If you thought it strange that those incredible whales and dolphins are supposed to have evolved from freshwater and ultimately terrestrial environments then you’ll be amazed to hear that evolutionists are now saying the same is true for the majority of fish in the ocean. As they explain:
Remarkably, trait reconstructions (for both living and fossil taxa) suggest that all extant marine actinopterygians were derived from a freshwater ancestor …
Another evolutionist speculates that these new results may point to a more general pattern. Perhaps most major groups of vertebrates ultimately came from land-based ecosystems. If so, then the incredible Mr. Limpet had it all wrong. Most fish didn’t crawl out of the ocean, they crawled into the ocean:
Have you given much thought to the Devonian Period?
The Devonian Period of the Paleooic Era. You know, it followed the Silurian and preceded the Carboniferous Eras.
I try not to think of things like that.
I've given it a lot of thought. Do you realize our ancestors were fish?
Maybe your ancestors, Henry, not mine. Maybe you ought to try to find a new hobby. Maybe go in for parakeets.
I'm not joking. I can explain.
He sure can. He's read many books on the subject. He claims years ago there was nothing but fish in the world.
That's right. Then some of those creatures became amphibians. They crawled out on land. Millions of years later they became men.
I know some who ought to crawl back.
Doesn't it give you a thrill of hope?
Hope for what, Henry?
But while Mr. Limpet has been falsified, evolutionists are of course undeniably correct. True, evolution doesn’t always make sense, but there are always just-so stories to explain the contradictions. In this case the evolutionists are now saying that freshwater environments form an “arc of survival” that act to reseed the oceans. Makes perfect sense.
Religion drives science and it matters.
