Evolution stops or continues depending on environmental factors.
Proof # 1: the coelacanth hasn't changed for millions of years and I believe neither has the shark and probably 100s of other species as
Sorry Lannock your so far off base I am going to call you Hovind for the rest of this post
Right Mr. Hovind the two species of coelacanth we see today swimming in our oceans are Latimeria chalumnae and L. menadoensis, while the come under
the umbrella term of coelacanth they are only two extant(still living) members all the species that once lived under the umbrella term coelacanth,
both L. chalumnae and L. menadoensis are relatively new species within the Order COELACANTHIFORMES and are not the same ones that we have found
fossilized dating back hundreds of millions of years, there are lobefinned members of the Order coelacanthiformes that are similar in appearance to
our two extant species but are not the same species
heres a list of all the ones that are now extinct and are the ones we do find fossilized in the millions of year old rock
Family Coelacanthidae (extinct)
Family Diplocercidae (extinct)
Family Hadronectoridae (extinct)
Family Mawsoniidae (extinct)
Family Miguashaiidae (extinct)
Latimeria (James Leonard Brierley Smith, 1939)
L. chalumnae (Comorese coelacanth) (James Leonard Brierley Smith, 1939)
L. menadoensis (Indonesian coelacanth) (Pouyaud, Wirjoatmodjo, Rachmatika, Tjakrawidjaja, et al., 1999)
Family Laugiidae (extinct)
Family Rhabdodermatidae (extinct)
Family Whiteiidae (extinct)
the two in bold Mr. Hovind are the one's that are alive today and are not found in hundreds of million year old rocks as fossils
should you compare a modern one with the ones above many are wildly different some are similar but none are the same
when you're confusing an entire Order of species as a single species your really going to look dumb when it smacks you in the face like now.
Thats likes saying wow Carnivora are still alive today they have not changed for million of years and being dumb enough not to realize it covers
nearly every carnivorous mammal that has lived for the past 42 million years and is as diverse as elephant seals, dogs, cats and panda's and 256
other(extant) species in between
sharks horseshoecrabs and anything else you care to pull out of the bag ay is a living fossil and has not evolevd at al in the last x number of years
i m quite happy to predict a)your wrong about it b) ill be able to prove you are
I think that's all the proof I need, eh?
Well its all the proof i need to know you know nothing about taxonomy paleontology or
evolutionary biology, is that good enough?
How can you let a creationist teach your religion to you?
have yet to learn anything from a creationist that is worth knowing except
for repeating down the local bar as a joke
maybe you should try teaching us and we will correct you as you go?
Back to the OP yes were still evolving physically i can pull out some examples if you like?
In fact the major change that increased our brain size by altering our skull shape i still active and still flexing which is the number one cause in
teeth misalignment in people and when 80+%of the worlds populations are suffering the same thing it lets you know it still on the moveit still on the
