MIAMI (AP) -- The fossils of feathered dinosaurs whose discoveries helped firm hypotheses on the origin of birds will be exhibited publicly in the U.S. for the first time this weekend.

The roughly 120-million-year-old remains being displayed at the Miami Science Museum starting Saturday were all found in northeastern China beginning in 1998 and helped quiet - though not totally muffle - decades-old debates on the link between dinosaurs and birds. Most have never been seen outside China.

"For 150 years, people argued over the origin of birds," said Matt Lamanna, a paleontologist at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh and an adviser to the "Dinosaurs of China" exhibit. "This debate was still raging in the middle of the 1990s and then somebody went to China and found these fossils."

Wait.  I don't think I've been to Pharyngula today...

I don't think I have, but I do see the post there.

Of course I wouldn't have minded anyway.

On may way over there in another tab...

Ok, now my brain has caught up with my fingers.

I'm all good now, perhaps I can read for comprehension.
