"In the end theologians are jealous of science, for they are aware that it has greater authority than do their own ways of finding “truth”: dogma, authority, and revelation. Science does find truth, faith does not. " - Jerry Coyne

Definitely some kind of Mammoth though.


Size? There is not a scale in that image, thus I can see how one might be thrown off a bit, but that specimen is 3.8 meters at the shoulder.

I was trying to compare it to the door to its right. Somewhere along the way, I had a brainfart and thought it was the same height when actually it's twice the size. No idea what brought that on. The odd bit is, I had M. Comlumbi written down and then thought... nah, too big.
