RE: Utility of Scavenger vs. Predator Argument
Ok, that's the "knowledge for the sake of knowledge" argument. I have
problem with that at all. I was hoping the discussion was being used to
illuminate some other aspect of the dinosaur question, though.

It means that science has found a solution: not to solve anything, but
to learn why, and to figure it out. We will never know the exact surety
of any of our theories, because there is no way to test them by
observing the dinosaurs themselves. At least not yet, and I say this as
postulating that _all_ things are possible, or at least plausible.
