Ninny Break: No, This is not a Dinosaur

Image result for images of real dinosaurs found whale shark

This enormous fish, a whale shark, the biggest fish in the world, is not a dinosaur. Honest.

I stumbled upon this picture when it was used to advertise a youtube video titled, “Ten Real Dinosaurs Found.” It’s over half an hour long, and that’s why I haven’t posted it.

The whale shark really is that big, but it is not a dinosaur. For all its colossal size, it is a harmless plankton-feeder. There are also photo-shopped pictures of a whale shark attacking people, to eat them. That has never happened. Plankton-eaters do not eat large mammals.

What does it say about our general education level, that a fish is presented to us as a dinosaur? I mean, how dumb is that?

Nature is interesting enough without the baloney.

I’m Mr. Nature, and I’ve approved this message.

    There is a former science teacher that is also a young-earth creationist and teaches not only that dinosaurs were contemporaries of humans, but that they still exist. His arguments are compelling, but that doesn’t make them true. As I see it, there is enough wonderful, amazing evidence of a Creator without trying to improve upon the facts.

    It would be fun to see a stegosaurus in the flesh, but I’m not expecting it to happen anytime soon. 🙂
