what i'm listening to right now: Tonight by Iggy Pop

This is an entry from Conservapedia a right wing Christian fundamentalist answer to Wikipedia. Endless hours of laughter are possible.

The existence of unicorns is controversial. Secular opinion is that they are mythical. However, they are referred to in the Bible nine times,[1] which provides an unimpeachable de facto argument for their once having been in existence.
In the original texts, unicorns go by the Hebrew name Re-em whereas the Greek Septuagint used the name Monokeros.[2] Unicorn itself is Latin. All three names mean "one horn".

While popularly characterized as a horned member of the horse baramin, it is likely that the unicorn was actually quite unhorselike. One recognized theory is that the unicorn was actually the rhinoceros,[1] however a growing number of Creation researchers are theorizing that the unicorn was actually a member of the ceratopsian baramin.[2]
Post-Noachian references[1] to unicorns have led some researchers to argue that unicorns are still alive today. At the very least, it is likely that they were taken aboard the Ark prior to the Great Flood.
How can anyone expect to be taken seriously when they say that unicorns are real. And that biblical scholars say so. Find me a biblical scholar that's not a wingnut, and ask him/her if unicorns are real. Wait, maybe I don't want to know what they'd say. I'd be too upset if someone who went to college believes that.
thanks to Sadly, No for originally finding this
