You know it's real science, not that cheap stuff, when they use Mickey Dolenz in size comparisons. If it was Davy Jones, then it would just be fluff.

These "apes" existed 6,000 years ago, the "scientists" are probably off by their "scientific dating" by a few million years. As we know, the Bible tells us of a behemoth like this. David killed the last of them.

/how was that for a troll?

THAT'S RACIST!

Unconvincing at best. You need to quote senseless quotes and link to "foot-to-mouth" websites that play around with circle logic reasons.

I bet the Chinese probably ate them to extinction.

This just in: prehistoric homonids lived alongside other animals! Stop the freaking press.

Oh, and the reason the apes died out is because they wouldn't stop brewing poison ivy tea.

Exactly. We currently "live alongside" 6 foot tall Eastern Lowland Gorillas.

They weren't exactly having tea parties together.

Grape Ape was 6,000 years old?

Proffesor Jack Rink it seems has no knowledge of Anthropology, and therefore is shouldn't ever be cited as a credible source.

TFA it said that modern man is thought to have come from China. No. It is not thought that. Modern Man first came into exsistence about 10,000 years ago. Due to some research, it is apparent that this "ape" died off about 100,000 years ago, which means *bum bum bum* it doesn't match any of the archeological record. What a bunch of bogus.
 
2005-11-15 11:35:58 PM
Only 10 feet tall? Pffft. This one is over 40 feet high.

 
2005-11-15 11:37:48 PM
Could you imagine the poo they'd fling? it'd be like getting hit in the head with a bowling ball of shiat!!!!

While Dr. Rink may not be a paleoanthropologist, it does appear that he knows a thing or two about dating methodologies:

Might it be (just maybe) that he is working as part of a team?

/not quite sure what their definition of 'modern' man is
//could really care less
 
2005-11-15 11:43:09 PM
Er... I thought modern man invited the flute around 20,ooo years ago.

How is suggesting that they play basketball racist? Almost everyone who is freakishly tall tries to play basketball. Unless you're equating these things with black people in which case I accuse the accusers of being racist. So there.
 
2005-11-15 11:48:56 PM
Well... if early humans were smart they prob didn't live RIGHT alongside the apes.

That would be silly.

Where's Bevets?.

Racist?

Why'd they name it Gigantopithecus Blackii?

(like there aren't big dumb tall white guys in the NBA...as a Warriors fan, I see more than my share.)

CygnusDarius,

I am convinced that Bevets is actual an Cut and Paste AI program run by Fark.com to encourage flamewars.

actually, he is most likely wanking himself with his bible, but who am I to judge?

Uhh, no. Modern man has been around for at least 200,000 years.
