>>A little logical thinking will illuminate at least two gaping

>>1. Firstly regarding the supposed tie-in between Prof Russell's

>>such environment underground. A dinosaur that retreated
>>underground to live in tunnels and caves would almost certainly
>>not evolve to appear anything like a human. More likely it would
>>resemble a mole/snake/insect.

>>2. Regarding the sudden 'intrusion' of the 1945 atomic
>>explosions into the underground creatures' world. These tests
>>were above-ground. The only effect below ground would have been
>>the blast shockwave - no radiation fallout would have been
>>apparent. And the blast shockwave would pale into insignificance
>>in comparison to natural shockwave sources such as volcanic

Particularly religion and theology or intelligent design
