    All right, all right- I admit I took it a little too seriously.

    Well that proves it. I might as well burn my Y.E.C. membership card, cancel my subscription to Creation Magazine, and start an anti Ken Ham campaign.

    Why would something crawl out of the sea, and then end up going back in to evolve into a sea creature? Why not stay in the water?

    Probably because most every other mammal decided to stay on land. It could have been competition for over resources (aka food and territory). The ocean is full of food and open space.

    But why not just stay in the water to begin with?

    What's funny, is that most YE creationists actually believe that's how scientists think it happened.

    And (of course) they get jowl-quivering indignant when people conclude they aren't very smart.

    They can hardly be blamed. About 20 years ago, I saw a video in which a creationist (I think Henry Morris) presented his version of a whale transitional.

    It was the front half of a cow attached to the rear half of a fish. And his audience nodded with great seriousness, when he declared that is what evolution says about whales.

    He also declared that if anyone found a whale with legs, it would make an evolutionist of him. Later, when such whales were found, he declared that if they had legs, they wouldn't be whales.

    You do realize it was a joke, right?
