We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
You can't kid me, that photo is from Scrappleface. It surprises me that I haven't seen the similarity between a chicken and a t-rex before. Wait which is which? I can't tell if you cover thewriting below. Who are these scientists? Maybe they should stand back and rethink their reductionist ideas and look at the obvious picture. All living things have similar % of DNA. Its because we are Designed that way for survival. Have they found the strand that contains our souls yet. CS Lewis: " We are soul with bodies, not bodies with souls."
When we start out with preconceived notions (unscientific) that something had to evolve from something else then we will of course find what seems most likely to fit into that templet. I hate to be so retro but posibly all living things were created acoring to their own kind. So maybe dinosaurs were created as dinosaurs and birds as birds and so on. I'm no scientist, but I can observe as well as any one,and that chicken does not look like a t-rex.

NY Times headline: Scientists wrong, man didn't evolve from apes, Apes evolved from man. This story confirmed after interview with Bobo the gorrila when he related this story thru sign language to Al Gore. Details of this interview will be forthcoming.
Just imagine a forty-foot-tall chicken. Ya wouldn't last a minute. That dinnerplate-sized gimlet eye would spy you, and down would come that head as big as a truck, with a beak like two big wheelbarrows clapping together.
