Quote# 5112

The [vapor] canopy would filter the harmful rays from the sun therefore allowing a longer lifespan of humans and animals insomuch as the reptiles of that day would grow immensely as reptiles grow all troughout their life span and would appear as dinosaurs.

Just like a magnifying glass would allow a longer lifespan for an ant.

Yeah, except that most dinosaurs weren't especially large, dinosaurs are actually a separate group from reptiles and many of the later ones were more closely related to birds. That and pretty much all dinosaurs have little physical resemblance to any living reptile.

Also, explain how the largest ever known animal, the blue whale, exists today, Tribtime?

Reverend Jeremiah

It wasnt a water canopy..the bible STRICTLY said that the firmament was the sky, it was solid, and the stars were set inside of it. It also had windows in it for whenever god want it to rain or flood, they were called the "windows of heaven".

Please dont try to make it sound scientific.

Sigh, more Hovindian BS.

First of all, the "Vapor Canopy" hypothesis is based on an over-analyzation of a few metaphorical Bible verses. And if you say that they are meant to be non-metaphorical, you are basicially conceding that the "Heaven" referred to throughout the old testiment is in fact the sky. Although reptiles do indeed never stop growing, as they get older their growing does slow down to a rate where the growth is extremely slow and small.

PS. Despite modern consensus, not all dinosaurs were bulking behemoths like the Tyranasaurus and (to a lesser extent), Stegasaur. How do you explain those other species?

RATING: 2/5. The same songs sung again. Although it's not particularly UNfundie (I mean, this is basic Creationist nonsense right here), it's not particularly original or shocking in it's ignorance, really.

Right, that's why Eskimos who spend most of their live covered and Rain forest tribes who live under a dense canopy their whole lives live longer and are bigger than other humans

Oh, wait,,They're not

And thats why tunneling lizards, rainforest lizards and swamp alligators all become bigger than buses and live for centuries

Oh,,wait,, that's not true either

This is almost as logical as Tarot Cards and palm-reading...
