"No dinosaur has a reversed first toe (hallux), but all birds do-that's their perching foot," he adds. "All thereood dionosaurs have serrated, saber like teeth. COnfuciusornis has no teeth. EVen though Archaeopteryx does have teeth, they're not serrated, but peglike and constricted at the base. All dinosaurs have two large openings at the back of the skull. BIrds have none. POint by point, there's no connection." I've heard that the author is Alan Feduccia, I know where it is not: it is not in Science Magazine volume 199 January 20, page 284. That is only half a page and used in a citation. But it is not to be found, unless they drastically changed the article. I;ve scoured many Scinece issues and came up empty, searched google also, nada, whatever thoughts that can be given about the source please let me know Thanks Jason

It's telling that this quote is anonymous. Even neo-Darwinian evolutionsists have serious problems w/ the hypothesis (or so-called "theory"); nevertheless, the sociophilosophical dogma of macroevolution serves as an academic gag order, to silence those who would question the agnostic religion. NOTE: This quote is the cited in the 2nd most prestigious scientific journal in the world, as assesed by impact factor.
