He's not here.

You speak to nothing and no one. I guess you are used to that.

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

I saw that. I think the preliminary finding is that there was 1 species of Humanoid at the time rather than the 2 or three they had been speculating. Interesting stuff.

New dinosaur fossil found in Utah that kept tyrannosaurs from becoming T. rex for millions of years.

“The huge size difference certainly suggests that tyrannosaurs were held in check by carcharodontosaurs, and only evolved into enormous apex predators after the carcharodontosaurs disappeared,” says Makovicky. Zanno adds, “Contemporary tyrannosaurs would have been no more than a nuisance to Siats, like jackals at a lion kill. It wasn’t until carcharodontosaurs bowed out that the stage could be set for the evolution of T. rex.”

I saw this thread had been bumped and assumed it was about the paleo diet. Thrilled it isn't. Thanks for the read.

RE: Paleo story of the week
There are too many camels in the Bible, out of time and out of place.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/11/scienc....html?_r=0

"Camels probably had little or no role in the lives of such early Jewish patriarchs as Abraham, Jacob and Joseph, who lived in the first half of the second millennium B.C., and yet stories about them mention these domesticated pack animals more than 20 times. Genesis 24, for example, tells of Abraham’s servant going by camel on a mission to find a wife for Isaac.

These anachronisms are telling evidence that the Bible was written or edited long after the events it narrates and is not always reliable as verifiable history. These camel stories “do not encapsulate memories from the second millennium,” said Noam Mizrahi, an Israeli biblical scholar, “but should be viewed as back-projections from a much later period.”

The Permian mass extinction happened in the blink of geologic time, 60,000 years.

http://www.livescience.com/43245-permian...pid=556466

90%+ of all living species died off during this period.

My own hypothesis is that God farted too close to earth.

Ancient Fossils Had Heart and Brain
(Chas, maybe War Horse Consider )

"The fossil of an extinct marine predator that lay entombed in an ancient seafloor for 520 million years reveals the creature had a sophisticated heart and blood-vessel system similar to those of its distant modern relatives, arthropods such as lobsters and ants, researchers report today"

Finding Tiktaalik "Your Inner Fish"

Interview and short video of the scientists Neil H. Shubin — paleontologist, molecular biologist, dean and professor of anatomy at the University of Chicago School of Medicine who helped find the transitional fossil and the how and why, a good read and a better video.
