Dinosaur Crimes


“Dinosaur crimes!”  The phrase could mean many things:

•Perhaps the offense against scientific standards of rationality committed by “young-Earth creationists” (of whom we likely had none in last night’s skeptic-heavy debate audience, which, despite a courageous and very well-received effort by Rabbi Simcha, voted overwhelmingly that religion does not make people better).

•Perhaps cruelty toward animals (the topic of our next Lolita Bar debate, on May 6), facilitated by time travel.

•Perhaps illegal tampering with ancient bones, as described in the headline of this article.

•Or just maybe: the name of my classic rock cover band, if I ever start one.  Oh, yeah.
