Dinasaur

RIYADH: The 72-million-year-old dinosaur remains have been found in Saudi Arabia for the first time.

Remains were unearthed in the north-west of the region along the Red Sea coast.

Teeth from a 20-foot-long predator were discovered as well as tail bones from a giant herbivore “tyrannosaur”.

When the dinosaurs were alive, the Arabian landmass was largely under water and formed the northern coastal edge of the African continent.

Research doctor, from University in Sweden, who led a team of scientists studying the remains, said: “Dinosaur fossils are exceptionally rare in the Arabian Peninsula, with only a handful of highly fragmented bones documented this far.

“This discovery is important not only because of where the remains were found, but also because of the fact that we can actually identify them.

“Indeed, these are the first taxonomic-ally recognizable dinosaurs reported from the Arabian Peninsula.

Similar dinosaurs have been found in North Africa, Madagascar and South America, another researcher of the team said.

    NOT MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD! Evolutionary dating methods are not infallible science, are based on certain built-in assumptions, and have been proven to be contradictory and inconsistent. Please read my popular Internet article, ARE FOSSILS REALLY MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD?

    There is absolutely no proof of macro-evolution in the fossil record. The fossils of all species are found complete (not partially-evolved) with no evidence of actual transition from one kind to another. There are no fossils of fish, for example, with part fins, part feet to show that transition occurred from fins to feet. Besides this, partially-evolved species would be unfit for survival while waiting to be completed over millions of years.

    The fossils show that all life came into existence as complete and fully-formed from the beginning, which is only possible by creation.

    NATURAL LIMITS TO EVOLUTION: Only evolution within biological “kinds” is genetically possible (i.e. varieties of dogs, cats, etc.), but not evolution across biological “kinds” (i.e. from sea sponge to human). How could species have survived if their vital tissues, organs, reproductive systems, etc. were still evolving? Survival of the fittest actually would have prevented evolution across biological kinds! A true transitional form would be unfit for survival. For example, “if a leg of a reptile were to evolve (over supposedly millions of years) into a wing of a bird, it would become a bad leg long before it became a good wing” (Dr. Walt Brown, scientist and creationist). Survival of the fittest actually would have prevented evolution across biological kinds! Read my Internet article: WAR AMONG EVOLUTIONISTS! (2nd Edition).

    Natural selection doesn’t produce biological traits or variations. It can only “select” from biological variations that are possible and which have survival value. The real issue is what biological variations are possible, not natural selection. Only limited evolution, variations of already existing genes and traits, is possible. Nature is mindless and has no ability to design and program entirely new genes for entirely new traits. Evolutionists believe and hope that, over supposedly millions of years, random genetic mutations caused by environmental radiation will generate entirely new genes. This is total blind and irrational faith on the part of evolutionists. It’s much like believing that randomly changing the sequence of letters in a romance novel, over millions of years, will turn it into a book on astronomy! That’s the kind of blind faith macro-evolutionists have.

    Genetic information, like other forms of information, cannot arise by chance, so it is far more logical to believe that the genetic and biological similarities between species are due to a common Designer (Creator) who designed similar functions for similar purposes in all the various forms of life.
