Quote# 30759

In spite of their ferocious look, many people would probably argue the T-Rex was a vegetarian. The ferocious teeth would have been great for, you know, crushing stuffed pumpkins or something, you know. I don't know if it has ever been proven they were meat eaters. There is plenty of evidence from cracks in the enamel with chlorophyll stains in them indicating they were certainly eating plants.

I think what Ken is trying to convey here is a prophetical parable for his time in prison.

T-Rex is probably the cell-block's nickname for the 7'4" truck driver, who's serving 4 consecutive life sentences.

My guess is that now Kent's arrived, T-Rex has some fresh stuffed-pumpkin to sink his teeth into...

Dear Kent,

Pulling info like this out of your ass instead of having something shoved in must be a nice change?

Who the heck stuffed the pumpkin?

You will find these people in special padded rooms with a lithium lick in the corner.

I've got a joke for you,

What's the difference between a regular fundie and an intellectual fundie ??

A regular fundie starts their argument with, 'I heard somewhere' and an intellectual fundie starts their argument with, 'many people claim'


Okay so it's not funny but it's true.

Yes, a dinosaur that's left a lot of distinctive-looking bite marks in other dinosaur bones and has left broken-off teeth at these feeding sites has got to be a plant-eater, right?

...No.

PS, there really is no "scavenger vs. predator" debate. The media just loves to overplay Jack Horner's idea about T. rex being a scavenger, which is more or less laughed at by everybody else in the field.

Stuffed pumpkins? WTF? Was Adam preparing gourmet squashes and lobbing them into the mouths of tyrannosauruses or something?

Thats the scary thing about our Kent Hovind. He will always believe he is right no matter what the evidence is. If mental gymnastics was an olympic sport then Kent would be America's best chance at a gold medal.

Hey, now that Dr. Dino (AKA Kent Hovind) is in jail, maybe he'll get to experience another one of evolutions curiosities first hand, a good ass bangin'. Maybe he'll come... er, I mean cum to like it!

Maybe the T-Rex had a side-salad?

Maybe Kent Hovind is going to reveal himself one day as a troll, and rip the piss out of all the people who believed his shit.

Hey, we can all dream.

"In spite of their ferocious look, many people would probably argue the T-Rex was a vegetarian.

Many people would. However, they would be wrong.

The ferocious teeth would have been great for, you know, crushing stuffed pumpkins or something, you know.

But even better for cutting up raw meat, like the steak knives they resemble.

I don't know if it has ever been proven they were meat eaters. There is plenty of evidence from cracks in the enamel with chlorophyll stains in them indicating they were certainly eating plants."

Or traces of the gut contents from previous kills, possibly combined with some algae from the wet environment they were fossilized in.

Why do fundies want dinosaurs to be vegetarians? How/why does T rex eating meat go against any Biblical teachings?

Maybe it doesn't come from the T-Rex eating plants, but the EATERS OF PLANTS!

Anna:

Carnivorous animals do not sit well with the Genesis account of creation, as it suggests God created a system build on death and slaughter- and Heaven forfend that the Old Testament God should come across as a bloodthirsty maniac.

So in order to sidestep this, creationist pulled this idea out of their backsides (with absolutely no biblical support) that before Adam and Eve went a-pinching from God's fruit bowl, every animal was vegetarian: Lions, Leeches, Great White Sharks and, in this case, Tyranosaurus Rex.

Yes, yes, I know how you're feeling. I remember how I felt when I heard this feeble bullshit for the first time. Just have a lie down and a cup of tea and you'll be fine.

To you, Kent, reality is only something that happens to other people, isn't it?

By your logic, Lions and Bears should be herbivores too, right? Go play with some and find out.

You, Ham & Mackay does not constitute "many people".

Oh, and your lying about the chlorophyll!

Ohhhhh Kent! Thank you, thank you for that wonderful belly laugh I just had!

Stuffed pumpkins....HAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!

Sneak words are sneaky. Many people would claim that (sorry...arguing implies you bring something to the table other than wild claims) once you spoon fed them your brand of pseudoscience. When the people that claim it are in your flock, it doesn't do much to bolster your credibility.

Why even tell stupid lies like that? What does it matter if T-rex was a vegetarian or a meat eater when you try to prove the bible correct?

I was just wondering how enamel survived on those fossilized teeth.

10/2/2008 8:30:57 PM



Only idiots like you believe that. Anyone one who knows anything about dinosaurs finds the idea of Tyrannosaurs Rex being a herbivore is ludicrous.

Um, no! With those teeth, the T-Rex was definitely a carnivore.
For crushing vegetables you need molars. For riping animal flesh, you need canine teeth. The T-Rex has a whole mouth full of canine teeth.

I would bet a lot of money that is has been proven again and again that the T-Rex was a meat eater. I would also guess that very little enamel survives today to have chlorophyll stains in them.

Btw, my carnivorous cat likes cucumber and salad from time to time. He'd rather eat chicken, though.

Many people would also tell their unsuspecting children that Santa Claus is real.
