I got so tickled at Jared. Keep in mind - he's 7 years old. Like most 7 year old boys, he's a budding paleontologist. Dinosaurs, reptiles, and the like fascinate him.
So he came up to me last night and asked me if crocodiles were cold-blooded. (We had talked about cold/warm blooded animals a few nights ago.)
Me: Yes, crocodiles are cold blooded. They're reptiles.
Jared: Then dinosaurs are cold blooded.
Me: Well, son, we don't really know. What makes you think that?
Jared: Mom, you know crocodiles are dinosaurs. So, if crocodiles are cold blooded, then dinosaurs are cold blooded.
Me: I can't argue with your logic there....
although I can see the fallacy (ie - we don't know enough about all dinosaurs, some may have been related to birds rather than reptiles), he doesn't have enough information to know it, and for 7, that's a pretty formidable use of logic!
The way this boy thinks is so interesting. I'm loving the extra time alone with him to see how he thinks!
