the fossil record speaks for itself. i'm consistently confused by the die-hard so-called scientists who refuse to open their minds to the possibility that dinosaurs gave rise to birds, and so, did not completely die out; rather they live on, in an evolved state, mind you, as birds. there is far more evidence than that cited in the article: dr. robert bakker's incredible book on the very subject pretty concisely sums it up in lay terms. this newest feathewred discovery is just the final nail in the slow-witted, cold-blooded, lumbering behemoth myth's coffin.
these guys who keep propounding that dinosaurs were stupid and fat (a theory, let's remember that hasn't actually been around too very long), remind me of the very earnest, but not very resourseful lot who continue to scream that shakespeare wasn't shakespeare. again, the evidence against this theory is severe, and the evidence for it relies on, well, a whole lot of conjecture.
anyway... that's what i'm thinking about right now.
