Quote# 100136

(according to Supersport, native Americans fought with dinosaurs on a regular basis)

you obviously don't have this book:

http://www.amazon.com/Fossil-Legends...7904052&sr=1-1

Mayor, a folklorist and historian of science, continues the project of understanding what premodern peoples made of fossils that she started in The First Fossil Hunters: Paleontology in Greek and Roman Times. Surveying accounts of Native American tradition from the earliest Spanish conquistador and missionary records of Aztec and Inca lore up through present-day Indian oral histories, she correlates Native American myths with the fossils they are known or presumed to have observed. The results are unsurprising: giant fossil mastodon and dinosaur bones engendered myths about giants—giant elk, bear, birds, centipedes, subhumanoids and mysterious "water monsters"—who populated the earth

would you like some quotes about indians finding dino bones and telling stories about them and/or using them as tools? I do own the book......... What's really cool is the stories they passed down through the generations of actually interacting/fighting with the dinos....but of course the evos, such as the one who wrote the book, think these stories were just made up...that indians by the hundreds saw the bones and then, like 3-year olds living in Make-Believe world, concocted elaborate, fictional tales about them....even though they evidently didn't construct the bones to form these creatures so that they'd know what they looked like......these "fiction" stories were deemed important enough to be remembered and faithfully retold generation after generation.

What absolute BS!

Of course Native Americans found Dino bones! They called them father of the Buffalo (clearly smarter of then super sport). But as for fighting them, no. I never heard of such stories.

The cretinos like superspor believe heathen legends, even though they are lies from satan.

This Moron of the Apocalipse is back!

Man appeared several millions of years after the end of the dinosaures.

Next they will try to convince us Rachel Welch didn't actually fight dinosaurs while wearing a cave bikini.

In fact, when humans first came to the Americas, there were not only living mastodons and mammoths, but outsize elk (Cervalces), bear, beaver, and more- Pleistocene megafauna. Some folk memory of them has been preserved in many cultures. This has nothing to do with biblical dragons. The sasquatches and water monsters are harder to source, but although I can't tell you much about *centipedes*, we have a rather spectacular millipede where I live: Narceus, q.v.

So we should also believe that the lakes of Minnesota were formed by the footprints of Paul Bunyon and his enormous blue ox, Babe, and he dug out the Grand Canyon with his ax?

There were people with far greater neurophysiological/psychological afflictions (IED/mine etc battle damage-based PTSD, for example, as per the vets of Iraq/Afghanistan who participated) in the 2012 London Paralympics that gave an infinitely greater account of themselves - as proven by the Gold medals they won - than you ever possibly could or can. And you're able-bodied.

StuporSport indeed.

Stupidsport returns!

And, I don't know about you but "Hiawatha VS. Tyrannosaurus REX!" would make for an awesome B-Movie!

Following that "logic", all myths and legends must be true. Including the ones about other gods than the Christian one.

Are you sure you thought this through?

Of course not; those Indians back in the day never heard of telephones, how could they play the game?

Oh, Supersport. I don't know whether to laugh at you, or feel pity that you haven't gotten the psychiatric help you so desperately need.

"like 3-year olds living in Make-Believe world"

- says the guy who denies the empirically verifiable historical record because he thinks that his imaginary friend from the Bronze Age likes to trick people with giant, stupid hoaxes for no apparent reason.

So, let me get this straight:

Peer-reviewed scientific paper on evolution = worthless fiction
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter = historical fact

In Kosovo, we have folklore about men fighting with giants and sea monsters; that doesn't mean that you'll find their bones here. Folklore is not science, and neither is history of science.
