Perhaps they will also find out how to keep wild birds alive!

Genesis chapter 1 :20-23...says the birds and sea creatures were CREATED by God on day 5, dinosaurs, and all land dwelling animals and man were created on day 6. So it is impossible for birds to evolve from dinosaurs since they existed before the dinosaur. Also God made each species after their own kind. the fossil records say that the same birds we have today were way back then . Another thing how come the evolutionists can not agree on how long the earth took to be brought o life with all its diversity of life. some say 600 million years old, 45 million years ago, 65 million years ago..on and on it sure takes a lot of Faith to believe in evolution for they have no facts, no straight answers and most of all they were not there way back then! Now if you read Genesis chapter 5, Noah was the 1oth generation from Adam, it gives their ages when they die, add up the math, then go to the Exodus of Israel 400 years they served Egypt, then go to the book of 2nd Kings and Solomon dedicated the first Temple and mentions the number of years. Do your math problem The earth is not millions or billions of years old. It is nearing 7 000 years old.

Remember, the bible is a book, written by a human being a long long time ago. Don't you think you might want to get up to the year 2012?

Thank you Kevin, for scientific information and not hearsay.

The Bible was in fact authored by many MEN, and in part possibly plagiarized from older Sumerian texts. That which was “written” was written not by witnesses to events but by later followers relating stories they were told or made up themselves. But what rankles me most is that Constantine (would be ruler of the world) was responsible for editing during his reign. Emperor Constantine decided what would be included or excluded as cannon since he wanted the result to support his claim to being the embodiment of God on Earth.

Carol K, You live in make believe! Grow up!

I'm disapointed, I thought the article would reveal which were the first birds the others have evolved from.

Interesting. @ Carol: the Bible is full of fiction; parts of it may be true, but exaggerated, because of excitement by men.
