New Discovery: Dreadnoughtus, The Impossibly Huge Dinosaur - Part 1 of 2
By impossibly huge, I mean truly impossible according to the standard model of cosmology.
The Washington Post
Scientists have discovered the fossilized remains of a new long-necked, long-tailed dinosaur that has taken the crown for largest terrestrial
animal with a body mass that can be accurately determined.
Measurements of bones from its hind leg and foreleg revealed that the animal was 65 tons, and still growing when it died in the Patagonian hills of
Argentina about 77 million years ago.
“To put this in perspective, an African elephant is about five tons, T. rex is eight tons, Diplodocus is 18 tons, and a Boeing 737 is around 50
tons,” said study author and paleontologist Kenneth Lacovara at Drexel University. “And then you have Dreadnoughtus at 65 tons.”
Drexel University professor Ken Lacovara is quoted in the video
as saying, “a dinosaur in
this mass range, 65 tons, is really pushing the limit as to what is physiologically possible… ” Yeah, “pushing the limit” – as in
breaking the limit
Just looking at what we know to be true about physiology today tells us that such massive beasts could not exist in Earth’s present environment.
Giraffes, which are the tallest land animal, cannot get any taller because their heart wouldn’t be able to pump their blood high enough to reach
their brains. If the giraffes were any taller, their veins would burst under the immense blood pressure. Giraffes have their own built in pressure
suit, like a fighter pilot’s g-suit, that compresses their lower anatomy to keep their blood from pooling in their legs.
The relatively low air pressure and relatively high gravity we experience on Earth today make super-sized land animals a physical
Scientist David Esker has done a tremendous amount of excellent research on this topic. Esker identifies
four key problems
with the standard model of dinosaur evolution, which in turn implies
problems for the standard model of cosmology.
There are four problem areas illustrating why the largest dinosaurs and pterosaurs present a paradox to science:
-Inadequate bone strength to support the largest dinosaurs
-Inadequate muscle strength to lift and move the largest dinosaurs
-Unacceptable high blood pressure and stress on the heart of the tallest dinosaurs
-Aerodynamics principles showing that the pterosaurs should not have flown
While I fully concur with Esker’s list of problems, I emphatically disagree with his proposed solution to these problems. To address these
problems, Esker theorizes that at one point Earth’s atmosphere must have been as dense as water. Esker goes into great detail on each of those four
points. I highly recommend reading over his site to get a better understanding of why these problems cannot simply be written off as mainstream
paleontologists have been doing for decades now.
There are only two possible theoretical explanations for these findings:
The Earth’s atmosphere was as thick as water or the Earth’s gravity was significantly less than it is today.
Water-thick air density strikes me as completely absurd, yet this is what Esker proposes because it is the only possible theory allowed for in the
present standard model of cosmology. Of course, if the standard model of cosmology is wrong, then there’s no reason to assume air density is behind
these ultra-large sized dinosaurs rather than a lower gravity field. The lower gravity field makes far more sense if the idea is allowed to be
It has been known for a long time that astronauts grow taller
while they are
in space due to the lower gravity field. The reduced pressure allows for their spines to lengthen, causing them to grow.
The water-thick air argument is a take on the “all dinosaurs must have lived in water” argument that mainstream paleontologists correctly
when it was put forth by cellular
biologist Brian J. Ford to explain these issues.
It is important to note that physicists still have no idea what causes gravity.
In physics, General Relativity assumes gravity is a function of so-called bending spacetime. Spacetime is a purely mathematical construct, it’s not
a real physical entity. In order to tie General Relativity’s mathematical description of gravity to Special Relativity, a real physical system must
be described. This has never been accomplished, and never will be
Supposedly a mysterious “massless” particle called a graviton is theorized to be the gravitational force carrier at the atomic level. The Fermi
National Accelerator Laboratory defines
as being, “entirely theoretical constructs that delicately walk the knife-edge precipice between the domains of scientific respectability and the
shady world of hand waving.”

Quantum gravity (QG) is a field of theoretical physics that seeks to describe the force of gravity according to the principles of quantum
The current understanding of gravity is based on Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity, which is formulated within the framework of
classical physics. On the other hand, the nongravitational forces are described within the framework of quantum mechanics, a radically different
formalism for describing physical phenomena based on probability. The necessity of a quantum mechanical description of gravity follows from the fact
that one cannot consistently couple a classical system to a quantum one.
Even if you believe the standard model cosmology is awesome and absolutely correct in every respect, I’m not sure how anyone could write off the
possibility of a lower gravity field when we don’t fully understand gravity in the standard model now.
