Those crazy secularists (and Pat Robertson) are at it again. While creationists (including many of our elected officials) insist that the Earth is roughly 6,000 years old because the Bible says it is, paleontologists continue to put their radioisotopic data before biblical passages in estimating the age of fossils. The scientists claim to have found the world’s oldest dinosaur, which they claim walked the Earth 235 million years ago.
The species, Nyasasaurus parringtoni, has been linked to fossils 10-15 million years before the previous earliest dinosaur specimens. It seems remarkably similar to Fred Flintstone’s pet, Dino. (Yes, this is my only contribution to this scientific breakthrough). Nyasasaurus parringtoni walked on two legs, measured 2-3m in length with a large tail and weighed between 20 and 60kg.
What is interesting is that the fossils were actually found over 80 years ago but only recently analyzed.
Of course, they will be exposed as soulless secularists as was Bill Nye “The Science Guy” in attempting to portray the Earth as more than 6,000 years old. In our current political-religious environment, it is Palinotologists who control key congressional committees and school boards.
Palinotologists long ago discovered and actually captured Nyasasaurus parringtoni on film in its natural habitat:
