Re: Anybody remember "Gargoyles"?

I think it's very likely that all theropods did have feathers, but that's beside the point. The point is that science fiction is always at risk of being contradicted by new science, but the conceit of how the Jurassic Park dinosaurs were created provides a handy excuse for any aspects of their portrayal that conflict with later scientific findings, whether it's about feathers or anything else.
