Another quick reminder since i start seeing people saying “UwU both are good” in the tags and reblogs.

Reminder : it doesn’t matter how we portray them, they are dead so like let ppl have fun

But why does it matter dude I know it’s scientifically innacurate but ppl enjoying that innacurate version doesn’t have any negative applications???? Unless dinosaurs were brought back to life and ppl misidentified them or smthn it really has only negative impact keeping ppl from having fun with the fictional lizard dinos

It makes a big difference. People who make models for museums get passed over for projects because the owners don’t want to hear that their precious Jurassic Park lizards were actually weird birds, and “the public won’t get it anyway”. It makes a feedback loop so that even when people are presented with accurate depictions of past animals, they violently reject them. 

Scaly raptors are also a gift to the anti-evolution fanatics, who like to pretend that the rarity of big mainstream feathered dinosaurs is in some way indicative of conflict and confusion in the paleontology community. 

Also I get to tell my kids the dinosaurs did not die out and are still around today, which makes them all happy.
