Quote# 75070

In Hollywood movies like Jurassic Park we see creatures like the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptors hunting us down and eating us alive. And no doubt, if humans and dinosaurs coexisted some of that certainly happened. But for the most part the opposite was true. We hunted them down and cooked them for dinner. In many of the legends and much of the ancient artwork that is exactly what we find—humans hunting down the giant reptiles and killing them. Lions and tigers and bears did not have it quite as bad as the dinosaurs (hence why they are still around). That is because our ancestors seemed particularly fixated on “slaying the dragon!”

So what happened to the dinosaurs? Apparently the ones that survived global climatic change got eaten by us. Some may still survive in remote areas of the world which have not yet come under our complete dominion, and there are hundreds of such sightings every year to this effect – especially from indigenous, primitive people groups in remote areas who speak to incredulous Western scientists (who naturally do not believe the natives because of their entrenched so-called “scientific” presuppositions. In our view, this is wrong. Science should be the impartial investigation of evidence without prejudice, not an arbitrary human effort to prop up flawed theoretical histories of the Earth).

- We did not live at the same time as dinosaurs.
- Dinosaurs were generally way too tough or fast for us to kill if we had.
- There is NO. WAY. that there are ANY dinosaurs left. Oh, wait, there are: BIRDS.
- Any global climate change with the power to wipe out the dinosaurs is too big for us to survive.
- Why is anyone from RR talking about science?

Edit: Hey, first. There's a change.

Why do so many Americans still think the globe has big areas marked "terra incogntia - thar be dragons"?

Yes, because their teeth and claws like butcher's knives are no match for our...our...rocks, clubs and pointy sticks?

Face it, if we coexisted with dinosaurs, we would've been little more than a midnight snack.

Mr. Boston

Look at the cave-paintings. They depict people hunting woolly mammoths, bison, etc. No references to T-Rex, Pterodactyl, etc. Why's that? They just chose to keep it a secret?

"In Hollywood movies like Jurassic Park we see creatures like the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptors hunting us down and eating us alive."

Which they would. Quite easily and quite often, I would imagine.

"And no doubt, if humans and dinosaurs coexisted some of that certainly happened."

If.

"But for the most part the opposite was true. We hunted them down and cooked them for dinner."

Then why do we find no evidence of such? No tool marks on dinosaur bones, no bones found in caves or camp sites of early humans, no arrowheads lodged in skeletal remains of dinosaurs. Nothing. Ever. Anywhere.

Explain that.

"In many of the legends and much of the ancient artwork that is exactly what we find—humans hunting down the giant reptiles and killing them."

You realize that the St. George legend, and those like it, are allegorical stories of the Church/Jesus (i.e., St. George) conquering Satan/sin (i.e., the Dragon), don't you?

"In many of the legends and much of the ancient artwork that is exactly what we find—humans hunting down the giant reptiles and killing them."

Because it's religious allegory you fucking moron.

"So what happened to the dinosaurs? [snip rambling idiocy]"

A big ass meteor landed on them. The rest of your babble shows you to be quite a gullible dupe of dubious mental faculties.

Radiometric dating of dinosaur bones says otherwise.

Hey Steve, The Flintstones is not a documentary.

How can people be this delusional? I seriously don't understand how it is possible.

Maybe it's because all of the evidence dug up so far indicates overwhelmingly that you are full of shit.

The dinosaurs were Raptured by a meteor 65 million years ago and are waiting to eat you when it's your turn to enter heaven.

Although they may get indigestion for their troubles.

Careful using that phrase on RR. They might burn you at the stake for being a heretic.

Humans eat very few carnivores. We tend to not like the taste of the animals who eat meat, and prefer the taste of the animals who eat vegetables.

The dinosaurs evolved into birds. And the dinosaurs that failed to evolve died out 65 million years ago. That's like 63 million years before the first humanoid stood up on her hind-legs.

Science IS the impartial investigation of evidence without prejudice. It stays far away from the flawed theoretical histories of the Earth spouted by Bible-literalists.

Edit. After hearing the news this morning I have to change my figures to "like 61 million years before the first humanoid". The impartial investigations of science have found evidence that pre-humans used stones as tools some 3.4 million years ago. That's apparently 800 000 years earlier than they previously thought.

Ouch! That irony burns like a MoFo!

Anyway I'm off to KFC to get me some dinosaur.

Trust me, even if they called them dragons or whatever else they may call them, a number of scientists would be all over that discovery. No presuppositions required.

Doubting Thomas

Here's a hint: Jurassic Park and The Flinstones were not documentaries. Neither was that movie made in the 80's about two explorers in Africa who find a baby dinosaur. The name escapes me at the moment.

*edit* Found it, it was Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088760/

I totally agree. It's unfortunate that you don't.
