snakes[edit]

no-one is suggesting that dinosaurs evolved from snakes.--Thedoctor80 (talk) 16:27, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Oh No![edit]

To most fundamentalist Christians, this poor, extinct creature is just as bad as we liberals. Why? Because it is a bird, with scales, and this makes evolution look slightly credible! In conclusion, this bird was definitely an evil socialist. Probably supported tolerance, diversity, and all of the liberal propaganda!--Lefty (talk) 23:38, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Adding new evidence for Dinosauria having feathers - even MORE evidence against the argument that the Archaeopteryx was already a bird...[edit]

To anyone of consequence -

Is there anyone out there who may be able to provide a accurate synopsis/overview of the current evidence supporting feathered Dinosaurs?

And before anyone "Why don't you do it yourself"'s me, I am just an electrical engineer with no special skills in describing biology. I mean a true professional - someone who could make this a 100% valid article with accurate sourcing (to BOOKS as well as weblinks). — Unsigned, by: Tbird83ii / talk / contribs

Technically birds are dinosaurs, the line between them is so blurred its basically a door. Sandflapjack (talk) 21:00, 16 April 2016 (UTC)

By definition[edit]

... the term 'intermediate species' can only be applied after the event. Ditto 'extinct species.' 82.44.143.26 (talk) 16:54, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
