I was browsing a creationist archive on articles tackling the bird-dinosaur controversy, and noticed many of their titles were riddled with puns about wings, powered flight and birds in general. I thought they were amusing (in an at-their-expense kind of way):

~Which came first, the dino or the bird?

~Dino-bird evolution falls flat.

~Bird Evolution flies out the window.

~Kentucky fried dinosaur?

~Yet another flap about dino-to-bird evolution.

~Eggceptionally different.

~Ostrich eggs break dino-to-bird theory.

Humor aside, it honestly disgusts me how ignorant all of these creationists are who write these articles; capitalizing on that damn "Archaeoraptor" hoax and acting like paleontologists have yet to find actual evidence of feathered dinosaurs. What bird-brains!

What bird-brains!

And now that's an offence to birds! Everyone knows that an average corvid is more intelligent than average creationist. :lol:

Anyway, it would have been actually funny, if it wasn't so sad. The stubbornness of some people denying to accept simple facts never cease to amaze me. In my opinion it's better to stay away from such hard-core creationists, and leave them to live in their imaginary world. It saves a lot of headaches. :)

And this is why I have trouble telling if you're YEC or not. You claim to be one, but then you post stuff like this that I've only heard elsewhere from fellow evolutionists.

I didn't think making fun of lame puns made me less creationist.

It's so funny how they spout claims about Archaeopteryx being "pure bird" and Microraptor being "pure dinosaur," yet they'd probably be incapable of telling skeletons of the two apart.

Yeah, I'd really like to show Ken Ham two unlabeled fossils--one of Archaeopteryx, the other of Microraptor--and see if he can distinguish the two. Come to think of it, i'd also like to see what a creationist reconstruction of Microraptor or Anchiornis would look like. :|

I got curious, so I googled "creation science Microraptor" to see what I could find. It was pretty disappointing. There was no actual challenge to the scientific reconstruction of Microraptor, mainly just the tired excuse that dinosaurs had filaments and only birds (Caudipteryx, Microraptor, Archeopteryx) had feathers. I get the feeling they wouldn't want to see Microraptor's skeleton compared to Sinornithosaurus's.

Aww, but expected; most creationists are dodgy like that.
