Evolutionists are calling it a feathered dinosaur, but Creation Moments strongly disagrees. Find out why on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
A new species of dinosaur has been found. Scientists are calling Changyuraptor yangi the biggest feathered dinosaur ever discovered. Here at Creation Moments, however, we’re calling it a feathered bird.
For one thing, dinosaurs and other reptiles have scales, which are folds in their skin. Birds, on the other hand, have feathers which grow out of follicles. Scales and feathers are completely different. No known fossils, in fact, provide evidence of a transition from scales to feathers. Furthermore, for a dinosaur to evolve into a bird, it would need to develop hollow bones, and it would need to gain powerful flight muscles and develop a new heart with four chambers rather than three.
When you consider the actual fossil record, dinosaur-to-bird evolution is nothing more than a flight of fancy.
