Birdosaurus

In light of new events it seems that the most likely demise of the dinosaurs was the evolution of the birds. There has been some new findings that backs this up, but we will start with the older findings first. Dinosaurs have been unearthed in China which seem to be, at least in part, covered with some feathers. These feathers were believed to have been some form of insulation and they were believed to have been colored. Coloration is only important in that it allows for both, color selection of the visible light spectrum and the eye/brain, and sexual selection for the most brightly colored individuals. Neither are points to dwell on here.

Feathered features acting like insulation could have evolved into feather-covered dinosaurs and the prelude to flight. This much has been speculated for a considerable time now. Old news! If this was not evidence enough for some to speculate that dinosaurs evolved into birds, then check out these extra findings. Recently, a tyrannosaurs was discovered and a bone was analysed. The bone (a femur) has been proven to belong to a female of the species as the bone was Medullary in nature. This means that this dinosaur formed extra bone matter during pregnancy which is common in birds. Mary Schweitzer

Next we have the manipulation of DNA, specifically, in chickens, which have grown different beaks and in one case longer fibulas in their lower legs. Genes determine the rate of growth in bones and these bones evolved to be shortened in birds/chickens. Shutting off the gene called IHH or Indian Hedgehog caused the bone to grow the full length again. The chicken developed long tubular fibulas like a dinosaur.

It has been argued by creationist that evolution is powerless to transform species. Commonly stated, is the argument that a mosquito is still a mosquito even if they are different species of mosquito. They still look like a mosquito; therefore, evolution is not the answer without divine guidance. When you can grow dinosaur features in a chicken by manipulating a gene, trace medullary bones in fossils and associate the same process with the bird family, along with finding feathers on dinosaur fossils, I would ask how much proof is needed to accept species change? Here, apparently, dinosaurs have changed enough in size, shape, and adaption to pass as birds.
