According to mainstream science, dinosaur populations were wiped out eons ago. Or were they?

Komodo Dragons are large varanid lizards live in a restricted area of the East Indies (Indonesia) are 80-feet wide and have dinosaur like bodies reminiscent of their ancestors once were 80-feet tall thrived around the world 40 to 80 million years ago, the Komodo Dragon species survived the mass extinction event claimed the lives of larger more ferocious species of dinosaur reptiles.

I'm going to ask a question here: If dinosaurs are still living today, why haven't any dinosaur fossils been found after 65 million years ago?

Because that is when dinosaurs became extinct. Komodo Dragons are not dinosaurs. In the same way that crocodiles are not dinosaurs. They are reptiles. Reptiles are not dinosaurs!
Of course, I stand to be corrected on this one :)

I think Quake Storm Maverick made a slight error (by mistake I am sure) because Komodo Dragons are certainly not 80ft wide. :)

Exactly! That is why I can't believe some people actually think that non-avian dinosaurs are still around. The only real dinosaurs still around are birds. Just because a lizard looks like a dinosaur doesn't mean it is one or is evidence that there are living dinosaurs.

Komodo dragons and monitor lizards in general are closely related to the extinct mosasaurs.

But mosasaurs were not dinosaurs either.

Sorry for posting this guys. This is the latest CGI dinosaur 'footage'. Does look pretty convincing though.

If I had the skills and the software, I could make such a video, using that scene from Jurassic Park:

Haha, a lot of people would probably believe it too. Judging by the youtube comments on the video I posted, a lot of people think it's real.

Like I said, I don't have the software, but the next is a screenshot, cropped it, converted it to greyscale, and then mirrored it:

I'd say: 100% FAKE.

Even the tree on the left and the ones on the horizon are the same, lol.

Yes definitely fake. A lot of gullible people out there though.
