This commentary is engaging at a High School level, and would be an interesting addition to any H.S. or Jr. High environmental/evolution curriculum. However, this is not advanced or college material.

Interesting insight into a common misconception surrounding what was supposed to be established scientific knowledge.  Parallels so many other aspects of scientific thought and exemplifies how easily one misinformed individual or group can significantly alter the course of progress.

I did not know that a dinosaur can have multiple names. I wonder if this happens when classifing any other organisms?
