Woman questions the existence of dinosaurs because 'their bones aren't everywhere'
| Last updated
A woman has questioned the existence of dinosaurs and posited a conspiracy theory about giant humanoids all in less than two minutes.
She uploaded a TikTok video where she asked why there aren't dinosaur bones everywhere on the planet and just in some specific locations.
The world is a pretty big place and we have been told that ancient species would roam all over.
And yet, there seems to be only a few big archeological sites dotted around the place where loads of fossils have been found.
The woman said: "Why is it that the average Joe has never dug them up?
"Like why haven't you or I or anyone we know ever found a bone?"
She claimed bones usually break down over a few years and asked why dinosaur remains are able to exist in the ground for tens of millions of years.
"I honestly believe they put these creatures in front of us and made us believe it because of this," she said while showing photos of very large humans or skeletons (some of which don't seem real).
Then she went on to talk about the Nephilim, aka 'mysterious beings or people in the Hebrew Bible who are described as being large and strong' or the 'fallen ones'.
The woman shared photos of ancient drawings of these supposed beings described throughout history.
She wondered how it was possible for anything to have survived a meteor hitting Earth like the one that killed the dinosaurs.
"There wouldn't be anything left, let alone bones," she said to the camera. "It's easy to connect the dots once your eyes are open."
Ah, if I had a dollar for every time a conspiracy theorist talked about opening your eyes I'd be a millionaire.
"It's just another thing made up to keep us from the truth," she says at the end. "Truth is, giants existed."
Well, we have an answer to at least one of her questions.
Yes, bones can decay over a few decades, however the reason why we have found so many dinosaur bones over the years is because they are fossils.
In the process of fossilisation, minerals replace the constituents of bones and turn them to stone.
As for the 'why aren't they everywhere question', Dr David Button, a dinosaur researcher at the Natural History Museum, explained: “Most of the dinosaur fossils we find are from animals that were living near to a lake or river.
“Some died shortly before the area flooded and covered their remains in mud and silt. Others were washed into a river by heavy rain.”
He added: “We don't know about many dinosaurs that lived in jungle or mountain environments. Fossils are very unlikely to form in such situations.”
So there you have it.
