Dinosaurs Could Have Survived The Asteroid, Study Finds

The extinction of dinosaurs might be down to “colossal bad luck,” a new study has found. After examining an up-to-date fossil record, scientists believe that had the asteroid collision that fuelled their demise happened a little earlier or later, they may have been able to survive. While that may sound disappointing to some, we should thank our lucky stars as if they hadn’t been wiped out, we probably wouldn’t be here today...

Okay, what about the sightings of modern humans of dinosaurs, especially primitive tribes in Australia. Forgot where I read it.

What about St. George who is said to have killed a dragon or dinosaur? Is that an old wive's tale? Or was this dragon Satan?

I think there are plenty of other threads readily available to argue about silly Answers in Genesis theories.

Dinosaurs just turned into birds for the most part.

Those dinosaurs who had turned into birds were able to fly to better locations probably following the same migration as today's birds.

That depends on what you mean by dinosaur. Some dinosaurs were tall as buildings, others would have been as small as chickens.

There is a bird called a Hoatzin that has teeth and claws on its wings.

It does not have teeth, but it does have claws on its wings that it uses to grab onto branches to steady itself.

I would be more concerned about the carnivorous Eagle, which has been known to pick up children in its talons, than the humble Hoatzin, which is a vegetarian.

Look at this: Western long-beaked echidna --  - a mammal that lays eggs like a bird, and also eats earthworms like some birds.

Corroborating evidence to what you said regarding size. Even the velociraptor doesn't look that scary size-wize.

Eagles attack things much bigger than children frequently. Killing deer, antelopes, wolves, coyotes, and mountain goats is an every day thing for the large species.

(Warning pretty graphic - there is one first attack that doesn't seem too bad and then it attacks another person):

The platypus is also a monotreme - an egg-laying aquatic mammal, with a body like an otter, webbed feet, and a bill like a duck.

I don't deny that eagles can be pretty nasty predators, but they don't just carry off children in their talons.

Wasn't there another video that showed a very small child being carried off in the talons of an eagle only to be dropped within seconds? Was this a hoax? Even in that graphic video shown immediately above, if that not so small young lad had not been immediately rescued, he could have died from that attack. Even birds, like geese, can be nasty. We used to raise geese. They make fearless watch dogs.

Perhaps you were thinking of this video.  I am about 70% sure it turned out to be a hoax.  Tongue
