There's supposed to be dinosaurs and birds, not ones with characteristics of both. That's an outrage of Biblical proportions! Didn't they (as well as some neat more-bird/more-dinosaur species dug up in China just a little while ago, both small and "Oh my God! It's a birdinosaur! Run!"-sized) realize that they were maligning His plan for no-evolution?
"What's the deal with archaeopteryx? It's not a bird, and it's not a dinosaur...could someone explain this...to me?" ~ Jerry Seinfeld
A book on my Christmas list, but one I will probably have to buy for myself, is the just-published authoritative (256 pages) tome by Peter Wellnhofer: Archaeopteryx: Der Urvogel von Solnhofen. It will be available in English next year sometime.What is the deal with Archaeopteryx? Evolution is the deal, like it or not.
