I thank you from the bottom of my God fearing, creationist heart for correctly calling it a theory

Scientific theories are cool, you should learn about them.

Don't be scared. Fear does wierd things to people, as anyone into CONTROL knows all too well.

And the fact that they change their minds (when they find new scientific evidence) disproves evolution? Really? So now the case is closed, and evolution has been disproved forever, because of one shift (of many) in the way scientists classify their data?

Do you want to throw out mathematics as disproved bunkum, when mathematicians shift to a new line of thought in number theory? Theologians are constantly changing their minds about the nature of God, so I guess that disproves God, too. Who know what they'll think up next.

By they way, even the concept of metabolic homeostasis is no longer held to be a black and white distinction between groups in the animal world, so the whole question of whether dinosaurs were warm blooded is meaningless, in the evolutionary sense. Evolution does not depend on an immutable continuum of metabolic homeostasis.

It's not done just willy-nilly. Scientist must go where the evidence leads. Conclusions are not change just on a whim or feelings.

One thing that ancient hunter-gather humans were good at (besides just surviving) was making cave paintings which are found all over the planet. The oldest cave paintings go back to the Pleistocene epoch some 40,000 years ago as they painted many of the different animals in their world back then as for example we can see Wooly Mammoths, Mastodons and Saber Tooth Cats painted or drawn on the walls. However there are NO cave paintings of any animal or creature etc. belonging to any of the preceeding epochs i.e. Pliocene, Miocene, Oligocene, Eocene, Paleocene 2,588,000 BCE to 65,000,000 BCE to when the dinosaurs last walked the earth and yet not one cave painting of any those ancient pre-human animals or dinosaurs exists because they had NO CLUE of their existence as humans have never lived amongst the great dinosaurs like the OP and a few others on this thread would have us all believing.

I've always thought the dinosaurs were warm blooded.

How does that disprove evolution?

There are warm blooded fish too. So what?

It doesn't. Someone just thinks they came up with a stumper.

Since someone had mentioned earlier about dinosaurs and noahs ark it's too bad that the early bible authors hadn't known about all the different type of Sauropods (largest dinosaurs ever) or even the giant Theropods (T-Rex, Allosaurus, Spinosaurus etc.) as they might had made its dimensions vastly larger.
