'Missing link' dinosaur unearthed in Utah.

For a better picture, (but less complete story) see here.
Of course, if there's no evolution, how do you explain these fossils' existence -- is God really Loki or Coyote?

Dinosaurs, grid lock, and D&D
by kmarchal / May 5, 2005 12:46 AM PDT

If you like dinosaurs here is one close to home
Dinosaur Valley State Park, located just northwest of Glen Rose in Somervell County.
If you have not been to the Smithsonian go see the Dinosaurs At The Smithsonian stay at the Residence Inn Greenbelt. They also have a shuttle to take you to the Greenbelt Metro Station.

and if you like to read
the Delaware Basin is interesting read imo

now to bite the worm

I still don't understand the grid lock of Creation vs Evolution

On October 22, 1996, in a message to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Pope John Paul II acknowledged the significance of the mainstream theory of evolution. But his overall tone was cautious. And that evolution was now "more than just a hypothesis," as he was widely reported to have said is possibly a mistranslation of "more than one hypothesis". In any case the Pope went on to say, "Rather than the theory of evolution, we should speak of several theories of evolution."

Pope Pius XII stated so on 22 November 1951, early in the development of the theory. Either way, as long as the conversation keeps to the near side of the big bang, the theory holds nothing for science and religion to disagree about.

Yet why is it so hard for someone to think that without the guidance of an outside power who could have had a hand in developing a meaningful universe. Example. In that with time you can randomly beat on a keyboard, cut and paste at random you could never type out The Tempest without any outside guidance.

And Loki are we playing Dungeon and Dragons.

First, the catholic church is still coming to terms with the whole Earth going around the Sun thing, so give them a little time to work with 5th grade biology.

Second, 'The Tempest' was written without any outside guidance.

Well, I didn't say that, so, no, I'm not.

Your initial statement was vague as to what you had in mind as "outside guidance". I interpreted your meaning to be that "The Tempest", Shakespeare, quill, paper, and society were all "inside".

Hi, K.

Actually the Catholic Church is less opposed to science (unless, of course, it's medical science trying to improve the human condition by "unnatural" means) than many of the Protestant Fundamentalist churches. As for Loki, he and Coyote are "trickster gods" in two different myth systems, Norse and Amerind.
