YES! YES! YES! Incredibly true.
Tiptup, I hate to say this but that is one of the stupidest things I've heard you say. Fossils most certainly can tell the age of dinosaurs, and there are tons of souls on this planet who can tell that.
Actually, it can only give an estimate, and it may be completely wrong. There is no sure-fire 100% accurate way to tell. I can't possibly believe that we existed at teh same time though. Humans tend to record things they see, and have done so for thousands of years. If Dinosaurs were there at the same time there'd be some cave paintings or something with lots of Dinosaurs.
we did descend from freaking apes
You can't just test things like that. Evolution itself is just a theory, we can't know for sure that it's true. I believe it does, and many scientists do also, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's true. Lots of people take the bible literally too.
Dinosaurs did all die from an impact with a meteor near Mexico 65 million years ago.
Also just a theory, and alot of scientists actually think it was the result of dramatic climate change.
Palin is stupid for being a reigious freak, I mean, she literally believes that Noah put 2 of every animal on a boat and repopulated the world!
Good luck gathering all of the insects.
OK, tell me who I'm talking about for a second, ok?
He was born on December 25th.
He was born of a virgin.
He had 12 disciples.
He sacrificed himself for his peoples sins.
He was resurected 3 days later.
That is the pagan God Mithra, which was believed thousands of years before Jesus!
Most if not all of the events in the bible have already been told in other religions!

Do you want me to tell you what I find the christian community is largely composed of? Actually, I'll leave it there, I could write alot more on why I think christianity is stupid and hypocritical, but to avoid being massively offensive, I won't...... For now.
On another note....wow. You guys really get my thinking side going.
