It seems like this is a text book example of argumentum ad populum. It is fallacious reasoning, is what I am trying to say.
I did not say the scientists who support evolution are right because they are many.
My response was to yours: "no scientific backing".
I don't see any similar features between an ostrich and a T Rex.
Fossils only document the existence of now-extinct past species....to determine anything beyond that is speculation.
Here an illustration of Archaeopteryx lithographica chasing a juvenile compsognathid (Compsognathus longipes) through Late Jurassic Germany at night.
and here a bird:
Here a fossil of Archaeopteryx lithographica which is currently displayed at the Museum fÃ¼r Naturkunde in Berlin.
"Birds share many unique skeletal features with dinosaurs. Moreover, fossils of more than thirty species of non-avian dinosaur have been collected with preserved feathers. There are even very small dinosaurs, such as Microraptor and Anchiornis, which have long, vaned, arm and leg feathers forming wings. The Jurassic basal avialan Pedopenna also shows these long foot feathers. Witmer in 2009 concluded that this evidence is sufficient to demonstrate that avian evolution went through a four-winged stage. Fossil evidence also demonstrates that birds and dinosaurs shared features such as hollow, pneumatized bones, gastroliths in the digestive system, nest-building and brooding behaviors."
Q: What is this dear sir from the above image; a reptile, bird, mammal?
Lays eggs like birds and reptiles.
Has a tail like a beaver(which is a mammel).
It has a beak just like birds.
It is otter-footed.
It has a neocortex (a region of the brain), hair, three middle ear bones, and mammary glands. It nurses their young with milk, secreted from the mammary glands.
Q: What kind does it belong to, huh?
What does these "small scale" observations have to do with the idea that a reptile evolved into a bird? Oh, I get it...small changes lead to big changes over time, right?
Q: What stops the small changes to become bigger ones when we are talking about such big time frames?
Please describe the mechanism that must be in place in order for small changes(micro-evolution) to not lead up to large changes(macro-evolution).Â
I am not saying anything is wrong with circumstantial evidence..I am saying that I just don't see any circumstantial evidence as it relates to macroevolution.
Chimpanzees have 48 chromosomes and humans have 46.
The difference in chromosome numbers must be explained. It was initially rather puzzling to scientists based on the common ancestry of these two species, and so this led to the hypothesis of chromosomal fusion in the lineage that led to modern humans.
Genetic evidence shows clearly that while orangutans, gorillas, chimpanzees, and bonobos have 24 chromosome pairs, humans and our closest extinct ancestors (Neanderthals and Denisovans) have 23.

So please address this process.
Q: How does intelligent design and/or creationism explain the difference in chromosome number in orangutans, gorillas, chimpanzees, and bonobos and modern humans, Neanderthals and Denisovans?
The is an abundance of evidence that human chromosome 2 is the result of a telomere-to-telomere fusion of two ancestral chromosomes. This event did not occur in our closest ancestors, hence we have one less chromosome pair. In fact the sequence of human chromosome 2 contains the relic of an ancestral telomere-telomere fusion.

I thought science was supposed to be based on observation? No?
Dear sir humans cannot observed a process that take millions of years because humans only live few decades.
Q: How is this so difficult, huh?
Well, the creation of the world was a one-time event in history...so if you blinked, you missed it LOL.
Yeah but your point was that "macro"-evolution it is a scam because no human has observed it in real time.
But if we followed your logic so the supposed creation of the universe by Yahweh it's a scam because was never observed in real time by any humans.
Therefore you should believe Yahweh creating the universe it's a scam too to be logically consistent.
But since you do not you are just babbling nonsense and being illogical.
