Scientists Find Evidence of Oldest Dinosaur; Creationists Find Evidence That Scientists Miscalculated By 235 Million Years

_64550912_nyasasaurusprimagehighresfinal 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.


220px-Dino_Harikalar_Diyari_Flintstones_06029_nevitThe 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:

  1. Just a personal niggle: carbon dating cannot be used to determine the age of a dinosaur fossil because it’s only valid to about 60,000 years.

    Rock strata are dated using a variety of different radioisotopic methods and then fossils found in the strata can be dated (though it isn’t quite as simple as that).

  2. As I recall, Pat Robertson threw cold water on the 6000 year old earth idea. This dino has been dated at 235 million years ago. Isn’t that just about the same as Robertson’s age? Perhaps his pooh-poohing derives from him knowing this creature personally.

  3. It should be noted these are not the oldest fossils on record. There were many types of complex life that lived in the earlier Permian period (~300 to 253 million years ago). Turtles, lizards, insects, fungi, primitive early relatives of dinosaurs called archosauriformes and a type of mammal like reptiles called synapsids all lived in the Permian period. Synapsids were the largest creatures of the Permian and they evolved from amniotes (four limbed spinal egg producing creatures), which produced not only synapsids (our forerunners) but sauropsids (the forerunners of dinosaurs). The oldest fossils known are not animals or even plants but rather bacteria dated to 3.4 billion years ago.

  4. Lewis Black is a superb, professional comedian, one of the best out there. Bill Maher is a professional smirker.

  5. nick,

    You may be surprised, but we agree on the Black/Maher divide. Lewis Black is a comedic genius. He crafts an excellent joke. Bill Maher is a paid smartass. It makes him a passable talk show host, but his stand up isn’t even in the same ZIP code as Black’s. Then again, some like Coke, some like Pepsi.

  6. hopefully an archeologist will coincidently find a bible buried next to a stegosaurus fossil so it will prove in some odd way to these evangelists the earth is 5 billion years old.

    Too bad some orthodox monk 1800 years ago didn’t write a bible with a picture of a large explosion in space along with the caption “13 billion years ago, God said ‘Let there be light.’ and there was the big bang, And the big bang beget light, and it was good. And the light beget photons, neutrinos, and quarks, and the quarks beget protrons, and the protrons beget elements, and this too was good.”

  7. To keep the blind sheep dumb and dumber requires a lot of hard work in faith. Eventually, it may cure one’s acute constipation if one tries a bit harder to keep on embracing the 6000 year old myth.

  8. It does not matter how old the fossils.are. Before the fall of humanity there was no death. When sin was introduced the devil could have made animals that died back them look extremely old. We changed rapidly too from being a being of light to beings that are dark inside. Eternal peace does not begin with bickering.

    Jonathan, this is nothing but your personal religious gibberish. It only affects people like you who believe in this nonsense. Torment is the only way you are able to survive in your fear,anger and hatred based faith.

    What a shame!

  11. I knew I should have stayed in bed today.

    hell the poop is even trying to look like JESUS on his tweet side.

    but if a politician is misleading you on a political issue I let them.

    isn’t it amazing how many republicans claimed god, gods will and intervention in the last presidential election. while on other sites I posted that putin, and obama would be.

  12. Teji Malik People that make piss, and shit out of Gods gifts will have the equivalent coming out of their mouth like I hear coming out of your mouth. I want to give life ending oppression of people oppressed by religions. How then can I be religious? Religious people wanted Jesus dead arresting Jesus wanting worse to occur to him. It just so happens that the Sodomites wanted worse to occur to lot. Gays, zoosexuals, and Pedo’s don’t want worse for anyone. That means sodomites were religious too . You have been told lies. You swallowed them hook line, and sinker. That makes the military, and legal system the institutions that are religious. The KJV itself condemns religious people. Mark 14:1-9 , John 12;10, All they had on their minds is what the military has on their mind, and what the state has on its mind endorsing the death penalty, and supporting jails. Church, and state are in spirit the same. That is the hard truth. Jesus is outside of religion. Religion to Jesus is a reed shaking in the wind. I have Jesus in me no being connected to any religious institution or name with religions being against me. How can I be what is against me?

  13. Teji, just suppose johnathan is right? Then What? Unless maybe your the light to the blind? You aught to respect the opinions of others and learn not to be so truculent–have a dictionary?

  14. Wow I thought the “Creationist Museum” was just some joke somebody thought up; I didn’t know it was real. WOWSA!

    Grown men and women work full-time there? (At least it keeps them off the street I guess.) Does the funding come from some church?

    How come dinosaurs have “cute” moves? Were they really cute?

  15. @ Jonathon. Thanks for some more load of nonsensical gibberish and introducing your family members to me.:-)

    @John. Thanks for flaunting your ignorance. Being right is NOT a supposition but based on empirical facts. Your fiendish word does not fit in your post. Use dictionary for help.:-)

  16. The gates of heaven are the gates of hell to evil people not being like Jesus is. Why is the truth not spoken? The people republicans whoever thinking God out there does not have God in them. Devils think of God as being out there because a devil will never have God in them.

  17. Discussing things, even in a passionate or heated way, is not “bickering.” To call it “bickering” is to downgrade the idea of intellectual (and sometimes “more or less intellectual”) discourse to a simple matter of one side arguing against what is obviously right while the other side valiantly tries to uphold proper thinking and obedience to all that is right and good.

    Jesus of Nazareth certainly did a lot of what is now being viewed as “bickering” and often his view was radically different from the “correct” view at the time. And that’s OK. We should continue to discuss stuff without resorting to death on the cross (or other similar conversation stoppers).

  18. “In our current political science, it is Palinotologists who control key congressional committees and school boards.”

    lol. good one.

  19. I am the light to the blind with the light of world inn me. The dictionary is sodomistic and Gomorrahean in nature. I can show you in a multitude of ways.
    The devil is the fallen angel Lucifer. Had Satan show up looking like the artwork depicting him would fool no one. Satan in person can look externally like God in his glory. People that war jail arr set hold grudges hate get revenge follow the devil in spirit. Have him show up before our eyes, and things would get really bad. Not to do what the devil does bad now will render that being helpless when he shows up with human eyes seeing him.

Lot does not let them. The Sodomite gets hungry, and threatens lot. The angel pulls lot back into the house. You want the same worse for the zoosexual being like the sodomite.

    Take the time to read http://kingjbible.com/isaiah/1.htm Sex is not said to be refrained from at all. How then can anal sex be sodomy? Animals in the wild, and domestic do that not sinning. All kinds of sex occurs. Looking around you should be evidence of that.

That light makes the earth to have no more sea making elements melt, and consumes the wicked around the city of God Rev, 20, 9 Hell is not a place. No lost no lake of fire. Gods light is good to those that love to do good.

  21. Jonathan Hughes.

    More nonsense and gibberish coming from you, It shows that you are not a thoughtful person but I am enjoying the way you flaunt your ignorance. Please carry on, you parrot with the ugly plumage.:-)

  22. Go to Sodahead with the title: Do you take the Bible literately? In other words: Doe you believe all there is written? You will see a list I have written .!4 at this time. Kobidobidog

  23. and when GOD got tired of watching all their sacrifices HE sent JESUS to prepare the way TO GOD…

    the only way to call a jew a schmuck in THE BIBLE is to call him uncircumcised. so a little prick would be called circumcised. then the bares came out of the woods.

  24. Teji Malik What I say is not your accusation. The devil likes spouting accusations with a smile. You can resist him you know. it is possible. When you do I will see it. When you no longer harbor that guy in you I will praise you. Ugly people say what, good words? .You are not saying good words. Your soul needs to be purified.

  25. Teji Malik Jesus taught, Jesus wanted to guide people unto everlasting life . Had Jesus be a bickerer he would have been like his accusers. He is not like his accusers. Jesus is always correct. He says hard words to those that do not know what he is saying. The spirit in whoever will not see what Jesus says as hard words. The death on the cross is even incorrect. Jesus voluntarily gave up his soul. He did not have to face the devils jail. He did it voluntarily. I see h beyond human sight.

  26. Why there is war is because Jesus, and God are thought of being separate. Jesus said to Phillipe he that has seen me has seen the Father. Thomas said my Lord, and my God. How clearer can I Get.

  27. And by Him were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible. whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by HIM, and for HIM: and HE is before all things, and by HIM all things consist…

    means there is a dinosaur in Heaven called a eatshitiffeeseesasoreass and that should be taught in all the schools. after all the state let them build against GOD and the touch down Jesus burning that so many refused to call an act of GOD. to change nothing is violated by politicians everyday. people find ways to exploit everything I do to put money in their own pockets, and they will say anything to do it!

  28. “There are bigger fish to fry in society today…don’t ya think?”

    Some but not many.

    Wilful scientific ignorance puts the U.S. at a competitive disadvantage with impacts economics and ultimately national security.

  29. Speaking about science and ignorance, shocking news on modern food:

    http://www.willamettelive.com/2012/news/corporate-giant-comes-out-against-gmos/?t=Corporate+Giant+Comes+Out+Against+GMOs

    “GMOs have been added to our food supply since 1994, but most people don’t know it because the United States does not require labeling of GMOs,” according to the newsletter.

    Sounding like a radical organic health proponent, the huge corporate Kaiser continued, “Despite what the biotech industry might say, there is little research on the long-term effects of GMOs on human health.”

    Independent studies have shown GMOs to cause organ damage in rats and the inability to reproduce, the Kaiser article said. Kaiser gave tips on how its members can avoid GMOs, including buying organic, looking for the “Non-GMO Project Verified” seal and to download the “ShopNoGMO” app.

    Since corporations are required, by definition, to augment their bottom line, we think Kaiser’s efforts to encourage GMO avoidance for the members for whose health costs they must (sometimes!) pay – is telling.”

  30. how true, there are bigger fish to fry. but all joking aside, if you were god and no politician would listen to you, and they will ruin everything in thirity years because every clergy mocks your words, what do you tell the world.

    like the bible says do not judge a man unless you walked in his shoes.

    there are politicians who try the food stamp challenge for a week just to tell voters that they did it. try it for years and see the difference in the laws they would make.

    remember the bible tells you what to do, and if the politicians do not follow GOD they follow any religion that sounds good, just look at the world. they will lose in thee end.

    have a good knight, and smile!

  31. … you tell them it may be a coincidence just so you don’t have to argue with them but, know that someone wanted a sign. those that wanted the sign will now call it a coincidence. so now they lead your polticians the other way again.
    since the politician was told by a theorist that coincidence is a word in the bible the politician goes home and sleeps well. so as usual satan wins.

    by the way, this is also one of the memorial days in THE BIBLE that are to be announced later. it is not just Pearl Harbor Day. there are two days in this month that are more important than christmas. coined as coincedence, they are already holidays, and extraordinarily Christian. if they want to follow GOD, I listen to WZTC when I listen to the radio, and yes, I sent WZTC a letter a few months ago complementing them on their work. they are located Rite smack dab in THE PROMISED LAND.

  32. Not sure what happened there, but if you are confident that the modern dating methods i.e. radiometric dating is accurate, skip to about 13:48 in the above video. He throws a big wrench in the works of radiometric dating.

  33. Hubert, I am not sure what you are smoking, but to rely on a creationist for scientific explanations ranks somewhere between denial and delusional. Radiometric dating is based on the decay of uranium into lead. It is an inexorable process, not affected by temperature, pressure or other environmental factors. Uranium 238 has a half life of 4.47 billion years and Uranium 237 has a half life of 704 million years. Those numbers enable dating back to the beginning of the universe, about 14.6 billion years ago, +/- 1.7 Gyr.

    Carry on.

  34. “Hubert, I am not sure what you are smoking, but to rely on a creationist for scientific explanations ranks somewhere between denial and delusional.”

    Ad hominem. I’m smoking something because I’m daring to question something held sacred and inerrant? That makes me in denial and delusional? Realize that the alleged “age of the earth” has increased exponentially only over the past few decades. So what you hold dear to your heart as correct today will be wrong in a few years. Now, who is being delusional?

    ” It is an inexorable process, not affected by temperature, pressure or other environmental factors.” Oh. Even volcanic eruptions? A volcanic rock that is formed TODAY will date to be billions of years old. Oh, I guess that was a contaminated sample. That’s a good excuse.

    Take the Uinkaret lava flows for example – Potassium Argon aged the rock from 10,000 years to 117 million years. Rubidium strontium test aged the rock from 1.27 billion years to 1.39 billion years. Lead-lead dating method aged the rock as 2.6 billion years. Rubidiam Strontium Isochron aged the rock as 1.34 billion years old. (The latter is supposed to be the “Holy Grail” of radio dating methods, by the way) So what do we have here – there’s a spread of ages from 10,000 years to 2,600,000,000. That makes a factor of 260,000 years! So which one is correct? Would you go with the “Holy Grail” of radiometric dating that says 1,340,000,000 years old? OOPS – I forgot to mention that Indian pottery and artifacts were found that dated the rocks as 800-1,000 years old.

    There are always strange abnormalities like this, where the difference is millions or billions of years. That’s a HUGE margin of error. We commonly hear the samples were contaminated. But that excuse comes up a lot when the numbers don’t fit the preconceived notions. So what if the earth wasn’t billions of years old. That would fall inside the HUGE margin of error we see with our best of the best modern dating methods.

    Folks it isn’t as cut and dry as some of these “scientists” would lead you to believe. There can be HUGE abnormalities that should be addressed, but aren’t.

    Now, who is delusional? Oh, maybe you are smoking something. Or both.

  35. Humbert,

    If you’re so convinced physics is wrong, why not put your faith to the test and jump off a cliff?

    Because in denying radiometric dating, you are denying physics as surely as if you said “I don’t believe in gravity.”

  36. “If you’re so convinced physics is wrong” – never said physics was wrong

    “Because in denying radiometric dating, you are denying physics as surely as if you said “I don’t believe in gravity.”

    I’m denying the accuracy of the dating and I’m suggesting that people shouldn’t blindly accept it as fact when there have been countless examples where it’s shown to be inaccurate. Furthermore, it looks extremely foolish for those chiding people’s references to the Bible about the age of the earth, when they have no idea how old the earth actually is.

    Never denied physics, or gravity.

    Your misguided responses remind me of this analogy…

    Guy #1 – Vegetables are good for you
    Guy #2 – you are so stupid, if you eat a whole truckload of vegetables, you would die
    Guy #1 – I didn’t say to eat a whole truckload
    Guy #2 – See, you hate pepperoni pizza!
    Guy #1 – *&#@^*???

    1. Exaggerate your opponent’s statement into an absurd absolute.
    2. Make an inappropriate analogy.
    3. Change the topic to something easier to defend.
    4. Claim victory

  37. There are no instances where radiographic dating has been shown to be accurate. It works precisely because radioactive decay happens at a known measurable rate. That’s science fact.

  38. Gene,
    Typo. I think you meant inaccurate.

    As I said before, the tests are based on science, not faith. In any sample of almost anything, it is possible to find outliers. When those are fully investigated, the bad data can always be traced to a contaminated sample, instruments not properly calibrated, or just outright screwups in the lab.

    Radioisotopes decay at known rates. That is an immutable law of physics. Radioactive decay is not subject to temperature fluctuations, pressure variations or gravitational pull. Or because a bearded shepherd misinterpreted some natural phenomenon and wrote his misinterpretation in a book two or three thousand years ago.

  39. When my kid was little I took him to a museum and got him a souvenir, a trilobite which was apparently 250 million years old (give or take). He insisted on unwrapping it in the car where I asked him not to, and he dropped the little thing, and it got lost, and now it’s gonna be another two, three million years before it gets found again. Then some scientists are gonna say that the car dump where that Plymouth Horizon was buried was 253 million years old, and the religious nuts will win the whole argument. ALL BECAUSE LITTLE BOYS DON’T LISTEN!

  40. “There are no instances where radiographic dating has been shown to be accurate. It works precisely because radioactive decay happens at a known measurable rate. That’s science fact.”

    One GLEAMING example was one found in the video, and I’d recommend watching his other videos. The lava flows were dating anywhere from 10,000 years old to 2,600,000,000 years old. The most accurate dating method that we use today, the rubidium-strontium isochron aged the rock as 1.34 billion years old. The PROBLEM was that in that sedimentary layer, there was remains of an Indian village that dated the layer to only 800 – 1,000 years old. The first thing a scientist would say is that the dating method isn’t accurate for dates very recent such as 800-1,000 years. (!) So that is admittance that IF the earth is relatively young, all our dating methods (the best of the best even) are not accurate. Hmmm. Interesting. And of course, someone would say the sample was contaminated. (but they ran several different tests – all came up wrong).

  41. “As I said before, the tests are based on science, not faith. In any sample of almost anything, it is possible to find outliers. When those are fully…”

    Otteray, one thing that is interesting is when you have something dated, they will first ask several different questions – where did you get the sample, what layer of the strata was it found in, has it been contaminated, do you have multiple samples in order to rule out contamination. So before they even start, they will try to form a “best guess” – READ FAITH (you guys talk like faith is a bad thing, but it is impossible for anyone to live without faith). Then they will go through the procedure to come up with a date (one that also would try to fit the disclaimers). In other words, they will shoe-horn the data to fit preconceived notions.

    “Radioisotopes decay at known rates. That is an immutable law of physics. Radioactive decay is not subject to temperature fluctuations, pressure variations or gravitational pull…”

    Again, you might want to look that up. There are several factors that can “screw up” our best of the best dating methods. Aside from contamination (which seems to be a favorite “EXCUSE”) one explanation can be found on a quick wikipedia search (since it seems to be a popular source) that the rock must not have undergone any metasomatism, or AHEM… disturbed with HEAT or chemically.

    ” Or because a bearded shepherd misinterpreted some natural phenomenon and wrote his misinterpretation in a book two or three thousand years ago.”

    Amusing – bearded shepherd. I see what you did there. That was a good one! Misinterpretation in a book two or three thousand years. Funny you should poke fun at those bearded guys, because they seemed to have beat our “modern scientific discovery” of things like the mid oceanic currents (search Matthew Maury), freshwater springs at the bottom of the ocean (discovered in the early 70’s I believe, or should I say REDISCOVERED), or the extremely slow orbit of the sun where just recently scientists thought the sun was at a fixed point in space.

    Wonder how all those bearded shepherds manage to figure all that out so long ago. Must have been divine inspiration!

    At least you didn’t call them illiterate. I had to ask someone that said that once – if they were illiterate, how did they write their letters? I didn’t get a response.

  42. “…Plymouth Horizon was buried was 253 million years old, and the religious nuts will win the whole argument. ALL BECAUSE LITTLE BOYS DON’T LISTEN!”

    I guess those scientists that still implement the old tried and true methods of science and still question the outcome happen to come out right more than those nutjobs that call people of faith “religious nuts”. Maybe that’s why they are called all those pet names and attacked with so many strawman arguments.
