Quote# 3822

Ancient man saw them [dinosaurs], wrote about them, sculpted them and drew pictures of them because there were still a few around after the flood. The fact that there are creatures like Loch Ness in Scotland and Mokele Umbembe in the Congo Swamp shows that the sea dwelling ones are probably still existing in these unexplored places.

Actually, the Loch Ness monster is a submarine. Driven by Bigfoot.

If they existed they'd have been found and exploited for millions by now. Our increasingly cash driven society would see to that.

The global flood never happened, and Loch Ness is hardly \"unexplored.\" A very thorough sonar sweep of the loch a few years back found no trace at all of even one Nessie, let alone a viable population of them that could have survived for millions of years. (And, no, there cannot be caves connecting it with the sea; Loch Ness is freshwater, not saltwater, and its level is not commensurate with sea level.)

Besides, if I recall correctly, Loch Ness was carved out by glaciation during the Ice Age a few tens of thousands of years ago, so there couldn't possibly be any large animals living in it continuously for millions of years. Wake up and smell reality.

Most of the dinosaurs were dead long before we developed sapience. There are a few animals whose ancestors date back that far (alligators, some birds,) but we're not one of them.

Yep, there must be all kinds of creatures still waiting to be discovered in Darkest Scotland.

I didn't know the Congo Swamp and Loch Ness were seas.

right, and those dinosaurs people wrote about and sculpted stuck arount until the 19th century, I bet.

Also, you can't call Loch Ness an unexplored place. And duh, of course *Loch Ness* exists... the myth however is whether there's a monster.

Ancient man had fears of mythical dragons that were the enbodiment of our primitive fears. And we've searched Lock Ness, and found nothing. A bigfoot has a better chance of existing than that, even Dr. Jane Goodall agrees:

\"Yeti or Bigfoot or Sasquatch….I tell you that I’m sure that they exist….I’ve talked to so many Native Americans who all describe the same sounds, two who have seen them. I’ve probably got about, oh, thirty books that have come from different parts of the world, from China from, from all over the place.\"
