This is Ken Ham, coauthor of the eye-opening book on Noah’s Food, A Flood of Evidence.


As we’ve seen this week, evolutionists believe dinosaurs evolved into birds. In their worldview, scales must’ve, by chance, evolved into feathers. But how?

You see, feathers grow from individual tube-like follicles in the skin. But reptile scales are all connected, like a big sheet over the whole body.

Feathers are grown and shed in matched pairs. But scales are shed all together.

Feathers are very complex. They’ve a branching structure, interlocking barbs, and tiny hinged “hooklets.” But scales are relatively simple folds in the skin.

Feathers and scales are very different. One didn’t evolve from the other—it’s impossible!
