Last week after I read the new data about archyopteryx's feet, I was disappointed that AiG wasn't replying with the high octane crazy juice. So I emailed them:

Scientists just said that they've found a new archaeoptyrx fossil, and that it confirms birds evolved from dinosaurs. yet i see no response on your website. so do you agree with them?

After several days, I've received a reply:

Dear Steve,

Thank you for contacting Answers in Genesis.  No, we would not agree.  Since their interpretation is based on their presuppositions.  Do you have a specific article we could look at?  Chances are this is just another attempt at make the “dinos to birds” connection.  I’m sure there is nothing new that we haven’t already covered.

What about Archaeoraptor and Archaeopteryx, which some evolutionists claim are ‘missing links’ between dinosaurs and birds?

·         Archaeoraptor Hoax Update — National Geographic Recants!

·         Archaeoraptor — Phony ‘feathered’ fossil

·         Archaeopteryx (unlike Archaeoraptor) is not a hoax — it is a true bird, not a ‘missing link’

·         Bird evolution?

·         Bird evolution: discontinuities and reversals (Technical)

·         Bird evolution falls flat

·         Bird evolution flies out the window (An anatomist [Dr David Menton] talks about Archaeopteryx)

·         Claws on wings

I pray this is helpful.  Have a great day and God bless.

In His name and for His glory,

In response, I emailed him the specific article he asked for:

Considering that this new data was reported a week ago, I doubt you have already covered it. You might already have made up your mind, but I doubt you've covered it already.

I will report here any followup I get from them.

It's now obvious why Noah didn't send an Archeopterix to retrieve a twig from a fig tree!

as of this posting, neither Answers in Genesis, Dembski's blog, nor Evolution News and Views (the DI blog of Casey Ruxpin) has mentioned this new discovery about Archaeopteryx.
