And you don't even know where the word dragon came from.

Here is a hint, it does not apply to dinosaurs.

Anyone care to explain the discrepancy in the fossil records?

I thought Neanderthals were special. But there's one particular human species that caught my attention - the rhodesian men, or the homo rhodesiensis. They lived longer than the neanderthals, spanning three pleistocene periods: lower, middle, and upper paleolithic, as early as 500,00 years and as recent as 13,000 years ago. No photos available except for one stinking black and white photo of a side view skull. The front view, only a replica of the skull. I find that very strange because there are other fossil records for much earlier fossils such as the jaw of homo habilis with a full set of teeth dating 1.75 million years ago and the earliest found skull from the miocene period!

Should I dig deeper? or should I look for more skeletons in the closet? LOL.

Your claim was that love pain and happiness were chemical processes. Which would be physical evidence, not non-physical.sorry your the one who loses.
When did I say that? i said their effects can be measured. and yes, that would be physical evidence of love or pain.

Why is this a problem for you? why do you consider this a discrepency?

What discrepancy?

Could you be a little clearer?

Yeah right, just electrochemical interactions! The answer still does not define sentience, ie your own ability to think and reason.

Actually, back in the day when people were really starting to find many dinosaur fossiles, the teaching of the church was that god wouldn't have let one of the species he created die off, so they were considered to be the bones of sea creatures as yet discovered. it took a while for science to win out over god's word there, also.

another proof against the divine inspiration idea...

Langy, why do you post crap like this?
It looks like it was written by a sixth grader.
It was obviously not written by anyone who knew anything at all about science. Their first claim alone proves that.
I know that you have no real evidence so you go to these sites to get somebody to lie for you. It does not seem like that big of a lie if you get someone else to do the dirty work.
Written by a sixth grader?, that explains why it went over your head,ha,ha,ha.

If I take my watch apart, every piece... Place it into a brown paper sack and stand shaking the bag until it is again, functioning exactly as before, perfectly back together and in motion with the correct time etc.. How long do I have to stand there and shake that bag? This is what "science" would have you to believe everything "came to be" as with the Big Bang THEORY. It takes more faith to believe that than it does for me to believe in an intelligent design. Don't put so much "faith" in science as it has been flawed throughout history. Once upon a time there was an atom, the smallest thing known to man... Then they split it open and more small stuff spewed out, discrediting the atom being the smallest. Point is, we learn more and more daily... There is a place for logic and faith. Passing judgemental comments amongst one another will not mend fences only offer a path of destruction. There will always be believers and nonbelievers everyone of us hold an obligation to be humanitarians and cohabit without such contempt for one another.

The rhodesian species were incorrectly dated. Big discrepancy, from 1.75 mya to about 300,000 years ago. Not only there are no real evidence, the dating system used was not reliable.
