Birds are Evolved Dinosaurs?

In an online article summarizing Dr. Carl Werner's work, "Living Fossils, Evolution the Grand Experiment, Vol. 2", Dr. Werner shows that it was impossible for dinosaurs to evolve into modern birds when the very birds that dinosaurs were supposed to evolve into are found in the same sedimentary layers of the dinosaurs with essentially the same morphology.  The following are quotes from the linked article.

Many modern animals in dinosaur rock:

So how many modern animals are represented in the dinosaurian sedimentary layers?
“We found fossilized examples from every major invertebrate animal phylum living today including: arthropods (insects, crustaceans etc.), shellfish, echinoderms (starfish, crinoids, brittle stars, etc.), corals, sponges, and segmented worms (earthworms, marine worms).
“The vertebrates—animals with backbones such as fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals—show this same pattern.”

Modern fish, amphibians and reptiles:

“Cartilaginous fish (sharks and rays), boney fish (such as sturgeon, paddlefish, salmon, herring, flounder and bowfin) and jawless fish (hagfish and lamprey) have been found in the dinosaur layers and they look the same as modern forms.
“Modern-looking frogs and salamanders have been found in dinosaur dig sites.
“All of today’s reptile groups have been found in the dinosaur layers and they look the same or similar to modern forms: Snakes (boa constrictor), lizards (ground lizards and gliding lizards), turtles (box turtles, soft-shelled turtles), and crocodilians (alligators, crocodiles and gavials).”

Modern birds:

“Contrary to popular belief, modern types of birds have been found, including: parrots, owls, penguins, ducks, loons, albatross, cormorants, sandpipers, avocets, etc. When scientists who support evolution disclosed this information during our TV interviews it appears that they could hardly believe what they were saying on camera.

  1. “Few are aware of the great number of mammal species found with dinosaurs. Paleontologists have found 432 mammal species in the dinosaur layers;3 almost as many as the number of dinosaur species. These include nearly 100 complete mammal skeletons. But where are these fossils? We visited 60 museums but did not see a single complete mammal skeleton from the dinosaur layers displayed at any of these museums. This is amazing. Also, we saw only a few dozen incomplete skeletons/single bones of the 432 mammal species found so far. Why don’t the museums display these mammal fossils and also the bird fossils?”

    Why don’t the museums display these mammal fossils and also the bird fossils?

    Answer: Maybe there's not enough space.

    Verification Word: splap

  2. "This added hypothesis says that some animals did not evolve. But if a theory can be so flexible, adding hypotheses that predict the opposite of your main theory, one could never disprove the theory. The theory then becomes unsinkable, and an unsinkable theory is not science.”

    Except for one thing. Most people are not aware of the distinction between the practice of science and the philosophy of science.

    So what if the theory is unfalsifiable. That doesn't stop some of the ardent evolutionists to declare that evolution is not just merely theory, but that evolution is FACT.

    Verification Word: snest

  3. Not to mention the question of whether John Loftus is an evolved mushroom. Or perchance a devolved mushroom.
