So birds are reptiles
This is my theory:
Birds belong to a group called diapsids so do crocodilians and as did dinosaurs. It has recently been proved that velociraptors had "knob quillsy" I think they were called, which is where the feathers that are responsible for flight attached to the bone.

Basically I don't want to google it because I'm trying to learn to think more logically than I already do
Do you think my idea was plausible?
If not I'll just say birds are reptiles because Chuck Norris says so

EDIT: Yeah poorly expressed but I'm not in the mood for being all pedantic
EDIT2: Deleted some stuff, I'm tired and not in a mood for being pedantic cos I'm in the middle of a ton of chemistry work

My theory is that your theory is so poorly expressed that it loses all credibility

We'll choke on our vomit and that will be the end

We were fated to pretend

How the hell did you get through the auditions to become UG's archaeologist with a theory like that?

There's a difference between archaeology and paleontology. Paleontology is actually considered by geologists and paleontologists[obviously]. Due to the fact archaeology is concerned with people.

Haha I retract my statement and would suggest you leave palaeontology alone then.

:P the paleontology thing came from my biology tutor saying birds were reptiles, but he wouldn't explain it so i tried thinking about it using information i already knew

Birds came from dinosaurs. Not the other way round.

I realise that now, and I thought it in the first place, but then I remembered reading that raptors probably lost their power of flight but retained the "knob quills" but tbh i dont care much now

Actually dinosaurs evolved from a newt that was sent back in time by a scientist in the year 2043, DUH
