Like I said with regard to special creation, do you really think that 
Archaeopteryx was the only dino-bird in the Late Jurassic? I say that, as 
with birds today, once you have a finch, you soon have fifty species of 
finches; once you have an eagle, you soon have dozens of species of eagles. 
And once you have archaeopterygid, you soon have dozens of species of 
archaeopterygids, all over the world. And hundreds or thousands more 
dino-bird species less closely related to archaeopterygids. They were there 
all right, and maybe given time we'll be lucky enough to find some.

The existence of one species of finch is evidence for the existence of dozens 
of kinds of finches. Likewise, the existence of Archaeopteryx is evidence for 
the existence of dozens of species of archaeopterygids.
