I say he sells it rather than just gives it away

Both Adam and Eve rode that Mastodon 6000 years ago, However, it's kinda' hard to believe that the Garden of Eden would be in Texas.

".. it's kinda' hard to believe that the Garden of Eden would be in Texas..."

Well, according to Romneys religion it was Jackson County

"..Brigham Young exclaimed: “It is a pleasant thing to think of and to know where the garden of Eden was . . . In Jackson County was the garden of Eden. Joseph has declared this, and I am as much bound to believe that as to believe that Joseph was a prophet of God” (Journal History of the Church, March 15, 1857, 1; Church Archives)..."

No, I'm not making this up.

hmm, is that EXACTLY what he said? Seems like it's open to a contrary interpretation, as in, I'm not bound to believe either.

Good for him. And it shows there are Texans who are not creationists.

What gives you that idea? I hate to fuel a fire but couldn't he be one of those people who thinks it's all part of God's plan?

You have a point -- perhaps he thought the tooth was only a few thousand years old.

Not a thing in the article implies he wasn't a creationist who believes it died in the flood.

That's possible. The tooth did manage to make it into the hands of legitimate scientists, but we don't know how it got there.

Lucky man and a smart and generous one too. He has the right attitude and wants to donate it to a museum or a college so that many others (especially students) may enjoy it too.
Bravo!

Maybe if he told the professionals where he got it, maybe they could find the rest of it and possibly expand out knowledge of the creatures.

Maybe he will -- in due time...

Would he not be just as generous if he sold the tooth and used the money to pay for his kids' college? Or kept it, invested it, and gave it away later? Or used it to start a business that benefitted people? Lucky, yes, I'll agree with! But if you say lucky, that also confers the right to do with it what he pleases. Let's not disempower ourselves and short-circuit our creativity by trying to adhere to stiff concepts about what being a "good person" is.

Dear DrMorgan,The tooth in the shape it is now (incomplete and eroded) is possibly worth $35 to $75 in a fossil show. Do you really think that with that his kid is going to have a big head start in today's college tuitions? Do you think that you can start a buisiness with such a ridiculous sum? Have you any idea what Mitt Romney (or Robme) would do with such a sum? He would probably laugh in your face if you told him that you wanted to invest it in one of his companies.
