Quote# 2701

[Using an artists painting as evidence that gravity changed somehow, some way.]

The image above, from A. D. Stolyar's "Origins of Representational Art" clearly shows pliestocene artwork involving a mammoth elephant stretched out in full gallop.

Another anomaly involving gravity; that could not happen today

Artistic expression as scientific proof.
Maybe we can start using legend and myth as historical fact. Oh wait, there are those pushing for that.

No one can be that stupid.

8/24/2005 5:10:55 PM


If only that were true, Jimmy ...

8/24/2005 8:51:13 PM


I've never lost a bet yet that was based on how stupid some people can be.

8/25/2005 6:51:10 AM


Wow, that's so stupid it hurts.

If fundies are stilla round in a few centuries I wonder how they would interpret the works of Magritte or Dali.

Hey that's about as stupid as trying to use Rennaisance art to prove Jesus was white.

They should still be able to pick the masturbation in Dali's work, but the melting clocks might make them think it was historical and from Sodom or something.

Aw maaaan - next thing we know Mr Science here's going to prove Dumbo could fly!

Hey don't forget this fantastic 'primitive' source only predates their own 'literal' one by a few measley centuries....

Of course there is no way we can tell if that's true seeing as how mammoths are somthing of an exticnt species.

Yes, these days, things can't stretch out and jump, not while they're running, not while they're standing.

Wait, how am I supposed to walk?

If you wanted something to "prove" gravitational anomalies you should have picked M.C. Escher.

You wouldn't believe how different the structure of humans were in the days of Pablo Picasso!

11/28/2007 11:01:16 PM


The words "artistic interpretation" mean absolutely nothing to your kind, do they?

11/29/2007 1:42:12 AM


Modern animals cannot gallop.

1/21/2008 9:11:47 PM


Yeah. Aslo men were stick men! With spears! It was like a xkcd comic.

6/29/2008 9:52:23 AM


@ maxedout,

MC Escher. Definitely.

6/29/2008 12:13:51 PM


You'd go into a full gallop if guys with spears were trying to kill you.

Plus, weren't mammoths around before 6000BC? So eitherway, the argument is pointless, mammoth painting was put there by satan.

so yesterday I saw a picture of a penguin with a sword, so obviously penguins used to be samurai, but today they can't. See I can do it too.

People this fucking stupid won't be alive long.

mammoths were more muscular and fit in those days. Herds of them galloped across the tundra trumpeting as they went.

7/9/2012 8:36:56 PM


A misunderstanding of what a rendering is trying to convey, "representational". Mammoths would have a quick walking gait like Elephants, they wouldn't run like dogs or horses who can be entirely off the ground for awhile HOWEVER they were big and would be faster then humans due to their stride. A fast walking mamoth would look just like a slow walking one in a still picture.

They were conveying the illusion of speed, that's all.

Lady Evil

Before the invention of still photography, people drew and painted running horses all wrong.

What's your point, Medved?

7/12/2012 3:28:56 PM

Filin De Blanc

Perhaps the artist drew it wrong.

I am the world's greatest detective.
