Mass Extinction of Dinosaurs in Wales

Was watching an item on Noah last night on the local network. I think I've sussed what happened to the dinosaurs; if there were only two of each animal, eating just one of them would ensure its extinction, and Noah and his large family had to eat something. Obviously the dinosaurs were dinner.

The fault with this premis is that the actual numbers quoted were; "Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female," unless the dinosaurs were unclean.

Talking of faulty logic, I hear the Welsh Health Minister wants e-cigarettes banned in public enclosed spaces using the premise that they normalise smoking. No, they normalise vaping, which is not the same as smoking. Using that logic, drinking water should be banned in public places as it normalises the drinking of vodka. Faulty logic is being used to justify a moral judgment by trying to convert it into a quasi-scientific argument.

The Welsh Health Minister also states that e-cigarettes are targeted at the young. I believe that to be false, as the grater sales and profits are to be made from the vast number of existing smokers, who are generally old dinosaurs like me (we actually survived The Flood).
