Remember those charts from school detailing how birds evolved from dinosaurs? It turns out those are false:
ScienceDaily (June 9, 2009) — 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.
The conclusions add to other evolving evidence that may finally force many paleontologists to reconsider their long-held belief that modern birds are the direct descendants of ancient, meat-eating dinosaurs, OSU researchers say.
Those (in)famous charts turn out to be bogus — if any proof existed for them they wouldn’t find out later it’s completely wrong. Evolution lacks proof, and the textbooks presenting those charts of fish growing legs, birds from dinosaurs, and horses evolving are only hypothesis (guesses) — they don’t have proof.
This new discovery demonstrates a major oops in evolution — an error preached for decades as gospel truth. Why was it ever presented as anything more than a guess? Where is the scientific (repeatable, experimental data) evidence for evolutionary principles?
- Matter comes from nothing.
- Non-living material can spontaneously become alive.
- Species can change from one to another.
- Explosions produce order.
If any of those turn out to be false, evolution falls to the scrap heap. Yet they’ve all been assumed, simply because they’re required for evolution to occur. But that’s not science.
We’re posed this question for years, and have yet to see scientific data for them — remember the scientific method involves repeatable, experimental data. If you don’t have that, it’s not science — by definition.
