      Dinosaurs were reasonably well characterized before Hollywood got ahold of them, and they were discovered in the first place by English, Christian, natural historians - you know, the kind of men who built White civilization.

      Meanwhile retarded Amerimutts reject this exhaustive, hard earned science (their own knowledge of which is limited to a few skimmed Wikipedia articles and dimly remembered childhood trips to museums). Why? Anything contrarian is "red-pilled", and gives them a sense of superiority which would otherwise be impossible to find in their worthless, garden gnomed existence.

          You unironically can't figure out what something looked like just from its skeleton. If you applied the same manner of educated guessing they used for dinosaurs to this fucking thing, you'd get a retarded-looking, big-tittied alligator, not an orca. You probably wouldn't even know that it had a fucking dorsal fin, unless there's some kind of weird structure in the spine for it.

          Muscle insertion scars, comparison to extant species, soft tissue traces in lagerstatte. You have an incredibly superficial level of knowledge and think you're smarter than the thousands of white scientists and engineers who built the world around you.

        Does anyone else believe that schizophrenics like and their idiotic "conspiracies" are tacitly promoted by glowies in order to discredit genuine concerns about cover-ups? Both this and flat earth garbage for example are based on the idea that someone would waste tens, if not hundreds of millions of dollars in order to hide and obfuscate the truth about something that is so utterly irrelevant to the average person's life and that isn't even tangentially related to politics. If such ideas exist and are the first thing that come to mind when the average person thinks of "conspiracy", then it works perfectly as a way of discrediting anything that implies the government/international elites have been hiding things from the general populace.

          Yes, absolutely for flat earth, moon landings faked - especially in the latter case, as in addition to "poisoning the well" it acts as demoralization propaganda among those who believe it.

          However, this kind of bullshit is probably too obscure for the glowies to be pushing, so it's likely just schizo boomers who seethe at any reconstruction of a dinosaur that doesn't look like their Jurassic Park collectables.

      you'll be happy to hear no evidence for t-rex feathers has ever been found, no fossils, no quill knobs, literally nothing.
      meanwhile we have impressions from multiple parts of the t-rex body that show bumpy mosaic scales, including from the tail, parts of the face, the neck, the legs...

      paleo artist lately leave these parts bare and give them a weird feather cape, cause we have no impressions from the back yet so that must conveniently be the only place they had feathers, even though it makes 0 sense

      at most, t-rex may have had some protofeather fuzz in a few places, like the whispey hairs elephants have.

      Because paleoartists have to find it interesting or monetarily viable first. Just like people complaining about elaborately feathered and crested dinos, that level of speculation is only done because the people drawing it wanted it to be that way. It's a filter.

    Seems like they want to portray dinosaurs as lame and uninteresting as possible, they all have lips and feathers for some reason. Most theropods didn't had any feathers and the lips "theory" is bullshit, does crocodiles have lips? No. So why would dinosaurs have them?

      >lame and uninteresting
      ?
      It's just different from earlier interpretations, that's literally it. I think the feathers on massive animals for which there's only evidence to the contrary is BS personally, but lips seems fairly likely when you compare them to lizards, which are their closest extant relatives that still have the combination of teeth/no beak/primarily land animal, and the practical value of lips in those circumstances.

      • 2 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Lips hide the teeths and feathers make them looks like "le funny oversized dangerous chicken", the only theropods with feathers are dromaeosaurids but most modern paleoartists wants to add them everywhere for the sake of novelty and to be noticed as an artist.

          But hiding the teef is pretty much the standard thing among land animals anon, think of it more like a monitor lizard. They manage to look plenty dangerous and predatory.
          That said, I agree that some are way too liberal with the feathers. Applying them to animals from the Triassic and even early Jurassic seems a stretch, and I can't imagine a creature larger than an elephant having much use for them at all.
          As for:
          >le funny oversized chicken
          It's going to look far more like a deadly, terrifying ground-based eagle with a snarling maw than any sort of poultry, except maybe the already-cute smaller animals. See pic related, like that wouldn't put a tiger or a grizzly to shame for a pant-shitting, even if it was behind plexiglass at some zoo somewhere.

            Sea snakes are fully aquatic and can barely move on land. Also, there have been several terrestrial crocodiles in the past and some modern ones can spend a lot of time out of the water.
