I want to know why the state of Kansas prohibited dinosaur toys and books in 2005; is it because of religious or "moral" reasons. I enjoy dinosaur memorabilia ,since I was little, and do not agree with many of the theories of dinosaurs/evolution.

I've never heard of such a prohibition. Quite the opposite, Many rare and even world famous dinosaur fossils have been found in KS. Most of them aquatic, since KS was ocean then.

What are you talking about?

Please quote a source. If this is true (which it's not), then the Steinberg Museum in Hays is in big trouble.

It's Sternberg Museum in Hays. I don't know OP, are you talking about when the Dept of Education tried to put the kabash (sp... lol) on teaching evolution in public schools? I can't think of anything else even remotely similar to what you mentioned. Regardless, it didn't happen, and will not.

Oh for goodness sake, of course it is! I should try turning my brain on when I post occasionally.

I took the kids again for probably the 5th time, last weekend. They weren't afraid of the animatronic T-Rex this time. lol The museum is nothing like it used to be, though. We practically lived there as kids.

Ah young grasshopper, confucious say google is your friend.

P.S. Does the Chicago Natural History Museum still have that live T-rex that I think I heard about? How many cows a day does it eat?
