Forgive me but i'm a little close minded sometimes.
The megladon is a fictitious shark that resides in the mind of researchers.
There is no evidence that completely defines that this shark lived or was as big as a bus other than some and very few big teeth found.
There is absolutely no dna evidence of megladons.

That very well may be true. So tell it to member RussianScientists not me. He or she brought up megalodons. Besides, that doesn't have anything to do with our argument about colapsing systems.

Oh I keeps it real son!


Nice try. You sir, not me, said "if you remove sharks from the food chain". So if not extinct, what do you mean? Removed how? Were they all put in a giant pool? Alien abduction? What? It's your theory not mine. Don't get hung up on my interpretation of your statement. Replace extinct with "removed" if you like. My science is sound.


The Megalodon was just one species of many that went extinct. It was not all sharks. So that's a little different. However, the megalodon extinction along with others did lead to a food chain/ecosystem collapse. And like so many other times in history, a new one took over.


Yes, my "philosophy" may be "boringly worthless" but this is not philosophy, this is science.
edit on 1-9-2012 by Chi-and-Me because: oops


You don't keep it real, you aren't cool, and you can't follow the thread.

I quoted Nixie-nox from above saying:

"Actually, sharks are the pinnacle of the food chain. REmove the sharks, you remove the chain, no seafood.

And then how many families will starve to death? "

Unquote

I then stated as a reply to Nixie-nox, who it the one that stated "REmove the sharks"; in my reply to Nixie-Nox I stated "if you removed the sharks", as a reply to her/his statement ONLY.

If you check and/or read the thread above correctly instead of implying that I was making the statement, then you will realize that Nixie-Nox made the statement of removing the sharks.

So... don't get your panties all wet when you can't follow the thread correctly. I'm not hung up on your interpretation, because your interpretation is completely mixed up as I have just proved. Not only is your philosophy boringly worthless, so is your attempt to come to a real conclusion as to what transpired in this thread.

Really?

Then if you do a google search for "megalodon jaw for sale"; where do all the jaws come from?

Those are not actual jaw fossils, just reconstructions with actual fossil teeth implanted.
But fossil vertebrae have been found. Enough to determine it was a very large fish.

Actually you have your story wrong. The sharks are at the top of the food chain, but... if you removed the sharks from the food chain there would be all kinds of seafood and no one would be starving to death unless they ate sharks only.

As for your statements that only about 4 people a year die from shark attacks, that number is incorrect also. In 2011 there were 17 people recorded as being killed by sharks.

en.wikipedia.org...

There are many people killed by sharks that go unrecorded because no one was there to state what happened to those people that never came back.

Wiki states that there were confirmed around 1,333 recorded unprovoked shark attacks that lead to peoples deaths from 1580-2011. Of course those figures aren't telling the truth either. Lots of times when a ship or boat goes down at sea, the shark takes care of the crew and these deaths aren't recorded. So.... don't think that sharks only attack a few people on the beaches every year, because there are lots of boats that go down every year without survivors.

USS Indianapolis, July 30th, 1945 - approximately 600 killed by sharks
Cape San Juan, November 12th, 1943 - 695 killed by sharks
Nova Scotia, November 28th, 1942 - approximately 200 killed by sharks
Dona Paz, December 20th, 1987 - 4,375 fatalities with over 300 bodies recovered covered in shark bites
HMS Berkenhead, February 26th, 1852 - of approximately 630 people, 193 survived, the rest were taken by sharks within 3 miles of shore
Principessa Muldafa, October 25, 1927 - out of 1,265, approximately 295 died from shark attacks
La Seyne, November 14th 1909 - 101 people died from sharks attacking
HMS Valerian, 1926 - approximately 88 died from sharks attacking

That is only a list from 8 ships that went down, there are many others, and of course many boats go down every year of which no one returns. Life preservers kept many of these people afloat only to be eaten alive.

Many of you told people to stay away from the beaches because the beaches were the sharks domain; now I expect you'll be telling everyone to not take boat rides because the boats are in the sharks domain.

Yea, there it is. Nixie Nox and I share the same veiw on this. I disagree with YOUR view on an ocean removed of sharks. Not sure what your reading.

You are right about one thing...I'm not cool. I'm a dork! And proud of it! And forgive me for my panties being in a wad. I recently lost alot of weight and they are too big on me. They just keep wadding up.

Hi Phage, always nice to hear from you. Actually the only real megalodon shark jaw is the one in the YouTube video. The man has it for sale, and states it isn't a fake, and that more megalodon jaws were found where that one was found. I do have to admit it does look fake, but the man states that it isn't fake; unless by chance you have found out that it wasn't real after all.

The likely hood that it is real becomes slim when you take into account sharks are mostly held together with cartilage and not bone.
I am not qualified to say either way but i do know that i we will not have a definite answer until we have dna.

I do hope phage can shed some light on the subject.
As to this pertaining to the op it does because if great whites had an enemy before man would account for their own sustainability.

I do believe that once a shark taste human blood that they want more and that should be dealt with. At the same time i'm not gonna give them a chance to get me and if i did find myself in the water i would expect to be dinner. A balance has to be maintained in order for the survival of shark species and right now the finning of some is becoming more than one sided. I am torn because on one hand i have a destain for one world government but on the other hand i see no other way that global coorporation.

Hey, I hear where you are coming from, I watched a video on the finning of the sharks one time, and it was a terrible thing to see.

These money hungry bastards were pulling the sharks in and cutting off their fins for the money they were worth, and then in return throwing them back in the water without the ability to swim and basically they became bait to draw in more sharks which ate them; and those sharks were caught and thier fins were cut off and the cycle just kept going over and over.

Nice to hear from you deadeydick.

The man who created the jaw is dead.

The jaw is a reconstruction, modeled after its closest living relative the great white shark.

Hi Phage, yea I know that shark jaw is reconstructed, basically entirely fake except the teeth.

But... its still the YouTube video that I'm talking about. Apparently you missed the YouTube video, where the man is there stating that what you are seeing in the video is a "real" megalodon shark jaw, and it was for sale for $700,000, or best offer when you read the description below the YouTube video.

www.youtube.com...

Keep up the good work of keeping everyone correct in their posts and threads, I really enjoy reading the truth, and you always find the truth.
