Perhaps dinosaurs have collective consciousness. Yes. I believe that is the case.

....

So you now propose something then instantly believe it? Thank you for showing your complete lack of zetetic method in one post.

I rather think of it as a good demonstration of how the "zetetic method" is practiced on this site.

I propose he probably should stick to the lower fora. Yes. Now I instantly believe that is the case as well. 
I saw a slight haze in the hotel bathroom this morning after I took a shower, have I discovered a new planet?

Ichi, your posting in the upper fora has slowly become a disgrace to FE theory. I say this in the most serious manner. Your suggestion of ridiculous ideas without any real evidence harms FE theory in a way that I can no longer tolerate. I will not have a debate with you because I know your methods and know that your insincerity makes you as hard headed as CR90, but I will put forth that you need to reconsider what you are doing. Either return to serious debate or leave the upper fora to people that have something to contribute.

I have abandoned the upper fora simply because the debate has moved from factual to conjecture, and ridiculous conjecture is not my strong suit. I know you are a bit new here, but at a time I was a firm contributor to the upper fora.

As a moderator I would suggest you stop ridiculing me and address my point directly. I suggest you follow your own advice and stick to the lower fora. Being a moderator does not give you the right to spam the upper fora under the guise of sincerity.

Edit: As I recall when you joined this site you mostly stuck to the lower forum, aside from a few debates where you were strictly asking questions you stayed out of the upper fora. The only contribution you have made sense then is to make baseless untestable claims. Please stick to the lower fora with your spam.

Thats quite a jump to make within the span of one post.  Why do you think this is the case?

We know for a fact that dinosaurs worked together in building of boats and castles. How could they do so? It is pretty clear that they employed some form of tele-cerebral-communication (TCC) which is beyond our understanding.

When I see a flock of dinosaurs diving and swerving together in large number in the sky, I am often struck by the extent to which they seem to move with single-minded coordination and purpose, but so too do men when they march about or dance. I conceive that the minds of dinosaurs are linked to the same extent as those of men, that as Jung mentioned they have a cultural collective consciousness, that they have minds of their own but that on occassion these minds may link by way of their mental pathways or their cultural convergences.
I agree James. Even more curious is the social structures and concepts they uphold. Though there may be no physical distinction of territory on a tree, they are still able to recognize ownership of a region up to the inch. This is true across species, new members of the area, and newborn avian dinosaurs. Curious since they are surely not present at 'home' all the time.

Using a computer model with a few simple rules allows us to model perfectly avian flocking behavior.

Ah I misread your earlier post my bad.


To clarify, I said a human modeled the behavior on a computer, not that a computer modeled the behavior. Computers don't even understand the concept of bird so that would be ridiculous.

I agree, no computer has modeled the behavior but we understand the basic rules governing their behavior leading to the flocking instinct, or at minimum a set of rules that leads to the same result.

Modeling avian flocking behavior is not the same as modeling avian behavior.

Either way, Ichi is being intentionally pedantic and obtuse right now.

Oh yes, you also dropped out the whole "flocking" part of it.

You are now up to the level of parsifal on debating. Peace.

Allow me to point out yet again that no one has presented any evidence whatsoever that ancient dinosaurs were capable of building boats and crossing oceans, for the sake of moving this conversation back on topic.

It explained something about fossils of dinosaurs being found somewhere or something. Oh yeah the continents moving.

Why dinosaur fossils are found on separate land masses if they don't move.

Allow me to point out yet again that no one has presented any evidence whatsoever that ancient dinosaurs were capable of building boats and crossing oceans, for the sake of moving this conversation back on topic.
The evidence is the presence of like fossils in separate areas, much like the evidence for continental drift are the presence of like fossils in separate areas.

The main difference, however, is that continental drift (plate tectonics) can be seen in action.  I don't know of anyone who has ever seen a dinosaur build a ship to cross an ocean.

Except continental drift is also supported by plate tectonics and paleomagnetism.

Indeed.  They are competing theories.  I for one hold plate tectonics and paleomagnetism (in a certain modified form) are a more likely than super intelligent dinosaurs, however there is nothing impossible about dinosaur boats;  its just I would like to see a little more hardy evidence before I talk of it in the zeal others do.
