Current thinking is that birds were already developing as a distinct biological class even before the mass extinction. Some fossils have been found dating back to the well within the era of the dinosaurs that seem to have many modern bird characteristics. See: Origin of Birds on Wikipedia.

It is possible to be Antizionist without being Antisemitic. But Antizionism is so widely used as cover for Antisemitism that you'll spend all your time and effort defending your position, and losing. Also note, you don't have to be Antizionist (against the idea of Jews having their own state in the territory called Palestine) to disapprove of Israeli policies towards the Palestinian Arabs. There

There has been talk of the European version of "political correctness" running out of control for some years, but here we have the proof. This is crazier than the weirdest campus tantrum you've ever heard of. It's a completely ridiculous idea to think you could ban runes.

Yes, that's an important factor not considered in current talk about sea levels in Europe. Regardless of any climate change effects on sea level, the whole southern end of Britain is sinking, and Scotland is rising. (As is the entire Scandinavian peninsula.) Not as quickly as in the past, but the 'isostatic rebound' from the removal of the glaciers is not completely done, just as it's not complet

Quote In a surprise turn of events, a Denver ballot initiative to effectively decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms, previously thought to have failed, now appears to have narrowly passed after all. This would make the Mile High City the first in the U.S. to decriminalize psilocybin. If the unofficial final tally holds, Denver law enforcement will be directed to treat psychedelic mushrooms own

Yes, recent atmospheric nuclear testing affects current living organisms. Carbon-14 is absorbed by living creatures, not dead ones. We and all things living at this time will seem to come from the far future if carbon-dated by some archeologists of another era -- if those archeologists are not aware of the nuclear testing and fail to correct.

If you read the entire linked article, you would see this is much more than one individual's experience.

Much has been made of the speed of Chinese modernization. The Chinese economy has been growing at double digit rates for most of the past two decades. There are consequences to such hasty growth.

Different seeds have different abilities to survive for long periods. Ordinary wheat is just a grass, and seeds can apparently become useless (dead) in a mere 3-5 years at normal storage temperatures. Not sure how long it lasts if frozen. Legume seeds, on the other hand, have lasted thousands of years without being frozen. Given how biological materials keep turning out to be more durable than

We had a similar crisis just a few years back here in the US with avian influenza wiping out a major part of the chicken and turkey flocks. Some commercial producers were bankrupted and the big producers like Perdue are still trying to recover their losses. But the US has a much higher-tech agricultural sector, over-all. They found ways to control the problem. It's much less certain that the Chin

The Mueller probe was looking in the wrong places. (Which is not his fault, he was given a specific task.) Trump was not compromised recently. The place to be looking is his ties to organized crime. This has been talked about since the 70s. It was known that he and his father were cooperating with the mob to some degree or another, and that's part of how they managed to get so much construction w

And far more easily preventable! Most of this comes from factory farming, which could be regulated if the influence of certain lobbyists could be overcome.

Yes, I have looked at it several times. The image seems to be a Thylacine, but what is the source of the image? As already pointed out by Archaic, it doesn't look quite realistic. Besides being slightly blurry, it doesn't seem to move correctly in some ways. The slight blurriness and seemingly awkward motion might be caused by being out of focus relative to the Dingo which was the actual target o

No, in historic times the Thylacine was found only on Tasmania. Remember, "historic times" in Australia means since 26 January 1788 when the first British colonization fleet landed. Explorers sighted and landed on Australia as early as 1606, but that was the first settlement and extensive exploration. There might well have still been a few Thylacines in certain areas of the Australian m

That is really eerie. How could they film something like that and not notice it? Here's the really confounding problem: The range of the Dingo does not include Tasmania. The range of the Thylacine was only Tasmania. They were not seen on the Australian mainland in historic times, at least. Apparently there are aboriginal rock drawings that look like Thylacines, so they were probably found on

No, "obstruction of justice" is impeding law enforcement officers in an investigation. Refusing to testify to Congress, as clearly required by the constitutional (and court upheld) right of Congress to oversee the Executive branch, is "Contempt of Congress". They can impose penalties directly on the refusing official, including jail time, I believe.

You are misinterpreting. The Russians did not "abandon" Christianity. They were forced to stop practicing by the state. And, in fact, they were originally forced to start practicing by an earlier state. "Vladimir the Great" made it the state religion by decree in 988, just as Theodosius had made Christianity the state religion of the Roman Empire by decree in 380. And after
