Dinosaurs and birds

Now, the theory of dinosaurs evolving into birds is mostly universally accepted. I personally love prehistoric birds and dinosaurs. My favorite is Microraptor gui, the famed "four-winged dinosaur". Does anyone here not believe the evolution of dinosaurs into birds? And if anyone would like to share their interests or favorite dinosaurs/prehistoric birds, feel free!

Birds did NOT evolve from dinosaurs. They evolved from reptiles, but those reptiles were not dinosaurs, strictly speaking. Just in the same way that crocodilians and turtles are not dinosaurs, even though they were also around at the same time.
