Quote:Scientists discover fossil of dinosaur ancestor with surprising croc-like appearance

Quote:The discovery of Teleocrater rhadinus, however, has forced scientists to reassess their ideas. Based on a fossil unearthed in southern Tanzania, these early relatives were carnivorous animals that measured approximately 7-10 feet long, with long necks and tails. Rather than walking on two legs, they walked on four crocodilian-like legs.
The finding, published today in the journal Nature, fills a gap in the fossil record.
“The research sheds light on the distribution and diversity of the ancestors of crocodiles, birds, and dinosaurs,” said Judy Skog, a program director in the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Division of Earth Sciences, which funded the research. “It indicates that dinosaur origins should be re-examined now that we know more about the complex history and traits of these early ancestors.”
T. rhadinus predated dinosaurs, living more than 245 million years ago during the Triassic Period. It shows up in the fossil record right after a large group of reptiles known as archosaurs split into a bird branch (leading to dinosaurs and eventually birds) and a crocodile branch (leading to alligators and crocodiles). T. rhadinus and its kin are the earliest known members of the bird branch of the archosaurs.

Who needs the fucking bible when we have science?

The insecure.
God(s) and religions are man made and the bane of humanity. 

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. Ozzy or Twain/take your pick

RE: Fuck Ken Ham and the Rest of The Creatards
I'm not a biologist, but what little reading I have done in that area says that Crocodilians predate dinosaurs by some large number of years. Isn't that so? I have a wicked cold (and listening to Black Sabbath), so I don't feel like scavenging the intertubes for factuality.

No. True crocodilians first appeared very late into the era of dinosaurs. But many ancestors of crocodilians looked pretty crocodile like, and the last common ancestor of dinosaurs and crocodiles lived not long before when the first dinosaur appeared.

Oh, OK. I'm going to bed, now. That nap I had after drinking a cup of coffee right before it (which, under normal circumstances would have kept me alert for hours) didn't help my cognitive skills one bit. We'll see how long this cold lasts. My wife is taking antibiotics and got an inhaler for the symptoms. Me, I'm gargling peroxide and salt water. I loathe taking antibiotics, just to make sure that when the weird shit get to me, I'll have a chance to survive, based on my personal immunity. I kay not be making much sense here; I've been awake since Oh-dark-thirty, and I'm sick. 'night.

Imagine how many school lunches Ken's disaster of sinking ship  could have bought? Darwin kicked their crap to the curb long ago, Scopes Monkey trial, DNA....... 

This is just more nails in the already buried coffin of creationism.

If creationists applied one-tenth of the skepticism they apply to the theory of evolution to their scriptures, they'd all be atheists.
I'm not anti-Christian. I'm anti-stupid.
