Because reality scares the hell out of them.  :lol:

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

Could be an adaptation to compensate for the severely 'out-of-shape' skull.

Here's an interesting webpage about the health effects those extreme skull deformations must have had:

Impossible.

There's no "giant footprint" in the skull.

Could be...and yes, that was interesting.

But that Paracasoid looks like he could chew the raw-ass clean off an ill-tempered buffalo.

If he was really hungry, I mean.

Really? Great flood did'nt happen?
Ok well enlighten me and exlain how the grand canyon was formed.
Thanks!
A million years and the Colorado river.  :geek:

If the Great Flood created the Grand Canyon, then, since it was a world wide flood, we should see hundreds of other canyons just as deep and just as wide. Yet we don't.

On all the world's ice melting, Cormac is right that the sea level would only rise 65 meters. Satalite technology, ice penetrating radar, and other technologies have allowed mankind to find out very closely how much ice is at the poles and using that calculate what would happen if it melted.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

I hope you noticed he lost a lot of the molars in the back of his mouth.

And, that a lot of the bone tissue near the roots of the teeth and molars was lost in time, and that that is what made the teeth amd molars look huge.

:huh:
'Cause myths used to be a way to explain the world before we came up with better ways of finding authors, and people still find these stories compelling. Either for religious reasons or due to peer pressure.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

Because Most myths have truths that are inside it at some point, take a myth find out the orgin or beginning of it and you will have some truth enshrouded in it.

Which may well be entirely unrelated to the later versions of the myth.
Take Robin Hood.
He started out as a mess named Ribbon Hod who lived in a tree.

I agree, but the truth is usually not even close.   Take an ancient person finding a "giant" dinosaur bone.   Now the myth is that giants once roamed the earth.   The truth is that an acient man found a giant dinosaur bone.

Yeah.

Thousands of years ago a couple were making love in the orchard of some dictatorial a--hole. When finished the girl took an apple form a tree in the orchard, and the guy at first didn't think it was a good idea, but her looks 'convinced' him to take a bite anyway.

Then the owner of the orchard caught them in the act, and kicked them out for ever.

They had been hobos for a long  time, wandering here and there, and he was so kind to give them a place to stay, educated them somewhat because they didn't know scheise (he re-created them from the dirt they came from) but only if they would obey his strict rules.

I would like to share with you what could be one of the best pieces of evidence that there were once giants on Earth a long time ago. It's known by the locals as the 'Footprint of God'. This giant footprint is located in South Africa. It's size is around 4ft long. If it is genuine, the owner of that footprint would've been 24ft tall. The history of our planet is a lot stranger than most of us could possibly imagine.
