The fossil record does not reveal an evolutionary progression in feather development, nor does it reveal transitional animals that are part bird and part dinosaur. No scientific observations have ever shown a way that dinosaurs could acquire the genetic information to make the dramatic changes that would have been necessary to evolve into birds.
Since no definitive dinosaurs with feathers have appeared in the fossil record—only dinosaurs with fuzzy-looking collagen fibers that do not qualify in any way as transitional feathers—many evolutionists seeking to explain the evolution of feathers would like to find transitional evolutionary forms. Microraptor did not help their case.
Nothing in the Bible precludes the erstwhile existence of feathered dinosaurs. What the Bible does indicate is that if feathered dinosaurs were to have existed, they would have been created with feathers; they did not evolve from reptilian scales, which are quite different.
David Menton refutes the false notion that dinosaurs evolved into birds.
Do four-winged Cretaceous birds confirm dinosaurs’ role in the evolution of flight?
Popular paleo-blogger calls evolutionists who reject feathered dinosaurs “misguided.”
Gigantic dinosaur reportedly has fossilized feathers, but don’t look too closely.

“[M]ore evidence that birds did not descend from ground-dwelling theropod dinosaurs”: research from Oregon State University, home to evolutionists who reject the dinosaur-to-bird evolution tale.
Paleontologists have recovered fossilized melanosomes (which are responsible for pigmentation in skin, fur, and feathers) from ancient birds and dinosaurs.
If alligator lungs are like bird lungs, and dinosaur lungs were like alligator lungs, does that mean birds evolved from dinosaurs?
Oregon State University scientists have released a new study debunking the alleged evolution of dinosaurs into birds.
Chinese paleontologists have discovered another “feathered dinosaur.” So how should we interpret it: a “feathered” dinosaur or a feathered “dinosaur”?
A dinosaur unearthed in Argentina could be the latest evidence for a dino–bird connection, paleontologists report.
Dubbed “the dawn of the Confucius bird,” a new bird fossil discovered in China is said to be from the time of the dinosaurs but is remarkably well preserved.
Bumps on the forearm bone of a velociraptor fossil are creating considerable excitement for advocates of the dinosaurs-to-birds hypothesis.
A tiny Mongolian dinosaur is wreaking havoc on evolutionists’ traditional ideas of how flight (and birds) evolved.
Dinosaur youths may have mated before physically mature, according to some scientists.
Are the media’s renderings of Gigantoraptor as a proto-bird the product of evidence—or of gigantic imagination?
A key fossil said to uphold that dino-to-bird link is under attack.
The New York Times has summarized an upcoming article in the journal 'Nature' that claims that a fossil dinosaur—supposedly with 'clear traces of feathers from head to tail'—has been found in China.
As more evidence of altered fossils begins to surface, one must seriously question the integrity of the fossil industry and the stories these fossils are supposed to tell.
A letter from Storrs L. Olson to Dr. Peter Raven about dinosaur to bird evolution.
Recently, some researchers in China reported on a fossil, given the name Sinornithosaurus millenii.
Many news agencies have reported on two fossils found in Northern China that are claimed to be feathered theropods (meat-eating dinosaurs).
The international media reported on March 18 that scientists unearthed fossil evidence that birds evolved from dinosaurs.
This latest “missing link” is based on more than 20 fragments of leg, rib and shoulder bones found in the Patagonia region of Argentina.
Like most paleontologists, however, Martin awaits a detailed report on the new find. ‘The possibility for having egg on the face is tremendous at this point.
“The fossil find of the century—the first dinosaur with feathers, a possible fore-runner to flying birds—has reportedly been discovered in China.” We need to wait and see the scientific paper.
