The Vegetarian T-Rex
Ray, you again.
“Answersingenesis.org says T- Rex was a vegetarian before the fall, which may have happened within a few days of Adam being created. Afterwards he may have been primarily a scavenger (he had shallowly rooted teeth). Big sharp teeth are found on vegetarians too.”
First of all, I just wanted you to know that, what you cannot test is not science. When scientists make claims such as “the whale may have evolved from land animals”, they have to go out there and find the evidence to back up their claims. This process is called hypothesis testing. Therefore, creationism is not a science, even though it has that cool (pseudo)scientific name Intelligent Design. For example, when creationists try to explain “bad design”, they present hypotheses, such as “God made us perfect but man sinned”, which is a hypothesis that is not testable or falsifiable. Intelligent Design works like this. 1. Find a complicated process that scientists haven’t yet explained (or just lie that scientists don’t know anything about it). 2. Jump to the conclusion that God did it. Which means that Intelligent Design is not a scientific theory!
Now, here is the actual quote from AnswersInGenesis.org, regarding the vegetarian T-rex:
Originally, before sin, all animals, including the dinosaurs, were vegetarian. Genesis 1:30 states, “And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to every thing that creeps upon the earth, which has life, I have given every green herb for food: and it was so.”
This means that even the T. rex before sin entered the world, ate only plants.
That’s nice — DID YOU SEE THAT? The conclusion was drawn STRAIGHT FROM THE FACKING BIBLE — not from evidence! Which is exactly why the website is called ANSWERS IN GENESIS in the very first place!
*sigh* . . .
“This means that even the T. rex before sin entered the world, ate only plants. Some people object to this by pointing to the big teeth that a large T. rex [A LARGE T-REX… AS OPPOSED TO A SMALL T-REX] had, insisting they must have been used for attacking animals. However, just because an animal has big, sharp teeth does not mean it eats meat. It just means it has big, sharp teeth!”
[continued] “Many animals today have sharp teeth but are basically vegetarian. The giant panda has sharp teeth like a meat-eater’s, but it eats bamboo. Perhaps the panda’s teeth were beautifully designed to eat bamboo. To explain why a giant panda has teeth like a meat-eaters today, yet eats bamboo, evolutionists have to say that the giant panda evolved as a meat eater, and then switched to bamboo.”
First thing’s first, BullshitAnswersInGenesis.org is a religious website, and it has no place in a scientific debate. SECONDLY:
The Giant Panda – with its teeth adapted to chewing bamboo.
To hell with all this nonsense! Creationists, including you, are the quintessence of stupid. Prove me wrong.
