THE CHICKEN AND THE EGG...WHAT CAME FIRST?
How was your week? Mine was busy as usual, I was a part of a worship team that did an outreach for a group of people. What a blessing that turned out to be not just for them but also for us!
I wanted to continue with the chicken and egg debate. There are just two more things I want to point out:
First is the three-fingered hand. “One of the main lines of evidence cited by evolutionists for the evolution of birds from theropod dinosaurs is the three-fingered 'hand' found in both birds and theropods. The problem is that recent studies have shown that there is a digital mismatch between birds and theropods.
Most terrestrial vertebrates have an embryological development based on the five-fingered hand. In the case of birds and theropod dinosaurs, two of the five fingers are lost (or greatly reduced) and three are retained during development of the embryo. If birds evolved from theropods, one would expect the same three fingers to be retained in both birds and theropod dinosaurs, but such is not the case. Evidence shows that the fingers retained in theropod dinosaurs are fingers 1, 2, and 3 (the “thumb” is finger 1) while the fingers retained in birds are 2, 3, and 4.”1
The second thing I would like to point out is the huge, and I mean HUGE, problem for evolutionists is the origin of flight. “The theropod type of dinosaur that is believed to have evolved into flying birds is, to say the least, poorly designed for flight. These dinosaurs have small forelimbs that typically can’t even reach their mouths. It is not clear what theropods, such as the well-known T. rex, did with their tiny front limbs. It is obvious that they didn’t walk, feed, or grasp prey with them, and they surely didn’t fly with them!
Another problem is that this bipedal type of dinosaur had a long heavy tail to balance the weight of a long neck and large head. Decorating such a creature with feathers would hardly suffice to get it off the ground or be of much benefit in any other way.”2
Changes over millions of years would just leave the half theropod, half bird inefficient, ineffective and vulnerable to attach. Survival of the fittest would have seen such an animal extinct long ago. And then we would have its fossils as evidence. Which we don’t. There are no half dino, half birds in the fossil record. Anywhere.
Another problem the evolutionists have with the origin of flight is that they believe all birds first evolved into flying birds, then through more millions of years some lost the ability to fly such as penguins and ostriches. What? Would evolution see fit (through survival) that the flightless birds would just have diverged from the main “line or branch” of evolution?
These two facts and all the other presented last week argue for a creation based origins of birds. Yet even when presented with such evidence, some people still chose to be like the ostrich and stick their heads in the sand while they flap their flightless wings to try to boost their beliefs in millions of years. Such behavior is not science, and its not logical.
God bless and take care!
This week in the night skies; “Friday, November 14 Last-quarter Moon (exact at 10:16 a.m. EST). The Moon rises around midnight tonight with Jupiter to its left (for North America.) By dawn Saturday morning the 15th, the Moon is below Regulus with Jupiter now high to their upper right.”3 For the southern lats: Evening sky looking south from Adelaide at 21:00 (9:00 pm) ACDST in South Australia, Comet C/2012 K1 PanSTARRS is above Canopus.4
