Skip to comments.T. Rex Cousin Evolved 60 Million Years Too Early
Posted on 09/29/2009 10:10:39 AM PDT by GodGunsGuts
The most popular dinosaur is probably Tyrannosaurus rex, a Latin term that loosely translates as king lizard. Based on evolutionary assumptions, scientists have long held that these dinosaurs lived for only 3 million years, approximately 68 to 65 million years ago. A fossil looking remarkably like a small version of T. rex, however, has been located in a much lower rock layer. Using the evolutionary dates assigned to the relevant strata, this adds 60 million years to the T. rex timeline. If the evolutionary interpretation was this wrong about one creature, can it be trusted on the rest of the fossil record?...

Evolution can’t explain a cell.
The fossil record doesn’t say the first word about the antiquities of dinosaur types, that’s all based on assumptions.
Stop the presses. New discovery proves old ASSUMPTIONS are incorrect. Who ever heard of such a thing?
Nothing like having a minor problem in evolutionary theory cause much bigger problems for your Young Earth theory.
You would be wrong.
No “evolutionary assumption” is required to date fossils.
Oh my gosh, how so simple an argument ends the debate.
Still doesn’t explain how Jesus and Moses managed to ride those huge suckers.
Intricate cellular components are often cited as evidence of intelligent design. They couldnt have evolved, I.D. proponents say, because they cant be broken down into smaller, simpler functional parts. They are irreducibly complex, so they must have been intentionally designed, as is, by an intelligent entity.
But new research comparing mitochondria, which provide energy to animal cells, with their bacterial relatives, shows that the necessary pieces for one particular cellular machine exactly the sort of structure thats supposed to prove intelligent design were lying around long ago. It was simply a matter of time before they came together into a more complex entity.
You might want to update your talking points.
Plants and animals have two different types of cells. I learned this in biology in 1999. Plants have a rectangular box shape, humans have a round shape.
How could all the parts of a cell have evolved the way they did, to work in synchronicity with everything else?
There is no scientific way to date fossils.Even if RC dating and heavy metal isotope dating schemes actually worked which they don’t, rc dating is useful only to around 50K years and the others wouldn’t apply to fossils since there’s no way to claim you’d ever find lead, uranium, strontium, or rubidium or any such in fossil remains.
Nice try. The Bible never once indicates that dinos were ever domesticated. Indeed, the Bible seems to indicate quite the opposite...namely, that even those humans who were considered mighty were quite terrified of what are almost certainly descriptions of dinosaurs:
15 Look now at the behemoth, which I made along with you;
He eats grass like an ox.
16 See now, his strength is in his hips,
And his power is in his stomach muscles.
17 He moves his tail like a cedar;
The sinews of his thighs are tightly knit.
18 His bones are like beams of bronze,
His ribs like bars of iron.
19 He is the first of the ways of God;
Only He who made him can bring near His sword.
20 Surely the mountains yield food for him,
And all the beasts of the field play there.
21 He lies under the lotus trees,
In a covert of reeds and marsh.
22 The lotus trees cover him with their shade;
The willows by the brook surround him.
23 Indeed the river may rage,
Yet he is not disturbed;
1 Can you draw out Leviathan with a hook,
Or snare his tongue with a line which you lower?
2 Can you put a reed through his nose,
Or pierce his jaw with a hook?
3 Will he make many supplications to you?
Will he speak softly to you?
4 Will he make a covenant with you?
Will you take him as a servant forever?
5 Will you play with him as with a bird,
Or will you leash him for your maidens?
6 Will your companions make a banquet of him?
Will they apportion him among the merchants?
7 Can you fill his skin with harpoons,
Or his head with fishing spears?
8 Lay your hand on him;
Remember the battle
Never do it again!
9 Indeed, any hope of overcoming him is false;
Shall one not be overwhelmed at the sight of him?
10 No one is so fierce that he would dare stir him up.
Who then is able to stand against Me?
Thanks for the ping!
