Well unless we had time machines, we would not now EXACTLY what happened. But, we are discovering new stuff all the time.



Exactly. Wich is why I can't accept any man made theory about how the universe got here, or if it's infitnite or not. I don't believe we know, even if it seems accurate to us, that's only through our limited perception.

I think the footprints are real, they are just not dated right.   Those footprints were found in limestone.  The same with the so called 'pre historic hammer'. They were both found in lime stone.    Well there is a village somewhere in africa or asia (sorry not sure) that they have a waterfall, that is so rich with lime, that people hang things on it, and they turn to stone withen weeks.   So I think that limestone gives us a very WIDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE  range of dates given to these footprints.

I'm not sure what you mean by this, but we didn't exactly 'live' during the dinosaur era. We were long after...

Couldn't have said it better myself.

As for the tracks? They have to be mis-dated or something.. hmm.gif

Most paleontologists think the so called "human" tracks there are just "partial" dino tracks that look vaguely human.  I think there is only like one or two that look like that compared to the hundreds of dino tracks in the area.

The fundies also say even the T-Rexes and other predators were all harmless plant eaters until Adam and Eve sinned, and then animals started eating each other.  Oh, and some of these dinos also rode on Noahs Ark because they believe surviving, post flood  dinos are the  dragons mentioned in the Bible after Noah.   There are people with doctorate degrees explaining this on Fundie creationist websites.

Does it behove you to show us where you get your information from?

"Dinosaurs lived in the Garden of Eden and Noah's Ark? Give me a break," said Kevin Padian, curator at the University of California Museum of Paleontology in Berkeley and president of the National Center for Science Education, a group that supports teaching evolution. "For them, 'The Flintstones' is a documentary."  ......


Unearthing dinosaur bones that are millions of years old "doesn't prove evolution, but it shows the Genesis account doesn't work," said Nick Matzke, a spokesman for the National Center for Science Education.  ......

Not what I found DC:

Hugh Ross, an astrophysicist and founder of Reasons To Believe ministry in Pasadena, frets that "young-Earth theologians" damage the credibility of scientists who are Christian and push intellectuals away from religion.

"I'd put them in the same category as flat-Earth people and the people that think the sun goes around the Earth," he said. "They think they're defending the truth, but the young-Earth model has no scientific integrity."

Oh, DC is quite correct, Zandore.  There are actual honest-to-goodness Doctorates out there who believe and claim that dinos rode the ark (I'm telling you, Noah could give Bob Vila a run for his money.  Talk about good use of space!), that dinos used to be vegans, and that dinos and humans walked hand-in-hand.  How they got their PhD's is beyond me.

I'm with DC on this one.  One or two tracks out of the several dozens in the area aren't going to do it for me.  I'm going to want to see something a little more substancial before I go abandoning the preponderance of evidence which suggests otherwise.

I found some of  the same info Aquatus....I am trying to get DC to start giving links to some of his.....claims wacko.gif

EDIT: It says that very thing at the link I provided for him thumbsup.gif

The theme park and science center embodies its founder's belief that God created the world in six days. The dinosaurs dined as vegetarians in the Garden of Eden until Adam and Eve sinned -- and only then did they feast on other creatures, according to the Christian-based young-Earth theory.

Almost word for word!

According to this, 10,000 clergy have signed this letter supporting evolution and its sole teaching in science curricula.  

So maybe there's hope for education yet.

This was discussed in the religions forum, but in Kentucky there is a new, multi-million dollar creationist museum where you can see otherwise very high tech and realistic full size dinosaur replicas that have saddles on their backs, just like Noah's!  And this is in a state that can't afford snow plows to keep the interstates open.  Last winter, it really was like the "Ice Age", If you had to drive through Kentucky, you were out of luck.

I thought that DC was actually taking the mick out of fundamentalists. I used to work with a guy who's dad was a minister and they firmly believed that there were dinosaurs on Noahs ark. When I disputed this my friend (just because he's misguided doesn't mean I don't like him, in fact differing opinions gives us much more interesting conversations.) Bought in all sorts of reading material by all sorts of scientists backing these theories up.

The on thing that has me stumped is the timeline, ie.

EDEN---ADAM AND EVE SIN---SOME CREATURES BECOME CARNIVORES---SOME TIME LATER---NOAHS ARK

If by that point T-Rex's were carnivores wouldn't they have preyed on every other creature on this  mahoosive boat?
