Actor Jeff Goldblum weighed in on a (vaguely) pressing matter on Twitter over the weekend: Should scientists recreate dinosaurs?
First, no one is currently able to recreate dinosaurs. But they are trying. Entrepreneur reports that a team of scientists from Harvard and Yale are reverse evolving chickens into dinosaurs. Yes, chickens. They are apparently closely related to dinosaurs, and the team has already made significant strides in mutating chickens back to the creatures from which they descended.
The publication also reports that Harvard scientists also recently inserted the genes of a woolly mammoth into elephants in order to recreate the extinct beasts.
Of course, Entrepreneur tweeted this story out, prompted Goldblum, who played Dr. Ian Malcolm in the film series, to weigh in with one of his characters most famous quotes.
Fans of Goldblum (and presumably all things Jurassic) loved his comment, and responded with gifs and jokes of their own.
Chris Pratt’s character Owen was utilized by one fan.
And, in case you forgot the original moment, another fan recreated it as a gif.
However, some brave folks welcome the return of dinosaurs.
Fine. Just don’t breed raptors, okay?
