Of course humans lived alongside with dinosaurs. We're living with dinosaurs right now. Just look out your window. See all those chirping things with feathers flying through the air?


Awww.  I was hoping to stretch this one out until the liters got here.  ;-)

Even evolutionists like Jack Horner and Ernst Mayr admit that humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time.  There are a small minority of scientists, like Alan Feduccia and Larry Martin, who deny it, but if you ask most scientists, in private, they will admit that humans and dinosaurs are contemporaries.  The famous evolutionist Jared Diamond has even gone to places like New Guinea in search of living dinosaurs.

Well, if you're noting something like Coelacanth, that's fine, but if you're saying that Jack Horner believes that early humans were hanging out with T-Rexes, well, you sillypants.


The Coelacanth is a fish, not a dinosaur.  Many people have seen dinosaurs, and some even claim to have eaten dinosaur meat, but the media don't talk about it much.  It's an open secret among taxonomists though - they all know.

Srsly. The stuff I love is the research that's been done on African Grey parrots that indicates that some of these birds with brains the size of walnuts have reasoning abilities in the same range as a 4 year old human, including abstraction and language abilities.

If they can do that with that little brain, I find myself seriously wondering what it could do with a brain scaled up in size and complexity to near our own.

Dragons are outliers from the Reptile Empire near the center of the galaxy. Their expeditionary/missionary task-force came to spread Reptile theology and influence. To continue enlarging their Empire, and they  ran into the people of Atlantis and were destroyed. The Atlantean empire was skilled in the the use of Magic and gemstone energies married to highly advanced science. The battle between Reptilian warriors and these 2nd Age humans resulted in devastation that affected the solar system.

Reptilian mercenaries got stranded here when the wormhole used to transit from Galatic central to this solar system collapsed due to a corruption of the Space Time continuum through the weapons used. Those are the dragons of myth and legend. When Atlantis finally used up all the  maya underwiting their use of Ritual magic, a wave of entropy sucked all evidence of both the dragons and Atlantis into nothingness.

On the other hand, Dinosaurs were genetically mutated creatures by the hand of Atlantean bio-genetic sorcerers. For baggage handlers, servants, slaves, warriors, etc. With the empire of Atlantis gone, those dinosaurs left behind mated, mingled blood lines, mated, mingled blood lines for tens of thousands of generations until they died out and we find their bones.  But as with all things based on impossible-to-maintain energies and ideologies the corruption of technology married ritual magic was the final insult Great Gu used to wipe them from the Earth. Dinosaurs and Dragons play a most significant role in the end of the 2nd Age.

Really.

Were/are there "large repitles" that lived contemporaneous with humans?  Sure, the first settlers of Australia had to contend with 15 foot monitor lizard and gaint sea crocodiles.  But Humans and "dinosuars" ?  Nope. Not even physically possible as the atomosphere doesn't have enough oxygen in it anymore to support megafauna of dinosaur size (also why we no longer see 2 ft long dragonflies, for instance)  the era of the dinosuars started 230 million years ago and ended about 65 million years ago.  Humans have only been around for about 2 million years tops, and that's the entire ancestral tree of mankind, homo sapiens much shorter than that.   Put another way, If the entire 4 billions years of earth's history were represented as a single 24-hour day, Dinos  showed up around 10:15pm and left at 11:30 pm.   Humans didn't even show until  up around 11:59.20 pm  or so

Congratulations,  FloydA.

I prefer to call them chicken abortions.


Had a friend in high school who was big into vegetarianism.  One time I asked her, "Hey, if you're a vegetarian, why do you eat eggs?"

"It's ok," she replied, "I also believe in abortion."

(And, no, I wasn't seriously trying to argue the point; I was just messing with her.)

Credit where credit is due, those creationists do have really good imaginations. They manage to come up with some really elaborate fantasies and magical explanations for stuff they don't understand. They'd probably do really well as fantasy novelists, when you get right down to it. I mean, it's really close to what they do already.


You can invent any exhibit at Creation Museum. The only limit is yourself.

If you're going to run a con on religious people, set it at the high price points they're accustomed to paying for nonsense.  A cheap con will cause them to doubt your sincerity (as well as allowing access to the poors, who they try to avoid at all times).
