I’m Crushed

No feathery duckosaurs? Say it ain’t so, Feduccia et al., say it ain’t so!

I’m not equipped to deal with the study of stuff that’s alive… perhaps we can get ace public biologist PZ Myers on the case.

    feduccia et al are grasping at straws – the arguments in this paper are…not very good.
    among people who *haven’t* built their careers on being confrontationally wrongheaded, the consensus remains – birds are dinosaurs, and dinosaurs had feathers.
    so be consoled – you can still blow the minds of little kids by pointing to their parakeet and saying, “whoa! i didn’t know you had a pet dinosaur!”
