While nature holds a vast wealth of unknowns in which man can glean and learn from but practicing science in evolution can be very imaginative. From an examination that came from a fragmentary set of jaws and teeth, scientists in Paleontology decided this was a dinosaur known as “Azendohsaurus madagaskarensis.” Originally the fossil of bones and teeth were found in 1972, near (and named for) a village in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. The current research paper draws it’s study from fossils that were discovered in the late 1990s in southwestern Madagascar.
New research had revealed after analyzing the whole skull turned out these fossils are not a dinosaurs after all but rather are part of a group of animals that includes birds and crocodilians but not lizards, snakes, or turtles. Did they admit fault for now being more through with their examination of just jaws and teeth? No, instead they restored into mentioning a rescue theory known as convergent evolution where by similar features were found to be in unrelated lineages.
“This is the way science works,” says John J. Flynn, curator in the Division of Paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History. Really? So in other words even believing in convergent evolution one makes broad assumptions with so little data? Dinosaurs are vastly used to promote evolution, hype is also used in competition with other funding in other branches, but this is not the way science works! Being wrong on classification is one thing but dodging one’s responsibility for the reason of the reclassification that had to occur is quite another.
What about expansion of science theories? Inflation which was invented during the 1980s to rescue problems in cosmology has undergone several modifications. There is a growing belief that one inflation wasn’t the answer to solving the problem so another proposal from two studies was invented which stated that two inflation periods were needed.
New Scientist describes it…
“Just 10-37 seconds or so after its birth, a period of inflation is thought to have caused the universe to balloon in size. This process is thought to have amplified tiny quantum fluctuations in the vacuum, giving rise to the megastructures we see all around us in the universe today.”
“A second profound transformation is thought to have followed hot on the heels of inflation. Just microseconds old and at trillions of degrees, the universe condensed from a superhot soup of sub-nuclear particles called a quark-gluon plasma (QGP) into particles such as protons and neutrons. But exactly how this happened is far from clear…”
“Right now, the two new studies raise more questions than they answer. The physics of QGPs that contain more matter than antimatter is difficult to calculate, so little is known about how they behave.”
Could we see more stages beyond just two? Quite possible, as they stack one problem on top over another (until the majority of the group decides to try a new theory). This all seems like they are not progressing very well and it’s not how science works either!
