Default Dinosaurs?

Was anyone ever in the dinosaurs? From about 5 years old to 10, I was a dino freak. I knew damn near everything about them, had little dinosaur toys and what not. I used to think they were so cool. I was watching discovery channel and realizied why I liked them so much.


Also, what do y'all think of dinosaurs. I know some people don't believe they existed? Well thise big ass fossils belonged to something?

Describes me exactly. I just had tons of dinosaurs books though. Activity ones and other good info+pics books. I once forgot to return one to the school library and they forgot about it as well, SUCKERS!

Dino Riders are also an awesome show back then. A staple of my Saturday morning.

I wasn't a dino freak as a kid, but right now it seems pretty interesting. Any 3D animated Discovery channel documentary, I'm there.

I too was a dino freak hehehe also had alot of the dino riders toys which were cool as they were almost scale models. I would even be a speaker at school exhibits and bring them as demo material for other kids.

There are some theories that propose T-Rex (I think) and other carnivores actually had feathers. It's hard to imagine dinosaurs any other way than what they were in Jurassic Park.

I read something about this when I went to a Dinosaur discovery center kind of thing. Pretty interesting stuff, but, like you said, it's pretty hard to imagine after seeing Jurassic Park.

I also watched somewhere i think discovery or Nat geo that T-rex wasnt all that great and that he was basically a scavenger type of dinosaur and not the great big hunter he was hyped to be. And I kinda believe the theory that the latter dino's had feathers as they were evolving into birds. such as archyeopterix(did i spell that right)

Dinosaurs never ever existed. The devil put them there (their remains) to cloud our minds. Oh, the devil also created the other planets of our solar system. It's also been theorized they're not even planets at all, and more like optical-illusions. Finally, the devil's powerful and dark trickery somehow managed to shape-shift the Earth from being square to a sphere somehow after the BIBLE was written.

If the dinosaurs did exist (which they didn’t, duh), my favorite would be the triceratops, duh.

There were no dinosaurs. God put those bones there 2000 years ago to trick us.
