Quote# 15485

Even scientists have admitted that the dating of fossils is faulty. I find it very confusing when I am told that we were once monkies, yet there are no fossils proving this. As someone said the make up of a monkey is close to ours, but still not the same.
Another thing that puzzles me is that scientists try to tell us that humans existed at the same time dinosaurs did, yet there is no mention of this in the Bible. I am sure as big and mean as they were, there would be a mention somewhere. I am also sure that IF they existed at the same time as man, that man would NOT be at the top of the food chain. Also, if they existed where are they mentioned in all of the historical writings?
God Bless.

O Rly? Find me one credible scientist who says this. And not just some 6-year old who finished watching a Flintstones marathon.

He's right about one thing. We didn't evolve from monkeys.

We evolved from apes. ;-)

He tries to argue bad science starting from horrifically wrong assumptions.

The reason the bible doesn't mention dinosaurs is because there were no anthropologists back then. Oh yeah, and god WAS science!

\"Another thing that puzzles me is that scientists try to tell us that humans existed at the same time dinosaurs did, yet there is no mention of this in the Bible.\"

Woah there, just hold on a minute... the only ones making the claim that they lived together are Creationists like Kent Hovind.

Stop trying to shove your debunked arguments on our side, fucktard.

\"Even scientists have admitted that the dating of fossils is faulty.\"

I think most scientists in the field will admit that dating of fossils is inexact, but that does not mean \"faulty.\"


\"I find it very confusing when I am told that we were once monkies, yet there are no fossils proving this.\"

You should find such an asertion confusing because it is incorrect. Those who understand and accept the ToE assert that humans and monkeys share common ancestry, not that humans WERE monkeys. There is plenty of evidence, some of it in fossils, showing that monkeys and humans are related.


\"As someone said the make up of a monkey is close to ours, but still not the same.\"

Of course it is not the same, we are RELATED to monkeys, were are not monkeys. That's why monkeys are called monkeys and we are called humans.


\"Another thing that puzzles me is that scientists try to tell us that humans existed at the same time dinosaurs did, yet there is no mention of this in the Bible.\"

No, real scientists, as opposed to creationist \"scientists,\" understand that dinosaurs died out millions and millions of years before humans evolved. The Bible doesn't mention dinosaurs because it was written starting several thousand years ago by human beings, long after the dinosaurs had died out. These authors had not idea that dinosaurs had EVER existed.


\"I am sure as big and mean as they were, there would be a mention somewhere.\"

I know that not all dinosaurs were big, and I'm sure that not all of them were mean, however, I agree, if dinosaurs had existed when and where the Bible authors could have seen them they would have been mentioned in the Bible.


\"I am also sure that IF they existed at the same time as man, that man would NOT be at the top of the food chain.\"

I agree. If significantly large, meat-eating dinosaurs had existed in the same time and area that humans existed, humans would not be a the top of the food chain, unles they had already developed weapons and group hunting tactics. All moot points as the dinosaurs had been extinct for millions of years before humans evolved.


\"Also, if they existed where are they mentioned in all of the historical writings?\"

That dinosaurs existed is well documented in science texts written since the dicovery and understanding of their fossils. There is no historical documentation of their existence at the same time as humans because they did not exist at the same time as humans.


\"God Bless.\"

Uh huh. Thanks.

No real science says humans existed with dinosaurs. They say the opposite.

Every now and again a little education is called for, someone may learn something. (I know I have too much faith in fundie kind)!

\"Geologists and paleontologists are highly self-critical, and they have worried for decades about these issues. Repeated, and tough, regimes of testing have confirmed the broad accuracy of the fossils and their dating, so we can read the history of life from the rocks with confidence.\"

Scientist are saying that Dinosors and hmans NEVER cohexisted. It´s fundies who keep on saying(on the overwhelming quantity of fossils)that they coexisted with humans.I nominate this guy to worst quoter of the month.

And many Christians have admitted that the translation of the Bible through history is probably faulty as well. Would you like us to throw that out as well, or can we just pretend you never made your silly little statement in the first place.

Here's a hint: You can't prove Biblical creationism with logic. Don't even bother trying, it just makes you look like a moron.

Oh, and by the way. Go spend a weekend in the Alaskan Rockies with no modern technology. When that grizzly bear comes around your campsite, you tell him you're the \"top of the food chain.\" Remember: today's moron is tomorrow's bear shit.

PS: Sandman, while my grizzly brethern are benevolent and ready to help humanity by removing fundies from the gene pool, they are also smart enough not to eat said fundies.

I agree wholeheartedly with the concept that dating fossils is faulty. I much prefer women my own age.

Dan Akroyd: \"Jesuslover, you ignorant slut! No scientists say humans existed at the same time dinosaurs did.\"

Jesuslover: \"Oh - OK, never mind ...\"

By \"scientists\", maybe Jesuslover means Kent Hovind ...

Well at least this one acknowledges that the Bible does NOT mention dinosaurs.

Since when do scientists say that dinosaurs coexisted with humans? WTF?

I've got mixed feelings about this one. Of course his knowledge about many subjects is just right out wrong, but he seems to understand that their is a reality outside of the bible. Just get him some real history and biology textbooks and maybe he'll be able to form better conclusions.

... scientists try to tell us that humans existed at the same time dinosaurs did...

Well, you must have been talking to some crackhead scientists. How about you read some books instead of listening to those so-called \"scientists\" who obviously have some sort of agenda [cough, Kent Hovind, cough].
