A Bird with Teeth?


Part 3



This is Ken Ham, inviting you to visit the popular Ark Encounter in Northern Kentucky.


One of the most famous fossils is Archaeopteryx. It had teeth, a bony tail, and claws on its wings. Evolutionists have argued about what it was. Sometimes it’s considered a dinosaur, other times it’s a bird. And other times it’s a missing link! So which was it?

Well, Genesis tells us God created the flying creatures on day five—and that each kind reproduces according to its kind. So we know this creature is not a missing link.

And when we study Archaeopteryx, we see it has bird features such as feathers. But what about the teeth, bony tail, and claws? Well, many extinct birds had these features. It was a bird!
