Well i think anything is possible. I am not sure that Megladons are still around. I was doing research on them and that is how i found this site. From what i have read from the skeptics. It doenst sound possible that they are around,but then again anything is possible. I do believe that there are sea monsters , and giant aquatic animals down in the trenches that scientists havent discovered yet. There is alot of stories I think in the Maui area of a giant shark. The natives call the shark The Lord of The Deep.

I was on the fence too...

It's not impossible...we do know that, though they were thought to have been extinct for several million years, a recently discovered tooth suggests they were still around as recently as 10'000 years ago...in evolutionary terms, that's the blink of an eye.

I think that the fact that we've explored so little of the ocean leaves much to be desired about what we can say is or isn't down there...the oceans have supported gigantic animals for millions of years, and even to the present day (the blue whale for example)...I don't doubt for a moment that there are many thousands upon thousands of species that live near the bottom of the ocean, out of sight, that have yet to be discovered.

Is the Megeladon one of them? Possibly...though I find myself wondering what it feeds on...I think one theory was they eat giant squid. Of course, if they've survived, it's not impossible that whatever prehistoric creatures they used as food managed to do the same.

Apparantly, over on Exchristian.Net, they say that I'm "probably the smartest person" on UM....that is so cool...
