crankier The Great Dinosaur Mystery 2002 Nov 16
     ... Scientific Creationism . paleontology ...
"Those people with an adventurous spirit would give almost anything to find a real, live dinosaur somewhere in the world. But, of course, mainstream scientists say that is impossible. Evolutionists have long conjectured that dinosaurs were part of a theoretical Great Age of the Reptiles about 200 million years ago. According to their theory, dinosaurs became extinct about 70 million years ago. And man did not evolve until about 4 million years ago. If this is true, no man could ever have seen a live dinosaur. However, some new discoveries indicate that man and dinosaurs may have lived together in the not too distant past. Modern man may have to totally rethink theories of how these great creatures fit into the history of the human race."

crankiest Dinosaurs: Science or Science Fiction 2002 Jul 26
     ... Scientific Creationism . conspiracy . paleontology ...
"This article will discuss the possibility that there may have been an ongoing effort since the earliest dinosaur 'discoveries' to plant, mix and match bones of various animals, such as crocodiles, alligators, iguanas, giraffes, elephants, cattle, kangaroos, ostriches, emus, dolphins, whales, rhinoceroses, etc. to construct and create a new man-made concept prehistoric animal called 'dinosaurs.' Where bones from existing animals are not satisfactory for deception purposes, plaster substitutes may be manufactured and used. Some material similar or superior to plasticine clay or plaster of Paris would be suitable. Molds may also be employed. A 144-page book titled 'Make Your Own Dinosaur Out of Chicken Bones' provides step-by-step instructions complete with detailed drawings and diagrams."

"As a matter of fact, humanity did neither evolve from a branch of the ape-stock, nor from other quadrupedal antecedents. The genus Homo originated from a lineage peculiar to himself that came up from the ocean in remote times [the palaeontologists use the name Homo to specify some creatures like H. habilis or H. rudolfensis: for sure, I only use this appellation in Linnaeus' mind, i.e. regarding Homo sapiens, with his big encephalon and erect stature!]. Humans are indeed, among the vertebrates, the least removed from the ancient prototype, morphologically and anatomically. Man preserved the original orthograde body position of his lineage. This bipedal, former aquatic, form was not only man's ancestor, but also the ancestor of all the today living and extinct mammals, of the birds, reptiles, batracians and of the diverse water vertebrates. ... So, where do we really come from? First of all, we have to disregard the fossil records. Palaeontology only gives us indications about ancient fauna, and shows no evidence regarding the chronological order in which the series of vertebrates and invertebrates should be listed - and how they may have evolved!" In English, French, and German.

"... is an international organization devoted exclusively to the advancement of the science of paleontology through the dissemination of research by publication and meetings. The following pages contain information on the society and its activities and provide links to other paleontology resources on the web."

"Crustal shortening in the junior effect. Eventually, such investigations as that above, will gravitate toward vertical control of orogenesis with a primary extension controlled geodynamic setting, with sequences of secondary, upper-crustal level, compressional gravity induced flow nested within, i.e., global expansion tectonics." Availble in a downloadable form in PKZIP format.

fringe Dinosaur Extinction: The Volcano-Greenhouse Theory 2000 Jul 02
     ... science . evolution . paleontology . astronomy . geology ...
"The cause of the K-T [Cretaceous-Tertiary] extinctions is one of the great mysteries in science, and many scientists have proposed theories to account for it. Theories span a vast spectrum of causes including: sea level change, supernova explosions, climate change, and on and on. Beginning in the 1980s, two new theories became the topic of an intense scientific debate. They are the K-T impact extinction theory originated by the Nobelist physicist, Luis Alvarez, and his team, and the K-T Deccan Traps volcanism-induced carbon cycle perturbation extinction theory which I originated, which, for short, I call the volcano-greenhouse theory."

     ... Velikovsky . catastrophism . paleontology . skepticism ...
"In Minds in Ablation, Sean Mewhinney summarizes why he believes the physical evidence provided by paleoclimatic data, especially ice cores, demonstrates that global catastrophes of the type envisioned by Immanuel Velikovsky and others 'could not have happened within the past many thousands of years,' and refutes the defense of Velikovsky's scenario attempted by Charles Ginenthal in his ice core evidence."

anti Carboniferous human bones -- an evaluation 1999 May 27
     ... archaeology . evolution . paleontology . skepticism ...
"This document evaluates some of the claims of 'human bones in Carboniferous-age rocks' in eastern Pennsylvania, as presented by Ted Holden and initially discovered and interpreted by Ed Conrad. Ted and Ed have graciously provided specimens of their material for analysis, and the results are presented here."
