Hmmm.... maybe a giant flood happened and most of them were killed that way. Lots of people would have died at the same time, except perhaps 8. Floods don't make fossils.
    ,Uh, yeah they do. Just like the poor folks buried by Vesuvius. And if dinosaurs were wiped out by THE FLOOD, then their remains would have been deposited on the earth when the waters receded, or swept into the oceans. Dinosaurs would not have fossilized sitting on land, and would a few thousand years even be enough time for fossilization to occur?

    That evolution debate pretty much set the gold standard for evolution debates. I can see why Kim doesn't want a redo - we couldn't possibly recreate that.

    The population of people on the earth during the time the dinosaurs would have been living was much smaller than today. They had a lot more options of where to live. Not a huge chance that one would have been caught in a volcano with a dinosaur. I would imagine they probably stayed away from the dinosaurs as much as possible.

    How do you know? What climates were even hospitable for humans at that time? What continent did they live on? Had the continents separated during this time you imagine? There is a lot of imagining, that's all I'm sayin.

    You do know the continents are still connected right?

    I am not understanding this.. I thought you said fossilization happens quickly?

    No, what I said was an animal would have to be quickly covered up by earth or whatever for fossilization to happen, like in a mudslide or falling into a tar pit or after an asteroid strike. Fossilization can't happen on top of the ground with lots of air. Lack of air, light, parasites, etc. are the ideal conditions for fossilization.

    Actually fossilization can occur within 50 years. Like this hat.



    ''Fossil'' Hat - Answers in Genesis

    or this hammer.
    Fossilized Hammer: Found in a formation famous for its dinosaurs, supposed to be 140 million years old (lower cretaceous).

    There is a well in England that can petrify a teddy bear in 3-5 months.

    Scientists are aware that different types of rock can form at different speeds, some quickly and some slowly. It's important to keep in mind what type of rock we are talking about when we talk about the speed at which it forms. You can't just assume that because one type of rock forms quickly, another does too. Concrete hardens over night, but that doesn't mean that all types of rock harden over night. Also, I would be interested to know if that hat is a true fossil meaning the actual material of the hat has turned to stone, or what seems more likely that its a felt hat with rock stuck to it on the outside.
