So...ok...we are told that dinosaurs evolved --pretty much- into birds. OK, I get that. But, what about how many of those dinosaurs we know and love, like t-rex, and raptors of various types, having the remnance of feathers? Why?
It seems to me that those particular, afore mentioned dinosaurs are giving us the impression that they had already done gone and evolved AWAY from the need for flight. That being the case, they began to evolve away their feathers.
So then, over time, they have lost the need for flight and have these clinging, scraggles of feathers for what reason, again? But wait, then birds RE-EVOLVED the feather theng, and THIS time, made it stick!!! BUT...they had to agree to be shrunk.
I know...What is my problem?...sheesh.
