Flightless Birds Are Not Proof of Evolution

Joel Kontinen

Emus and other flightless birds are not proofs of evolution, as their change has gone into the wrong direction. They have lost a skill 8the ability to fly) that their ancestors once had.

Darwinian evolution would need diametrically different changes. A creature that was previously unable to fly should evolve the ability to fly. This has only happened in Darwinian storytelling but not in the real world.
