Why was the name 'Brontosaurus' brought back from the dead?

"which lived during the Jurassic period about 150 million years ago."
As I pointed out elsewhere, the dinos' remnants sticking from ground worldwide suggest these animals lived much more recently, having in mind the rock erosion rate (ca 40 ft/my). It would be certainly interesting to plot the erosion-made damages on their exposed parts to the erosion rate, to ascertain the actual time of their living. That would, of course, imply a whole new field of investigating and reconstruing the world of the time, including their possible cohabitation with humans.

Yes, the Flintstone's family pet "Dino" was a dinosaur!
Yep, sounds almost as silly as Simpsons'' predicting Trump as president.
Joke aside, I was always perplexed by the lack of dinos and humans fossilized together, But on the other hand, I don't think many fossils of humans and crocs will be found together by some future paleontologists.
The most I've found were intermingled tracks of both (the human ones being giant, by the way) in a petrified river bed. Still not negllgible, though.
