They should put a limit on what they call a dinosaur.  This thing was only 6 feet long.

Tom, I'm going to have to read this again in the morning.  I couldn't understand what he was saying.

I too doubt “that” theory, the “darling” of so many.

Don Engel....I didn't want to bring up "that" theory that seems to be the darling of....just about everyone. Glad to hear I'm not alone in not buying into it, and not just because I'm some bloody fundamentalist but because it doesn't sit right with those commons sense neurons at the back of the brain, and because it seems to me, every time we go 'out there' and see something for the first time, the supposed experts are always surprised by what they find, and proclaim it unexpected. Almost every, single, time. I say there is a different explanation (though I'm not expert enough myself to provide a viable one) than the public favorite big bang silliness.

Comment by Donald L. Engel on August 5, 2019 at 11:27am

@Lanktree. I agree with everything you said here.  The Big Bang is a lot of nonsense, in my uneducated opinion,.I can come up with a better  explanation of the universe's expansion than that..

BTW, Dawkins is a hero of mine....ahem, anyway, Glacial Lake Missoula Montana is what Tom Sarbeck is talking about, that's a short drive south of my home town of Kalispell. The lake shore lines all around the town of Missoula are so gratifying to see...I find the scientific explanation of nearly everything on Earth falls directly within my own reasoning, evolution makes so much sense, the geologic formation of the surface regions, Chicxulub, all of it. I understood plate tectonics even when continental drift wasn't widely accepted or believed back in the 60's has made perfect sense to me. Whilst interested in space and fascinated by many aspects of it, I don't hold with the popular theories as those....don't fall in the realm of what makes sense to me so I just stick to what we can see out there and focus more intently on what's here on our pale blue dot.

Actually watched the whole video. Dawkins is great. His explanations of life and his humor are exemplary. 

Comment by Donald L. Engel on August 5, 2019 at 2:09am

For me, it put a lot of things in perspective, both timewise, and globally.  Thanks, Patricia

Comment by Patricia on August 5, 2019 at 12:07am

Yes, I'll be watching again.
