Serious? Imagine that.

Those billionaires with their money.



"I think the 1% have too much money and really don't know what to do with it."


I think any normal human wouldn't really know what to do with billions of dollars, I guess someone had to try the Dinosaur thing at some stage


Please..If I had that much money I would use it to develop free energy and genetic/stem cell research.

Unlimited energy and long lives then populate the oceans with floating cities and then move to space.

Lack of imagination is the problem not lack of ideas.

but because non indiginious animals can wreak havok on an ecosystem.


For sure.

On those grounds I understand and support 'not playing God'.

As long as each application is analyzed fairly and not met with the all encompassing stone wall that is "don't play God" then I have no qualms with certain ones getting denied.

There just might be a way this guy could get his Jurassic Park for an awful lot less money ( that's if this DNA malarkey works anyway). It has been suggested that there are surviving specimens omegalania prisca in southern Australia. It is/was a close relative of the Comodo dragon, only about 35 feet long, there are reports of sightings of lizards of 20 feet long, and the local aborigines have stories of hunting it in living memory.
The youngest fossil finds were in south Australia and only about 40 000 years old. As far as I'm aware there has never been a serious expedition in search of it - going into the outback looking for a 35 foot ambush predator might just feel a tad daunting - but organising one seems a lot more feasible than years of expensive experiments with negligible chance of success. Plenty of money left over for doing something positively useful too.

Seeing a dinosaur would be amazing. I hope he completes his plan in my lifetime and nothing like WWIII happens to interrupt it.

There was a paleontologist several years ago that soaked a dinosaur bone in an acid wash to clean it and when she came back 23 minutes later the marrow had been revived and blood vessels could be seen and most of the books are having to be rewritten because of her discovery...


Wow that really is incredible.
I found the link regarding it and really is a great read

www.smithsonianmag.com...

In the course of testing a B. rex bone fragment further, Schweitzer asked her lab technician, Jennifer Wittmeyer, to put it in weak acid, which slowly dissolves bone, including fossilized bone—but not soft tissues. One Friday night in January 2004, Wittmeyer was in the lab as usual. She took out a fossil chip that had been in the acid for three days and put it under the microscope to take a picture. “[The chip] was curved so much, I couldn’t get it in focus,” Wittmeyer recalls. She used forceps to flatten it. “My forceps kind of sunk into it, made a little indentation and it curled back up. I was like, stop it!” Finally, through her irritation, she realized what she had: a fragment of dinosaur soft tissue left behind when the mineral bone around it had dissolved. Suddenly Schweitzer and Wittmeyer were dealing with something no one else had ever seen. For a couple of weeks, Wittmeyer said, it was like Christmas every day.


Well that discovery caused alot of textbooks to have to be rewritten and alot of paleontologists were left in amazement. It is an amazing discovery. Makes you wonder, if science could get that wrong, what else could it get wrong?

Oh for the days of 9 ft sloths, 3 ft rabbits and 47 ft gators. You see at one time the earth was 25% smaller and gave off its EMF at a different Hertz. This with two atmospheres due to an ice or water canopy above the earth. Had the effect of a single cell divided nine times the first cell would not die. So the size of the very same creatures would under todays system be smaller. It is also the reason why people lived so long before Noah's in the bible.
What I would do for interest would be to set up a full size Tesla coil and send out the corrected EMFs if it could be done. Also I would look into sending out a selected low ultra sounds. Likely due to many animals being extinct. The sound on the roots of plants cause lemons to be the size of baseballs. Seeing such sounds have good effects on humans and bad if not corrected right. Many test would come both medical, on the ozone given off, what would be the best settings for international public use. Then building the flying platforms for weather, video, sound, flood lights like in the movie Dune, transportation and etc. Then bring in the futuristic artist for the real look. However *after* a new look at patents for corrected oxygenated clean water and delivery, Sewer, Trash disposal, communication. Sort of like what a straight looking little city would look, feel and live like all systems working together. The problem is Zardoz Speaks, "The gun is good, the penis is Evil". .

What's your point?

Methane is an effective green-house gas.

It would be interesting to see a living dinosaur and be able to bring back extinct species. Worked for North American buffalo, why not give it a try?


The North American Bison (there are no native buffalo in the New World), was never extinct. There have always been breeding populations, and those have simply been allowed to continue to breed.

Giant dinos couldn't even exist today.

This is all nothing but a fantasy, but it does show us who the ones are among us who need some science classes.

And why is this a fantasy? Give us some cold hard facts to back up your opinion.

I'll give you a star and flag despite the political bs you felt the need to include. Dinosaurs, any of them really coming back to life is something I've wished for long before Jurassic Park was even a gleam in Spielberg's eye. So yeah, make it happen, consequences be damned. If a T-Rex or whatever wrecked my house I'd be more fascinated by the animal than trying to figure out who I could sue.

I don't usually post before reading the whole thread but I'll make an exception for possible (not likely) dinosaurs coming back.

I am a rich guy, what to do with my moneys.... Hmmmm, feed some poor people? Nah, open up some schools for poor people to learn solid trades? Nah, I want me a dinosaur!

Maybe there is a good reason dinos are extinct. I think there is a fine line science needs to not cross, to me cloning animals is past that line. Especially prehistoric ones

I wish I was rich, but if I was there is no reason to put all of my money into one thing. Yes I want to help people, that would be most of it probably but no matter how altruistic you are there must be something that interests you on a personal level. If I'm a multibillionaire what's the harm in dropping a couple hundred million into fringe science?

But it has been "extinct" in many European areas for decades. Roughly 1½ months ago 7 Bisons was reintroduced on a Danish island. rewildingeurope.com...

I can't imagine how expensive it would be not only to clone dinosaurs but also maintain them. He's gonna need a lot more than a billion dollars. Regardless, if i could go I would in a heart beat
.
Also for cost, I'd imagine something like this would be able to get a lot of Government funding, but I would guess feeding costs wouldn't be that much more than a large Zoo, especially if they start small, also Herbivores would be cheap to feed as they could possibly eat the natural plant life..

Even if he did manage to successfully clone a small population of dinos they would be probably be wiped out by pathogens they have no immunity to. (Unless he keeps them in a sealed environment)

I just don't see any of this idea happening..But just imagine seeing something that's been extinct for millions of years living again, that would be awesome..peace,sugarcookie1

It's a publicity stunt for his new resort.

I dunno if it even needs a fake story to boast it... it's pretty insane already, it's got deep sea hovercrafts, a monorail, casino and even an airport for it!

Thing is, he's doing it to try create more money.

He's trying to use it to attract tourists to his dinosaur museum thing at his resort.

Well we all saw how we'll it turned out In Jurassic park...

History will repeat itself....

That is even though technically it was just a movie.

Hmm there was a thread that talks about the possibility of cloning dinosaurs here in ATS
