The new Ice Age movie — Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs — is set to open next summer.
What problems do you see with the following poster (and the premise of the movie in general)?
Scientists are going to have a field day with it.
Apparently, dinosaurs are taking over the earth after the Ice Age… Evolution is going backwards, too. Dinosaurs are taking over the saber-toothed tigers and mammoths even though dinosaurs went extinct millions of years before those other animals existed.
Next thing you know, the animals in the movie are going to be talking, too.
Jay is shocked by this:
It’s not like these two types of animals were thousands of years apart… but MILLIONS! Millions and millions and millions of years. 65.5 MILLION! Worst of all, I have been looking online and very few people seem to have picked up on this HUGE mistake. What the fuck.
Of course, no one is looking to
Disney Blue Sky Studios for real science education. I hope this movies provides an opportunity for scientists to educate children about what we know about our planet’s history and what’s fictional.
