Holy fucking shit.

This thread just hit warp speed into full retard.

Apparently Marco Polo watched natives hunt the T-Rex guys!!! There is absolutely NO WAY it could be an exaggerated description of an alligator. Nope. It's non-refutable proof that everything in the Bible is true and the massive majority of the scientific community doesn't know wtf they're talking about!

The how is it that Marco Polo described a T-Rex in his writings? and other animals supposed to have died off millions of years ago.
If they died off so long ago then how are they able to describe them in detail?

Really? Polo describes a T-Rex and nobody finds anything to refute his writings?
I do find it rather interesting that in school I remember reading his writings but never read his story about the dinosaurs. I wonder why that is not in school text books?
Oh that's right evolution would not work if dinosaurs walked with man. That would mean that the bible might just be right.

The fact that there is no credible evidence to prove his writings is enough to refute it.

Why are the oceans not full of sediment from millions of years of sedimentary runoff? Tectonic movement, compression of sediment to rock, shifting of ocean locations, etc.
Why are there not bones and artifacts everywhere we dig? Conditions have to be pretty close to being just right for fossilization to occur. These conditions are not "everywhere".
Kickstand mentioned about the big bang, where did the stuff come from the big bang? From the same place God came from. I personally don't believe the Big Bang THEORY is correct in it's stance about "everything from nothing. However, there is a boat load of strong evidence that supports the "bang" part if you take the "nothing" away from the theory. Or an invisible, non-interacting man who lives in the sky used his magic God powers to produce the Earth and the other 99.99999999999999999999% of the Universe not mentioned in the Bible other than a "catch all" phrase such as "the heavens"
You cannot get something from nothing. I agree for the most part. There is evidence that says the rules of physics and matter get thrown out the window when matter gets compressed into a Singularity. Read up on Black Holes if you are not sure what a singularity is. The "something from nothing" may be plausible in the screwed up world a singularities/black holes. Science does not have the answer at this point, only an educated guess (theory).

This comes into play with soft tissue being millions of years old. Time itself would break down the tissue and turn to dust.

Laboratory research has shown that the radioactive decay of Carbon-14 occurs in a half-life of 5,73040 years through beta decay that causes the Carbon-14 to revert back to Nitrogen-14. That means that starting with one pound of 100% Carbon-14, half of it would decay in 5,730 years, leaving 50%, or half a pound. Then, in another 5,730 years, a second decay period would occur, leaving one quarter of a pound. The process would continue, halving the amount left every 5,730 years until, theoretically, nothing remained of the original pound.

I want to hear more about T-Rex's being alive in the last 5-600 years...


(Mostly because I just finished reading Jurassic Park for the bazillionth time since 5th grade. I started up on The Lost World as soon as I was done with JP.)

If you're refering to things like that Crusades; yeah, they did. They also were not following the 'love your neighbor' part of the bible.

I think alot of what you think about Christianity is based on what you see in the media. Every single church that I've been to, Every Christian brother I've talked to, have always agreed that we shouldn't force anything on anyone. We should share our faith but most of us know that forcing the issue will not change a thing.

What I do on here is simply explain the world view (that differs greatly from yours) of the majority of Christians. Yet, almost always, I'm told the way I think is wrong and I'M closed minded and I wasn't even saying you have to believe this, merely giving incite into a different perspective. For some, it may be a scary one because they can't wrap their mind around it so they Criticize instead.

As far as controlling people or forcing your own opinions......Everybody does that. You do it, I do it, We ALL do it. As Christians that are United States Citizens, we have the right to voice our opinion on things that we disagree with just like any other group. The difference may be your bias towards us.

At the core belief of the Christian faith Love, Grace, And Mercy should be the champion ideas. There is no Forcing belief on people. Anyone who tries to force their beliefs, Christian or not, is wasting their time. Jesus taught to show the difference by actions. That difference, Which is what brought the multitudes to Jesus, is what we, as Christians, should strive for. Then, once they have noticed that difference and want to know why, we share the gospel.

I honestly think that you have this idea that all Christians are like the westboro baptist people. In reality, most of us are the people that are working right next to you who are striving to live a life that glorifies God.

Got anything other than an unverfiable scribble in a journal from Marco Polo that you found on the interweb?


Why didn't he describe any other dinosaurs?

Do you remember listening to your teacher in school telling the class about explorers that travelled to the new world and the east and all around the world?
They all wrote down in logs that they used to keep track of their journeys.
What would be the need to omit certain writings from the logs?
Especially the writings of dinosaurs because they are not suppose to be here.
There are cave drawings of different dinosaurs from native American Indians and other natives from other parts of the world. If they have been extinct for millions of years then how is it that people could draw pictures of something supposedly extinct for millions of years?

Post of pics of said cave drawings. How about a source for these descriptions of dinosaurs by Marco Polo too?

My school teacher was too busy teaching me facts proven by sound science rather than anecdotes from a book from hundreds of years ago.

Anyone else seeing a common theme here?

I hope that paste job works.

I saw this today and thought to myself "Here is the difference between science and religion, summed up into one nice little package"

While religion does everything it can to search for evidence to prove itself right. Scientific method does the exact opposite, on a daily basis.
