Dinosaurs Where They Shouldn't Be?
Hello all!

Someone posted recently in a secular group I'm part of about an upcoming "seminar" in my area. Basically the guy believes that because certain images kinda look like dinosaurs, humans and dinosaurs must have coexisted. No

This is the sort of thing he is offering as evidence:



I don't have the requisite knowledge to properly debunk this guy. Are people smarter than me able to help articulate an argument?

I don't have the time right now to watch the video, but is this the same old bullshit about dinosaurs supposedly being inscribed on Mayan temples and stuff?

Don't bother watching. I fast forwarded through it. They mention a cave painting, dragons on the Chinese zodiac, carvings on the temple you mentioned, brass inlays from a Bishop's tomb featuring images, and a creature from aboriginal mythology; all of which can easily be explained by anthropologists. It's sad when making up their own shit is easier than consulting what the actual exports know.

It's dogma. The guest states it in the first few minutes. He says " We use the Bible to interpret the evidence...". It is not scientific to require evidence to conform to conclusions.

You can lead a theist to reason, but, you cannot make him think.

... Also, there are engravings of people getting into " rockets" and wearing "space suits with helmets" in the ruins of South/Latin America. They MUST have SEEN them.... right?
This "logic" is highly questionable.

Harwood's an idiot.
He has no training in Paleontology, or Biology, or Geology, or anything even remotely related to what's he's going on about, least of all, ancient Near Eastern Languages and cultures, (ie the Bible). He has a degree in Engineering. He deals with satellites.
He needs to stick to his knitting, and stop making a complete fool of himself.

Yeah cause nobody ever found a Dinosaur fossil before 1800....

If one of my buddies was plowing his field and came across a T-Rex skull you can bet people would be talkin about that dragon all month while they drank their chunky breakfast beers and whatnot.
