I don't think so Tim.

Saw this on Reddit like a month ago. It's the foot of a Moa or some such large flightless bird.

Damn, actually on Reddit before you make fun of it. Most of the time its better than FJ, and i have been going on FJ for over 3 tears and I recently began going on Reddit. Its good trust me.

Googled that **** expecting to see a ferocious beast and all I got is a bloody Moa.

This is the preserved foot of a Moa, a large flightless bird native to New Zealand that went extinct around 1500. It looks like a dinosaur foot.
#661 to #631 - zakisking (01/11/2013) [-]
didnt go extinct around 1500s it was about 1650-1700 because the maori hunted them to extinction

Technically birds are dinosaurs.
#664 to #639 - John Cena (01/11/2013) [-]
"Paleontologists regard birds as the only clade of dinosaurs to have survived the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event 65.5 Ma (million years) ago."

Googled it, read about it on wikipedia and I now agree with you. The statement "birds are dinosaurs" is technically true.
User avatar #660 to #639 - mysticpichu (01/11/2013) [-]
not exactly seeing as dinosaurs and birds have evolved so much that they are classified as two different classes. it is true however that birds evolved from dinosaurs.

so you could say a bird is an evolved dinosaur

Technically you're retarded.
User avatar #643 to #642 - TheOneKing (01/11/2013) [-]
Not if you know anything about paleontology or taxonomy. Birds are still dinosaurs in the same way dogs are still canines and humans are still primates.
User avatar #644 to #643 - zarcos (01/11/2013) [-]
I really wish you had the mental capacity to see how dumb you are.
User avatar #648 to #644 - TheOneKing (01/11/2013) [-]
The stupidity you perceive is not due to my understanding of the evidence but your lack there of I'm afraid. Birds are in fact the closest living descendants of dinosaurs we have and so are practically modern dinosaurs. Nearly every feature exclusive to birds we find in dinosaurs.
User avatar #649 to #648 - zarcos (01/11/2013) [-]
I am aware that birds are related to dinosaurs but that doesn't make them one in the same.
User avatar #650 to #649 - TheOneKing (01/11/2013) [-]
You do realize that dinosaurs are a very large classification of many different animals. Birds are part of a class called Aves which are again part of a clade known as avialae which is just a small part in a larger clade which include dinosaurs. In this way birds are still classifiable in the same group along with dinosaurs just like mice are with rodents. They are just a more specific classification of a larger group that's all.
User avatar #652 to #650 - zarcos (01/11/2013) [-]
yeah and the farther back you go the more living organisms are included. Hell if you get general enough plants and fungi are related to birds.
User avatar #655 to #652 - TheOneKing (01/11/2013) [-]
If you want to go to as general as possible yeah but you don't need to go that far with birds and dinosaurs, you don't need to go past the class level in the scientific classification
User avatar #657 to #655 - zarcos (01/11/2013) [-]
You do realize that that anything not in the group avialae isn't a bird right?
User avatar #716 to #657 - TheOneKing (01/12/2013) [-]
Dinosaurs aren't birds but birds are dinosaurs. It's like how every square is a rectangle but not vice versa and avialae is part of a larger group known as dinosauria.

The generally accepted definition of dinosaurs is reptilian creatures that went extinct 65 million years ago. Technically your right, but that's the same as saying human's are chimps, which is not very ******* accurate, is it?
User avatar #717 to #658 - TheOneKing (01/12/2013) [-]
In mass yes. But it'd be more accurate to say that humans are monkeys rather than chimps.

You realize there's no ******* chance a tissue would be preserved for SO long, when we hardly have preserved tissues of ancient mammals, right?

Unless it was frozen or buried in a honey casket or dipped in formalin, there's no chance. At all.
User avatar #627 to #625 - alexeilvlrussian (01/11/2013) [-]
^ Also that said assuming a Megalopterix was even a dinosaur.
User avatar #626 to #625 - sketchE ONLINE (01/11/2013) [-]
so theres three possible reasons?
User avatar #629 to #626 - alexeilvlrussian (01/11/2013) [-]
No, I highly doubt a "dinosaur" would live anywhere near ice, there weren't honey-making bees in that period and, unless philosoraptor made some, no formalin.

OP, here is a picture of a Megalapterix.
Does this look like a dinosaur to you?
******* .
User avatar #640 to #611 - TheOneKing (01/11/2013) [-]
Yes. Birds are dinosaurs just like humans are still technically monkeys (we're actually part of a classification known as "old world monkeys" just like all great apes are)
User avatar #709 to #640 - syis (01/12/2013) [-]
Whereas the human's biological criterias totally match with the monkey the birds are NOT dinosaurs.
We would start the difference list with the teeth, birds don't have any, dinosaurs had them. This is how you proceed in biology.
I could also argue on the point that dinosaur means, in latin, big lizard and that a lizard is a reptilian.
User avatar #715 to #709 - TheOneKing (01/12/2013) [-]
Birds have the genetic coding still in their DNA to make teeth and scientist have proven this with chicken embryos. And so what? That point is irrelevant to whether or not a species is related and every feature we associate as being exclusive to birds scientists have discovered in dinosaurs. Not the big sauropods, but the smaller theropods like the raptors.
User avatar #718 to #715 - syis (01/13/2013) [-]
Well... The scientists grew a human ear out of a mouse, that doesn't make it a monkey...
User avatar #726 to #718 - TheOneKing (01/14/2013) [-]
No. What they did was make something that looked like a human ear by seeding in cow cells implanted into the mouse. It wasn't an actual ear. It's not the same as re-activating dormant genes to cause teeth in chickens to grow.
User avatar #727 to #726 - syis (01/14/2013) [-]
Our genetic code goes back to the time we were simple monocellular organisms.
Your argument is irrelevant.
Everything is here in our DNA, to grow scales, feathers, wings or tentacles.
Species are to be separated regarding to their actual features, not regarding to whatever they could become if we activated their dormant genes.
User avatar #729 to #727 - TheOneKing (01/15/2013) [-]
Actually no. We cannot grow scales or feathers. We do not possess the genetic sequencing to create these features as the ancestors that eventually did grow feathers took a different path in evolution than those ancestors who grew hair and it's far easier to lose something than to gain it. Also our DNA doesn't actually have the sequencing to make wings as our evolution was far different from others. For a human to grow wings it would take many generations of mutations and is very expensive biologically as it requires new structures to be formed as well as loss in others. Tentacles are the same way. We don't have the dormant genes to do this but we do have the dormant genes to have thicker body hair and other features we associate with other apes like chimps. It's not the only reason to assess this either it was an example and I showed how your argument of "Science grew a human ear out of a mouse" was utter crap as no human dna was in it and it wasn't even a real ear. Even if you only go for features alone, I repeat, nearly every feature we associate as being only belonging to birds are found also in dinosaurs and it can be evidently seen by anyone who actually looks at them. Just like how we have a number of features similar to monkeys. We are monkeys for the same reason birds are dinosaurs, dogs are canines and rats are rodents.
User avatar #730 to #729 - syis (01/16/2013) [-]
Birds are not dinosaurs since they all have a beak and no teeth and dinosaurs all have teeth, especially the ones birds come from.
Again, dormant genes are not relevant in the classification of the species.
Not mentioning that the word "dinosaur" refers to a totally extinct kind of reptilians.
Whereas every biology book refers to the human as a part of primates family, I dare you to find ANY biology book referring to the bird as an actual dinosaur.
User avatar #731 to #730 - TheOneKing (01/17/2013) [-]
Dinosaurs are a vast group of animals in a clade known as Dinosauria. Birds are the only surviving class of this clade. And there were dinosaurs with beaks and no teeth. Oviraptor for example which is one of the dinosaur species believed to later have evolved to birds. The American Museum of Natural History , Glorified Dinosaurs: The Origin and Early Evolution of Birds and Feathered Dinosaurs: The Origin of Birds all classify birds as being dinosaurs.

Can I bring in an expert? I have a buddy that is an expert in prehistoric preserved tissue.

So he says it is what you say it is, says it is worth 23 billion, I will give you 1,000.

Not many people are in the market for dino tissue, I have an overhead after all.
