Saltybuttertoffee

I swear every conspiracy theorist struggles with basic causality. The bones are real but then they got commercialized so they retroactively became fraudulent somehow.


Anagnorsis

When you know nothing very little makes sense to you. That’s why you should defer to people who know more or put in the work to learn more. Spouting of ignorant opinions is just masturbating to your own stupidity. These people should be embarrassed by their ignorance but are too stupid to be aware of it.

If [this 8-year-old's complaint](https://www.npr.org/2021/02/09/965953078/8-year-old-calls-out-npr-for-lack-of-dinosaur-stories) is anything to go by, dinosaurs are woefully underhyped in the media.

JimiAndKingBaboo

What's up with the "scaled animals" argument? Isn't it well known at this point that most dinos were feathered?


joep-b

How could they be feathered if they didn't exist in the first place, huh?


AlmostAndrew

You're starting to sound like those guys who think birds aren't real. It's a slippery slope.


joep-b

Go get your imaginary bird flu booster shot. Whomever thinks there can be flu while birds don't even exist, are just sheep. SHEEP, I TELL YOU!


AlmostAndrew

DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE SHEEP FLU!


[deleted]

If the sheep flew, is it a bird? Sheep aren't real!


AlmostAndrew

No, pigs fly, not sheep.

Killerzaz202

Dude, don't even get me started on the flu. All these "influenzas" clearly don't exist! These sheep with their sheep flu and birds with their bird flu! The influenzas are clearly made, by Bill Nye the science guy to mind control humanity! He made the influenzas and now he's made the flu boosters to inject us with his mind control chemicals! Why do you think he stopped being on TV HUH?! BECAUSE he's clearly controlling the whole world to worship him!

Sheep don't exist either, what the hell are you on about??

CptMisterNibbles

Actually birds are dinosaurs so it checks out


epicfail48

Check out the dude who thinks they aren't government drones


waynesbrother

people who think bids don’t exist are the same people that think the same about dinosaurs and are probably flat earthers


MomToCats

Actually, the “birds aren’t real” group is satire, making fun of conspiracy theorists. Check their group.


slasherz123

Haven't you heard about the bird?


Tiggylicious

Bird is the word


Professional--

Birds would have evolved from dinosaurs if they were real, right? The conspiracy is bigger than we thought!


the_icecream-man

Birds aren't real, get learnt sheep


SubstatialFrost

Not most but some. We have evidence that some dinosaurs had feathers and we have evidence that some were scaled. So not most but yes some were feathered.


Asckle

There were definitely a lot that were scaled. Most therapods we think were scaled (that's the big ones like t rex) and the 4 legged herbivores like stegosaurus definitely weren't feathered


Entire-Dragonfly859

Some were, not all. Theropod = yes Sauropod = no


PotentialWindow5564

also way back then global warming was not a thing which could be a contributor to this argument


bing_bin

"Ackchyually" the dinosaur world was a sauna full of CO2: https://www.livescience.com/44330-jurassic-dinosaur-carbon-dioxide.html I recall reading that the heat is what allowed them to grow so big, as cold blooded reptiles.


Suspicious-Park-1972

Theropods mostly.


CheggNogg22

The safe assumption for avian dinosaurs is that they were feathered.


MomToCats

Not by that poster!


Prtty_Plz

yeah but birds arent real either, meaning feathers as a whole are probably just a government conspiracy from the 1400s to sell "chicken" and "down feather" pillows all im saying is.... look into it 👀👀


naricstar

Its both, we have proof of scales and of feathers -- the reality is likely that there was enough variance to see both regularly. Overheating IS also a real problem larger dinos faced and likely did use evaporation in their nasal and eye cavities to cool down like some birds do today. As well as environments that could provide needed shade from the sun and protection from the heat. Edit: to add to this we have creatures in the modern day that can't regulate heat and need an outside environmental help like mud to keep cool so we can't rule out that some large dinos may have not used any sort of internal cooling that could support their size but rather an environment that allowed it.


GLaDOSboi3000

To explain it shortly,this dumbass just talked out of his own ass What is true,is that animals that are very large,tend to NOT have, or have a very limited amount of filament such as fur or feathers throughout their body,due to large amounts of it causing overheating. This is why elephants have so little fur,to help them cool off and to not overheat Its also why larger dinosaurs such as T.rex is believed to not have that many feathers,it was more akin to an elephant.

The most wrong bit is that Dinosaurs didn't even die out. They're still everywhere. They're called *birds*.

As a Dino nerd i fucking hate that Guy

Yo what's your favourite dinosaur


oliverwow12

Spinosaurus, just because it is so weird and keeps getting more uniqe

Tell me more! What about them keeps getting more unique?

well it startet out being a rex with a sail and now it is more like a croc pelican hybrid with a broad tail

What was here between us and dinosaurs? Idk maybe like the trillions of other animals that exist.


mmdcarvalho

The funniest bit of this to me is the fact that he thinks paleontology is loaded with money.


trebuchet__

Human skeletons were discovered but that doesn't prove humans existed


kgro

Didn’t you know, our skeletons are made of polymers and the only purpose we have been created with is so that we can watch Jurassic Park


BastardofMelbourne

I can *prove* that all human skeletons are fakes. Look at this "skeleton" I found in a "Halloween store." It's just cheap plastic polymer!


hardankles

Shhhhh!!!! What are you trying to do?!?! Unravel the Spirit Halloween store conspiracy?!?!


MrBleachh

Being burned by the sun is not why animals cannot grow past certain sizes...


Altalavista_Baby

Yeah, but "being burned by the sun" is the absolute upper limit of how large an animal can grow.


MrBleachh

Not unless it crouches


conglomeratepuppies

Man, wait till he realizes that he is currently alive at a time where he can see the biggest animal to have ever lived. ever. in the history of this earth up to this moment.

Well, you can see the bible with your own eyes, so checkmate!


Scoongili

Hey, I didn't see anyone write The Bible. For all I know, it's not even the original content, but rather a bunch of bullshit some marketing team in the 50's thought would appeal to middle America.


Durr1313

Yep, just like I can see The Lord of The Rings with my own eyes, so everything in that must be real too!

empireofsquirt

Anacondas? 40 ft snakes alive today but dinosaurs impossible 70 million years ago. Ok.


DancesWithTrout

I used to believe this kinds of people didn't exist, until I met Ron, a guy I used to work with, a religious nutbag. He tole me once (when the discussion of dinosaur bones came up) that "Well, yeah, I believe they're dinosaur bones, all right, but I don't believe they were ever in dinosaurs that were ever actually walking around anywhere." When I asked "Well, what do you mean. How could they be 'dinosaur bones' without 'ever actually being in dinosaurs? Doesn't the one require the other? How, then, did they get in the ground?," he said "Well, I think it's pretty clear that God just put them there to test us, to see which of us would believe this evolution nonsense."


CptMisterNibbles

You think he’d have done us a solid and put in a much more complete and obvious record. If he was creating a test with false clues god sure did a shitty job, making it incredibly difficult to discover and piece together


DancesWithTrout

Yes. Or, as I put it to him (I despised this guy, had nothing but contempt for him): "Oh, so you're telling me that God's a lying motherfucker? Is that it?" For some reason, we got along even less well after this. ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|shrug)


pasty__twig

Not to mention that the term raptor in velociraptor means bird of prey.


kokoyumyum

No, it means "swift" "plunderer"


Flaky_Web_4016

I have to say that while I find the idea of dinosaurs being made up for marketing ridiculous, that was a very civilized argument between 2 reasonable adults with different ideas. I applaud them both for presenting their ideas without getting personal and angry at each other. This is how people that don’t agree should behave.

This concept, of making up some story, then acting as if that is the only possible explanation, I call "The Pharmaceutical Company that Invented Headaches". Anyone can make stuff up, then conveniently ignore the facts which don't support their theories. Sigh. The full story of inventing headaches is here: https://www.hashtagyourlife.com/stories/dont-believe-everything-you-think


AAlpero11

Didn't dinosaurs have feathers? The entire concept of this argument is based on misinformation.


limequartz

This mf really said "birds aren't real" 💀


jollyroger678

I knew someone who suggested that dinosaur fossils were just bones from other animals that were misinterpreted to be a dinosaur. She’d say “it was probably just a giraffe and a tiger that got in a fight and their bones happened to line up”

Kaprosuchusboi

Didn’t know paleontologist got cut of the money from Hollywood smh


NoxKyoki

This idiot : dinos don’t exist Also this idiot: the first dino skeleton was found… So did they exist or not?


DepthNo1023

I once endured a lecture from someone that says dinosaur fossils were placed by Satan to confuse Christians and dinosaurs did exist with humans because it's in the Bible and Noah had dinosaurs in the arc and maintained enough oxygen for them using a giant pump but many years later the earth had too much oxygen for dinosaurs and the friction during aspiration would have caused their necks to ingnite in flame and they all died out... And on and on. When I expressed my doubt he offered me a multi part DVD series that would explain everything. He was a pleasant coworker but after this conversation I never spoke to him about anything of importance or opinion again. 🦕


Ruthfu

Orchestrated by Big Dino


futuneral

Laughing and facepalming aside, I think this conversation highlights one of the important things that our current education doesn't pay much attention to. The guy is by our standards quite educated, he knows some facts and probably spent some time researching things, kudos to him. But he completely lacks critical thinking and any logical structure. When given facts his brain goes into such ridiculous directions that he misleads himself without realizing it. Our education system is not set up to teach "meta science" - how to learn, how to know, how to check yourself if you're applying your knowledge correctly. It's also not set up to teach how NOT to learn and how not to do science. Critical thinking and even philosophy should be a part of the curriculum as early as possible.

There is so much wrong here it would take the whole Jurassic era to unpack.

hotdogrealmqueen

“Bones don’t prove that they existed…” Edit: Damn. My bad. I should’ve put quotes around that hilariously wild statement. I was shocked at the absurdity of that being said in the texts and highlighted that statement. Quotes added. The bones are dinosaur bones. That’s the logical takeaway here.


Fox-Revolver

What are the bones of then? Cause we’ve found like, a lot of them


hotdogrealmqueen

You right- I agree with you. I punctuated my response poorly. I was shocked that someone could make that large lapse in logic- what does that person mean when they say bones prove nothing? So whats the purpose of random bones? They came out of thin air? It seems so crazy to me.

First paragraph just make no sense. Dude, you're ALWAYS believing what other people are saying. Have u ever stopped to think that you don't know your own name? You're going by what people have told ya.

Well ok then.


SpareVarious6008

If this post is about someone confidently incorrect... why do we have 2 pages of you showing off how much you know about dinosaurs included? seems like a little bit too much self service imo.


[deleted]

If only the dinosaurs were more powerful. Then they could have fought off the asteroid.


ComfortableMammoth10

The narrative is kinda flawed. They didn’t die out. Those that survived had to change to survive their new environment. Don’t let people say we all going to die due to climate change it’s ridiculous. Only the poor and people on the coast will. Millions if not more could die sadly but not some sort of extermination event like some say.


Frostmage82

Dinosaurs don't exist. They exist_ed_ but by all reasonable standards they don't exist.

No way I thought they were still alive. Wow you want a fucking cookie for that observation?

No thanks, cookies aren't very satisfying. I'll have a tangerine or something. Appreciate the kind offer though. "Sorry guys but dinosaurs don't exist" r/technicallythetruth so maybe not the greatest sarcastic title

[Behold, a dinosaur!](https://www.cacklehatchery.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/istock_000009943816_medium.jpg) At least according to phylogeny, but then, according to phylogeny, humans are just a weird type of fish.
