 Evolutionist like to assume that just because Archaeopteryx  appears
to
 have shared some features with reptiles or dinosaurs it mean that it
 descended from a reptile or dinosaur.  Of course, there could be a
problem
 with this thought concerning Archaeopteryx.
 Creatures often have similar features which evolutionists do not
believe
 are derived from a common ancestor.   For instance, the giant panda
and
 the red panda are similar enough to both be called pandas, down to
their
 sesamoid thumbs (the only creatures to have them), but they are
believed
 to have no close relationship.  The giant panda is believed to have
 descended from bears and the red panda from the racoon. The
evolutionist
 call this evolution of their thumbs, "Convergent evolution"
 This process is said to have  made the thumbs of both pandas alike .
 If it can happen in that instance, on what basis does the
evolutionist
 claim the so-called reptilian features of Archaeopteryx  prove
descent
 from reptiles?
