Evolution of Flight Story Crashes

Know why so many icons of evolution get put out to pasture? Because they're wrong. The hands at the Darwin Ranch aren't overmuch concerned, since they get paid for coming up with stories anyway. The latest story to go kaput is the story of how bird flight evolved as presented by Ken Dial.

An "explanation" of the evolution of flight was shot down by other evolutionists. However, they did not address all the other factors necessary in avian biology that was given by the Creator.
English Partridge In Flight by Archibald Thorburn, 1898
Dial's "explanation" (which he should have known better than to propose, what with being a pilot and all) was ludicrous from the get-go, but apparently the other ranch hands had been into the fire water, or maybe they just didn't have anything even remotely plausible that evoked evolution and excluded God the Creator. Other evolutionists discredited Dial's fantasy, but didn't seem to be interested in all the other specified complexities involved for a critter to have powered flight. Your tax dollars at work, Pilgrim.
A simplistic story about bird flight influenced a generation of evolution students, but it was wrong.

Ken Dial’s “partridge family” story on the evolution of bird flight became one of our icons of just-so storytelling when it first appeared in December 2003. His theory he called “WAIR” (wing assisted incline running) began when he watched partridge chicks hold out their arms when running uphill. Director of the Flight Laboratory at the University of Montana, Dial had visions of dinosaurs taking to the skies by holding out their wingless arms. Even though WAIR was little more than a quasi-Lamarckian heuristic conjecture, it got respectable coverage over the years in the science media mainly because there wasn’t a better theory around. Both the arboreal (tree down) and cursorial (ground up) theories had fallen out of favor by 2003. Here was a new idea to fill the void, they thought; it was better than nothing.

Flight, however, requires much more than running uphill with arms outstretched. Otherwise, humans might learn the trick without a wingsuit. A new study by Alexander Dececchi (Queen’s University) puts evolutionists back at square one by eliminating WAIR and all other contenders for good just-so stories to explain how dinosaurs learned to fly. Science Daily says that Dececchi has determined that “none of the previously predicted methods would have allowed pre-avian dinosaurs to take flight.” That includes WAIR.
