So, anyone who has spent anytime near what I call a “Scientific” Atheist, who acts like everyone from a religious area is stupid, religions are evil and ignorant, and so on and forth, know that such people like to act as if they are the smartest people on the planet. Well, the smartest people on the planet have come up with what I have to say is the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard.

Dinosaurs killed themselves with their own farts.

That’s it, right there. No giant asteroid fell from the sky. Nope, apparently the dinos farted so much that they produced enough green house gasses to turn the planet so hot that they cooked themselves.

I think those climate change people are getting pretty desperate to make people keep going along with them.

Now, I’m no scientist, but I did like dinosaurs as a kid and a read a lot about them. Admittedly, I forgot a lot of it, but I do remember reading that the world of the dinos was warmer. A lot warmer. As in naturally passed levels that the current global warming people say would kill us all (or whatever it is they’re saying would happen, they keep changing it). After all, parts of North America were something like a tropical forest, I vaguely recall. Lots of the planet had a much different biosphere, full of plants and all sorts of things. They got really big too.

So my question is this, how many dinosaurs would it take in order to over come the natural green house absorption of an undisturbed world full of plant life? I mean, I think that’s kinda ecologically impossible. In order to have enough animals to create that much green house gasses, they would have to be in such numbers that they tip the balance of how much food there is to support them (after all, the energy has to come from somewhere) and on top of that, you have to deal with the fact that there would be the predators, who would naturally increase in numbers to the rise in prey, which would keep things rather stable. Not to mention the fact that if there were enough dinosaurs to wipe themselves out with green house gasses, I would imagine we would find a lot more bones. But last time I checked, such bones are still pretty rare.

So…yeah. Stupid.

So whenever an atheist starts harping about something they think is stupid in my religion, I’ve got this little thing to pull out.
