero. It’s all cyclical. We’re doing great jobs, here. Doing great, great jobs. It’s all a mammal hoax. Extinction is just a theory. What have you got to lose?”
I always find it interesting how people point out the outliers in arguments like this but not the many cases of church leaders urging online services and protecting their congregants.
The drawing is fantastic but the colorist forgot to give Trumposaurus Wrecks his orange tan.
Reaction to the coronavirus has revealed such “dinosaur” politicians around the world. If only they could be exposed without so many people dying.
Here’s hoping for massive Darwinism results soon!
That talking dinosaur needed a cantilevered red hairdo.
talk about deniers…those that claim they know what happened billions of years ago, yet can’t remember why they came into the kitchen…or where they put their keys…or their eyeglasses…or their common sense…
Now do one with sheep instead of dinosaurs. For you, it’s appropriate to make the sheep the heroes.
Science will fly you to the moon; religion will fly you into skyscrapers!
Then there are the Christians on the front lines risking their lives to save others. Do a search of Samaritan’s Purse and NYC for a current example. Here in the American South, home of hurricanes, we call Christian groups of rescue people the God Squad. They show up with chain saws, food, and medical equipment, and don’t leave until they are no longer needed. They often come in before the Red Cross and the US government.
Is that you Mr. Hannity?

Here, hold my beer. I’ve got this.
As Martha would say, “And that’s a GOOD thing!”
Hate is alive and well and thriving here.
The dinosaurs actually look good by comparison because they’re not carrying guns, confederate flags and Molon Labe signs like the nitwits in Wisconsin.
The birth of conservatism.
That was Odin & Thor’s Spaceship crash landing on Earth.
They survived the Crash and gorged themselves on Dinosaur Steaks until the dinos went Extinct.
Later on, when Humans evolved, they played God, just for kicks.
This post is absolutely correct— or as my Aussie relatives would say, “spot on”.
I was wondering where the TDS people were. Now I know
It’s all fake news. I give you alternative facts because who are you going to believe, me or you’re lying eyes?
very intelligently put if ya’ll have not thought about this you should re-read. thank you Mr. Miller
Thank you Mr. Miller. That is lovely. Especially the crocodile.
