I think that most dinosaurs were cold blooded, but they had very nice flannel sweaters when it got chilly.

I also think that folks here should stay on topic and get away from bickering.

Thank You.

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

Seriously though, the technical definition of "dinosaur" -A fossil reptile of the Mesoziac era.
We know today that reptiles are cold-blooded, but do we categorize all animals of that era to be dinosaurs? That couldn't have been the case could it have?

Yelekiah said it was a joke and sarcasm right from the word go, so he was not being jazzy with words. He told you what he meant in the very beginning

No, Jazzy is talking down to someone as if they are below you (being a smart A). In the post in which he replyed to me, at the end, he gave a sence of me not knowing what sarcasm was and his next stated that I was confussed in someway so my dislikement came from that.

Lots of theories on this. what do you classify dinosaurs as?
edit:Given that there are so many nuances to language and I'm on a computer (and you don't know my tone of voice), you can't really conclude how I was being necessarily.

Well I think I would have to classify it as a reptile since that is the definition, so in that  
respect I would say cold-blooded based on our knowledge of reptiles.

Actually a smiley might make me look snarky after certain statements.
So what about smaller dinosaurs? what's the theory?

small "dinosaurs" by definition are reptile therefore being cold-blooded.

But how can they prove 100% that the fossils labeled "dinosaurs" are reptiles.

They found fossils of a dino heart so it made things more interesting.

The first page of this thread there is a link. Scientist found the heart fossil. Not a big reptile expert so I don't know how it varies from mammalian chambers.

Well if this is decided to be warm-blooded then the actual definition of dinosaur must be changed. I happen to think that there were all types back then, like now, both warm and cold-blooded, and even luke-warm. original.gif
