What Happened to the Dinosaurs?

Many years ago, a child asked me this question. I didn’t know quite what to say and maybe i was right. Except for crocs and Komodo dragons, they have all dissapeared as far as we can tell for sure. We do have a fragmentary record of their existence on this planet. Much of the earth is covered in deep layers of sedimentary rock and soil. Great reservoirs of oil, methane and natural gas exist deep below the planet’s surface. Perhaps the residue of a once lush landscape that was suddenly buried under enormous amounts of earth and rock. The pressures of all that sediment and earth upon these remains has turned vegatation into vast layers of coal. Our economy today is dependent on these, “fossil fuels”. If it has any truth to the suggestions that dinosaurs died out “10’s and 100’s of millions of years ago, then all the remains of these creatures should have completely dissolved by now. None of us can imagine the length of time just one “million” years represents. Living material, even bone and teeth were all formed by the most precise processes imaginable. They seem quite durable to us, but i have seen personally what…

Cryptozoology and Science

I was recently reading an AP story about a university professor who was being criticized for his interest an devotion to the Sasquatch or Bigfoot as it’s better known. Thought it was interesting that many of his collegues were angry that he was pursuing such a study on campus and appearing in TV shows as an expert on the subject. Many who have studied the sasquatch, yeti, and other legendary wildmen consider them to be relic ancestors to “modern man”. It’s interesting to me that even though such creatures are a central part of man’s supposed evolution, to suggest that any sort of hairy free roaming wild man is still living in the world should draw fire from scientists. I guess it’s because of all the litereature out there claiming that man’s more apelike “ancestors” have long since dissappeared. Or it could be due to bigfoot’s association with UFO’s and fortean science in recent years. Fortean science is the informal study of all things “out of place” or OOP and other sorts of strange phenomena. Cryptozoology is a wonderful science that studies mysterious, legendary and elusive creatures. Animals that people claim to have seen, but aren’t recognized by mainstream science…
