I think I was eight-years-old the first time I saw a dinosaur footprint in the ground. I knew dinosaurs existed before then, but that was the first time I saw evidence with my own eyes. I was on a exploration trip with my Girl Scouts troop and we visited a place where dinosaurs had once walked. The footprint was next to a creek at the base of a mountainside and I could not get over how big it was. See, I’d seen dinosaurs in museums and knew they were big, but I think in the back of my mind I didn’t think those were real bones. I figured they were like the model dinosaurs my brothers and I used to put together, only better painted. But seeing the footprint in the ground like that made it undeniable. Which is only one of the reasons why it is so hard for me to stomach the fact that there are dinosaur deniers out there. Yeah. There are people who don’t believe dinosaurs existed, and that is horrifying.

do you believe that dinosaurs were real? this t-rex skeleton certainly proves they were!

There Are People Who Don’t Believe Dinosaurs Existed, And That Is Horrifying

First off, the fact that we have to tell any grown adult that dinosaurs did, indeed, exist is more than horrifying, it’s actually scary. I don’t know if denial comes from being brought up to believe science isn’t real, or something else entirely, but finding some sort of conspiracy theory behind something as truly huge as dinosaurs is a step too far.

I get that for religious reasons, or maybe mental reasons sometimes people don’t believe in what’s in front of their face. Even with overwhelming evidence. And if these people only spoke to other whackadoos we’d be fine, but in the age of the internet, they finally have a voice to spread their vitriol as far and wide as they wish to spread it. And because most of us think they are crazy, their message gets out. We see it and our disbelief is so strong that we have to share it with others. Like, “Can you see what this crazy person is saying?”

But then their message gets to someone who maybe doesn’t understand science. Or reason. Or someone who is already prone to paranoid thoughts. And then we’e got more people who are being sucked down the rabbit hole of believing there is a government conspiracy to make the world believe in dinosaurs. Mother flipping dinosaurs.

Or what about the flat Earthers?

Or those who don’t think we landed on the moon?

How about those who think climate change isn’t real even though Antartica is LITERALLY falling apart.

This is terrifying!

Never in our lives have we had the scientific equipment and minds to truly examine the world around us, and instead of believing in these findings, and the actual physical evidence that’s out there, there are people who water down the message and make it so maybe those who would otherwise try to understand start to have doubts.

The problem with that? Suddenly parents stop vaccinating their children. Suddenly governments stop funding carbon emission regulations. Suddenly we live in a world where professional athletes are using their platform to tell people that the Earth is flat.

And people are believing them.

If that isn’t as scary to you as it is to me, I’d be horrified to know what your nightmares are like!

And because this is a thing, too…

  1. Your level of ignorance is astounding. Antarctica isn’t “Literally” falling apart, in fact it’s getting colder. One part is warming due to an underground alien city. Global warming isn’t real. If you look at the temperature records of the Earth going back further you will see the world heats up and cools by itself. It’s got nothing to do with man other than “selectively” looking at the recent rise and saying look the sky is falling. Dinosaurs clearly didn’t exist either. They’re totally fake. You’ve just been brought up in a world of lies. The Holocaust didn’t happen either. You attack the people who KNOW these things without looking into it yourself. Why do you feel the need to attack people with different views? Because you’re truly SCARED to know the truth. That’s all it is.

  2. I dont get why someone not believing in something they’ve never seen is so mind blowing. Rather I think dinosaur are fake or not, what’s it to you? Whah does it change? Who does it harm? They serve NO purpose whatsoever.

  4. Typical evangelist line. If it doesn’t fit into their imaginary world just deny it.

  5. I don’t know why people think:
    A) dinosaurs are fake
    B) the earth is flat
    C) evolution is a sham
    S) the moon landing was a hoax

  6. You think dinosaurs are real based on fake man made bones. Grow up you idiot.

    1. @rofl, right! “The foot print made it undeniable” it doesn’t take much to convince people of anything.You can piss on them and it rain.

  7. Oh gee, a blogger went to a museum and science told her dinosaurs exist. You sold me! Now go hop on a brontosaurus and take a victory lap.

    1. Lol you think carbon dating is a hoax. Haha yes sure all dinosaurs are made up by a secret rich person who secretly benifits from all the dinosaurs in the museams paying for all of the fake archeologists all over the globe. It’s all one big hoax! Ps- dinosaurs are mentioned in the Bible if that was your rebuttal. See King James Version 1611 the word dinosaur didn’t exist so they thought they were dragons and they knew this in 1611 now get with the program

    2. @Jim, The Bible? this is what you’re putting up as evidence of Dinosaurs? Someone will be with you shortly, please take a seat.

  8. The dinosaur girl doesn’t really know how to present a good argument does she? I’ll give you that one. However she does have a fact correct. The theory, or rather musings, of Alfred Russel Wallace, contemporary of Darwin and co-author of Origin of Species, was the first to mention the theory of dinosaurs only a few years before the first fossil was found. I can see her point in thinking it is a little fishy….and it is, indeed a little fishy.
    I’m not saying that I don’t believe in dinosaurs. However, to argue for one side, you must know the other.
    Granted, there are a lot of people who disbelieve in dinosaurs for reasons that lack…well, reason, they are only repeating, in a less articulate manner what they have heard from those who can actually present a good argument for their beliefs. Religious explanations and metal disorders excepted. Instead of insulting them, maybe you should research why they are saying this and offer a good rebuttal. And no, “that guy in the lab coat said so” isn’t a good argument. Neither is “there’s tons of research and documentation” without being specific.

    I’m not trying to insult you, however is is a bit pretentious to assume that everyone believes the same thing to the point of not even offering a valid argument other than,”can you believe how dumb these people are? Like, dinosaurs, omg! Everyone believes in dinosaurs!”
    I do question the existence of dinosaurs as they have been explained to us by the experts. I could even offer a third and fourth theory to adequately explain these fossils. It’s clear that some massive creatures existed far enough in the past that would allow their bones to become material other than plain ol’ bone. Unfortunately and erroneously, the narrative that is packaged and encased along side these fossils and shipped to the museums is possibly fabricated. It’s presupposed that to believe in the standard dinosaur model, you must also BELIEVE in the THEORY evolution. (just thought i’d point out that it IS theory and a great deal of belief is required) It is also a little fishy how those tie in together, now isn’t it?
    You could say that Darwin and Wallace were creating their own Jurassic Park. Who’s to say that they didn’t seize the opportunity to offer a “formal” explanation, for something that was previously unexplained, to suit their agendas?

    Or perhaps I’m just an uneducated twit.
