Does every episode of this show really need it's own thread here? Yeah ok it's mildly entertaining, mostly because of the guy with the hair. But c'mon. It's television. It's not real.

Standing by for hate mail

Sorry mate there has already been a thread on this episode. The episode itself was not bad but brought nothing groundbreaking to the table. Just stuff thats already been well discussed here on ATS. Such as the the carving of the Stegasauraus and the dinosaur footprints walking alongside human footprints (which i'm pretty sure has been debunked)

Definately worth a watch though for anyone whos not already looked into the whole 'dinosaur conspiracy' thing. If you can call it that

Heres the already existing thread - Aliens and Dinosaurs

The disappearance of big dinos, and preference for smaller ones, might have been due to atmostpheric and climate changes. Consider atmosphere being much thicker and big dinos being adjusted to that, and higher oxygen levels. And once that atmosphere is radically changed thinner - its the big ones that are the declining part of the animal population.

Its a bit same as taking a quick walk to Mount Everest. You will need to walk slower and will have it hard to run. The same might have happened with the big dinos. This is the way, only small dinos survived, what we see as birds, crocs and turtles today.

And could - underlining "could" - be the way if aliens wanted to "surgically" remove the big dinos off the planet. But there could've been several natural processes leading to the same result as well (e.g. if a big asteroid hit the planet, causing part of the atmosphere to escape, and reducing its pressure as well (dinos may have lived with an atmosphere with up to eight times the atmospheric pressure than what we have today).

Considering cataclysmic event reducing that atmosphere most certainly will lead to major changes in the fauna. Big animals having it tougher to move, fly and survive.

And this surgical move may have been the whole point. This is the way to "engineer" this planet for becoming eco-friendly for humans and other primates.

As I posted in the previous AA & Dinosaurs thread posted several days ago:

Originally posted by Druscilla
Something to consider: When AA pegged Dinosaur State Park in Glen Rose Texas on the map, they starred some spot on the far southeast coastal area of Texas.

In reality Glen Rose, is located just southwest of Fort Worth, closer to Central Texas.

The fossils that are described as 'radioactive' in this episode are typically so usually because they have been permineralized/replaced by the radioactive, uranium-bearing mineral carnotite.
They weren't irradiated by nuclear dirty bombs.
The mineral material which replaced the bones during permineralization was just radioactive, and only just such.

You can find this process mentioned HERE
and also HERE in a book titled Introduction to the Study of Dinosaurs, particularly on page 209, as well as many other places in University level study materials, and even armchair reading publications if you care to educate yourself about the finer points of Paleontology.

Another error made in this episode is where they describe Archeopteryx as the ONLY flying dinosaur.
One need only read over the wiki article Pterosaur to see this statement made by AA as being false.

Further, in regard to the Ica Stones depicting dinosaurs and humans cooexisting:

The main proponent associated with the Ica Stones is the late Dr. Javier Cabrera (deceased 2001) who is credited with popularizing the stones as well as displaying and caring for them in the museum that was contained within his house in Ica. Cabrera termed these stones “gliptoliths” and posited that they were created by “Gliptolithic Man” who came to Earth from the Pleiades. He first came upon the infamous stones when he was given one for his birthday in the early 1960s. The beautiful stone interested him and he was able to buy more from a farmer in the region. The farmer brought Cabrera more and more stones but would not reveal how he was making them, eventually leading Cabrera to become convinced of the authenticity of the stones.

As the Ica Stones gained international popularity, the Peruvian government was forced to crack down on the law governing huaqueros (grave robbers) and those who sell antiquities on the black market. As a result the farmer was arrested, faced imprisonment but avoided jail by eventually admitting to being the one to create the numerous Ica Stones.


Take note that Doctor Javier Cabrera was giving MONEY to the farmer for 'finding' these stones. This creates a market where by demand/interest then created a supply readily fabricated by the farmer (and associates).
Please also consider the confession of the farmer making a statement in regard to these forgeries.

Like so many that prefer to continue to believe in something despite contrary evidence, Doctor Javier Cabrera continued to believe the lie, and thus his continued interest facilitated further demand, which precipitated an easy supply readily fabricated by locals for the easy money in exchange for some rocks.

Here also is the wiki on the stones: Ica Stones wiki

If AA got these wrong, in just this one episode, what else are they getting wrong?

In my opinion, this episode examples how close the series is coming to running dry such that it doesn't even really try to cover how hard it is trying grab for any purchase to hold on onto; even those that are pure fantasy and outright lies.

The ICA stone story they should've dropped.

However, there are plenty of other anomalies they could've brought up.

All of this needs to be taken with snip of salt (preferably with lemon and tequila), since creationists use many of these for their mantra (nothing against or in favor for that one), but occasionally engage in outright forgeries for that cause or abuse of forged items (plus so many others are doing the same). Also, in late 1800s, a whole lot of sensational "discoveries" were made - and made up, just for sake of publicity and eventually money.

Despite of that, there exists indeed some interesting paths for investigation - which they in this episode could have worked out slightly better. Such as this from National Geographic (however without aliens).

Geo-engineering - for making jurassic world human-friendly - that could've discovered several interesting angles (see my earlier post).
