Fossil may be 'missing link' from sea to land

A REMARKABLE fossil find might be the missing link that shows how our ancestors climbed out of the primordial swamps to live on land.
The well-preserved remains, unearthed from 370-million-year-old rocks in Latvia, has features in between those of fish and land animals.

The skull shape is that of an early tetrapod – four-legged vertebrates that mostly lived on land – but the rest of Ventastega curonica was clearly more suited to water.

Wow, I wonder how this discovery will change the whole discussion of evolution. I personally don't understand the semantics, but I guess this could put a damper on creationism, unless one were supporting the intelligent design aspects.
