Expanding Our Horizons Of Knowledge

Czhuc raised an interesting point in a comment to yesterday's post about creationism and evolution:
'And what about hobbits and elves? Did they dwell the earth before or after the dinosaurs?'
A very good question, and one that exposes a serious flaw in the theory of evolution. However, a careful reading of the works of Tolkien, as well as other respected scholarly sources (the Shrek movies) has enabled me to fill in some of the gaps.

Hobbits and elves--as well as dwarves and fairies--were contemporary to the time of dinosaurs. In fact, Elves were the first to tame flying dragons, which were a genetic cousin of dinosaurs. Then when Adam and Eve appeared in the Garden of Eden, they used the techniques first pioneered by Elves to domesticate other land-based dinosaurs. The Tyrannosaurus Rex, with its powerful hind legs, proved to be quite adept at pulling a plow. Later, it was a dispute over the ownership of a Brachiosaurus that led to the fatal fight between Caine and Abel.
