What looks like feathers to you in a photograph, via actual on-site scientific testing and study, turns out to be nothing related to feathers.

You can cry "crackpot" and "but it looks like feathers" all you want...but that won't change the actual study results.

I'm sorry...I know it hurts to be defrauded in such a way, again.

Oh, my! Another empty victory dance. Maybe Running Wolf will come by and give you a cyber high-five for nothing; he's easy.

Here's your problem. Feduccia is hammering, hammering, hammering on Sinosauropteryx. The feathers look like scales (version one) or some kind of vague integuments (version two). So what? Here's the mainstream science progression for dinos to birds. (A cladogram.)

From here.

Sinosauropteryx is allowed to have primitive-looking proto-feathers. It's just insulation. The feathers get truer as you go out the branch. That's just what happens in the fossil record.

Feduccia is just pounding the table. That's why the museums are ignoring him. EVERYBODY's ignoring him.
