What the Hell would aliens want from us? I mean, the whole anal-probe-situation might be enticing, but is it worth using that much fuel to drive here? Anyways, most of it is bullshiat, and God dropped dinosaur skeletons onto the world. Questions, children?

Why is everyone sayin the same 3 things and not taking into account that this could all have been proven fake or already found to be something explainable?

Good point kk30 It's one of those things that you either believe or you don't

I was just saying it to make a point cuz had I seriously made that statement, lunatics would have been all over me about pushing my beliefs on others etc etc etc.

I'm making no arguments for or against anything.

The Costa Rican stone balls were made by an indigenous group that is related to the Bribri tribe of Costa Rica. My husband is actually a decendant of this tribe! And there is really no way to tell if they are perfectly spherical because the balls have been eroded by the environment over the years.

I'm not actually being serious when I say this, but who's to say that there wasn't intelligent humans already, billions of years ago, that weren't wiped out by some sort of pandemic or global crisis?

queen, even though the carbon14 method is relativly acurate it can make mistakes its always + / - couple thousand years.
The imposible Fosills do not nes. a human hand prind lots of animals have human like paws, so it is more like to have been an animal, as humans used to be a lot smaller 1000s of years ago, the groved sphere also coud ave been by nature, infact the fact that it is so symetric sounds more like water making it round than humans.
The science might not be able to proove everything but with a lit of bit of logic, i am pretty sure it could proove at least 50% of those were fakes.

oh and broadway love... EVIDENCE of GOD is an OXIMORON

woah...
you just blew my mind...
either:
a) there are time machines in the future
b) we have had alien visitors on this planet loong time ago
OR
c) scientists are not very meticulous about their dating methods
in which case...
my mind is still amazed at this...

just because you believe differently than I do doesn't neccesarily make me wrong. If you think like that, then you need a reality check

What if I were to say something along the lines of
Dumbasses, not believing in God when there is so much evidence out there. But I guess it's your immortal soul that's at stake so be stupid with it all you want...

pushing the fact that you don't believe in God or Aliums on everyone else is as bad as them showing up at your door and pushing God and Aliums on you.

retards believing in aliens and god, and not trying to explain the unexplainable.

people who are dumb enough to use religion and aliens to explain things are simply ignorant and retarded. They are the people who are slowing down our evolution.

not that i can do anything about it
and also i also believe in aliens but i just dont like how people use them to explain everything

"hmmmmm, i was taken aback slighty by the scale of this before i reached comments...and all the small minded people screaming 'faaake!' like they have proof"

You are a child, and you argue like one. Research each topic for more than 2 minutes and you can find that a) their originating sources are unreliable b) most of them have already been proven fictitious, so we don't have to.

BroadwayLove,

See, this is where you're going wrong in your assumption that geological dating techniques are potentially flawed.

There is no debate among the respected, well-published, peer-reviewed scientific community that any of this creationist bull$hite has any scientific merit whatsoever. Don't talk about "articles published in Scientific journals".

When one (just one! I'm holding my breath here!) is published in Nature, Science, or any one of hundred other international, respected scientific Journals (e.g. Geology, Proceedings of the Royal Academy, take your pick), then I'll start to take it seriously.

I could write an article on the Tooth Fairy and have it published in a so-called "Scientific Journal". I'd probably be given a podium on Answersingenesis.org. Wouldn't make it right though.

Wise up, wanker.

Crap.

So that means I can take a 2006 US Quarter, put it in 500 million year old dirt, and say it was time travel?

Dating methods are based on 3 unprovable and questionable assumptions:

1) That the rate of decay has been constant throughout time.
2). That the isotope abundances in the specimen dated have not been altered during its history by addition or removal of either parent or daughter isotopes
3) That when the rock first formed it contained a known amount of daughter material
("Radioisotopes and the age of the earth" pg v)

http://www.angelfire.com/mi/dinosaurs/ca...

yes, it's an article written by a creation-ist, but it gives more food for thought on the whole "Scientific Dating Methods are innacurate" theories becuase it gives evidence and then it cites the source. Many of them are articles published in Scientific journals.

Remember, everyone, take it all with a grain of salt. In one hundred years our great great grandchildren will be laughing at us for things that we

Welcome my old friend Overmann, of Medal fame.

Good to see I'm not the only here one scanning the horizon (with my sniper rifle) for young-earth creationists who are drawn to this kind of bunk like flies around $hite.

Having said that, most of the children (13-17 years old) on here seem drawn to the aliens/time travel hypothesis. Equally idiotic as young-earth creationism, but without the agenda. You know what I mean.

The Antikythera Mechanism's picture shoes gears that are toothed, but not round. How would that work, pray tell?

And the fossilized handprint? Lots of animals have similar makes... who's to say that it's human?

Aahahahah!!!!! Oh, nixon666, how close-minded are you? Obviously those things are false, even though the Antikythera Mechanism is in the Greek Musuem! And here's the kicker, I've seen it before in person! Think next time before you decide to shoot something down. Oh, and those giant stone balls, yeah, they were on the History Channel, with documented videotape evidence.

preface: im not in any way arguing for or against any religion or lack there of.

but this logic isnt any better than the "stubborn, close minded" manner they accuse religions of.
"we found a human hand in a fossil. but we say the fossil was over 1 million years old! there MUST have been humans back then, because we said so!"
is not much different than "there is no such thing as evolution because the Bible says so! there MUST have been a creation!"
both of them start with one belief, and assume other things using information from that belief.

theres another possiblity that ppl in the future have time machines, and go back to those periods to site see, and accidently leave stuff behind

i beleive in aliens, and aliens created the human, and the first humans called those aliens "god". But aliens don't want to interfere with their creation. Humans cannot see the aliens so human conclude that these aliens don't exist.

^^^ im not saying that im right, i mean there is a possibility that aliens did it, but that is just what i think is most likely.
