Naturalis Historia: The Dangers of Poor Scholarship: A Creationists’ Take on Feathered Dinosaurs

Naturalis Historia: The Dangers of Poor Scholarship: A Creationists’ Take on Feathered Dinosaurs

Every month seems to bring a report of a new fossil from the Jurassic or Cretaceous period rocks that display some form of feathers. This deluge of new fossil finds will not end soon as there are as many fossils under preparation for publication as there are already published. Just taking into account the fossils already revealed to the world it has become increasing evident that many types of dinosaurs had some form of feathers even if they were not covered by feathery plumage. Young earth creationists have reacted instinctively to each new fossil by attempting to neatly categorize them as either dinosaurs or birds but have found themselves at odds with each other about how to sort these fossils into separate “kinds.”

Those feathered Dinosaurs seem dreadfully interesting, but the Six-Day Creationists just can't stand them.
