Default Re: Dinosaur Hoax - Dinosaurs Never Existed!

Let's take a closer look at these points made :

Quote:
The following issues raise red flags as to the integrity of the dinosaur industry and cast doubts as to whether dinosaurs ever existed.
Only in the minds of brainwashed Christians.

Quote:
1. Nature of dinosaur discoveries - only within the last 150 years and in huge unusual concentrated quantities going against the laws of nature and probability.
The creation of fossils only occurs under fairly specific environmental circumstances. This is why fossils tend to be highly concentrated in certain areas and very uncommon in otder areas.

Dinosaur bones have been found throughout history. Before the development of paleontological science, such bones were just believed to come from dragons or other mythical beings, large mammals, etc.

Quote:
2. Nature of dinosaur discoverers and excavators - not by (initially) disinterested parties. When discovered by parties without a vested interest, they need to be told by dinosaur experts that they are dinosaur bones.
If I give you a piece of ore, it will also require you to see an expert to determine what kind of ore it is. If I give you a vile of blood, it will also require you to see an expert to determine what species the blood comes from. Laymen only have a limited understanding of nature and the universe, which is precisely why science exists in the first place.

Quote:
3. Nature of public display preparation - integrity and source of fossils - possible tampering and bone substitution and possible fraudulent activities on a massive scale.
Some tampering did occur and has been exposed as such. There may be some examples that haven't been exposed yet, but the fossil record is just too large and significant to be a forgery as a whole.

Quote:
4. Existing artistic drawings and public exhibits showing off-balance and awkward postures that basic physics would rule out as being possible.
As science developed, drawings became more accurate and realistic.

Quote:
5. Very low odds of all these dinosaur bones being fossilized but not the bones of other animals.
Vast numbers of fossils of various species have been found, both from before and after the dinosaur age.

Quote:
6. Implications of dinosaur discoveries to the theory of evolution and the belief that man was created in God's image, suggesting possible hidden and subtle political or religious agendas served on a naive and unsuspecting public.
It only suggest the hidden and subtle political or religious agendas of those refusing to accept evolution as a fact of nature. Anyone who believes the idea that man was created in God's image is anything but a silly, childish and arrogant fantasy should get his head checked.

Quote:
7. A lack of organizations and people questioning or being skeptical of each and every discovery and public display. Dinosaurs are popular.
There is a lack of such organisations anywhere besides the Bible Belt because the belief that "evolution theory" is a conspiracy to attack Christianity and that dinosaurs are a myth is so ridiculous only the most brainwashed Christians can take it seriously.
