Quote# 76430

[After referencing articles about astronauts becoming slightly taller in low gravity.]

Therefore, it should be of no conflict with science to claim that Adam's size, or man's initial size on earth in general, was in the neighborhood of 90 feet tall, or that the first human-race ever walked on earth was around 90 feet tall, give or take 10 to 20 feet between the creatures' differences in heights as we today have people as tall as 7 feet and as short as 2 feet tall. The reason for this is simply because the planet earth was much smaller than what it is now.

If Adam was 90 feet tall then how big must that fucking apple tree have been? Was the famous apple the size of a soccer ball?

There is no "simply" and no "reason" in your entire post. Just shut up before you say something even more stupid.

The square cube law must have been a bitch for adam... how did he make it out of the garden?

*Sigh*

SLIGHTLY taller. Like, less than an inch. Like, because gravity isn't forcing you down, you don't have your spinal discs compressed, giving you a slight boost in height. Like, NOT spontaneously growing a foot taller.

You know what? Give us proof that these 90 foot tall people even EXISTED, and I'll consider giving this more thought.

He must have confused his Adam with this:

Wrong. So fucking wrong that you have just set a new record for wrongness.

The Koranic Creation story is just a myth largely plagiarized from the Book of Genesis of the Hebrew Bible, which is some 1500 to 2000 years older.

I know very little about these things, but isn't it possible that the Earth was biggger then, that gravity, or centrifugal force, pull inwards, making Earth slowly smaller, but with the same mass?

Anyway, the difference can't be large enough to allow humans to be 88 feet taller then than today. The effect on lenght in space is barely large enough to spot without a tape-measure, right? Adam can hardly have been more than an inch or two taller, IF what Numbskull here believe was true. And, if we look at our humanoid ancestors, it rather looks like we're getting taller and taller, not the other way around.

Look up the square cubed law. Your giant Adam would have been unable to move.

@#1536137: no. It isn't.

(1) There is no evidence that the gravitational constant has changed over the history of the universe.

(2) Centrifugal force does not work that way.

The planet has been about the same size and mass it currently is since it formed.

The Dutch people are, on average, the tallest in the world. Today.

...and methinks a-buh buh derp-a titz(IQ)4.02 here has been watching "Macross Frontier" too many times, it's not healthy. Hey, a-buh buh derp-a, I like that anime series too, but let me tell you it's not a documentary, no matter how much you wish the Zentraedi - such as the leader of Pixy Squadron (and shit-hot pilot of a Queadluun-Rau mecha!) Klein Klan in her 60 foot-high macronised form* - existed:



*- And that's average height for Zentraedi, who can be as much as 80 feet tall.

Except the cube-square law says that if a man is that big while maintaining the same proportions, he would need to spend his entire life laying down as he died horribly from lack of blood pressure, or, more likely, from his lungs not being able to fill at all. His legs holding him up would be so ludicrously undo-able that it makes the rest of the Bible look only mostly retarded.

Usually, fundie statements spend a long time collecting layers of bullshit to hide their impossibility, but this is blatant idiocy on a whole new level.
