THE LOST WORLD OF GIANTS
INTRODUCTION COMPILED BY JONATHAN GRAY (?)
“Bones of an alligator which was as long as a house and as tall as its ceilings have been found on the banks of the Amazon River in South America. Scientists estimate from the alligator’s 1.5 metre skull that it was about 2.5 metres tall, and about 12 metres long. Professor Carl Frailey, from Overland Park, Kansas, said the creature probably weighed about 120 tonnes. ‘This would make it heavier than Tyrannosaurus rex… the mightiest of dinosaur predators’, he said.” (The Sunday Mail, Brisbane, November 17, 1991)
Can you imagine it? Perhaps at this moment you are seated in a room that has a 2.5 meter (8 foot) ceiling. So now, fill up the room with the alligator’s head and upper body, then walk out and back through the whole house. That’s all alligator.
Essentially, everything in the fossil record was larger in the past than it is today. The environmental conditions of that early world would exercise the full genetic viability of all life forms. There is evidence that the earth supported plant and animal life of fantastic size and numbers.
