“Believe it or not, the ancestors of elephants were once as small as mice,” says Dr Evans in phys.org. No, really Dr Evans? What is the scientific evidence for that conclusion? “We chose the generation as our basic measure of evolutionary time, as it is the shortest interval over which evolutionary change can occur.”
So Dr Evans, you deduced from your own invented data that it takes 24 million generations for a mouse to become an elephant, however, you say it only takes two million to loose all that weight to become tiny again! Believe it or not, you say…Not believing! No scientific evidence was presented, invented data doesn’t count.
Moving on…Duck-bill dinosaurs are considered the champs for eating their veggies than elephants or even horses!
In live science…
“The plants these dinosaurs fed on were tough and covered with hard, tooth-gouging particles. Hadrosaurids chewed their meals with teeth that possessed flattened grinding surfaces much like those of horses and bison. Some hadrosaurids sported up to 1,400 of these teeth, and were continually replacing them.”
“The complexity of hadrosaurid teeth would have proved excellent tools for handling tough, gritty plants.”
The earth is only thousands of years old, which allows for discoveries like this to happen which allows us to learn more about the animals! Hadrosaurs teeth are considered 70 million years old by somehow avoiding decay in the invented evolutionary time frame but these teeth are a lot younger and are perfectly functional if placed in a living dinosaur as the research team points out…
“We were stunned to find that the mechanical properties of the teeth were preserved after 70 million years of fossilization…if you put these teeth back into a living dinosaur they would function perfectly.“
When the earth is young, one expects to find well-preserved fossils that normally would not survive so many millions of years. These fossils are amazing, the stories that follow them are not. Interesting to note, the teeth of Hadrosaurs is more complex than any known mammal which suggests so-called evolution of teeth has been going downhill the last 70 million years.
Although speculation can be questioned about how much understanding do they have about the teeth, they freely admit they lack the understanding with horses’ teeth. “We still don’t have a good understanding even of how horse teeth work.”
In phys.org…They came up with a reason for such well-preserved teeth that could have lasted for so long...”Their complex dentition could have played a major role in keeping them on the planet for nearly 35 million years.” This is another Believe it or not question. In other words, they believe it could have been in the development of the teeth, like humans have primary dentition of deciduous teeth and a secondary dentition of permanent teeth and Hadrosaurs has a third dentition, an invented story about how young teeth are old. Believe it or not about Hadrosaurs teeth? Not!
In another story, after over a century of a fossil known to be that of a lemur (a primate) is now reclassified as a fish! Oops! Paleontologists often pride themselves on how much they can tell us about any given creature from just a fragment. They also like taking credit by saying now we can learn more about fish transitions…lol One would think that proper identification is a prerequisite for understanding. Over a 100 years of misidentification is a rather long time!
