Heliocentrism is called into question with new research suggesting planetary orbits are elliptical.

Are stars fixed to the firmament?

Yeah, well we took a cruise half way around the world and the ocean never once curved. It was flat the entire trip. And you guys think the earth is round. Ha.

Noah's Ark is on Mount Ararat in Turkey.

If you sail into the Black Sea, you may fall off the map near Azerbaijan.

And that would call evolution into question how? Even the article itself cites a prof who refers to evolution.

Were dinosaurs on Noah's Ark?

We've know they were warm blooded for some time now. Also Dinosaurs aren't reptiles, so I don't even know why this thread even exists

In Charles Darwin's Species of the Origin, I believe there is a chapter about how dinosaurs are cold blooded.

And when the dinosaurs farted on the ark, Noah and family passed out!

Palentologists have been debating whether dinosaus are cold blooded or warm blooded for about 50 years . An early proponent was James Horner who found dinosaur bones with the same fine structure as birds and more recently the Chinese have found some fossils of a asian relative of T-rex which had feathers. We also have data in which small amounts of DNA were found another well preserve fossil. When compared to modern life the best match was a chicken! Indeed their are dinosaurs ranfing from the size of birds to the giants. So smaller feathered dinosaurs eventually took to the air and filled an environmental niche which when the Earth's climate changed made it easier to migrate from places hard to live because of heat, drought or cold. The larger ones were out of luck and died out coincidentally 65 million years ago. So this really strengthens Evolutionary theory and also shows what climate change can do if you don't, won't or can't change with the climate. The point is you like a lot of lifeforms that couldn't change ie evolve, they simply died. Life will go one its just that you won't!

Also dinosaurs are still with us in the form of a egg laying , feathered animal that usually flies but in some cases like penguins,or Kiwis have stayed on the ground.

Did Noah take cockroaches and bedbugs on this cruise?
