i vote the rock(et) scientists of america, or the world, study Ed's
bones with all the fervor of The Shroud of Turin!

What is the problem here folks ? what difference does it make where Ed
Conrad went to school??? The man has obviously found something worthy of

Here you have something tangible, something you can see, touch, examine,
experiment on...

what does the scientific community want, more UFO's ????????

personally i don't know anything about bones, Ed Conrad doesn't need to
know anything about bones, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to walk
along the beach and discover a piece of the space shuttle!

i just popped into this group yesterday cause i like to read about
interesting discoveries.

I'm finding the Ed Conrad vs. the scientific community threads more
amazing than the discoveries themselves.

Is this what it is like to be an archaeologists ?

I feel like a kid again

a gradeschool kid, LOL!

personally Mr Conrad, i am not thrilled to learn that we have actually
been screwing each other like this for 280 MILLION YEARS!!!!!


280 million huh

man that is a long time

well it shouldn't be too much longer, being a computer programmer by
trade, i can tell you that it takes FOUR DIGITS to represent TWO

amazingly many of TODAY'S programmers find this a difficult concept...

ie. we've ALWAYS done it this way...HaHaHa!!!!

bunch of dumb monkeys! lol

Hat's off to Mr Conrad, right or wrong!
