Re: Feduccia's allegations

Of course, because he _knows_ Archie had feathers.
But let's suppose all _Archaeopteryx_ specimens had be found without
feathers imprints, I guess Feduccia wouldn't have noticed anything, and he'd
have let it be a dinosaur.

Of course, it's a null hypothesis... Just my 2 cents...
