  1. Good for you. But, do you think that we can say something like that about other sciences (like History, between the Social sciences? (I'm thinking in the cliché of "collect stamps"). Or does not the process of publishing good enough to give them common sense to the general population?

  2. Most of the stereotype is driven by the commercialisation of dinosaurs by the several dinomanias flourished in the XX century, that used the natural appeal of dinosaurs as "child toys". A similar phenomenon is not present elsewhere in Science. (Have you ever seen a trilobite toy?)

    We can do more with high popularisation of paleontology for challenging these stereotypes
