    So even more dinosaurs had feathers than we previously thought? We now even have more good reason to think dinosaurs and birds are related, and thus even more reason to think evolution is true and Creationism has no basis in science. I wonder how long until creationist museums start correctly portraying dinosaurs with feathers? Probably never. Eventually you might almost be able to tell who is and who isn’t a creationist based on weather or not they think of dinosaurs as feathered creatures.
