Re: Archaeopteryx- most likely fraud, if not, still not transitional
The wonderful thing about this one is summed up by, well...
Archaeopteryx- most likely fraud, if not, still not transitional.
Yes. Those Evil Evilutionists fraudulently contrived a fossil which is not transitional and doesn't prove their point in the slightest, Because ... because ... well, because creationists like to wear belts and braces.
Sheesh. If the fossil is nothing special, why do creationists have to pretend that it's a fake? If it's a fake, why do creationists have to pretend that it's nothing special?
One falsehood would do --- couldn't they toss a coin?

But there are just as many arguments for it being just a bird or just a reptile.
I think you mean "... or just a dinosaur".
Yes, there are.
And that makes it an intermediate form, doesn't it?
This is why creationists can't decide whether they should argue whether it's a dinosaur or a bird. This is why one minute you're arguing that it has the features of a modern bird, and the next minute that it was faked out of a dinosaur skeleton. There's no way for you guys to make your minds up, because it is in fact an intermediate form.
If it really was one or the other, you guys would be able to tell us which. But you can't, can you?
The arguments for it being a bird are its bird-like features. The arguments for it being a dinosaur are its dinosaur features. It has a mix of these features. It is an intermediate form.
You can even see this in particular anatomical features. Take the pubis. Like the pubis of a bird, it points backwards. Like the pubis of a dinosaur, it has an unfused ischium and ilium. A transitional part in a transitional form.
