Re: Protoavis

I have to disagree. For one thing, this is a forum for discussion of
these theories. If we aren't willing to back up our opinions or facts
with the evidence that brought us to them, then others can't adequately
evaluate (or challenge) them. I also contend that science demands that we
constantly re-evaluate old evidence to prevent us from perpetuating
mistakes and misinterpretation. 
Just where would we be without "the Dinosaur Herresies"?
