is especially 'galled'
by assertions that a wide variety of dinosaurs definitely wore feathers.
He says "This is just a damned lie. There is not one undisputed example
of a dinosaur with feathers.(theropods).
None. The public deserves to know this. Anyone who presents this as fact
is engaging in sensationalistic unsubstantiated tabloid journalism."

addition, where these specimens

these structures are actually feathers!

Philip Currie, Royal Tyrrell
Museum in Drumheller, Alberta, Canada, has also taken a leading role in
promoting the theropod theory.
Currie has no answer for the ornithologist's
rejection of ground up flight development, simply saying."we
know theropods wore feathers and were clearly ground dwellers.".Like

one thing, you can't be your own grandmother, meaning archaeopteryx,
which the fossil record shows to be a fully formed bird with clearly defined
feathers, appeared during the Jurassic period,
80 million years before the theropods that are supposed to be the ancestors
of birds. To sustain their theory, theropod supporters have to throw out
the geologic record".he

also argues that the heavy tail, militates
against dinosaurs becoming flying creatures.(not
to mention the differences birds and all species have with their unique
complex systems which had to exist from the beginning, or none of them
would be here).."Combined
with the theropods shortened arms, it's the worst possible body form for
flight", Feduccia says.."The
dinosaur theorists want to believe that flight started from the ground
up. However the surrounding stained areas.(of
as protofeathers, have none of the clear feather characteristics found
with archaeopteryx and the hair like filaments that accompany some fossils
come from beneath the skin. I can duplicate the effect by skinning the
tail of a modern lizard."
As for the fossil record,
which shows fully developed birds preceding
theropods by millions of years, Currie replied."The
fossil record is still incomplete. If we get lucky, maybe we will find

ideas come out."
University of California
law professor Phillip Johnson says "Theropodists
fight so hard because they see themselves as defending the evolutionary
faith. In recent years the theory of evolution has sustained a lot of damage.
Scientists have learned that the quickest way to build a career is to develop
a theory that seems to solidify evolutionary theory. Even dodgy inferences
are rewarded if the scientific community believes they support the prevailing.paradigm.
The theropod theory is now fast becoming one of the grander scientific
hoaxes of our age, the paleontological equivalent
of cold fusion.
