This article from the The Fox News web site was discussing the type of death that a certain kind of dinosaur had experienced. It seems to be a well accepted premise that they likely died in water.
"Some animals found in this posture may have suffocated in ash during a volcanic eruption, consistent with the fact that many fossils are found in ash deposits, Faux and Padian said.
But many other possibilities exist, including disease, brain trauma, severe bleeding, thiamine deficiency or poisoning."
Noah's flood of course cannot even be considered as a possibility.
"Padian acknowledged that many dinosaur fossils show signs that the animal died in water and the current tugged the body into an arched position, but currents cannot explain all the characteristics of an opisthotonic pose."
Acknowledging that many dinosaur fossils show signs that the animal died in water is an amazing acknowledgement. Is there evidence for Noah's flood? Of course there is! Can it be admitted by the secularist? Of course not!
And yes, the dinosaurs did, like all other air breathing creatures, die an agonizing death.
