Forgive me if I don't have all your fantasy jargon down, but the point was that the only "proof" you have are bones. The only thing a bone proves is that the creature once lived. You don't know its behavior, you don't know its diet, you don't know how many kids it had. And you especially don't know if those kids were on their way to/from becoming something else.
You've lined up some bones from least complex to most complex, slap the label "science!" on it, and call it good. And now you religiously cling to to your ideals, including the already-disproven parts, in hopes that repeating a lie often enough will make it stick.
