Saurintology (1994)

This is one of Greg Stafford’s Saurintology pamphlets, from 1994. It’s just a single folded, photocopied sheet. As you can see from the cover there, it claims Saurintology is the world’s oldest religion. It seems to be, on some level, a send-up of Scientology, but the energy to me is extremely in line with the Church of the Sub-Genius.

Inside is a survey about favorite dinosaurs, a note that “Trilobites: Deeper Wisdom” is coming soon, exhortations to get in touch with your Dinosaur Self and this doozy of a quote: “Saurintology Teaching Number One: Extinction is forever. Do better than us.”

Fun, then suddenly poignant.
