"Walking" Bichir and Evolutionary Fantasy


Once again, proponents of evolution are conflating "change" and "adaptation" with "evolution", and then extrapolating changes as evidence of microbes-to-microbiologist evolution. Experiments done on bichirs, a fish that can move across land for short distances, produced modifications (you can have them in your aquarium, but watch out that they don't eat your other fish). Great, we have true experimental science in action. 

The assertions about evolution are entirely unwarranted, however. And no evidence of the multitude of changes that evolution would require. Backward assumptions are not evidence, they are fantasy. Unfortunately, proponents of evolution believe such unfounded conjectures to be the evidence that they desire. Another explanation that is conveniently omitted is that this is an example of the ability to adapt that was programmed into the bichir by the Creator.
Could a popular African air-breathing aquarium fish—the bichir—hold the key to mysteries underlying our presumably pre-terrestrial past? These fish aren’t lobe-finned like the ones evolutionists think evolved into terrestrial animals. Nevertheless, University of Ottawa evolutionary biomechanist Emily Standen and her McGill University colleague Hans Larsson decided to raise some bichirs out of water to see what would happen.

The bichir (or “dinosaur eel”) is a ray-finned fish that has both gills and lungs. Lungfish are lobe-finned fish with both gills and lungs. These fish pop their heads above the surface for air to supply or supplement their oxygen needs. Both gills and lungs appear very deep in the fossil record, so evolutionists debate which evolved first. This research focused on walking, however, not breathing.
