Unidentified Humming Bird 2
- Features unique to birds include flow through lungs to not change their aerodynamics
as they breathe; hollow bones with struts for lightness and strength; flight feathers
, absent with a few exceptions from non flight
birds, with offset quills and barbs to hold the feather together for aerodynamics; a special part of their brain to
control flight; a wishbone; and a keeled sternum necessary to attach strong flight muscles. Bird legs bend
only at the knee as compared to theropod reptiles whose mobility depends on their femurs. 
Creation - "And God created... every winged bird after its kind" (Genesis 1:21). The above characteristics
are so radically different from reptiles that evolution from reptiles to birds is very unlikely to impossible . Some
purported dinosaurs having possibly bird-like features such as feathers and wishbones may actually be birds.
- Macroevolution is said generally by evolutionists to be too slow to be observed and in fact has not been observed.
Observation is an essential requirement of the scientific method to prove a hypothesis. As macroevolution cannot
be observed, hypotheses that birds have evolved from theropods or other reptiles and other macroevolution hypotheses must
of necessity rely on many assumptions (guesses) such as naturalism, gradual progression, series, similarity, amount of variability,
vestigial, natural selection, mutations (almost universally or universally harmful) 
; some of these asssumptions are
discussed under horse evolution
. Seeing it cannot be observed and its supposed proofs are based on assumptions which
cannot be proved, macroevolution is really a philosophy and not science.
