Why do people reject documented/recorded facts to follow what can not be proven?

A good example of this is dinosaurs. There has been, and still are, paintings and carvings of humans and dinosaurs together, but people reject these and keep saying that dinosaurs dies 65 million years ago. There was no one there to see it, and there is no way to test it. The known dating methods have been proven wrong in EVERY test I have ever heard of were the date was already known, accepted despite a 100% failure, and despite the FACT that there is proof of dinosaurs in the past 1,000 years India, 200 years in North America, and even some siting of dinosaurs STILL alive in the swamp in Africa, the forests of South America, and people who have seen the Locc ness monster claim that it is a dinosaur.

So there was someone there to prove that God created the world in 7 days? Also, lying does not prove anything to me.

Well, dinos did die off approximately 65 million years ago. It's called radioisotope dating and geology.

Ever hear of a guy by the name of Christian Spurling? He revealed in 1993 that it was a hoax--he used a 14 inch toy submarine, sculpted a dino head and neck out of plastic wood, and put that sculpture over the submarine's conning tower.

100,000,000 BC was not fact. I was a shitty sci-fi movie that raped my childhood fascination with dinosaurs.

No, no. That's OUR question for YOU

No, no, no and no.

Now go clean up after yourself.

All dinosaurs didn't die 65 million years ago, that much seems to be true. The rest continued to evolve, for example into what we call birds today.

Someone is once again using the Flinstones as a documentary.

Citation, please.

There have been cave drawings of men hunting crocodiles, and to boost their bragging they increased the size of the animals, but that doesn't make them dinos.

There have been no confirmed cases or sightings of dinos.
So much for a good example.

There aren't caves with paintings of human and dinosaurs together. Any speculation of their coexistence has been proved to be a hoax.

That's because LoneWolf made those.

"people who have seen the Locc ness monster claim that it is a dinosaur."

Well, first of all that's "lock" with a k, not two c's and "Ness" is capitalised.

Secondly, I can tell you for certain that Nessy is NOT a dinosaur. Dinosaurs were land dwelling animals, you will not find one living in a lock.

Katsura, that's Loch Ness (loch being Scots for lake).

@Joules:

You're absolutely right. Way to make an idiot out of myself lol. What's even mroe annoying is I knew that, and somehow managed to fuck up.

Could be worse though, I originally spelt it "lough", the Irish spelling.

If the Loch Ness monster is real, then it wouldn't be a dinosaur.

THAT IS NOT WHAT YAHOO ANSWERS IS FOR

"A good example of this is dinosaurs."

Dinosaurs are undocumented? Someone should tell all those museums around the world about this.

"There has been, and still are, paintings and carvings of humans and dinosaurs together, but people reject these and keep saying that dinosaurs dies 65 million years ago."

Point to one. The oldest cave paintings in the world are in France and date to, if I recall correctly, about 15,000 years ago. Guess what, no dinosaurs are shown.

"There was no one there to see it, and there is no way to test it."

What is it with you people that think you have to directly observe something in order for anything about it to be known?

"The known dating methods have been proven wrong in EVERY test I have ever heard of were the date was already known, accepted despite a 100% failure,"

You seem confused. The accuracy is generally around 100% assuming the test is done properly, calibrated correctly and you're doing the test on something testable that's within the dating range of the method you've chosen.

"and despite the FACT that there is proof of dinosaurs in the past 1,000 years India, 200 years in North America, and even some siting of dinosaurs STILL alive in the swamp in Africa, the forests of South America, and people who have seen the Locc ness monster claim that it is a dinosaur."

Show me a picture. No, not a blurry "could be anything" picture either. I want a real hi-res, digital photograph of a living dinosaur.

I want it mostly because it would be kind of cool to see, not because it would make a damned bit of difference if one or more actually did still exist. There have been a number of species thought to have been extinct for several million years that have been found.

The Loch Ness Monster is generally believed to work for the Scottish Tourist Board.

Wait a fucking minute! This idiot is using information from Dr. Richard Paley's African Dinosaur safari 2002 site. This fool doesn't realize it's a Landover Baptist Parody using discredited absurd creationist fake science.

Speaking as a Scot, I hate to say it, but Nessie is just made up to get money from tourists. A bit like religion is made up to get money from idiots.

@ Mike. Great pic, made me laugh.

But did we live together peaceably, that's the question.
