I was hanging out at my normal gathering spot today, the University Village Jungle Gym and got to witness some ugliness. A boy about my age asked his Father (And I use that word loosely) if Dinosaurs existed. His Father's answer: NO.
Though there is near unanimous agreement amongst paleontologists that Dinosaurs DID exist this isn't what made me mad. I'm sure the Father knew they existed, he was just to lazy to go into an explanation of extinction. Hey, life isn't always pretty, deal with it.
I was very disappointed to put it mildly. How could a child grow-up in a house where Dinosaurs aren't talked about 100% of the time!
