No, I won the debate. Not having a reversed hallux is an excellent characteristic of a transitional fossil. It will not have ALL avian characteristics. You know what we call animals that have only avian traits? Birds. You truly are intent on illustrating that you have no clue about what would constitute a transitional species.<quoted text>
You have already lost this debate Subby. Arch does not have a reversed hallux which was around 212mya and before arch.
Hence, as I said, you can wiggle and struggle and present anything you like and it will not be and cannot be an intermediate because modern birds were already here before arch and I have the dated footprints to support that claim. You have a mythical theropod. It is really that simple.
When you come up with something other than just "bird like" foot prints then you might have a claim. Until then, you lose.
