Dear Steve,I'm amused by the statement that these running speeds 'are the most accurate they have to-date. I would ask, "Compared to what?"

Hi All,Just while we’re touching upon the topic of dinosaurs, I would like to say I was once a very big hobbyist concerning them, collecting vast quantities of secular data and both reading and learning it avidly. But, times haves changed rathRe: [geocentrism] Re: Evolutioner substantially, I was significantly younger then and I’ve grown in spirit concerning God. The following statement I hope is not too radical, but I have come to question many of the species labeled as "dinosaurs" entirely. After all, how many of you have actually seen a real fossilized dinosaur skeleton? The answer is probably none, since almost every museum has only plaster casts on display. This all suggests a rather large mass conspiracy, but how do the skeletons look so realistic you ask? It’s often mooted in the secular world that birds descended the evolutionary path from dinosaurs, why do they believe such? It’s simple, because many dinosaur fossils have similar structures to birds. Could this not be because the plastercasts are really based upon birds in the first place. Meet the real Tyrannosaurus rex, probably an enlarged chicken skeleton, with a massive skull and tail added plus two pointless little arms. This, iconic and typical “ultimate” monster is so similar to those "classic" beasts and dragons dreamed up by man’s imagination that perhaps it is only an element of the imagination. And don’t be fooled into thinking this 5-7 tonne beast is an agile hunter, because it does have some serious flaws with it’s morphology. The balancing act required for that huge skull, the pointless little arms which can’t even pick teeth and even the art of getting up after sleeping are all a bit suspicious. Computer models have demonstrated I believe that this is not an easy balancing act. Any beast seeing the site of those teeth coming along would be away as fast as lightning, making hunting nearly impossible, don't believe 35 mph, sorry, even modern results are showing 17.9 mph at best.

Many museums of the 19th century put abundant evidence of the co-existence of dinosaurs and man on display. If someone is going to challenge me on this, they are most welcome.Former dinosaur expert, Steven.
