***** isn't it more likely that YOU're making the (un)common mistake of
thinking that he's not thought about it and has already assumed that the two
things are not the same??  mh...

Well, have you read the paper? I have now and he doesn't have the femur
moving past horizontal.

**** so YOU are the  authority on dinos??<<

Actually YES! Go to my web site http://www.dinohunter.info and check my
resumae. I've done a lot of work on dinosaurs, articles, art work etc. I
write a bimonthly article for Prehistoric Times on How to Draw Dinosaurs and
I use their anatomy. I've been doing this for at least 5 years, so yea I am
an AUTHORITY on dinosaurs.

*** I think you'd better read the paper _before_ questioning its contents;
your asumptions are kinda naive, since you're saying that a scientist has
just (in your opinion) overlooked some basilar notions about differences in
hindlimb posture and movements between chick,crocs and dinos: nobody asks
you to take the author's words without arguing against them...just read
those words before questioning them,ok?<<
Read it and guess what I was right!
