Giant Camels Roamed the Arctic 3.5 Million Years Ago

Well, the Arctic wasn't always the arctic so I'm not surprised. Also, there used to be camels in the North America as well. Deer also used to be much larger.

The Irish Elk (Megaloceros giganteus) was the largest deer that ever lived that we know of. It stood 7 feet tall at the shoulders and its antlers could reach 12 feet from tip to tip. When our ancestors went deer hunting it wasn't no little Bamby, and they did it with wooden spears.

I wish we still lived in a time where everything was massive.....

Not only is our Technology getting smaller, but our wildlife is as well :(

Insects and carnivores were massive at a time as well. I'm perfectly fine with our wildlife. Waking up to a sabertooth or finding a dragon fly with a 3 foot wing span and a 6 foot milipede in my back yard would get my day off to a bad start. And can you imagine one of those big camels or deer crossing the road and you hitting it with your car?
 
Marvolo, you have to understand its not like one day the sharks turned into megladons, we'd have been living with these creatures for centuries. We would of easily adapted to the environment accordingly.

I wouldn't mind flying on the back of a Dragon Fly to work instead of my driving my Hyundai :D

Well we'd have bigger cars.
 
See Piper's got the idea. We'd evolve as a species ourselves to deal with the massive creatures in the world. Maybe "short" in that sense would be like 6' tall....or we'd just build awesome vehicles to get around in. Maybe everyone would have their own tanks just to get to work in the morning.
 
But don't forget that the earth is only less than 10,000 years old! There are creation museums to prove it!
 
The Grand Canyon proves that the great flood happened!!!!
 
The Grand Canyon thing sounds silly, yes, but let's be honest here... Giant ****ing Camels in the Arctic sounds pretty silly too.
 
Imagine if Mose's had to fit big mother fu&%$&(#&(#'s like this on his ark? probably would of sank

That was Noah! But yeah, that's probably why they're extinct now.

Elephants are alive because they're actually good swimmers.

Oh, I know we would have evolved to deal with them and wouldn't consider it odd. But as evolution shows you change one thing you risk the species hitting a dead end. There is also the possibility we might not have been able to climb to the top of our food chain. Farming is a major factor in mankind going from nomads to larger settled social structures which allowed us to spend less time gathering food and fighting off nature and more time learning. If we had to contend with giant carnivores there is a high chance we wouldn't have achieved what we have. Giant wildlife or not we are still primates and at the rate we evolved if giant carnivores had stuck around for another 10,000 years I'm not so confident we could have out evolved them fast enough to conquer them. And if we had out evolved them we would have just hunted them to extinction so there still wouldn't be hardly any large wildlife. There really isn't any other way this could have went. We are either on top or we aren't. I prefer to be on top.
 
I assume you mean Noah.

EDIT: Ninja'd by Evo.
 
Noah...sorry....jesus...I am trying to rattle off posts. I need to maybe just stop for a while. Im digging a hole thatll be hard to get out of
 
Jesus is so going send you to hell to burn for an infinite amount of time. But don't worry, he still loves you. Just watch out for the crocoduck!
 
At least I said Ark and not mini van or stage coach or something
 
Moses DID have an ark, but that was the ark of the covenant.
 
CHECKMATE, atheists!!

Banana's prove the existence of a higher power! I mean it fits the hand perfectly, it's easy to peel and it curves towards the face for easy entry! Clearly this was created specifically for man, we are after all, the center of creation.
