Bakker can draw very well and is a good artist. I'd never say he wasn't a
paleo. He has a degree and active research.

Not at all. I didn't say anything at all about Greg's art not being
vailid. Many however thinks he takes leaps with data. He isn't a
paleontologist, I'm sorry. I don't think him lumping species around and
pushing it as a scientific norm is his right when he isn't in a position
to do so.
