   Alright, I WAS gonna just sit back and watch this thing play out, but this
is where I come in. It has been my experience in the realm of paleontology
that logic is never used. Something I hope to remedy if I get into the field
someday. There, I said it. There's my two cents.

 anyway, as we all know.  But what about

  It has been proven that in evolution and is visible in today's animals that
if one design works, it can be shared with other animals species, genuses,
families, whatever. It is my personal belief that dinosaurs were not birds,
it's just that the design worked, so they used it. 
  On another note, this kinda ruins some things if this proves what it seems
to (I am being generous with the "seems to" there, just to appease some
people.) then my idea for a graduate thesis paper (or whatever) has just been
flushed down the toilet. I now leave the floor open to flamings and chewings
