    Seems to be lots of evidence for cross species evolution, and that dinosaurs are all around us... in the air. Feathers were said to have evolved for mainly display at first, and then gradually could be used for extended leaping, gliding, then flight.

    Probobly nothing new to most of you, but it was fascinating to learn for me and im sure anyone else who doesnt know.

    Yeah, I remember hearing a while ago that the modern day bird is/or closly related to a dinosaur/prehistoric reptile creature.

    Im a little surprised at the reaction, I thought this was common knowledge by now. Something widely excepted by that scientific community.

    Edit: Im speaking of my ex-wife of course
