Some research I am currently doing brought me to an article in the New Scientist of 19 August, 2000, entitled "One Small Step for Fish, One Giant Leap for Us." Here is the opening paragraph -- please keep in mind this is an evolution-oriented magazine: What is it really like being a fish out of water? Well, you can't breathe for one thing. Your skin dries up. So does the rest of your body because your kidneys aren't designed to conserve fluid. And without legs you can't hed for home. Even if you could, how would you find your way? You can't see or hear properly, and neither can you smell. Then there's the problem of lunch. Your jaws aren't made for catching and eating terrestrial fare. Anyway, your digestive system couldn't cope with it. And if, against all the odds, you survive and find an equally stranded mate, reproduction is unthinkable. p. 28 And yet the article goes on to try to explain how some new fossil discoveries have encouraged evolutionists to think this really happened. On page 31, the following quote can be found: "The transition between the fish-like condition in panderichthyids and the tetrapod-like condition in Acanthostega must have really been quite rapid...and it seems to have occurred at the same time as changes to the limbs" and, I might add, at the same time the kidneys, digestive tract, circulatory system, eyes and ears and so much else must also have changed quite rapidly. Right... In other words, they are going to cling to evolution no matter what, even with evidence running against it genetically, biologically, and historically. Here is how the article ends: "The current reconstructions are wrong in almost every respect," says Clack. She and Ahlberg will first focus on the brain case. "We already know how weird that is and we've got some ideas about what it's going to tell us," says Clack. After that they will look at other areas including the neck and pelvic regions, which are hardly known. "Potentially we'll have to rethink the whole thing again with the new Ichthyostega study comeing up," she says. But evolution happened, you know.... Really! It DID! It's a matter of faith, though, not of evidence, as so many articles, including this one, silently testify to. It was material such as this, and even more bluntly stated, about 30 years ago, which were part of my path from evolution to creation. The evidence screams 'creation', and I finally had ears to hear.
