Newfound Dinosaur a Transitional Creature
By MALCOLM RITTER
ASSOCIATED PRESS

Caught in the act of evolution, the odd-looking, feathered dinosaur was becoming more vegetarian, moving away from its meat-eating ancestors.

It had the built-for-speed legs of meat-eaters, but was developing the bigger belly of plant-eaters. It had already lost the serrated teeth needed for tearing flesh. Those were replaced with the smaller, duller vegetarian variety.

"I doubt seriously this animal could cut a steak with that mouth," said Utah state paleontologist James Kirkland, one of those who discovered the bones of the beast in east-central Utah.

The scientists dubbed it Falcarius utahensis. Bones from hundreds or maybe thousands of these dinosaurs were discovered at a two-acre dig site south of the town of Green River. Nobody knows why they gathered there or what killed them, Kirkland said.

Damn that Lucifer. DAMN HIM STRAIGHT TO HELL!!!! He's now putting transitional fossils out there to further confuse, confound and befuddle people into not believing the Bible as literal truth!

1. a vega-raptor
slices, dices, cuts through cucumbers like a hot knife through butter.

i'm sure there were all kinds of odd creatures that didn't make it to the ark 6,000 years ago when the world was created after a day of rest.

2. Of course this is true
The animal lived a vibrant exciting dinosaur life, about
3000 years ago or so. totally consistent with intelligent
design. No problems here.

5. They won't tell you about the human footprints they found
with the bones. These creatures lived right along side the american indian tribes.

6. Wow! The devil shure is sneaky.
But if the King James version of the bible ws good enough for St. Paul, it's good enough for me. God said it, I beleive it, that settles it.
