That's only in the one thread that has happened. I typically don't post many links. I have posted a few that are legitimate, except the ones you all saw in the one thread. Again, I don't like posting threads from the internet because you can find just about anything on the internet and a lot of it is crap. I like referencing actual published material, yet even so, there's a lot of crap that has been published as well. But at least it's a little more scrutinized when in published book form.
Either way, are you two completely inept to do research for yourselves and look up this stuff?? Go to creationists sites and you can find information on the bird skeletons. Here are a few sites. Look on them and see what you find:
(Kent Hovind is more controversial than others and doesn't conform to not using old arguments, unfortunately)
Kent Hovind, if I'm not mistaken, actually has quite a bit of pictures in his presentations and I want to say that he has the skeleton photos side by side. I suppose, if you wanted, though, you could look up the photos of the skeletons yourselves. Look up a pterosaur skeleton photo and a blue herin or a crane bone photo... shouldn't be hard to fine. Honestly, I hate referencing stuff. Drives me crazy. That's why those links I posted to you had things in them I didn't read, because I scan through the references and post them quickly if they have a piece that substantiates what I'm looking for. I am too lazy to read through them all (and don't have the time, honestly).
I'm no speed reader and I don't have the time to do all that reading just to prove someone right or wrong. It's not about proving right or wrong, it's about showing truth and spreading more information for people to learn so they can make more educated choices on their beliefs. I force nothing on anyone. Just share my experience and the things I've learned. I am constantly reading books or doing research into things or learning something new. I have a drive for learning new things constantly, and I spend hours each day doing it. My business is such that if I were to average it out over a year, I would probably only do three days of work a week. So, I have a sweet business that allows me a lot of time to do other things like research and learn new stuff, which is my passion.
Learn to find some of this stuff on your own and stop asking me for it, because I really hate looking for this stuff. Some of it's easy to find and some of it's not so easy. But that's how the life of a researcher is. Constantly digging through things to find information and truth. Any good researcher will tell you that it's TONS of reading and research. My wife is a research coordinator and Ph.D. student and she has to do TONS of reading and research on just one tiny subject for years. Constantly searching, constantly testing, constantly learning and building on what they already know. She and I are a lot alike in our passion for learning and research.
I'd do well to actually write down references in a journal when I find them during my research, but I don't have a good system for that yet, unfortunately.
Oh well... Maybe someday...
