[Yes, it's him again ... you'll all LOVE this one ... and yes, the other forum posters have invited him to put this and other whacked-out suggestions in the same thread to empirical test ;-) ]
Theropod and gang.
your just wrong again about these things.
Animals are all afraid of man in the wilderness. It is not from personal contact. I suggest it needs to be provoked by something like confidence or some impression or something But not defeat by violence. They don't internalize genetically incidents. I repeat excellent nature shows and zillions of acounts of man and beast in Canada all show that all creatures flee the appearance of man. Even bells or waving arms keeps bears away. They flee nothing else but a human noise will save hikers.
This is a well known fact and usually the case is made that animals learned to fear man and it somehow sticks like the way they fear poisoness coloured snakes etc.
Polar bears are not shot away but are scared away by flares, or druming garbage cans up there. They simply get used to people like any animal but a little agression sends them flying. They would never fly from a animals.
Polar bears are scared to the point of white hair.
The author of Genesis knew his audience , which lived with lions and bears, would know a child could scare them off.
you guys are not analysising properly common data.

I saw a polar bear one time - it scared me so bad fuckin' Santa Claus got white hair out of the deal.
Hey, is this the guy that went into the lion's cage at the zoo about 6 months ago, preaching Jesus, and the lion must have thought he was saying grace, because it ate him?
Then why not? C'mon, Bobby, give 'er the ol' college try, whyncha? I bet you'll make a shitload of human noise.

Are you real?

"Polar bears are scared to the point of white hair."
I hope that's a joke, if not then - POLAR BEARS DO NOT HAVE WHITE FUR! So I can already see you are less than an expert in the field of zoology.
Also, polar bears are one of the few animals in the world that are known to deliberately and actively hunt humans.
If you're so sure that all animals are so scared of humans then you won't mind getting into a cage with a hungry, 800lb tiger now will ya?
Here's some examples of animals being afraid of humans:
I tried to find the video of the documentary film maker being eaten by a pide of lions in the 70's, but I can't find it. Sorry.

Did he just say that polar bears were white because they have been frightened badly??!! *sputter*
9/2/2008 3:11:09 AM
I want to put you in the same room with a big angry bear.

Poisoness -- a female poisoner?
Please invite all your friends to a personal demonstration of how scared polar bears can be.

Is he using a bad translation program to translate his comments to English from some other language?
Or is he just crazy?
9/2/2008 3:22:59 AM
What? Are you saying God told the animals to run from humans...or something...
What is this...person saying? The Dragon does not understand.

Stop using altavista babelfish to construct your english.
You know who else lived with bears? Grizzly Man
and they ate him.
You Fail. Try again.

Robert Byers is unique as creationists go. He just plods along making his outrageous statements about the natural world, blissfully ignoring all evidence to the contrary. He's polite, tries desperately to rebut some arguments, and is so ignorant of nature that I wonder if he's ever left downtown Toronto in his entire life. He's a prime candidate for being eaten by something large and bitey if he ever walked out into the woods.

Please, please visit the far north of Australia and go for a little paddle in some of the creeks and waterholes. I want to see all of those Saltwater Crocodiles flee in terror from you. No, I really do.

@ South-african I did not think there was anyone else here from the R.S.A

Polar bears don't have white hair, they have got translucent hair. The rest of the post is equally bullcrap.
9/2/2008 7:22:15 AM
I just love it when people who have never left a city know all about living in the wilderness and wildlife.
9/2/2008 7:23:15 AM
preparing for the Darwin award this one is,
breathing and thinking at the same time he can't....
I'd be worried about feral bunnies as well, and rats...

It's in the Bible. The kids mocking Elisha's baldness scared off the bears.
9/2/2008 9:32:24 AM
Mr great white shark would like a quiet word with you (and a slight nibble)...
Oh, not an animal you say?
Well then, try scaring off a lioness with cubs, a tigress, or, you know, any of the great cats.
Or just, try watching a couple of documentaries, pop open a book on biology and nature in general - and just get a clue will you?
Oh, and on a different note; when I was in Thailand for vacation this summer we went to see a snake show. The show was unfortunately cancelled because their king cobra had attacked and bitten a german tourist. Apparently the snake didn't fear the gerry. We still got a tour of the snake farm though.

Yeah, animals are just big bullys. One swift kick in the nuts and they'll drop just like anyone else.

Ever seen a lion?

Go and scare a polar bear. Or a grizzly. Or a Bengal tiger. Or a crocodile. Or a Great White Shark.
