Duck-billed dinosaur find disproves its bird ancestry (Talk.Origins)
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
- A team from Creation Expeditions found a fossil of an Edmontosaurus hadrosaur (duck-billed dinosaur) species which they called Ezekiel. The fossil included a skin impression which showed it had no feathers as expected by evolutionists, thus disproving that hadrosaurs were bird-reptile transitional forms. Furthermore, it was buried in strata containing garfish and turtles, which evolutionists would not expect, supporting the idea that Ezekiel was a victim of the Flood.

CreationWiki agrees that this is bogus, however this claim is not used by Creation Scientists.
