Kudos to the AMNH
We were so deeply impressed by the quality of the information at the Dinosaur exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History. Over and over exhibit commentaries were written in perfect accord with the Scientific Method, drawing careful conclusions and taking pains to explain why this or that assumption was not a legitimate conclusion based on measurable data. And yet they stated quite unequivocally that our modern birds are direct descendants of dinosaurs, continuing their evolutionary line. This was justified because of paleontological research in the last couple of decades that has proven this once controversial hypothesis. Great writing and respectable science. Kudos, AMNH. See you again soon.
