The worst argument against a Archaeopteryx
I remember the one day my dad and I had a debate on 9/11 being a inside job. However the debate went to the fact that geocentrism is true because the bible says so then went to evolution. When I showed him archeopteryx he tried to dismiss it by saying it was a painting. When he realized it wasn't I told him its theropod traits like the fact archaeopteryx is a land dwelling bird with the neck at the back of the head instead of the base like other non aquatic birds. He then went to say "well it just broke its neck." FacepalmFacepalmFacepalmFacepalmFacepalmFacepalm Never again will a hear such a horrible argument against a fossil EVER!!!!!!

Rigormortis is the reason the neck looks "broken"; as the muscles contract they pull on the head and neck.

Its not that he said the neck is broken, but he said that the neck broke from the base of the head and then attached its self magically to the back of the head, 7 times.Facepalm
