Do dinosaurs have a gravity problem?

Published on Mar 21, 2017

In today’s episode, we ask author Ted Holden (“Cosmos in Collision”) to explore the controversial question: Do dinosaurs pose a gravity problem?

Scientists tell us that for about 165 million years on planet Earth, fantastic and often giant creatures called dinosaurs ruled our world. Of course, the largest of the dinosaurs dwarfs any animal that walks the earth today. Yet consensus science tells us that earth’s gravity was not weaker during the Mesozoic era.

How is this so?

TAP – Engineers realised that dinosaurs would have a problem walking on land.  So it was thought they must have lived in water.  This theory failed as they don’t have the right kind of feet.  The footprints discovered indicate animals two hundred feet long.  One dinosaur has an estimated weight of 180 tons.  What does weight-lifting science have to say?

The only way a dinosaur could cope would be if their muscles were far more efficient than what we have.

The only problem is the theory of weight/power hits limits at about 21,000 pounds in the present world.  Elephants are about 14,000 pounds/8 tons.

Elephants have to spend the whole day eating to support their size.

The diplodocus had a neck 50 feet long weighing 4,000 pounds.  How did they get blood to the head?

Many other observations made in the video.

An earlier video we saw said dinosaurs were a hoax.  This video doesn’t say that.  It doesn’t draw any conclusions, but the suggestion has to be that gravity then was much much less than it is today.  How that would happen is not explained.

For decades, many scientists have believed that asteroid bombardments, such as that which is thought to have killed the dinosaurs, occur on our planet at regular intervals of about every 26 million years. A popular theory was that a dim companion star called Nemesis would approach our Sun at 26 million year intervals, inevitably causing mass extinctions on Earth. However, the companion star has never been found, and a new scientific study confirms that such bombardments, if they do occur, are random. But a more fundamental question is, are impacts from space really the cause of extinction level events on our planet?

Climate Change in the Electric Universe
By David Talbott
Expect two hot topics on The Thunderbolts Project YouTube Channel this month, both likely to fuel further conversations within the Electric Universe community.It seems that the “global warming” question could be re-energized with the upcoming release on July 28 of Al Gore’s “Inconvenient” sequel.  Promotions have already begun. I mention this in light of our two Space News episodes by Wal Thornhill earlier this month, addressing climate change from an electrical perspective: “Global Warming in a Climate of Ignorance” and “Global Warming and Our Electric Sun.” Could the Electric Universe add critical insights on an issue that badly needs a scientific upgrade?

Any failure to see the electrical Earth-Sun connection can only distort the climate picture and make it easy to waste large sums of public funding pursuing a chimera. In the Electric Universe, there are no isolated islands in space, no corners of the universe free from electrical connectivity. By going public with the Earth-Sun electrical contribution to “climate change,” perhaps the Electric Universe community could help political leaders avoid an embarrassing and costly mistake on a scientific question that DOES deserve attention.

On another front, just ten days ago we posted a video introduction to the “impossible dinosaurs” question: “Do Dinosaurs Pose a Gravity Problem?”  Seems the theme has caught on, attracting more than 20,000 viewers its first week. We will definitely have more to say on this issue.

    Funny. Dinosaurs are taught as an absolute given. May be they are, but I do enjoy those questioning givens. Is it true there is a huge business, especially in China, in dinosaur bone fossil reproduction?
