So how does the Senter study relate to the theory being presented in this site?
The Senter study shows that the Tyrannosaur cluster (Tyrannosaur, Compsognathidae etc) does not relate to the Birdlike cluster. This is strong support for the idea that birds did not develop from dinosaurs.
Now the Senter study was undertaken in an attempt to show that "creationists" need to accept the idea of evolution. However the study actually does the opposite. Creationists can take from the study support for their idea of created kinds.
That is a conclusion that can be made.
I am taking a less controversial position.
I am saying that birds developed from pterosaurs. The Senter study shows that birds did not develop from dinosaurs so the question of bird origins is still open.
A creationist could say that birds were a creation of a higher intelligence. I am saying that birds developed from pterosaurs.
What I am proposing is compatible with both evolutionism and creationism.
