Then what was this changing genes you were talking about?
The guppies in the FSU study. Granted the genetic changes were things like metabolism associated with the removal of predators. Still, the change in
environment prompted 35 gene mutations in a few years.
But if you want my the best guess why fish moved out of the water, here it is.
375 million years ago, when the proposed transitional animal lived, was called The Late Devonian Period. It was also a period of "anoxia", or
deoxygenation of the oceans. The cause of this anoxia is up for debate, but a slow loss of oxygen is a necessary catalist to prompt animals to move
out of the water to a world being overtaken by angiosperms, which may have flourished because of high Co2 levels.
