of birds from reptiles. "Birds and their alleged dinosaurial ancestors,
however, have been found to have coexisted." ... Duane T. Gish,-Evolution:
The Fossils Say No, (1995). Archaeopteryx is sometimes
called a hoax. Archaeopteryx is not
a hoax, but it is not a transitional fossil either, except in the minds
of those possessing an extremely fertile imagination. It is rather, just
a bird! Archaeopteryx also did not have reptile like teeth, but rather,
uniquely bird like teeth, similar to teeth found in other fossil birds,
that of, unserrated (not notched on the edge like a saw) teeth in constricted
bases and expanded roots.
Journal, (1993), page 259, "Archaeopteryx probably
can't tell us much about the origin of feathers and flight in true protobirds
(proto is Greek for 'first in time'), because archaeopteryx was in a modern
sense, a bird."
of frogs, snakes, etc. is different
from birds. Archaeopteryx appears abruptly
in the fossil record, with fully formed wings and feathers in a design
common in birds we see today. An evolutionary
expert in statistical probability, Pierre Lecomte du Nouy in Human
Destiny (1947), Longmaus, Green and Co., New York,
"We are not even authorized to consider the exceptional case of Archaeopteryx
as a true link. By link, we mean a necessary stage of transition between
classes such as reptiles and birds, or between smaller groups. An
animal displaying characters belonging to two different groups cannot be
treated as a true link as long as the intermediary stages have not been
found, and as long as the mechanisms of transition remain unknown." Newsweek

evolutionists at a Chicago conference "Evidence from fossils now points
overwhelmingly away from the classical Darwinism which most Americans learned
in high school."

on swans are very similar to those of Archaeopteryx." ... Darwin's

mates and cares for offspring; humans got eyes, legs, a nose, ears, we

avoid considering quantitative-scientific-
evidence. In addition, some of these 'scientific' evolutionists infer
behavior from observing anatomy,
which has proved perilous – if it walks upright like a man, has
a mouth like a man, behaves like a man in many aspects,
then man must have sprung from it. Such is the pseudo
scientists' reasonings. Hey! That's as bad as inferring that since
a cruise ship has a propellor, and so
also does a bacterial flagellum, the ship probably evolved from the
Nature provides such diversity. Not
all fish have teeth. Some amphibians have them. Some don't. Most mammals
have teeth, but not all. Some reptiles have short tails. Others long.

"Geologist Paul Colinvaux of

cores from Amazonian lakes showed that the nearby tropical rainforest has

Basically, the well known yet baffling
worldwide subtropical climatic evidence (rocks)-alludes
to conditions prior to the great flood, set in motion by the then prevalent
atmospheric conditions enabling the trapping of solar radiation -Genesis
Once this ancient greenhouse effect
was dissipated, worldwide climate
became drastically altered. Atmospheric circulation began then and ice
caps at the poles formed. The world's weather was never the same again.
