Quote# 8185

If the evolutionists were honestly looking for the truth, they would not merely assume the T Rex was “millions of years old,” but might actually consider the distinct possibility that it did survive to recent ages. Is it beyond your comprehension that a small pocket of dinosaurs could have been alive and well and living in Montana a few thousand years ago?

Not beyond my (or anyone's) comprehension, just completely without evidence.

But if Creationists were honestly looking for the truth, they would not merely assume that all the miracles in the book were real, but might actually consider, that it might be fradulent, or misrepresented as a non-fiction book. Is it beyond their comprehension, that the writers of the bible could have been on acid?

Well, I'd say it would actually be possible that dinosaurs existed longer than evolution says, and just not have fossilized. But, evolution doesn't just 'assume' they died millions of years ago, there is actually evidence that they did.

Geological dating methods show no evidence of dinosaurs living anywhere past the KT extinction event 65 million years ago. When scientists first found dinosaur fossils, they didn't just 'assume' they were millions of years old, they figured that out by performing tests and analysis. In fact, before modern paleontology was developed, some people thought the bones belonged to giant birds!

There's plenty of evidence that dinosaurs survived into the 1990's on Isla Nublar, off the coast of Costa Rica.

I know this because I read it in a book. And I saw it on TV.

(hey, at least Crichton used more science than Moses, when he did his writing!)

I freaking read that in a Calvin & Hobbes cartoon!

"Evolutionists" don't just assume that T Rex is millions of years old. That's what the evidence says. Scientists would consider the possibility that a small pocket of dinosaurs were alive and well in Montana a few thousand years ago if there was actual evidence of it.

Dino fossils weren't found above the K-T boundary in Montana, were they? If not, then No. If the "fossils" were only a few thousand years old, they wouldn't be fossils yet. It takes several tens of thousands of years to do that, doesn't it?

so much fail...

If they were living in Montana a few thousands of years ago there would be real bones, not fossils of bones.

I think we'd have found some evidence of their recent existence by now, don't you? You are the ones who makes baseless assumptions about the existence of something for which there is no evidence whatsoever, not us.

Every single dinosaur bone we have found has been radio-isotopic dated to 65 million years ago or earlier.

And radio-isotope dates boil down to _counting_. Counting is not broken.

The scientists never "merely assume" the age of the T-Rex. They do extensive tests and research, from many different angles in many different parts of the world. They all came to basically the same conclusion; the dinosaurs died out some 65 million years ago, after living for some 200 million years.

They probably have considered your point, but discarded it, as it has no evidence supporting it.

Beyond comprehension? Nope. Beyond physical evidence? Yes, indeed.

You all do realize the "Controversy" demands they continually bullshit about science, that it "assumes", "guesses", is "faith-based" or "lacks comprehension".

All tenants of religion.

There is a lot that is beyond your comprehension, dimwit.
