The jury is still out on that one. The idea that birds evolved from reptiles is gaining ground as fossil records grow.

Take a look at body structure next time you buy a whole chicken. Looks like a mini-me T-Rex, right?

yeah, don't believe things suddenly sprouted wings & became birds, else we'd all be flying by now;
fossils could be the mutations which righted themselves after

So you don't believe fish would just walk on land?You dn't believe single celled organism can unite to form a multi celled organism?You don't believe a bunch of reptiles would suddenly grow big and become dinosaurs or change the front lobs into wings and become pterosaurs,or transform the limbs into fins and become pilosaurs,plesiosaurs,ichyosau rs?Then tell me where in the world does these things all come from?

It's simple we don't need wings to adapt to the environment.

I'm not buying until you have something called EVIDENCE.

beliefs don't need evidence that's the beauty of them :)
evidence is only something you can physically point to & claim a connection for for what you already believe.
we're all living under the delusion that what we cite as evidence means something - it doesn't, only our interpretation of it gives it meaning

Beliefs don't need evidence that shows how unreliable they are.
Evidence is like what you said,except that they make something more reliable,more believable as long as there is evidence to support a claim,that claim will be taken seriously.
Interpretation(if I understand correctly,I'm not that good in English) is your explaination,an explaination,JUST an explaination makes it a theory,something that maybe right but may be wrong,it's the evidence that makes a theory a fact.

Nothing sudden about evolution, dude. Evolving is a slow process with sudden leaps forward, but not a sudden change of the evolving species.

[take your time and think about it,... take a lot of time, lol]
