Paleontology is a Scam, According to Cam'ron!
RIP to the dinosaurs, but humans are different. They may have been blessed with an early exit from this hellish plane of existence, but we’re still kicking, hanging their corpses in museums and gluing them back together so that some dude can remake Jurassic Park for the millionth time. But just because we can’t perceive them without the vastly complication science of Paleontology or 3D imaging technology, doesn’t mean dinosaurs never existed. I believe the phenomenon is known as “object permanence”—or, the understanding that physical objects don’t need human eyeballs on them to inhabit the material plane. Someone should sit Killa Cam down and explain this to him!
Page Six reports that on Thursday’s episode of podcast ItsTheReal, Cam’ron bravely explained to hosts Eric and Jeff Rosenthal: “I have fights with people about dinosaurs.” He went on to explain that the entire science of paleontology “sounds like a money maker,” questioning how some bones that have sat in the earth for millions and millions of years could be re-assembled by modern scientists. “They throw these big bones, pause, up in a museum, and then be like, ‘Yo, these are the people that were here before us …’ I mean, pardon me or whatever.”

“No, no see that is the proof,” Eric hilariously said in response to Cam’ron’s statement.
In response, Cam’ron questioned whether dinosaur bones were strong enough to be displayed in museums and “not crumble.”
“I’m not necessarily going for that,” he said. “If we get more proof on it, cool. I’m not going off museum facts. I been to every museum when I was young. I’m like, word? So they found all these bones and glued them together? Nah. I’m not sure I’m gonna go for that one. It sounds like more of a moneymaker to me.”
The hosts, still in shock from these surprising opinions also took the time to see whether he believes the Earth is flat or round. He did clarify that he does side with the majority of people who know our planet is round, but went back to further explain his statement on dinosaurs by emphasizing that he’s not depending on “museum facts” or “finding bones” to determine whether they actually existed.
“Like, we need a little more proof and I don’t know whatever proof you could give me,” Cam’ron said. “But who found these bones? . . . I wish I could be an archaeologist and be like ‘I found some shit!’ I’ll be at the beach every day and be like ‘Yo, look what I discovered!’ and just make some shit up.”
