last time i checked, unicorns werent in the bible, and all the "mythical creatures" arent taken literally in the catholic church at least, symbolic meanings behind them.
Respectfully, when was the last time you checked the bible?

Num 23:22 God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.

Num 24:8 God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn:

Job 39:9 Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?

Job 39:10 Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

Psa 29:6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.

Psa 92:10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like [the horn of] an unicorn:

Long ago everything lived longer, man and plants and reptiles etc. It is proven today that reptiles never stop growing. Man has a cut-off mechanism, reptiles don't! They keep growing for as long as they live, so back then that's why they were so large. Back in 1979 they found an alligator head 4 feet long from thousands years ago.

That's all Dinosaurs were! Reptiles that never stopped growing and cause everything lived longer back then they became HUGE! So reptiles [Dinosaurs] grew and grew for hundreds of years and never stopped growing, and back then man lived to be even over 900 years old, so we know that reptiles lived also to be hundreds of years old.

If reptiles today lived as long as they did back then, we would today also have GIANT reptiles known as "Dinosaurs", and you would see GIANT turtles etc the size of a CAR. But cause they don't live as long as they did back then, they die before they can get that big.

Not so, Nicky. Look on the right side of your screen and you will see numerous 'Christian News' links, including dinosaurs. Just click on one and, if it intersests you, start a new discussion.

No, some dinos are naturally big. Like sauropods. They start out weighing half a ton, and by the time they are 3 they are massive. They start out fairly small and then grow and mature at an astonishing rate. They get that big also because they have adapted many ways to get food and beat off all compition. Thats why dinos are the single best and most succsesfull type of animal. If it wasnt for the metor, raptors would be smarter then us, sauropods would be bigger than any ship, and theropods would crush all resistence from other predators. Raptors given a few more million years might have been smart enough to solve problems and build simple machines and tools and may even somday have learned to build cars and electrical things. We would be visously hunted down and killed, and wiped off by the power of the dinos.

take it easy, you don't have to try shoving your atheist beliefs down our throats, if you don't beleive in god, good for you, i could care less, but dont come over and insult others for their beliefs.
Nobody is shoving anything down anybody's throat. We are simply ridiculing idiotic beliefs.

John Woodmorappe claims that Noah had plenty of time to teach the baby dinosaurs to clean their own cages.

New to the forum? I don't 'bash' Christians with reasonable beliefs. I bash Sola Scriptura Evangelical Fundamentalists with idiotic beliefs.

i just dont like funamentalist christians and athiest that insult religion, sorry if im a little defensive, but ive delt with assholes(not on this forum) that have said that religion is "for retards who cant contimplaint evolution or science so they turn to their magical book with all the answers leading to an invisibale man in the sky".

if you beleive in a more fundementalist ideals, good for you but you dont have to try and force others into your beliefs. if you are an athiest thats fine with me so long as you dont talk down to anyone of faith or faith in general and try and point out errors within the bible.
the catholic church points out alot of these errors i know this for a fact and doesnt force you to be fundementalist or contextualist.

mmk, well during the reading of the scriptures(reading the bible) part of mass, that part hasnt ever been read, since the readings are often have a meaning behind them, usually regarding good moral, good faith, being a good freind, ect.
i've never read the entire bible myself before. but those verses have never been brought up before since they have nothing to do with my churches canon

They also f**k a lot of kids, and, like you, attempt to restrict commentary that upsets them.
