I think they're appealing because they demand answers of us.

No. Dinosaurs are appealing because they're gigantic walking mountains of flesh-rending awesomeness.

It might be a quibble over terminology, but I disagree with the statement that dinosaurs are still alive because there are birds around.
Everything that we classify as dinosaurs is gone. Birds evolved from one line of dinosaurs and become avians, thus they are no longer dinosaurs.

If you want to use the 'modern' dinosaur argument, then you could also say that humans that 'modern' bacteria, because one branch of the bacteria line evolved into other forms and eventually became homo sapiens.
