Chickenosaurus: Building a Dinosaur from a ChickenSubmitted by TommyPaine on Sun, 12/29/2013 - 14:49
As long as DP'ers are talking about dinosaurs and humans living together, it should be pointed out that modern birds are decedents of dinosaurs.
Furthermore, scientists have identified that there is an "on/off switch" within genes that can activate or repress previous physical traits.
As an organism evolves over time, they do not "lose" previous physical traits. Instead, those traits stay within the genes, but somehow the switch is turned off.
Scientists have figure out out to turn back on some of those traits. At least, when it comes to chickens.
They have been able to switch on certain traits so that chickens start to grow teeth, long tails, and scales. In other words, they revert back to their dinosaur physical traits.
This video explains the science of evolution, and is also funny and entertaining:
P.S. Yes, humans live with dinosaurs -- not back in the day with T-Rex, but today with birds.
