Were Dinosaurs Warm- or Cold-Blooded? Maybe Neither!

The debate has raged for decades whether or not dinosaurs are warm-blooded or cold-blooded. They had to be cold-blooded because they were just overgrown, terrible lizards, yes? However, since an ancestor for bird evolution could not be found, dinosaurs were nominated as candidates for the bird ancestor position and given the status of warm-blooded.

Dino-to-bird evolution is the dominant viewpoint for evolutionary scientists, but it is not unanimous. There are problems with it, including the fact that dinosaurs ate birds, and dinosaur fossils have been found with modern birds, so those facts should destroy the "theory" right there. Evolutionists get desperate to deny the Creator, and give evolution undeserved credit for all sorts of change, further reducing origins science to absurdity.

There is hope in the dino-to-bird camp. New studies indicate that instead of either/or regarding dinosaur warm- or cold-bloodedness, it may be neither/nor. Unfortunately (and despite speculations that sound like scientific facts), scientists are attempting to make the evidence fit their presuppositions; there were no dinosaurs stepping forward to discuss matters and set the record straight.

It makes more sense to admit that the evidence supports a recent creation, and not millions of years of evolution.
Were dinosaurs cold-blooded or warm-blooded? Debate has raged for decades. The latest answer: neither. They were probably in between.

“Our results showed that dinosaurs had growth and metabolic rates that were actually not characteristic of warm-blooded or even cold-blooded organisms,” explains University of Arizona evolutionary biologist and ecologist Brian Enquist. “They did not act like mammals or birds nor did they act like reptiles or fish. Instead, they had growth rates and metabolisms intermediate to warm-blooded and cold-blooded organisms of today. In short, they had physiologies that are not common in today's world.”
