I read one hilarious theory...How and Why Did Wings Evolve?

Wings evolved because bipedal animals were leaping into the air; large wings assisted leaping. (This is possible; any amount of wing could assist leaping..

Yeah right...lets see now take myself as test subject..my DNA has a board meeting with the aerodynamics engineering department. Hey guys Fordtrucks has been leaping on the road quite a bit lately. Lets help the poor guy out. Voila fordtrucks now has turbocharged jet thrusters on his arms. Yahoo...i can fly like superman!!!

unbelievable...I think I would give more credence to santa claus being real!!!

#1 Argument from incredulity is a logical fallacy.


#2 Evolution is a documented and observed fact. If you want to argue micro vs. macro evolution or even speciation, that's fine. To argue against evolution in a general sense is ridiculous, however.

Where did I ever claim either:


I was an intellectual




-OR-




I could explain the origin of flight




Please quote my post(s) or admit that you're simply making things up out of thin air.






Then, in this post I quoted you doubled-down on Argument from Incredulity and completely avoided responding to my comment about observed evolution. Your parents must be so proud...
