nmrsnr: Or the Jurassic Park curators weren't looking to resurrect only species that roamed the Earth at the same time, and just said "fark it, I wanna T. Rex."

Also, not really relevant, but it amuses me:

0per: ummm.. it's fiction.

yknow like how many of the Star Wars characters were humans despite the fact that humans wouldn't exist for a long, long time to come; in a galaxy far, far away.


We don't really know that they were human they just look human. Maybe Luke Sky-walker was a Time Lord....

The Pope of Manwich Village: After watching Jack Horner's TED presentation on shape-shifting dinosaurs, when I see stories about a "new dino discovery," I automatically wonder if what they found is a known species, only bigger/smaller, more/less mature, etc.


You should also automatically wonder how full of shiat Jack is.

According to some random geek or nerd on the web (and who would know better?), the velociraptor is about the size of a large turkey. The super-smart monster killer animals in Jurassic Park are something else. Literally something else. They are the much larger and harder to pronounce deinonychus.

This is confirmed by another geek or nerd:

Wha t the real velociraptor

may have looked like

If you saw one you would think,

"What a strange bird!",

not "OMG! We are all going to die!"

Looks like a road-runner, but it's twice as

dangerous unless you are a coyoté,

in which case it will kill you a

thousand times, like a coward

MassAsster: Pointy Tail of Satan: I'm sure these lived just a few thousand years ago. The writers of the Bible just overlooked writing about these 30 foot tall rampaging carnivores.

obviously someone cut the part about jesus taking a dino by the balls, strapping a saddle on that bad boy and riding it into town. wasnt thought to be important to translate over


So there was this guy who went back in time, right, but the technology has a limit:  You can only got back for 1 hour, 32 minutes, and 17.34 seconds*.  So he decides that he's going to go back to the time of Jesus.  So he sets the dial, jumps in, and is transported back.  And he's amazed to see dinosaurs living in Jerusalem just 2,000 years ago!  They were being kept as beasts of burden.  So, anyway, he wants to meet Jesus, so he keeps asking around until someone points him to a nondescript (and rather Middle-Eastern looking) young man sitting down next to a saddled Chasmosaurus.  He introduces himself and they chat for a bit about the true meaning of Jesus' teachings, until the man remembers he has a time limit.  So he asks Jesus if he knows what time it is (habits are hard to break).  So Jesus grabs the Chasmosaur by his big old sweaty dino balls, lifts them a bit, and says "Oh, about 12:30".

The guy was stunned:  "That's amazing, how can you tell time like that?"

"Oh, it's simple.  You grab the dinosaur by the balls, lift them up, and you see that sundial on the wall over there...."


*Don't ask.

I think you'll find that when the Death Star exploded it sent genetic material hurtling through space. A long long time later, it reached a galaxy far away, and landed on Earth. It's common sense really, when you think about it.

Did they at any point claim that the name was chosen to fit the time period of the animals? Or because its cool?

Six Flags Magic Mountain is neither magic nor mountain. Discuss.
