Not Everyone is Happy With Feathered Dinosaurs

Time and again I have used this blog to describe what I think is one of the most fascinating recent discoveries in paleontology: that birds are dinosaurs.

Not everyone is happy with this fact, though. The blog io9 recently posted sample images from a feathered dinosaur protest group who prefer their dinosaurs to be scaly. According to the "skeptics": "Dinosaurs are naked, leathery killing machines. They're not Brazilian Carnivale queens." Never mind that feathered dinosaurs are a fact (the fossils don't lie); if you want to join the movement you can get stickers to show your support here.
