    National Film Preservation Foundation: Fifty Million Years Ago (1925)



    The earth is 50 million years old?

    And took thousands of years to cool down?

    Hilarious!

    And the dinosaurs are terribly funny. Of course it was known what some of them looked like, they had bones.

    But they didn't have computer technology so they couldn't figure out that T Rex and others balanced on their hind legs, not stood upright like people.

    And the one dinosaur scratching itself with it's front legs was very cartoony.

    But still, they got the form right, they knew the dinosaurs was from millions of years ago and they knew the both cooled down and heated up.

    A far cry from the earth being thousands of years old and people being shimmered into being from dirt.

    What this shows is how the "theory" of evolution keeps.......well......evolving. It's not settled science. It's continuing exploration.

    In Arizona, teaching creationism is supported by 4 of 5 Republicans who want to oversee education

    Evolution wording removed from draft of Arizona school science standards

    More proof Republicans will never stop with their ignorance. They only way to stop them is to defeat them at the ballot box. And for the good of the country, they MUST be defeated. Can you imagine the country if Republicans got their way and taught their ignorance to American children?

    You would think by 2019 this fight would be over.

    Douglas' Office Defends Creationist on Panel: Christianity Not a 'Fringe View'

    Kezele, a biology instructor at Arizona Christian University, says that scientific evidence supports his beliefs that the planet is just 6,000 years old and that teenage dinosaurs were on board Noah's Ark. His ideas are rejected by an overwhelming majority of mainstream researchers.

    Willis O'Brien did a far better job with rubber dinosaurs in The Lost World, which was released earlier that year. Fifty Million Years Ago suckered itself ramora-like to the success of the earlier film, kind of like Battle Beyond The Stars ripping off Star Wars, which of course ripped off other things.

    It's interesting that you would choose a film that gets most of its science wrong to criticize others getting the science wrong.

    Kezele is a quack. He has no degree in biology and no research experience in biology. Which, of course, is exactly what this christian university was looking for.

    When creating a thread questioning the intelligence of others, it's probably a good idea to check the grammar in your title to avoid looking like an idiot.

    Its far too late for Deany.
