Microraptor — Another Extinct Bird

When I was in town with Hammond Suisse and Roland Meadows, we encountered Rusty Swingset and Cliff Swallows. It was a mite surprising to the three of us to see both leaders of the Darwin Ranch at the same time. They were all a-twitter about a Microraptor.

It is uncommon for a fossilized critter to have identifiable stomach contents, and this time it was a mammal foot. There is not much to go on to determine its eating habits, however, and there was a variety of foods.

Darwinists were all excited about finding food remains in a Microraptor fossil. This thing is billed as a dino-bird, but it is just an extinct bird.

Although it came from China, it is not a fraud like ArchaeoraptorMicroraptor is a genus, but there are disputes among paleontologists. Some do not buy into the dino-bird thing. Also, evolutionists cannot account for the origin of feathers, let alone, flight feathers... Many factors to consider when they tell their tales.

Something else to keep in mind is Archaeopteryx, which was a true bird despite futile attempts to portray it as a link between dinosaurs and birds. Mikey had a few things in common with Archie, and one is that neither demonstrates evolution. While Darwin's acolytes are trying to find an "evolutionary advantage" to practically everything (including its possible black plumage), they will not consider the fact that the Creator has his own purposes.

The recent claim of a nearly half-inch mammal foot in the stomach of a ‘dinosaur’ is tainted by evolutionary dogma. The fossil foot of the mouse-sized mammal is real enough, but the assertion that Microraptor is a dinosaur is more controversial. . . .

Microraptor is famous because it has feathers on all four limbs. Over 300 specimens have been found in the Jiufotang Formation in Liaoning Province in northeastern China since the early 2000s. Other Microraptor specimens have been found with fish, lizard, and bird remains in their gut regions, too, indicating they ate a variety of animals. However, the fossils do not make it clear if Microraptor was exclusively a scavenger, a predator, or an opportunistic eater.
