If you look up any museum they are displaying a "replica" of the fossils, and despite claims to the contrary, the more consistent claim is that dinosaurs are /at best/ just bad science or an invention of the mind.
>dig up big bones of larger animals from the past
>it's actually like 40 different skeletons all mish-mashed together
Now, I wasn't really considering this seriously at all, but then came across that "fossil fuels" is also basically a complete misnomer and oil comes instead from algae and bacteria.
Really I think that they got the science wrong on this bullshit and then just didn't give a fuck because it was making money.
