Quote# 14283

[regarding the question of fossil evidence and what happened to Dinosaurs]

Believe it or not, this is one of the topics that I discussed with the Lord. gators and crocks, yes. So are elephants and Rhinoceros's (Praise God for spellcheck )

Some of the things that God revealed to me was that they were not vicious. The big guy with the huge pointy teeth? He ate trees. There was one dino that was found that scientist had believed had swallowed another dinosaur whole? He did not. She was pregnant. They did not lay eggs, they gave live birth, like rhinos do today.
Well, except for the big bird thingy. And unlike its Hollywood and Japanese film counterparts, they had feathers.

Why are they gone? The Lord says that there were not all that many of them to begin with. They were on the ark. And they simply did not reproduce after the flood rapidly enough to survive. With the exception of the ones that survived. Crocks, gators, elephants, rhinos.

Praise God for spellcheck even when it doesn't tell you how to spell \"rhinoceroses\".

Then what were all of those fossilized eggs we've found? The ones with fossilized dinosaur skeletons inside? And if there were so few of them, why have we found so many (relatively speaking of course) fossils? And why did so many of them have huge pointy teeth?

Elephants and Rhinos are dinosaurs?

Words fail me.

WHAT THE HELL is the deal with insisting dinosaurs were all herbavores? Seriously, I don't get it. Does it somehow disprove yet another Biblical story if dinos ate meat?

That, and Gabby, you're full of it. You have never had full-on conversations with God unless you were a) hallucinating or b) dreaming.

I don't care whether it's for pathological lying or hallucination, but this girl needs professional psychiatric help STAT.

And as soon as she's got her head on straight, then maybe we could introduce her to actual knowledge on the subject. I doubt it will do much good beforehand.

\"Believe it or not, this is one of the topics that I discussed with the Lord\"

Fuck, I believe it.

It's 'crocs' not 'crocks' unless slow-cookers were roaming around the jurrasic age.

Pregnant, full belly it's so hard to tell.

Chainsaws have huge pointy teeth=T.Rex eating trees. Riiiiight.

Seems weird that noah would have to build an ark big enough to house multiple giant reptiles (who are going to need a steady diet of trees for the good part of a year, hah!) but then god allows them to die off instead of just killing them in the flood.

Elephants reproduce quickly? A two-year gestation period and females giving birth at five year intervals? And given the high instances of homosexual related activity among elephants, I'm not sure they would've been god's favorite animals.

Flappylittleanus, get off of daddy's computer and clean your room, you've got day-care in the morning.

Leaky crocks evolved from dinosaurs? Blimey?

Why do crocodilians lay eggs in a big mound of vegetation to incubate them?

She was pregnant with a different species, wow! And those fossilised eggs where what exactly?

Trying so hard for that cutest fundy award aren't you. Sorry, it's sewn up for this month.

Was it \"God\" who told you to huff all that rubber cement in the first place?

What about hippos? If elephants and rhinos get to be dinosaurs, then hippos should be dinosaurs, too!

Seriously, just when I think the crap that fundies spout can't get any deeper, I sink up to my neck in their bullshit. It's so discouraging.

I asked the Lord if he really said that, and he told me he doesn't talk to you.

Some of the things that God revealed to me was that they were not vicious. The big guy with the huge pointy teeth? He ate trees.

How come he had crushed bones in his poop? Gabby needs to read something besides creationist propaganda.

There was one dino that was found that scientist had believed had swallowed another dinosaur whole? He did not. She was pregnant.

Uh, regarding the recent finding in China, actually that was a mammal that swallowed the dinosaur. I don't think a mammal would be pregnant with a dinosaur.

They did not lay eggs, they gave live birth, like rhinos do today.

They've found the fossilized eggs (hundreds of them). One dinosaur was called \"Oviraptor\" (egg predator) because it was found near a nest of eggs. After finding some more examples, they later realized that it was actually the mother on her nest.

Libkitten: fundamentalists believe that death is caused by sin, and since they also believe that the original creation contained no sin, they believe that before Adam and Eve sinned there was no death in the world. This, coupled with God's statement in Genesis that he was giving humans every tree and plant for food, means that fundamentalists need to try hard to believe there were no carnivores before the fall.

Marnanel - I've heard that before, so I can understand insisting that there were no meat-eaters before the fall (even though that still makes no sense, but since I don't even believe there WAS a Fall, I'll buy it for argument's sake), but if they insist dinosaurs survived the Flood or were even killed by the Flood, the Flood happened AFTER the Fall!

Unless they're claiming that nothing ate meat until after the Flood, I still just can't wrap my mind around this argument :/

Bleh.

I started to write a post dissecting this, but it's just too dumb to be worth the effort. I mean, seriously, this person thinks that elephants and rhinoceroses are dinosaurs?

I heard there were hundreds of people on the ark, but since they ran out of forage for the big aminals, they drew lots to become food for them.

This is why the aminals became carnivores. They evolved during those 40 days on the ark. Well, technically, they evolved from vegetarians to humanitarians.

Don't look now, gla, but there's a crock right behind you...and it's looking like it's gonna tip!

(1)Elephants and rhinos were not dinosaurs--in fact, your plate of fried chicken is a metric fuckload closer to the raptors in Jurassic park then they are.

Hint: Dinosaurs are still around even today, and they tend to look like this:



or this:



(2)You wouldn't have wanted to hang around a hungry carnosaur. Seriously.

(3)Does any animal alive on earth today eat "trees" with knives? Herbivorous dinos had short, peglike teeth for stripping leaves off of branches--they didn't chew them, they got them wet and swallowed the mass of leaves whole, so that their crop could start breaking them down. Carnivorous dinos had teeth like sharp, pointed steak knives to slice meat. They looked nothing alike and functioned nothing alike. An allosaur probably couldn't have eaten plant material even if it wanted.

(4) Wow--without even realizing it, you just said that an animal can give birth to another animal of a radically different species, which is just what you accuse "evolutionists" of believing, when all evolution states is that the frequency and type of genes within animals will change over generations, with corresponding phenotypic changes.

So you didn't just shoot yourself in the foot, you blasted your leg off at the knee with a shotgun and threw the severed limb into a woodchipper.

(5) The idea that some non-avian dinos might have given birth to live young is somewhat interesting, actually. But most of them likely didn't. Titanosaurs certainly didn't.

(6) You got the feather part right. I'll give you that.



(7) Some of them wandered the earth in herds, larger than the buffalo did before white settlers came. We have fossils. Lots and lots and lots and lots and LOTS of fossils. We have fossil trackways.

(8) Your Ark is impossible. They couldn't have cared for the animals--they didn't have the manpower or the time. And not only is there no evidence of your flood, your flood is impossible.

Physics says its impossible. A resevoir of that much water unground would be forced to the surface long before your flood, and it would be superheated. A vapor canopy as Morris described would turn this world into Venus 2. Even if all of the water fell as ice, it would be steam by the time it hit. Earth wouldn't have been cleansed by water, it would have been sterilized with live steam. And no evidence. None.

You can't make it work in reality unless the laws of physics did not exist in any form then. The story is allegorical.

(9) Plenty of dinos survived. Just not the quadrupeds. You've probably eaten some this week.



(10) Crocs aren't dinosaurs. Neither are gators or elephants or rhinos. They aren't--not everything big and grey is a fucking dinosaur, k?

This is my advice to you:

Go to your nearest biology professor and tell him/her everything you have just said. Then sit your bottom down and prepare yourself for a LONG and INFORMATIVE lecture.
