I bet the Jews did this

Bugger, I was hoping to be the first to bring that revelation to the thread.

I am sure Petera will turn up saying that this was the jet engine of the cruise missile used to bring down the WTC towers.

I think it is pretty obvious that the explanation can only be that this is the 'Time Machine' as written about by H.G Wells, where the main character has obviously set the dial a little too far in the past and remained there. Only for this Victorian machine to be regurgitated now in our modern day. Case solved!

Largest feathered dinosaur discovered in China .............

Largest feathered dinosaur discovered in China - Yutyrannus huali or 'beautiful feathered tyrant'

By Dave Armstrong - 05 Apr 2012 15:03:00 GMT



                                                                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Yutyrannus huali is a newly-discovered early Cretaceous dinosaur from the rich Chinese fossil beds. He is the great granddaddy of Tyrannosaurus rex and could well have handled himself, don't you think?; Credit: Brian Choo

When the dinosaur groups first evolved feathers, we have seen many Chinese examples of small chicken-like reptiles from Cretaceous and Jurassic times. Now, like a rampant bus charging through the ancient records, we have a one and a half ton giant with stubbly feathers. No way could this beast flop through the air!He's a tyrannosauroid with one large and two small very complete fossils, again from Liaoning Province in China. The specimens are 125 million years old, almost twice the age of the Tyrannosaur dynasty. That means they are ancestral, basal tyrannosaurids! With three fingers on huge feet, the feathers are long and filamentous on its back.The name given is Yutysaurus huali, meaning he is a beautiful feathered tyrant. Xing Xu, Kebai Wang, Ke Zhang, Qingyu Ma, Lida Xing, Corwin Sullivan, Dongyu Hu, Shuqing Cheng & Shuo Wang decided to name him as such in the current publication of the journal Nature. They hail from Shenyang and Beijing Universities, University of Alberta and the Zhucheng Dinosaur Museum in Shandong.

The fossil beds in Liaoning are rich, with Beipiaosaurus the biggest feathered relative found so far. Yuty comes in at 40X the mass of that previous record-holder, becoming the largest feathered dinosaur species discovered to date.At the Institute of Vertebrate Palaeontology and Palaeoanthropology in Beijing, Xing Xu believes it is, "possible that feathers were much more widespread, at least among meat-eating dinosaurs, than most scientists would have guessed even a few years ago." Of course poor old Tyrannosaurus rex, 60 million years later, had lost his heirloom of feathers and he also had to make do with only two fingers.

The down-like feathers on these specimens would have been used for insulation, being densely-packed, but no notion of flying near-relatives is being entertained.

We have to remember that hair/fur hadn't yet been "invented" (ie. evolved by the later mammal-like reptiles), so the feather was one of the very few possibilities for keeping out the cold. Whether colour or decorative displays at mating time would involve the feathers is yet another flight of fancy we can all have a piece of this Easter.

The amazing ginger mammoth: Ice Age creature killed by cavemen is found perfectly preserved after 10,000 yearsPosted by truther on April 5, 2012


  • First-ever ‘ginger’ mammoth
  • Baby beast has wounds that could be from lions – or humans
  • Well-preserved carcass could be as old as 10,000 years
  • Find has ‘huge significance’ say scientists

Daily Mail

The shaggy ginger coat is just as bright as it was when the animal wandered over the ice-covered terrain.

Its eyes, foot pads and even internal organs are all intact. Yet this is a young woolly mammoth – which lived more than 10,000 years ago.

Its perfectly preserved body was discovered in the frozen ground of Siberia by tusk-hunters, who handed it over to scientists.



Red alert: Ginger Yuka is around 10,000 years old and is pictured here with some of the team that studied her



While many bones have been found before – so we have an idea of how the legendary creatures looked when they roamed the icy plains –  this is unique in being an almost entire frozen carcass.

Experts believe it could yield a treasure trove of information from the past, not only about these creatures, but the early humans who lived alongside them during the Ice Age.

The mammoth, which was three to four years old when it died, was found in the Ust-Yansky region of Yakutia, the remotest part of Siberia.

Most remarkable is the fact that it had two clean cuts on its back and several bones had been removed including its spine, skull, ribs and pelvis. The skull was found nearby.

A long straight cut stretches from its head to the centre of its back, as well as an ‘unusual patterned opening’ on the right flank made of small serrations as if from a primitive saw-like tool. This skilful butchery could not have been the work of a predator such as a lion, and was probably the work of cavemen eking out a living during the Ice Age.

Although mammoths featured in cave paintings from the time, this is the first evidence that humans preyed on them in the days when ice sheets covered 40 per cent of the northern hemisphere.


Mammoth discovery: Yuka is thought to be about two and a half years old



Yuka the baby mammoth is the first ‘strawberry blonde’ mammoth ever discovered
The find suggests humans may have contributed to their extinction, before the creatures were finally wiped out in the great thaw ten millennia ago.The 6ft-long mammoth, nicknamed Yuka, appears to have escaped another predator at an earlier stage as it had a broken leg and other injuries which suggest an epic struggle.
Daniel Fisher, professor of earth and environmental sciences at the University of Michigan and a world expert on mammoths, said: ‘There is dramatic evidence of a life-and-death struggle between Yuka and some top predator, probably a lion. Even more interesting, there are hints that humans may have taken over the kill at an early stage.


Hair we go: Woolly mammoths were similar in height to African elephants

Toe-tally amazing: Yuka has been preserved in spectacularly good condition


The discovery has been described as being of ‘huge’ significance – and could be the first direct evidence of early man having attacked mammoths

‘Were humans using the lions to catch mammoths and then moving the lions off their kill?’Mammoths evolved from African elephants when the Ice Age set in. They were around twice the size of today’s elephants, weighed up to eight tons, and their long tusks helped them fight predators and pick grass and shrubs out of the ice.
Scientists could dissect Yuka or use infrared scanning to look at its organs and understand how mammoths managed to adapt to the harsh conditions. Using the body tissue, which is normally lost, they can also use the latest technology to analyse its genome, raising the possibility of cloning a mammoth from the remains.


Prehistoric footprint: Its pads are in perfect condition


The remains were found by Siberian hunters and handed over to the Mammuthus science organisation


The discovery is shown as part of a BBC documentary, MammothBernard Buiges, of the organisation Mammathus, obtained the carcass, whose gender was not specified, from the Siberian tusk hunters. He is confident that they were not responsible for removing the bones and that it was the work of Man. The incredible find was shown last night on the BBC2 programme Woolly Mammoth: Secrets from the Ice.
The presenter, anatomist and broadcaster Professor Alice Roberts, of Birmingham University, said it was like a ‘time machine into the past’ , adding: ‘It just doesn’t look like an animal which died 10,000 years ago. It looks so fresh, almost alive. It’s a historic moment.’Professor Adrian Lister of the Natural History Museum said:  ‘This looks like one of the most complete mammoth carcasses we’ve ever found.
‘The vast majority of fossils are just bones and teeth because that’s what survives under the ground. So to find a complete carcass with all its flesh and skin and hair like this, it can only happen in the very far north of Siberia.’
