That's the disturbing thing, I didn't... (You know he is willing to let bygones be bygones in regard to the Coal Scuttle... I thought he had been touched by Eru, but now I think he's just gone Crazy! And not "normal" McTyrant crazy neither... He'll be kicked out of his Clan if he's not careful!)

Would seem so!

(It is the argument I have heard put forward by quite serious (and intelligent) people!)

Why do they think an old appearing planet requires fossils of things which never existed to make it seem old? Geology would have done without the dinosaurs surely? Why invent things that never were and hide them in the ground? Thats mad that is.

Eru works in mysterious ways too, but he never made up absurd creatures, then made them extinct, then pretended they were old! Eru is a much more Sensible God. That's why I worship him. Very Happy

Here's a picture from the Creation Museum. Apparently dinosaurs were also on Noah's Ark.

I know some of these people. They're looking for simplicity and certainty in their lives, and scientific curiousity makes their heads hurt. They see no practical use in questioning whether dinosaurs had feathers or not, or who went extinct when. Fair enough. It only becomes an issue for me when they start trying to dictate to the schools and libraries.

This is just way freaky!



1. Stare at the red dot on the girl’s nose for 30 seconds
2. Turn your eyes towards the wall/roof or somewhere else on a plain surface
3. Keep blinking your eyes quickly!
4. What can you see?

That's really cool! I've seen similar tricks done by reversing all the colors but nothing quite like that, and nothing that involved blinking. I suspect that the colors of the three dots had something to do with the illusion. Smile

I supsect the colours must have something to do with it but its too damn weird- hows a person supposed to go about the world knowing their eyes and brain are just making it all up?! I demand rigidly defined areas of certainy and solidness in the universe!
