I worked for three years on some pretty darn concrete evidence of dinosaurs (take a look at MY dinosaur that I worked on! The dinky thing on the
floor is a full-sized mammoth. There's a T-rex standing next to her that's as tall as the roof in your room... but that's only belly high to the
giant I worked on.)
(Here's a non-YouTube video of the process, including comments by the paleontologists I work with: vimeo.com/53907709)
I've had my hands on a lot of material in the years I've worked there, from the famous "clumsy hadrosaur footprint cast" to T-Rex teeth and
pachyrhinosaurus cheek parts. I've watched the Smithsonian fossil preparators working on micro fossils and seen the sauropods and the back lab at
the New Mexico Museum of Natural History (among others.)
And I've worked on dinosaur digs and hauled crocs out of rock beds.
So... you haven't had this kind of experience, but -- trust me -- it's out there and it's actually available for the "average person with a little
time and no training" to go and experience.
Yet people take mainstream ideas of dinosaurs so literally like we no all about it.
No kidding. I see lots of people talk about it as though they know lots. After working on dinosaurs for over 5 years, I know how much I do NOT
know... and it's kind of sad and amusing to see people who have never even read anything more than the occasional website when they start spouting
off what they know about dinosaurs.
The human being did not belong to Earth, the human IS the alien.
Actually, if that was true, we would be genetically different from every other creature on earth instead of being very similar to other living
creatures on earth (and about 98.5% similar to great apes like the chimp.)
I have a belief that most dinosaurs were gentle and passive creatures; but the mainstream for SOME reason wants us to percieve beasts who ate
eachother.. this is so bias and bad imaging/profiling of a RACE (dino-race)that we know little about.
It's more exciting to show big nasty dinosaurs than the rest of them, yes. The ratio of meat eaters to herbivores and omnivores seems to be similar
to the proportions of meat eaters/herbivores/omnivores anywhere in the wild. The smallest dinosaurs (we have one in our museum) that we have
skeletons of are about the size of a chicken... and there were undoubtedly much smaller ones. The average dinosaur was not much bigger than a large
Makes you wonder if those dinos being whiped out was intentional, to make human seeding more secure on this planet?
Dinosaurs were in decline before the asteroid hit -- and it was a combination of asteroid and the Deccan Traps (supervolcano that erupted for millions
of years) that did them in. (note... this is actually something that paleontologists and geologists have believed for decades, but there wasn't
enough good evidence to actually say this with any degree of confidence... until recently:
