Re: HOW DINOSAURS CHEWED...
A novel analysis of microscopic scratches on fossilized teeth reveals how
plant-eating duck-billed dinosaurs used a now-extinct type of jaw to chew
their food. The study also suggests duckbills were more likely to graze on
low-lying greenery than to chomp on tree leaves like giraffes (or like the
dinosaurs in "Jurassic Park").....
The problem is that this study bolsters pleurokinesis, while the famous
paper in the JVP of December says pleurokinesis was completely impossible
outside the minds of people who started their careers by studying squamate
anatomy and consequently tried to see kinesis, any kinesis, in every skull
they looked at. I declare the next round open!
