As far as I can tell that is correct. In fact the point of Mere Christianity was only to point out what you must believe to be a Christian. Evolutionists and Creationists agree that the debate has no effect in soteriology. We also agree that none of that information has anything to do with dinosaur feathers. Are you suggesting C.S. Lewis believed dinosaurs had feathers?
Don't think dinosaurs were his bag but, perhaps? I'm really just stirring the water a bit.

Each thing has its word, but the word has become a thing by itself. Why shouldn't I find it? Why can't a tree be called Pluplusch, and Pluplubasch when it has been raining? The word, the word, the word outside your domain, your stuffiness, this laughable impotence, your stupendous smugness, outside all the parrotry of your self-evident limitedness. The word, gentlemen, is a public concern of the first importance.
For I am a poor and a wretched boy:
A chimbley, chimbley sweep.

Words are symbols. Signifiers without significance are no longer valid. You can call things whatever you want but for language to succeed you must be understood by others.

Footprint find on Crete may push back date humans began to walk upright
HUMAN-like footprints have been found stamped into an ancient sea shore fossilised beneath the Mediterranean island of Crete.
They shouldn’t be there.

Testing puts the rock’s age at 5.7 million years.

That’s a time when palaeontologists believe our human ancestors had only apelike feet.
And they lived in Africa.

But a study into the Trachilos, western Crete, prints determines them to feature prominent human features and an upright stance.

And that’s significant as the human foot has a unique shape. It combines a long sole, five short toes, no claws — and a big toe.

Dinosaur sported 'bandit mask'

Image
A dinosaur from China sported a "bandit mask" pattern in the feathers on its face, scientists have said.

Researchers came to their conclusion after studying three well-preserved fossil specimens of the extinct creature, called Sinosauropteryx.

They were able to discern the dinosaur's colour patterns, showing that it had a banded tail and "counter-shading" - where animals are dark on top and lighter on their underside.

The study appears in Current Biology.

The bandit mask pattern is seen in numerous animals today, from mammals - such as raccoons and badgers - to birds, such as the nuthatch.

"This is the first time it's been seen in a dinosaur and, to my knowledge, any extinct animal that shows colour bands," co-author Fiann Smithwick, from Bristol University, told BBC News.

SA: The Birds Are NOT Dinosaurs Movement
A huge quantity of evidence shows that birds are dinosaurs, and specifically a lineage of the coelurosaurian theropod group Maniraptora. Additional support for the coelurosaurian origin of birds arrives on a regular basis, since new Jurassic and Cretaceous fossil species that fit somewhere on the bird lineage are reported virtually every month. But… I can’t help but be interested in ‘non-standard’ or ‘alternative’ hypotheses on evolutionary history, and among the most interesting is the ‘Birds Are Not Dinosaurs’ (or BAND) movement. It’s made “among the most interesting” by the fact that its proponents have seen themselves as crusaders, true sceptics and better scientists than those who support what is now the mainstream model; they’ve – I think unwittingly – moulded themselves into a distinct social group, even going so far as wearing special badges at conferences.
Psst... Yes, they are. :D

People who believe dinosaurs didn't have feathers are crazy.
