One of the more popular conceptions in evolution, is birds to dinosaurs. People like Darren Naish who has six years of PHD work, still believes there is overwhelming evidence for the hypothesis. While Scientific American declared back in 2003, to give up on the bird to dinosaur hypothesis by saying…
“Creationists and other evolutionary skeptics have long pointed to feathers as a favorite example of the insufficiency of evolutionary theory. There were no transitional forms between scales and feathers, they argued.”
It is important for Christians to understand how the evolutionary framework is conceptualized when it comes to various discoveries and the hype from the liberal media that goes with it. As I previously stated, a mere fact in some similarities which is commonly used, doesn’t scientifically prove species evolving into one species and then turning another.
In Nature, it stated…
“Sinornithosaurus millenii, which indicate that they are compound structures composed of multiple filaments. Furthermore, these appendages exhibit two types of branching structure that are unique to avian feathers: filaments joined in a basal tuft, and filaments joined at their bases in series along a central filament. Combined with the independent phylogenetic evidence supporting the theropod ancestry of birds.”
Feathers have been difficult to explain by evolutionists on how something like that could evolve naturally instead of being designed. As science progresses and we study birds more closely, the evidence for bird to dinosaur evolution is not there.
There is a reason why there is nothing in the fossil record that shows scales to feathers in animals. A new discovery was found and reported in science daily
“Researchers at Oregon State University have made a fundamental new discovery about how birds breathe and have a lung capacity that allows for flight – and the finding means it’s unlikely that birds descended from any known theropod dinosaurs.”
Devon Quick mentions an interesting observation. Fundamental bird physiology had not been realized before. More like totally neglected, more like into the hype about trying to find feathers on Dino as an easier way to try and prove the link.
“Warm-blooded birds need about 20 times more oxygen than cold-blooded reptiles, and have evolved a unique lung structure that allows for a high rate of gas exchange and high activity level. Their unusual thigh complex is what helps support the lung and prevent its collapse.”
Those like Darren Naish and the media who like to hype the bird to dinosaur supposed link…
“For one thing, birds are found earlier in the fossil record than the dinosaurs they are supposed to have descended from,” Ruben said. “That’s a pretty serious problem, and there are other inconsistencies with the bird-from-dinosaur theories.”
The evidence is overwhelming, dinosaurs did not evolve from birds which is in agreement with the Bible as all animals breed within their own kind but show variants within a species.
