Getting a Charge Out of Electric Fish

It may come as a shock, but various forms of electric current are present in many living things, including people. Various critters have a sensing ability called electroreception, which is present in certain kinds of fish. Darwinists assert (without evidence) that electroreception and the ability to generate current evolved different times. Although that's far-fetched enough, it gets worse for them because some species have direct current, and others have alternating current! Watt will they come up with to explain it?

Some living things have the ability to generate and use electricity. The electric eel packs a wallop, and defies evolutionary explanations.

Let's take a little diversion. Imagine two cowboys meeting on the trail:
"What's in them saddlebags, Bob?"
"Batteries, Clem. When I camp out, I like to jam on my electric guitar. Want to hear my rendition of 'Purple Haze'?"
"I've heard you play. Do you take requests?"
"How 'bout them military songs? I'd like you to play 'Down by the River' and 'Fall In'."
"Not funny, Clem."
The electric eel, which has been used in some of the earliest cartoon animations, really does exist, and it packs a wallop. Unlike Bob and his saddlebags, the electric eel has its own built-in battery pack, but it can still move, mate, hunt, and zap enemies or prey. Evolutionary explanations for all the parts coming into being so this bad boy can operate are ridiculous. The logical explanation is that it is the product of its Designer.
The electric eel (Electrophorus electricus) lurks in the murky waters of the swamps and rivers of northern South America. With its highly sophisticated system of electrolocation, it is a stealthy predator, having the ability to navigate and hunt in conditions of low visibility. Using ‘electroreceptors’ to detect distortions in an electric field generated within its own body, it can locate a potential meal undetected. It then immobilizes its prey using a powerful electric shock, sizeable enough to stun a large mammal such as a horse, or even kill a man. Having a long cylindrical body it closely resembles what we commonly understand by eels (order Anguilliformes); however it belongs to a different fish order (Gymnotiformes).

Fish that can detect electric fields are called electroreceptive and those that can generate strong electric fields like these eels are called electrogenic.
