Non-Evolution of Flight

When the big picture of molecules-to-musicologist is examined, it stretches credibility. Consider that everything supposedly evolved from a common ancestor, branching off the evolutionary tree in diverse ways. It may seem reasonable on the surface because evolution's proponents claim that common features show common ancestry — and that's before they get into the far-fetched tales where speculation is presented as fact.

Evolution from common ancestry strains credulity in the first place. Examining dissimilarities among living things, and remarkable abilities of even a few birds, make evolution sound even more ridiculous.

Although there is disagreement in the evolutionary community, many believe that dinosaurs evolved into birds, but there is no mechanism or plausible model. Similarities among living things? Fine, why can't I fly? There are more differences than similarities. There are fascinating abilities among birds, such as the abilities of some species of albatross to drink sea water, the arctic tern traveling pole to pole every year, the high metabolism of the hummingbird and its ability to detect the sweet stuff it needs for survival — too many differences to make evolution believable. I reckon I don't have enough faith to believe in evolution, especially since evidence and common sense reveal the design work of the Creator.
If an award were given to the bird with the most clumsy landing, there is little doubt which bird would win—the gooney bird. In the sky this bird is powerful and beautifully graceful. By skilful use of wind currents, it can glide over the ocean for hours without even a flap of its wings. But it often makes the proverbial three-point landing—two legs down and flat on its face! It has earned the nickname ‘gooney bird’ partly because of its clumsy landings.

If landing is not the strong point of this bird—properly known as the albatross—flying certainly is. With a wingspan that may reach three metres (11 feet), the albatross can spend months flying enormous distances over the seas. It sometimes may not touch land more than a few times in four or five years. It sleeps on the surface of the ocean, it drinks sea water, and it feeds on small marine creatures and garbage thrown from ships.

Mariners have long been fascinated by the ability of some species of albatross to zigzag across a strong headwind. These graceful birds will soar and glide above a ship for days, diving steeply into the water to claim refuse from its wake. The albatross is perfectly designed for flight.
