Freaky Fish

Those genetic engineers with a god complex are at it again. Now they've created a fish with proto- shoulders, arms, wrists, and digits. IS THERE NO SANCTITY FOR NATURE??!!

Just kidding. The fish (named Tiktaalik) is actually a 375-million year old fossil discovered on Ellesmere Island in Nunavut that bridges the evolutionary gap between the fishy eusthenopteron and the early amphibian ichthyostega. Which you might think will convince some people that evolution might have happened sort of how we think it did. But sadly, it probably won't convince them at all.
