Newly Discovered Dinosaur Is The T-Rex's Vegetarian Relative

"Different parts of its body resemble those of other dinosaur groups due to mosaic convergent evolution," Marti­n Ezcurra, a professor at the University of Birmingham, said in a press release. "In this process, a region or regions of an organism resemble others of unrelated species because of a similar mode of life and evolutionary pressures. Chilesaurus provides a good example of how evolution works in deep time and it is one of the most interesting cases of convergent evolution documented in the history of life."

It's kinda baller that some 7 year old kid just stumbled across this and now it's giving a window into scientific research.

This all reminds me why it's so baffling when people deny evolution. Like, if God is the creator of all things seen and unseen, and we were made in His image. And we have the capacity to explore and understand what was created. Then wouldn't our continual understanding or exploration of the process bring us closer? Giving us this gift and then having it be "you can't use it" would just be perverse. I prefer to believe in a god that isn't a cosmic internet troll.

Found out about this dino on the Guardian and mentioned it on the main news thread but it is cool that this kid found it and it opened a window to expand our knowledge on dinosaur evolution.

Some people on the other hand prefer ignorance because some silly cow ate an apple because a snake told her too in the bible.

Evolution hasn't been concretely proven I don't think. Plus, it doesn't help that we still have not found any direct links from apes to humans.

Yes we share 99% of DNA with apes (and all life, really) but what does that even prove?

Not saying I don't think evolution is a thing, just saying that there's no concrete evidence that humans somehow evolved from apes who evolved from mice who evolved from amphibians who evolved from fish who evolved from amoeba

No I was talking about the dinosaur and the general theory, because it mentioned the skeleton being adapted to survive in that region.

Those are what, like some sort of crustacean kinda.

Lobsters look a little weird too if you think about it (I doubt these are half as tasty)

They look like giant amphipods that've adapted to land!

Or this and its a tank (the dorito bag sorta looks like its floating, and that seems to be a tank liner)

Those are in the same taxinomic class as amphipods, so yeah, they're very similar.

Giant isopods, essentially giant pillbugs

Ah screw the esoteric order of dagon, they're all obsessed with gold. Which means they're probably libertarians.
