The 'Missing Link' is still missing

The Archaeopteryx has for 150 years been touted as being "The missing link" that 'proves' evolution.


Because for 150 years it has been said to be part bird and part dinosaur.

And schoolchildren have been taught for decades that dinosaurs evolved into birds.

By the way, those who really believe that dinosaurs evolved into birds will be happy to know that there is some really great ocean view property in Iowa for sale.

But, alas, schoolchildren, teachers, scientists, textbook writers,TV and Movie producers, advertisers, and a host of others who expound this idea that dinosaurs turned into birds will be saddened by the recent announcement.
