Let me start by saying I'm not a religious nut.

But the problem is, the study of paleontology is seriously flawed when taking into account basic anatomy and biology.

Let me begin by saying that the fact of the matter is, the earth is not round, right? It is in the shape of an oblique ellipse due to gravitational and rotational forces that stretch and distort the essential composition of the crust of the earth's upper mantle.

It makes perfect sense to me that this stretching and distortion (slowly, over millions of years) caused geometric distortions in the fossilized bones and imprints encased in the pliable crust, leaving us with size-exaggerated artifacts to piece together.

Whenever I see articles in "trusted publications" that reference things such as 5-story tall lizards with no discernible circulatory system sufficient enough to carry tons of blood to the brain, and (as in the T-Rex) arms so short that the required muscle mass would completely cover them over, or six-foot long mosquitoes with no consideration of how a fragile insect wing structure would be sufficient to hold such a beast aloft (not even taking into account the muscle structure involved in bringing such a huge insect to flight), I just have to call shenanigans to the entire field of study.

The truth, as I see it is, your "dinosaurs" never existed. At least not in the form you imagine them to be. You have been tricked by the moon, and that is commonly referred to as - lunacy.

I invite any claims to refute my assumptions here, as I'm not a "trained paleontologist" and am actually hoping I am wrong. I'd love to imagine a long-gone world of such magnanimous beasts, but my logical mind tells me this is brainless bunkum.

If it ever turns out that I'm right, I want this theory to be hereby known in scientific circles as "Menubar's Theory Of All Paleontologists Are Dumb Butts". You heard me. Stuff your grammar, I get to name it whatever I want.

This is obviously not a forum that I frequent, but I'll try to check back in the next few days to see if anybody responds in a knowledgeable fashion. I will be happy to debate this.

If my theory is not disproved, I suggest you change the title of this forum to "Dumb Butts On The Moon That Hate Menubar's Theory Of All Paleontologists Are Dumb Butts".

Even a magnanimous beast would not indulge this premise.

Well, just keep on believing that imaginary monsters were real. Maybe Santa will bring you a nice gift this xmas.

And the alternative theory is.... The Earth warped fossils to over or under exagerate their size & shape..... Good idea, now do some science and get your hands dirty. 1st show that the fossils are being found in metamorphic rock & not sedementary rock. Then show some fossils with major deformities cause by the heat and pressure and you will have a viable theory...... Otherwise, you might as well be talking about the Hollow Earth theory.
