I used a statistical technique called classic multidimensional scaling, which creation scientists use to quantify morphological gaps between species. I wanted to determine whether morphological gaps separated Archaeopteryx - the earliest known bird - from the various non-avian coelurosaurs, the group of predatory dinosaurs ranging from tiny Microraptor to giant T. rex. I showed that within this group there is too much similarity to indicate separate baramins. Contrary to the previous creationist view that these animals were separately created, their own pet technique shows that these animals shared a common ancestor (Journal of Evolutionary Biology, vol 23, p 1732)
Creationists believe different "kinds" of organisms - "baramins" - were created separately about 6000 years ago. They accept that diversification has taken place within each baramin and have methods for determining whether different species belong to different baramins, by finding morphological gaps between species, or large differences in genes or molecules.
the information in that would fill a book a 1000 pages long if there were a 1000 words on each page, there are no mistakes in this information and yet i'm told to believe that it came about by mistake.

What similarities is he comparing other than bones? There is no DNA to compare. And even if there was, "morphology" is not proof of anything. My Buick's wheels fit my Monte Carlo. All this proves is that they had a common designer, not that they evolved from a "car like" vehicle 10 million years ago. I guess we can take observable reality and make up stories about unobservable realities that exist only in the imagination now? Is this what science has sunk to... for shame
