Do Scientists Not Watch Movies?


Chicken_TRexSeriously, do they not like movies? Maybe if they watched more they would learn something from them. Like how in Jurassic Park everything ended in disaster! But these things won’t stop them, first it’s robot suits from Cyberdyne, now they’re reviving Dinosaurs.

A Canadian Paleontologist, Hans Larsson,  plans to show off his skills and take a chicken embryo and make a dinosaur out of it.  He will attempt to take the genetics of birds and play around with it to reactivate the genetic traits birds have since evolved from. He chose chicken embryos to prevent them from turning into giant razor toothed monsters.

“God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs…” Dr. Ian Malcolm

Jeff Goldblum always had a way with words. That is until he fell off that cliff in New Zealand. You know that totally happened right? It was on twitter so it must be true! But I digress…

Larsson wants to use his research in showing evolution in birds and how the basics of dinosaurs are still there today. The science is still new and not fully developed, but he hopes that eventually it will be used to hatch dinosaurs instead of chickens! Great, now I will be able to have my very own pet Raptor!
