The evolutionist claim seeking to depict Archaeopteryx as a transitional form is based on the supposition that birds evolved from dinosaurs. However, Professor Alan Feduccia of the University of North Carolina, one of the world’s leading ornithologists—despite being an evolutionist himself—absolutely opposes the theory that birds are related to dinosaurs:
Well, I’ve studied bird skulls for 25 years and I don’t see any similarities whatsoever. I just don’t see it. . . . The theropod origins of birds, in my opinion, will be the greatest embarrassment of paleontology of the 20th century. 163
