If one defers from ridiculing perfection, one makes the tacit statement that one is less than said ideal.

IOW, you seemed to be gettin a mite high-falutin,' even uppity, in yer comment.

No blog necessary, BTW.  Well, okay, maybe just some pics.

Couldst thou but witness the effusive mirth emanating from my humble countenance. Your wry wit doth always bring joy to the cockles of my heart.

Out of respect for the sensibilities of the public, pictorial documentation will advisedly be deferred.

We now return to the regularly scheduled dialectic.

  Cut it out Harte. Swede is a scientist .  His "deft use of the language"   is to be expected and appreciated , not ridiculed.   His linguistic  communicative propensities were displayed from birth, upon which when the Dr. announced,  "  It's a boy!  "  Swede interjected....   ahem!,  infantile male H. sapiens sapiens.

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

Re: Bolded #1 - But that is the point. Numerous representatives of pre-H.s.s. lineages have been recovered and analyzed. Extensively.

Re: Bolded #2 - You have "read a lot about the general commentaries on so called hominid fossils"? In what references? Have you actually studied the technical reports? Do you have any formal training/experience in faunal analysis that would allow you to provide credible interpretation of an osteological recovery? Are you truly aware of all the subtleties of such aspects as bio-mechanics that are involved in such evaluations as locomotive capability/manner?

Extinct chimp fossils are erraneously heralded as hominid fossils.

Utter nonsense is erroneously heralded as facts.

The difference is that you are claiming, from a position of ignorance, that the opinions of all the trained experts in the world are false because you and a bunch of ideologically motivated lunatics on the internet say so.

"Erroneously" is erroneously spelled as "erraneously."

Yes. I not only believe such is possible, but that's how it was. All the stories and legends and such concerning dragons? That's what they were: dinosaurs.

Can you propose any way in which dinosaurs could have survived K-T and lived up to relatively modern days without leaving any physical trace behind and only to appear in works of fiction?

Does that mean that if I believe hard enough, God will send me a magic unicorn that S hits gold turds that I can melt down and sell as bullion?  I sure hope so, because I could use the money right now.

Believing something doesn't make it true.  Something ACTUALLY happening is the basis for truth.  When things ACTUALLY happen they leave behind this little thing called evidence.  There is no evidence that non-avian dinosauria survived the K-T event, making it EXTREMELY unlikely to have occurred.

While your main point here is correct, there IS evidence that some lines of dinosaurs lived up to 300,000 years after the K-T event. Still a long way from then til now. :tu:

You are correct.  I should have been more clear.  I meant survived into modern times. Thanks for the clarification.

Like ducks. I heard they are still around :)

But yeah, the survival of non-avian dinosaurs for a geologically short period of time is perfectly fine. It's not like they all dropped dead exactly 64 million years ago.
