Because the whole skeleton hasn't been found yet.

It's true that a complete T-Rex skeleton hasn't been found, the closest is this:

Why think that there is two front legs that haven't been found yet?
Unique beliefs debate
2017-05-05 20:08:15
But now that I think of it, the google definition of dinosaur is:
a fossil reptile of the Mesozoic era, often reaching an enormous size.
So it isn't accurate to call the Alligator or Crocodile a dinosaur...

Sure, but I always was told they are technically present-day dinosaurs, regardless of the selective pressures they faced since the Mesozoic epo­ch.

Bi0Hazard: What economists tend to agree on (left and right wing economists:( 1. Carbon emissions tax is worth it. 2. Rent control has an overall negative impact on affordable housing quality and availability. 3. Citizens better off if more high-skilled immigrants are permitted to immigrate for work (increase for high skilled work VISAs). 4. Dynamic pricing for transportation services is net beneficial for consumers. 5. Mortgage tax deduction is bad. 6. Tax benefits from getting health insurance through employer is bad. 7. Taxing capital income at a lower rate than labor income is bad. 8. U.S. trade with China makes Americans better off. 9. The benefits of free trade far outweigh the negative impacts (Almost all economists are pro-free trade). 10. U.S. citizens are better off with NAFTA than the previous deal (Economists tend to have a more positive view of NAFTA). 11. Tariffs do more harm than good. 12. Replacing U.S. monetary policy with a gold standard would not improve price stability and employment (economists are pro-central bank). 13. The American recovery and reinvestment act (economic stimulus) and bailouts lowered the unemployment rate. Modern mainstream economics is influenced by many major thinkers and schools of thought. It tends to be dominated by neoclassical economics and a mixture of Keynesian economics. This is called Neoclassical synthesis ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoclassical_synthesis ). Just think: Keynesian in macroeconomics and neoclassical in microeconomics.

3. Citizens better off if more high-skilled immigrants are permitted to immigrate for work (increase for high skilled work VISAs).

4. Dynamic pricing for transportation services is net beneficial for consumers.

5. Mortgage tax deduction is bad.

6. Tax benefits from getting health insurance through employer is bad.
