Tyrannosaurus

Dinosaurs

Imagine yourself in your home, sitting down to your breakfast before going about your day. Suddenly the floor begins to vibrate in short, regular intervals. ‘Strange,’ you think, crossing to your kitchen window, ‘I don’t live near an earthquake zone.’ As you peer out the window, you gasp in awe. A creature taller than two houses, with a neck as long as its body and a tail even longer, plods slowly down the street. The ground shudders with every step the creature takes.

Slowly, you step out of your house to examine the creature closer. The creature notices the movement, and swings its massive head and neck around to you. You shrink away instinctively, but you stand your ground. The creature’s head is nearly as big as your body, with a massive crest over its brow. It peers at you with semi-intelligent eyes, deciding whether or not you are a threat.

You can still feel the ground shudder long after the creature has disappeared, as you remain rooted to the spot.

Many children dream emphatically for scenarios such as this. Dinosaurs are as much a part of our history as any human event ever was. They are an integral part of almost every childhood. Children spend countless hours playing with their dinosaur models, sleeping with their dinosaur stuffed animals, and reading dinosaur books. Even as adults, we retain a certain amount of fascination for these magnificent creatures. We still read news articles about new discoveries with a child’s abandon, and watch stories about dinosaurs on TV with an intensity that we rarely give to others. As adults, we still dream and wonder what it would be like to walk with dinosaurs. We wonder what it would have been like to see these creatures in person, to touch them, smell them, and hear them. Our imaginations run wild when it comes to how these creatures appeared in life, fueled by the facts we do know, and the facts that constantly come to light.

Evidence abounds for their existence, not the least of which are massive caches of fossils. Critics have discounted this physical evidence, saying that any ‘physical evidence’ is merely proof of a hoax. Somehow, it seems impossible that anyone could fake such large and obviously organic creatures. From mummified remains to mere footprints, we have evidence of over 700 different species of dinosaurs. They ranged in size from the size of a modern day chicken to the height of a six story building and length of 50 yards or more. The
