Dragons Are Real!

Afternoon break from politics and such. Personally, I find this pretty cool

dragon bonPalaeontologists digging in a brickyard in southern Poland have discovered the fossilised remains of a dinosaur that they say is a previously unknown ancestor of the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The predator dinosaur, given the working name “Dragon”, lived around 200 million years ago, team member Dr Tomasz Sulej of the Polish Science Academy told Reuters.

It was 5 metres (yards) long and moved on two legs. Its longest teeth were 7 cm (2 inches) long.

“This is a completely new type of dinosaur that was so far unknown,” Sulej said on Friday. “Nobody even expected that members of this group lived in that time, so this gives us new knowledge about the whole evolution of the T-Rex group.”

I’ll be interested to see what kind of portrayal the palaeontologists will come up, based on the bones.

I’d also wonder what this does to the whole Darwinism vs. Intelligent Design debate, but, that would be throwing gas on kerosene 😉
