The Puzzle of Flightless Birds

Both biblical creationists and the disciples of Darwin need to explain the source of flightlessness in some birds. Some evolutionists have the paralogical remark that birds "acquired" flightlessness. Sure, pard, and millions of people acquired unemployment because of COVID-19 shutdowns.

Evolutionists tell stories that some birds lost the ability to fly due to the secular miracle of convergent evolution. They even claim that loss of traits is evidence for their beliefs.

Many of us are aware of the ostrich, kiwi, greater rhea, and other birds that don't seem to care that they are not airborne. There are many of them in diverse places. Darwinists evosplain this through the secular miracle of convergent evolution — which means they don't have a clue. Interesting that evolution is supposed to go from simple to complex, but they claim loss of traits is evolution as well. Strange.

It's acknowledged that losing the ability to fly is not too difficult, but evolutionists are not only confounded by the origin of flight itself, but going down Mexico way, the tinamou reminds them that they have to explain how it regained the ability to fly. The evidence from genetic switches supports the work of the Master Engineer, who apparently front-loaded critters with abilities to be turned off and on when their environments needed them — or not.
Some organisms in nature have lost an organ or the ability to use an organ. This is commonly observed in insects that have lost their wings on islands and blind cave fish.

The origin of flightless birds, especially those found on islands, is also a challenge because evolutionists believe it is a form of evolution. Flightless birds are known from Madagascar, Australia, New Zealand, islands of the south-west Pacific, South America, and elsewhere. Many of these birds went extinct during the past 2,000 years, likely because of human hunting. . . . Moreover, Feduccia, an evolutionary ornithologist, notes that there are or were flightless birds on numerous islands across the South Pacific—at least one flightless species on almost every large island, including the remote Hawaiian Islands.
