Microraptor Controversy

Microraptor by durbed

News to Note for March 17, 2012, by Elizabeth Mitchell from Answers in Genesis, has an interesting article called, “Glossy black flirt by any other name is still a bird.” It is about the Microraptor that was discovered in China. It is supposedly a “four-winged” Microraptor from the Liaoning Providence. As usual, the evolutionist are claiming that it is a transitional species that is between the dinosaur and the birds. They have found the bird to have had the “iridescent black feathers of modern birds.”

As Christians that believe the Biblical account of creation, it is impossible that that can be true. God said that the birds were created on day five and than the land animals were created on day six.

Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” So the evening and the morning were the fifth day. Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. … So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” (Genesis 1:20-25, 31b NKJV)

Four-winged Microraptor

“God created “every winged bird according to its kind” (Genesis 1:21) on the fifth day of Creation week. He said, “Let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens” (Genesis 1:20). The next day, God made each “beast of the earth, each according to its kind” (Genesis 1:24), including dinosaurs. Birds fully equipped to fly were flying the day before dinosaurs were even created.”

“Dinosaurs did not evolve into birds. Many anatomical differences between them make such a transition impossible. No genetic mechanism enabling an organism to acquire information to evolve into a completely new kind has ever been found. No evidence of feather evolution has been found in the fossil record or in this study. But thanks to this study, artists painting pictures of the world God made about 6,000 years ago can be reasonably confident as they make these birds shine in the sunlight of that first world.”
