I never said that. I used the development of a metabolism different than
one's ancestors within the origin of birds as a corrollary to the
potential development of non-temp-dependant sex-selection during avian
evolution. No dino need neccessarily be temp-dependant, but they may have
been otherwise. I never said birds were or were not early on, and used the
histology as an example of something similar, not _related_ per se, or I
would have said so. So I simply used "corrollary" to explain this.

Little steps are often the hardest to take. We are too used to making leaps
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do. We should all
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
