Gotta brag on my son.
My son is almost 4. He was playing with his toy dinosaurs. He had a cheaply made pteranodon and asked, "Daddy, why did they put feathers on the pteranodon? Pterandons didn't have feathers; only theropods had feathers"

I said, "That's right son. I don't know why they put feathers on it."

I then asked him, "What did theropods turn into?"

He said, "Birds."

Proud of my little boy. He's smart Thumbsup

...

I'm thinking about taking my toy dinosaurs down from the attic now... And my LEGO, and my PlayMo, and my toy cars, and then watch my favorite disney movies on VHS.
Thanks for that KC, now I need to go and preform CPR on the 90's...

KC, I envy you. You've got yourself the most intriguing job, raising a new person. I don't know if you have such a good memory, but in your place I'd do my best to avoid all the mistakes that my parents made.

I envy you the years ahead when he'll ask you questions continually, questions that you can answer, answers that will open new areas of interest. The curiosity and confidence in figuring out things burns and expands like... consciousness.

I see you give him the latest scientific knowledge. When I played with dinosaurs, nobody yet knew that theropods had feathers, that velociraptors were these fluffy ostrich-like deadly monsters. The dinosaurs of my childhood were mostly bare as a finger.

I'm must curious about something. What is the most difficult thing about raising a child? The need for watching? Constant responsibility? Danger of fatal injury or disease? Disobedience? Feeding, refusal to feed, cleaning, deworming? Getting some sleep? Maintaining patience? Not caring about the looks of others at shop? Googling up deadly poisonous toys made in China? Avoiding the child's addiction on TV and neuromarketing? Exorcizing SpongeBob possession?

I don't know KC too well, so this crossed my mind too:

Yeah, but then you'll have him believing in Calvanism. It all evens out. Drinking Beverage

No, but seriously. I am surprised your child even knows those words. O-o

I am not surprised, I am worried.

I thought if anyone, you'd understand. I guess I was wrong.

My family always likes a good roast dinosaur for dinner.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Yum, tastes just like chicken. Drooling

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
