  Real-life missing link crawls out of ocean on half-formed legs, slaps creationists in face

Scientists have discovered the 375-million-year-old fossilized remains of a 'missing link' between sea and land animals. The findings are published today in Nature.

The fish- 'Tiktaalik roseae', Inuknutuk for 'large shallow-water fish'-possesses the beginnings of digits, proto-wrists, elbows and shoulders, and was able to pull itself over land for short distances. Such an intermediary creature is "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." As paleontologist Erik Ahlberg noted, the Tiktaalik "might in time become as much an evolutionary icon as the proto-bird Archaeopteryx." What? Another Archaeopteryx? You're putting me on.

As a result of this discovery, scientists now expect to find the fossilized remains of Intelligent Design advocates, the missing link between 'fantasy' and 'truth'.
I've said it before and I'll say it again... well, played sir, I tip my hat to you.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
