    No, because she evolved no sense of humor.

      Because when animals began moving to the land there was a pretty empty ecosystem- just plants to chow on and no real predators. Of course, the predators followed them onto the land soon, but hey- nothing's perfect.

        Just to be clear, you're making an educated guess, right? You actually have no idea.

          Fortunately, I'm a Christian, and therefore don't think it's shameful to be a woman. So your gender confusion "insult" is just funny, not insulting.

          As far as the video being a joke, it's hard to tell with creationists. I've had them tell me stuff like that for straight. It's funny, of course, but not in the way you think it is.

          Reminds me of a joke:

          "How many creationists does it take to replace a light bulb?"

          "THAT'S NOT FUNNY!!!"

            No. At the time of these transitional tetrapods, there were no large animals on the land, just insects, none of which were any threat to them. In fact, they were probably utilized as prey, first by the fish rising up out of shallow water ( the evidence shows that the earliest fish with legs could basically only do a "pushup" motion) and then later by venturing onto land. No predators, there.

            You actually have no idea.
            If he's familiar with the evidence, he does.

              If he had no idea, then he couldn't make an educated guess.

                No, it is not an educated guess- it is pretty clear when the history of life is examined. Plants were the first land pioneers, stiffening their stalks and reaching for the sun and into the earth. They were followed by arthropods, and later vertebrates who left the water to avoid predators and find food. You may accept it or not, but I have a very good idea and it is supported by the evidence. We still have amphibians which need to return to the water for part of their lifecycle and many insects do the same.

                  What prevented them from dying then, that does not prevent them now? Perhaps you could tell me about some vertebrate that in recent history has made the slightest change towards this event.

                    What are you talking about? The transition from water to land has happened a few times, as I mentioned, and there are animals today that straddle the gap. If you want more details check out the lungfish and the mudskipper.

                        Don't encourage them. That's going to turn up somewhere on the web for real.

                            Uh... you are a Christian and you're NOT a creationist???

                            I mean... I could understand you not being a Young Earth Creationist but certainly you are a creationist, aren't you???

                              I don't think anyone will really be gullible enough to believe that animals can change over time, or that a big bad wolf will suddenly have a chihuahua pup. Crazy I tells ya.
