"From a scientific perspective, the dinosaurs' birth certificate was signed less than two centuries ago, even though records show that people had pondered the significance of their fossilzed vestiges for several millennia. Yet, even millennia pale when compared to the actual age of the objects themseleves; the first fossils of dinosaurs were forged from their skelletons that were burried over 200 million years ago."
