New Dinosaur Species Is a Missing Link 194

Posted by samzenpus

An anonymous reader writes "A new dinosaur provides a link between what paleontologists consider 'early' and 'later' dinosaurs. There's a gap in the fossil record between the oldest known dinosaurs, which walked or ran on their hind legs about 230 million years ago in Argentina and Brazil, and other predatory dinosaurs that lived much later. Daemonosaurus chauliodus helps fill in a blank in dinosaur history."

    How many kids do you have, and how many school districts are they attending, exactly? Aside from your entire argument, that was a great argument.

    As a parent of two kids in public school in Kansas [wikipedia.org], yes, I am concerned. I could also point you to several other states, Tennessee being the most recent that I know of, who are attempting to pass laws to let Creationism in through the backdoor. The Creationist movement is quite active, and if we don't stand up to these idiots, they will happily eviscerate public school science education.

The trouble with being punctual is that people think you have nothing more important to do.
