Dinosaur Study Backs Controversial Find

By Robert F. Service
ScienceNOW Daily News
31 July 2009

When scientists reported 2 years ago that they had discovered intact protein fragments from a 68-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex, the skeptics pounced. They argued that one of the main lines of evidence, signatures of the protein fragments taken by mass spectrometry, was flawed. But now a reanalysis of that mass-spec data from an independent group of researchers backs up the original claim that dinosaur proteins have indeed survived the assault of time.

Suprise - I just looked out the window and saw a couple of dozen of their descendants walking around and making a racket. They are called Canada Geese.

Wow, I thought "Piltdown Chicken" was laid to rest a long time ago.



It's almost as bad as the fable or fairytale of whales evolving from foxes. I thought it was the creationists had the award for the mythological.

Nope, I was wrong. They seem to have evolved from that now extinct Australian - "Thylacine".

Just like that! All laid out for any skeptic to see!

I'm looking forward to seeing the genome mapping results of this suggested lineage. When that one's done, it'll be a cinched down deal.

Regards!

And then there was the recent discovery of a small tree-climbing mammal that predates the dinosaurs by 30 million years.

Mammals’ ancestors indeed shared the planet with dinosaurs for their entire domination. When the dinosaurian megafauna were devastated 65 million years ago both proto mammals and a branch of dinosauria survived. Eventually mammals became dominant and the dinosaur descendants branched out into the birds.

Thus a descendant of the proto mammals looked out the window and observed the descendants of the dinosaurs walking around on the lawn. Ain’t nature wonderful?

Here the way the way to deliver it to a T-Rex:

No way ???

That looks more like one of Wilhelm Reich's science outside the box "Orgone Cloudbusters"!!!

Take a look:

http://www.dnamagazine.it/pics/cloudbuster.JPG (broken link)http://www.orgone.org/catalog/x7c-cbust1.jpg (broken link)

Now here's a replica constructed and used by Dr James DeMeo phd who researches Reich's life work.



Now here's the homemade device made by amateurs of Cloudbusting. See the identical design of Mr-T's device ??? How spooky is that ??? Actually I would have alluded to this info as the original research has these machines grounded to informational water by means of a well, but I've not done much study until recently about the theories.

That was funny. Good post! But alas, poor T-Rex and the other dinos are no more. But it's not all that sad. We can still see their remains.
