Why should specimens like these NOT be considered transitional fossils between dinosaurs and birds by creationists? [Spirituality & Religion]

The definition of a transitional form is one which exhibits features which are characteristic of the ancestral organism and other features which are characteristic of the descendant organism.



These fossils fit that description exactly.
They show dinosaur features like a toothy snout, long bony tail, clawed forelimbs and gastralia.
But they also show avian features like feet adapted to perching rather than running, hollow bones and most conspicuously [i]feathers [/i]which were slightly asymmetrical making them more aerodynamic.

So does the creationist have a legitimate reason to deny this as a transitional form or is their denial anchored in their faith and not in science?

Because Yahweh didn't create the creatures, who lived at that time period, that way. He created them whole.

Every fossil is a transitional. I don't know what creationists expect transitional fossils to look like.

But it's a complete species, it doesn't have half a wing now, does it.

@Pikachu In their minds, they don't have to.
@Bushranger

Or at least they're content to ignore that which they find problematic.

@Pikachu Yep, can't go against your limited world view.
Because they aren't evolving like pokémon do. I have to see it myself happening. But even then it's not science but a creator doing it:3
@canusernamebemyusername

Unassailable logic.
*some creationists.

You gotta be specific when referring to the young earth, science denying, creationists because the majority of creationists are fine with evolution.

@Pikachu if ur tryna say god aint real, i agree
@Zaxel

While i don't believe that a god exists, that is not what i'm trying to say here.
I'm only sharing the evidence that evolution has occurred.
