Fox news: evolution proved

Fox news is often considered to be part of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy™ that teams American Neo-Con interventionists with Young Earth creation loonies.

Say it ain't so:

CLEVELAND — A new dinosaur species was a plant-eater with yard-long horns over its eyebrows, suggesting an evolutionary middle step between older dinosaurs with even larger horns and the small-horned creatures that followed, experts said.
That makes the newly found creature an intermediate between older forms with large horns and later small-horned relatives, said State of Utah paleontologist Jim Kirkland, who with Douglas Wolfe identified Zuniceratops in New Mexico in 1998. He predicted then that something like Ryan's find would turn up.

"Lo and behold, evolutionary theory actually works," he said.
