Giant Killer Parrot Dinosaur Discovered

Well, its head looks like a parrot to me, anyway. Maybe it was not a "killer," since it had a toothless beak. But the rest of my title is accurate, I think.

It was the size of a T-Rex, but how did this thing kill stuff? By stepping on it?
Gigantoraptor, researchers say, might be the creature that gave rise to the flying, feathered friends we know today.

Maybe. But if that is the case, it needed several more generations to do it, or several billion. From the photos, this thing was not on the verge of taking flight.

Any thoughts on the adaptive superiority of this? Did it make other animals die laughing?

More at the Times.

What's the difference between a giant bird and a dinosaur with feathers?

Why can't they just say this is a giant bird that proves incorrect a part of evolutionary theory? Then they can add that evolutionary theory is true science because it various parts are constantly being proven wrong.

Looks like a creature that was cut out of Jason and the Argonauts and left on the cutting floor. Where do the come up with this stuff?

And they have the nerve to accuse religious people of believing in fairy tales and myth. They don't even TRY to get these things right do they?

I'm just waiting until they, once again, have to retroactively confess their ignorance about what this fossil actually might be.
