Never sat right with me.

Sure, I get evolution on a long time scale, but fish out of water don't have that long.

A pond dries up, the fish die.

But that's just me.


Lung fish are a good way to see the fish out of water scenario and how amphibians evolved.

I have labyrinth organ fish in my tank. These are not an uncommon critter in the drink.

It's funny how far short some people show themselves to be when they don't bother to poke their head up from time to time in their lives. I mean, it's domesticated pets here, but they have wild versions (where TF do people think aquarium fish first came from??)

BTW, this refers to our Bettas, Kuhlies, and Cory Cat. (edit: and Pleco, we have one of those, too) They can all breathe air directly in addition to gill breathing.

Edit Part Deux: Also, before anyone tries to claim the Bettas will kill everything else --- no, they won't because these are females & they're the gentle gender, perfect community tank-friendly tank mates. The males kill everything, not the girls. Can keep them in larger groups called Sororities even.

How is evolution a symptom of “ degenerative mental decline”?

As time moves humanity goes thru generations. Everything in the
universe is in decline. The only thing I see making evolution remotely
viable to some is DMD. The further removed from the original source the
more handicapps we will see. So the mental decline we are experiencing
today is in direct contrast to evolution. Now this decline is likely the
only reason people today accept evolution instead of God amoung other
reasons.

But you believe it and it maybe your life and that's all good for you till
the end. But any way we should just avoid the great debate that never
ends shall we?

Evolution is accepted due to the evidence. It’s not a theory its an observed fact of reality.

I don’t necessarily think Mankind is worse mentally than before. More open about it and understanding perhaps. Some take advantage of such things to further their own agenda but evil people have always existed.

I will agree the word evolution exists for a reason.

And what reason is that?

One-line non-sequiturs don’t allude to much.

C'mon now you seriously don't have an answer to that question?

It's a word for observed changes overtime or by generations or design even.

That would be my own definition with out looking.

I must admit defeat. I consider myself an intelligent person and yet your responses are proving totally incomprehensible to me. Stuff about God, the source, mental decline and then non-sequitur responses.

Are you saying people are devolving because they don’t believe in God? Evolution is somehow responsible for this?

Negative! How could I even attempt to claim that evolution is responsible for devolution?

I'm not claiming there is any truth to what I'm saying partner. Purely speculative other
then the fact that everything is in a state of decay. I apologize if my transmissions
are vague or offensive to you.

Not offensive at all. Merely asking for clarity.
