Archaeoraptor Issues

June 7, 2008

Here’s a link to an article I found interesting. It’s on some of the controversy surrounding the Archaeoraptor, one of the fossils that was, at least at one point, believed to be evidence for dinosaur-to-bird evolution. The article is written by Dr Sarfati, who is a chemist and spectroscopist.

215. Saurolophus osborni

Pencil on paper, December 2007.
This sketch is inspired by images of the dinosaur species Saurolophus osborni.
Spend any amount of time with me and you’ll learn that I am absolutely fascinated with dinosaurs. I think they’re magnificent creatures and often wish that I could see them in the flesh. However, like so many extinct creatures, I guess it’s just a bit of wishful thinking. And Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park novels have made me wonder whether or not I really want to see dinosaurs!
Anyway, Saurolophus was a “duck billed” dinosaur, and a herbivore, known from fossil remains that show it had a rear-projecting spine from its skull.
