Please learn what evolution is and how it works (from people who study it, not people who are refuting it with bad faith methods) before pontificating on it. There are so many factual problems within those twenty quoted words that I wouldn't know where to begin, except to say that evolution is a gradual process that occurs over successive generations to entire populations, not to individual life forms.

Your above statement would be like me trying to debate wave propagation. I don't know anything about it and I shouldn't have an opinion on how factual or proven anything regarding it is.

Rmember when I said this?

"None of those newspaper clippings cites any papers. None of them cite experts who have independently verified the claim. That's because newspapers are poor sources of scientific information, they always have been, and they continue to be poor sources today. National Geographic, Washington Post, a New York Times article from 1904, these aren't good sources of scientific information."

I really meant it. National Geographic also ran a story on Archaeoraptor, which was an obvious hoax, and ironic since part of that fossil really was part of an Archaeopteryx.

Anyway the entire national geographic article seems based on jaw and tooth fragments, which means that if we ever found a skeleton, their bones would likely be thicker proportionally than that of a human. (For reasons already made very clear)

In fact, I don't even need to find an ancient source for that. Gorillas if they were to stand erect (as in, like we do) would be taller, and they are certainly heavier. Naturally, if we look at their femur, what does it look like?

http://www.boneclones.com/images/sc-028-f-lg.jpg

Again and again, large bipeds can't have thin bones. Gorillas certainly aren't the size of a T-rex, nor apparently does that national geographic article say that ape was anything the size of King Kong.

If it WAS, it seems pretty obvious to predict that if we find a skeleton of it, the skeleton wouldn't look like a human, and the bone would have to be much thicker than the one next to your old man for it to support a large biped's weight.

Again and again you're going to have to face the realization that for a large biped you can't have a bone structure that looks like a human's. Human femurs are weak and small and thin. That won't work for large creatures, which tend to have thicker bones, and ESPECIALLY won't work for large bipeds, which have quite chunky bones.

It seems very hard to believe that the old man is standing next to a bone of a large biped.

Tearing down other people's research is part of the scientific method! That's why peer-review journals exist. It's the part of the scientific method that uses human flaws to its advantage, instead of trying to neutralize them. Everyone wants to be right and prove the other guy wrong (okay, not everyone, but lots of folks do.) If your methodology is solid and your conclusions logical, nobody will be able to refute you, no matter how much they want to. And they want to, real bad. Science isn't a club where everyone boos and laughs at the guy with the weird ideas, because if that research turns out to be really compelling they all look like dolts.

Present your evidence and methods, and other scientists will go over your research with a fine-toothed comb, looking for mistakes and faulty assumptions. They'll try to replicate your experiments if they have the means. Nobody takes anyone's word for anything in science. Only those who can't substantiate their claims rail against this part of the scientific method and whine about being bullied or ignored. Your research will totally get smacked down if it sucks.

As an example, cosmologist Lawrence Krauss "betted against" (his words) the existence of the Higgs Boson. When it was demonstrated to exist he didn't shit all over the news. He enthusiastically accepted it and began incorporating it into his models. And that's not remarkable; it happens all the time as a matter of course.


Just because anthropologists and scientist want to prove evolution so bad they dismiss everything else doesnt mean its not true.


All of the evidence points toward evolution. Evolution is not a theory. It's a fact. The theory of evolution by natural selection is an explanation of how the fact of evolution works. A theory is the highest level of substantiation such an explanation can aspire to. In science nobody uses the word "proof" within a formal context, though they may use it colloquially. They use the word "support," and evolution is one of the most well-supported ideas in all of science because the evidence for it is abundant and overwhelming.

JuJuRoll, stop. Just stop. If you had actually seen the show, you should know that Titans aren't just scaled-up humans. They lack a digestive system, they're lighter than their mass would suggest, and they evaporate when they die.

And also,

Going by your logic, vampires are real too because they're freaking everywhere in world mythology.

Oh and Bill Clinton didn't inhale. Its funny how every single ancient civilization can write things that people don't believe in today but they believed them back then. So the same people who wrote these things back then wrote the historical timeline we are taught in school today, we believe in that though. (Sheeple) and closed minded people get nowhere.

The ancient Egyptians were advanced in the areas of architecture and medicine. Most of them still believed a dung beetle pushed the sun across the sky.

If people are so smart explain this picture and what this so called alien gray is doing in a ancient sumerian artifact. There are tons of things in artifacts that can't be explained by archaeologists .

I'm not an ancient Sumerian, so I couldn't tell you the finer points of their iconography. How do you know that's an alien and not a decorative tip?

Wow... Are you seriously trying to use the argument-from-ignorance fallacy to support your case?
And anyways, it is probably the same as the rest of the creatures on that artifact -- a fairytale creature.

Is this ancient sumerian/others decorative tip? I guess ancient cultures like to put aliens in there artifacts. There is so much more you have to do your research like Ive said before. This isn't even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to ancient artifacts.



Ancient Sumerian


This is Aborigine


This is ancient Asian



This is Mayan

Pareidolia.

I don't see any aliens in any of these images. I've never seen an alien so I have nothing to compare them to.

These are the same images past and present for those who have seen them and worked with them. Not just ordinary citizens but military personnel and private scientists who worked for the government, So all these people are liars, so the people in the ancient past and present are liars and just making stuff up?

On Wednesday, May 9th, 2001, over twenty military, intelligence, government, corporate and scientific witnesses came forward at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to establish the reality of UFOs or extraterrestrial vehicles, extraterrestrial life forms, and resulting advanced energy and propulsion technologies. The weight of this first-hand testimony, along with supporting government documentation and other evidence, will establish without any doubt the reality of these phenomena.
