Top Ten Scientific Flaws In The Theory of Prehistoric Dinosaurs

...Due to the principles of gravity, mass, and the limitations of muscular anatomy in any life form, it would not be possible for any animal weighing more than 20,803 pounds to be able to lift its own weight (Holden, 1994). However, the Brontosaurus is supposed to weigh over 70,000 pounds, and other so-called sauropods are supposed to be many times larger than that.

Then there is the issue of neck size - a long necked animal of that size would not even be able to lift its neck. Additionally, their blood pressure would be way too high to be able to live. Their heart would literally explode. For reference, a giraffe has a long neck, and even at its relatively tiny size in comparison to sauropods, a giraffe is at essentially the peak of blood pressure that is possible to live, having a higher blood pressure than any other animal...

Can an intelligent person question the “evidence” and “theories” and “conclusions” regarding the religion of evolution without being labeled a conspiracy theorist?

How long is one of God’s days in relation to the length of our days?

Your use of ‘religion shows your bias.

God doesn’t have ‘days’.

Maybe the big ones stayed mostly immersed in water like a hippo or something. The buoyant effect of water could make up for muscle.

Secret Air Sacs Made This Dinosaur Extra Light

Brian Switek
May 22, 2017

The largest dinosaurs to have ever lived were surprisingly light.

I know that might sound strange when we’re talking about animals stretching over 100 feet long and weighing upwards of 45 tons, but it’s true.

Immense, long-necked dinosaurs like Supersaurus had extraordinarily light bones assisted by a complex system of air sacs that so pervaded their skeletons that you can see exactly where they would have been even though the actual soft tissues decayed away millions and millions of years ago.

This was true for comparatively smaller species, too. Even an “average” sauropod was far larger than an African elephant or Paraceratherium, the largest land mammal of all time. Sauropods were enormous by comparison, and air sacs assisted them at all scales.

Not all sauropod had the same complement of air sacs, though. The anatomy and extent of those structures varied from species to species. And, as paleontologist Luci Ibiricu and colleagues report, a South American sauropod named Katepensaurus goicoecheai had a pneumatic variation never seen before.

If you haven’t heard of Katepensaurus before, that’s probably because it was part of a relatively obscure group of sauropods called rebbachisaurids that lived in South America, Africa, and Europe. They were cousins of Diplodocus that were stomping around during the Cretaceous, after the heyday of North American diplodocids was long over. But apparently some of these dinosaurs took pneumatic skeletons to a degree not seen before in other dinosaurs. ...”

Then whats with all the bones that are found? If they couldn’t lift themselves then how did the come into being? Why would they even exist and how did they get to the size we assume them to have been?

The issue about the length of is put to rest by the fact that the vegetation, etc., was created on the third day, while the sun was not created until the fourth. Just how many years can a bush, tree, crop go without the sun? The thousand day argument is used as a guideline for measing time in some prophetic passages, as in the day of the Lord referencing the 1000 reign of Christ on the earth.

It’s curious how civilization is steeped in science, suffused with the result of its practice, and powered by its technology. Yet, when it runs up against the beliefs of some neolithic desert dwellers, it is some massive mistake. One can be forgiven for snickering.

So God is limited in his abilities?

Excellent question. Time is a human construct. Until Adam there was no time, only the passage of events flowing into each other as a river of existence. There was day and night and the changing of the seasons occurring in endless repetition. But there was no time. God exists outside the limitations of time and space. He is infinite with no beginning and no ending. For God time has no meaning. When we refer to a day in God’s time we may be referring to a million or a billions years. Not until God created Adam did time exist. Adam began to count his years once he was banished from Eden.

Fascinating article. The blood pressure argument listed here as always made me a little uneasy. As well, another interesting thing is that if dinosaurs actually did exist, for millions of years, where are all the fossils? - you'd think every time (almost) you walked outside you'd find evidence

Take the example of the Australian rabbit.

There are no Australian rabbits. They're an invasive species.

“The real problem is that there wouldn’t even be enough food for them to eat (not to mention enough fresh water to drink).
Take the example of the Australian rabbit. This tiny animal in relatively large numbers has wreaked havoc on the local environment.”

And yet kangaroos, which are much larger, didn’t.

“In fact, as much as 90% of professors and educational instructors do not actually believe in evolution, but for fear of their job and career they are forced to teach it.”

Said no one.

“The laws of physics and gravity prevents the existence of creatures as massive as dinosaurs. “

No, they don’t.

“You would go gardening and find ten or twenty giant bones every time you tried to plant some seeds.”

Bones don’t decay?

“This means that using radiocarbon dating to say that dinosaurs existed 65 million years ago is like using a thermometer to measure the height of Mount Everest. “

Nobody uses radiocarbon dating on dinosaur fossils.

“If, as they say, dinosaurs roamed the Earth long ago, giant, massive creatures that defied the imagination, dinosaurs would then become the focal point of all of historical mythology.”

Unless dinosaurs went extinct millions of years before humans invented mythology.

“However, no dinosaur skeleton has ever been found. The only few that have been, have long proved to be a hoax.”

Just a direct lie.

“To be more clear, the idea of dinosaurs was first imagined, and then scientists attempted to search for evidence that they existed.”

Actually, fossils were found first, and then scientists tried to explain what they found.

“If such an event occurred as the reason for why dinosaurs “went extinct”, it would not have applied to the deep ocean dinosaurs which would still be there today... The only plausible solution is that they could not have scientifically existed.”

No, it’s not

This guy is such a loser that he should be thrown out of the Creationists Club.

God defines a day in Genesis as one cycle of earth’s rotation in reference to a fixed light source. “And God called the light day, and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
Genesis 1:5

One could say, after working all day, “Then there was dusk, then dawn, ending the first day”.
