This is all the more reason to fill the time discussing and disseminating
opinions and information. I for one am enjoying all the discussion and
even having to eat my words every now and then. 
If we aren't going to challenge our current thinking and test our pet
theories against those of others, then we might as well all just agree
that dinosaurs were all slow, stupid, cold-blooded, oversized beasts that
couldn't lift their bellies off the ground and had to stand in water to
support their bulk.
If you can't contribute constructively to the debate then I suggest you
stay out of it!
