Credit Where Credit’s Due: Arthur Conan Doyle’s Dinosaurs

With the record-breaking opening weekend of “Jurassic World” just behind us, this article reminds the regular folk that Arthur Conan Doyle popularized the concept of man versus dinosaur long before Michael Crichton (and that “Sherlock Holmes” flick with the lovely Ben Syder).

In an article titled “Lost World’: Original Jurassic Park Dates Back to 1912,” Benjamin Radford writes, “What may be lost in the mixed reviews and discussions over the film’s scientific accuracy is that the origins of’“Jurassic World’ go back much further than 1993′s Oscar-collecting ‘Jurassic Park,’ long before Steven Spielberg or ‘Jurassic Park’ author/screenwriter Michael Crichton were born. The plot of humans living alongside dinosaurs was actually first made popular by the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.”

Isn’t that lovely? Give the whole article a read by clicking on the title above or clicking HERE.

    YAYYY. I read The Lost World long, long before I ever read Sherlock Holmes. It’s near and dear to me. I wanted to be a paleontologist until math destroyed all my dreams. I haven’t seen JW yet (going on Friday!) but I can still rattle off dinosaur names at you, like a 6-year-old.
