I have only looked at the article it has on the "permian Bear tracks" but i may check it later.
It would be quite neat if Bears did live at such a time and where so ancient, but it could very well have been a bear-like Proto-mammal or a proto-mammal with bear like feet (back feet: Plantigrade. Forefeet:semi plantigrade)Or it could have been a early mammal (if that is possible for that period of time) that was bear-like, but I've never seen proof for Permian mammals, let alone for a permian bear species.
Now THere where animals that where not of the bear family, yet where strikingly like a Bear (the horrendous and gigantic Sarkastodonfor example) but they where not mesozoic animals, but cenozoic.
BTW: what are the "claptrap"? Old Classics?
Edited by LudoRephaim, : No reason given.
"The Nephilim where in the Earth in those days..." Genesis 6:4
My thought on how they became extinct is when the flood happened.
quote:Gen 6:19 -- And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee: they shall be male and female.
This statement is completely lacking in evidence. However, I just thought I would also point out the theological mistake you have made as well. If all the animals were saved during the flood, then the dinasours would still be here. Perhaps you'd like to start another thread to discuss this, but I will stop it here.
