Quote# 12721

Did you know that the moon is getting farther away from the earth every year? Well, about 1.5 million years ago, the earth would have been so close to the moon, that all the dinosaurs would have been mooned to death. The Moon killed the dinosaurs!!!!! (BTW, this proves the earth is not millions of years old.)

It is impossible to extrapolate back in a straight line over such a huge time period. As such, your claim is bullshit. Go learn something about statistics, fuckwit.

Mooned to death? You're a bright one, aren't ya?

7/2/2006 2:00:55 AM


I... what?

7/2/2006 2:07:19 AM


Did you know that I just threw a ball up in the air? At it's current speed it's going to reach Mars in 1.5 million years...Wait a second...THE BALL IS FALLING BACK TOWARD ME! WHAT IN THE WORLD AND THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS HOLY IS GOING ON HERE! I DON'T UNDERSTAND! HELP! HELP!

Of course, scientists are suppressing this knowledge.

7/2/2006 2:33:19 AM


Well, as long as BCf is being a moron over there and not on our forums, I'm happy.

7/2/2006 2:38:40 AM


You IDIOT. They weren't mooned to death! They escaped onto the moon, where they now live.

7/2/2006 2:45:10 AM


mooned to death... well there's an image i don't want to think about

Dante's Virgil

So the Man in the Moon mooned the dinosaurs and they were so aghast they fell down dead. That's great.

7/2/2006 3:08:17 AM


Don't laugh! I was nearly mooned to death when I hired a plumber to fix my sink!

7/2/2006 3:25:30 AM


wow, who'd have thought that dinosaurs were such delicate creatures... Fundies, OTOH, are quite used to being in close proximity with their \"moon\", so it wouldn't work on them.

(on a side note: dinosaurs died 65 millions years ago, fucktard!)

We should hold some sort of competition, a \"Dumb-off\" if you will, between some of these... uh... people. A battle of \"wits\" between BigChrisfilm, JohnR7, dad and mamacags, WooHoo! Of course, that much stupidity all in one place probably causes cancer or something, so maybe we had best skip it.

7/2/2006 3:52:52 AM


Ah, yes. BigChrisfilm, dad, and JohnR7: The Unholy Trinity of the Church of Stupid. Run in terror.

7/2/2006 4:11:07 AM


Hahaha, is he fucking serious?

How would that even work? Is the idea that um... the gravity would fuck them up or something? Or is he actually imagining the moon pressed against the earth, grinding any dinosaurs in between?

Hahahahaha. Surely this can't be serious.

7/2/2006 4:33:42 AM


Ah yes, argument from bad math. These are always fun.

As Hadanelith pointed out, extrapolating millions of years from a hundred years of data (if even that) is almost guaranteed to be wildly inaccurate. Zoom in close enough and any continuously differentiable curve looks linear. More to the point, there are obvious physical reasons the moon's distance from earth would *not* be changing at a constant rate.

<<< Hahahahaha. Surely this can't be serious. >>>

You overestimate BCF's intelligence. He's either an extraordinarily devoted troll or dead serious and nearly as dumb as JohnR7.

Mooned to death?

(15 minutes of laughter emanate from SD's room)
I now officially have a new favorite quote.

Napoleon the Clown

Still a complete fuckwit, eh?

17And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.

18And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

19And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

20And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

21And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:

22And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:

23And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.

If God can moon Moses without any serious consequences, than the dinosaurs will survive the mooning of the real moon.

Geez, I heard it wasn't mooning but this.

The moon is moving away from the Earth at about 1.5 inches per year. Over the past 1.5 million years it has retreated about 35.5 miles. It is now about 240,000 miles away, so this distance is negligible.

In fact, there is good evidence that the moon has been receding from the Earth at a constant rate for at least 900 million years.

Oh god, this made me laugh out loud hysterically. Not bad, but I'm at work and now the delivery guy thinks I'm crazy.

7/2/2006 3:28:40 PM


You know, when you stop trying to make the universe conform to the Bible it starts to make a lot more sense.

7/2/2006 7:18:59 PM


he said mooned to death!


7/2/2006 9:24:46 PM


I've read this dink before but I find it hard to believe that anybody is seriously this stupid. This is a joke, right? Please say it is.

7/3/2006 6:59:24 AM


The Earth's natural satellite is not a verb...

\"Mooned to death\"--it's so painfully sad it's funny!
