Re: Strange Web Site
I agree that this bizarre site was good for a few laughs. He claims
that the explanation mustn't be weird, but this is one of the weirdest I've
ever come across. I think little green men from outerspace on a Cretaceous
safari hunt would probably make more sense.
One good "come-back" might be to ask this guy why the ammonites and
lots of other marine organisms went extinct at the same time (gravitation
actually killing sea creatures, but not mammals and birds? ---give me a
break). This guy needs to read a physics book.
But it would probably be a waste of time trying to reason with him (as
Mickey noted). I was recently trying to explain to some guy online that
having one copy of the sickle-cell mutation could be advantageous since it
confers resistance to malaria (and one has to have both copies with the
mutation to develop sickle-cell disease). He just accused me downplaying
what a terrible disease it is. Others tried to reason with him as well, but
some people are beyond hope, and this weird "gravitational" site may be
authored by one of those who are unable or unwilling to listen to reason at
all. Once that is apparent, about all you can do is ignore them. I got
some chuckles from it, but it is so absurd that it almost makes you want to
cry. ........... Now about those extra-terrestrials hunting for dinosaur
trophies........ now that sounds simple and plausible (*Just Kidding*).

LOL Reading that nonsense really brightened my day. I love the Gallimimus
weighing 27kg! That's juvenile you fool! The only effect a meteorite
would bring is a climate change!? Non-dinosaurian reptiles somehow staying
overadapted to gravity for over two million years..... Absolutely no
reason the aquatic reptiles would become extinct..... So many errors.....
can't insult all.... ;-)
I'd say don't waste your time sending an e-mail critique David, he
obviously isn't using logic to support his arguments.
