Ice Age Armadillos the Size of Cars, Fossil Shows

Giant Armadillo Fossil in Peru As we’ve noted previously in the “Mega Fauna” section of s8int.com, it wasn’t just the dinosaurs who got huge in the past–many of the same animals living today were of huge size in historical times.

What accounts for that in evolutionary theory? Nothing, really. But, from a Biblical prespective, it makes sense to consider that conditions on earth must have been quite different–prior to the flood of Noah than they are today–or to put a even finer point on it–before “the fall”.

This giant armidillo fossil found in Peru is the size of a Volkswagon Beetle. Click here to read article

Imagine a Jurrasic Park movie with a T-rex “chasing” an Apatosaurus who also can only move at 5 or 6 miles per hour with the added disadvantage of being unable to move his head on its 25 foot neck above his shoulders! Maybe T-rex’s prey would just die of boredom! :0)

In a recent article in Scientific American with the subtext ” Everything you thought you knew about dinos is Wrong”, they argue that T-rex was too big to move quickly, (making him not so fearsome if you could get away by ambling) and that long necked dinos could not lift their heads. Not surprising that the same guys who arrogantly lecture us about dinos change their ” facts” every few minutes, but maybe they should reconsider their view that conditions on earth haven’t changed. Lowered gravity could turn T-rex back from a carrion eater to an actual predator.

Cloned CellsThe first cloned human embryos to be created in Britain – and the first to be grown in the West – were unveiled by scientists yesterday.

The news that a team at the Centre for Life, in Newcastle upon Tyne, had created three human clones, the most advanced being a female five-day-old embryo the size of the full stop at the end of this sentence, was announced as a South Korean team disclosed a much more significant milestone.

To the dismay of opponents of such research, the Koreans have succeeded in the efficient creation of more than 30 cloned human embryos – regardless of the age, sex and infirmity of the person being cloned. Click Here for the Remainder of this Article …..News Telegraph


“Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.”

Psalm 94
