I can't bring myself to write very much on this.--Bob_M (talk) 14:29, 2 June 2007 (CDT)

I challenge a creationist to answer this[edit]

If there was a global flood, why are complete dinosaur fossils so rare?We haven't even found one complete velociraptor skeleton yet, unless the dinosaurs never existed which is a valid and just theory--Thedoctor80 (talk) 19:09, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Try this: as the water rained from the sky , it formed small pools which were quite pretty but as it progressed raging torrents of water were reshaping the land, carving out and transporting huge masses of sediment. A slow moving brontosaurus would not be able to climb steep terrain , and so would be swept away by the waters, and hammered with the debris. With many plants having died off , the smaller nimble velociraptors and the even smaller ones would quickly scavange the corpse, anything not ripped apart by he waters would be gnawed off and carried away by other animals. The curious part , is that clams apparently climbed the himalayas since clam shells were found near the top of the mountain. Also the fountains of the great deep were hurling water and fossils to the moon, and any animal that was in the wrong place would have been shredded. Does that help ?

It was a puzzle which God left for us. Furthermore, there are some things we were not meant to know.--BobSpring is sprung! 19:44, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Brontosaurus was never a real dinosaur.The people who 'discovered' it actually found a headless apatosaurus skeleton, but found a camarosaurus skull nearby.They put the camarosaurus skull on the apatosaurus body and called it brontosaurus.--Thedoctor80 (talk) 16:25, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Actually, recent study (2015) seems to suggest that there is in fact a distinction between Brontosaurus and Apatosaurus - http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-brontosaurus-is-back1/ 73.76.94.196 (talk) 08:24, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Creationist (genius) idea[edit]

Creationists believe that the geological column can be explained by animals running from the great flood.They say that the faster animals got to the top, while the slower animals were stuck at the bottom.This is very believable, especially when you consider that glyptodons were found higher up than velociraptor.Glyptodons could easily have run at 100 mph, whilst velociraptor (as its English translation suggests, speedy thief) could only have moved at a snail's pace.--Thedoctor80 (talk) 18:52, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

It's nothing to do with speed and more how "evolved" they appear to be. So we get primitive animals under the better animals (although this confuses the myth that evolution leads to better, faster and large creatures). Not a brilliant nuance, of course, as because it's based on a misconception of evolution we're still likely to see hilariously wrong results for that hypothesis. The more objectionable part of the flood geology explanation for animal ordering is that this explanation would only lead to a statistical tendency for animals to be ordered - so we'd expect fluke occurrences of raptors above glyptodons. However, the fossil record is absolute and no animals are found out of order. Scarlet A.pnggnostic 19:00, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Actual flood geology[edit]

As the entire planet doesn't look like this, I think it's safe to say the entire planet wasn't flooded 4000 years ago. ADK...I'll overthrow your bomb! 18:01, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Great website and proof of a liberal conspiracy[edit]

I just discovered this site. It's a gold mine.

Very interesting was the Birkenhead bottle. This proves that flood geology is not as crazy batshit as it appears.

However there is no evidence that this bottle actually exists on any non-creationist website. I'm sure we can all agree that this eradication of evidence is absolute proof that there is a liberal conspiracy at work here to suppress the TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Voxhumana (talk) 05:53, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

The tags[edit]
