Fossil Called Missing Link From Sea to Land Animals
from the new york times:
"Other scientists said that in addition to confirming elements of a major transition in evolution, the fossils were a powerful rebuttal to religious creationists, who have long argued that the absence of such transitional creatures are a serious weakness in Darwin's theory."
from the creationists:
"Both God’s Word and His creation are saying the same thing. And over the past 50 years, true science has been increasingly confirming Scripture (italics mine). With more research by both evolutionists and creationists in the years ahead, we can fully expect that many questions that young-earth creationists cannot presently answer will later be answered and will be shown to confirm that God created the whole universe a few thousand years ago (i don't think so!), then cursed His whole creation a few days later because of Adam’s sin and then destroyed it with a global, catastrophic, year-long flood at the time of Noah, just as the Bible clearly teaches.
I hope that you will consider these resources and study Genesis 1–11 more carefully, and then submit to the authority of God’s Word in all things."
well; there's nothing like an open mind. is there....
i submit only to the inevitability of increasing entropy (the second law of thermodynamics). and there's absolutely nothing i, or anybody else can do about it-including the creationists.
