My mistake , it is a lets agree with "Keyser" thread, not let's discuss the fiction expressed as fact.

The internet is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, we can access zettabytes of information - everything from history, to Science, to literature, to moonshine recipes and cats memes.

On the other, it has the contributions of users that are as thick as pig shit.

I have to agree with Ambient here I'm afraid.

I have a local museum and some of the artifacts on display aren't described correctly.

I went to a museum in York 30 years ago and saw remains which were described as being 3.4 million years old, when I went recently the notice hadn't been updated and still said 3.4 million years. :brickwall:

So when I see pictures of dinosaurs I go yeah right, that's what they looked like. :doomed:

Yes I agree - because the world's leading archaeologists and palaeontologists are not as reliable as some random bloke ranting in the pub. :thumbsup:

I know this isn't archaeology but to age that 400 year old shark the way they do it is to grind up the eyeball.
