Of the 1,240 living mammal species, almost 25 percent are the amazingly designed bats. They compose the second-largest order of mammals, next to rodents,2 and are ecologically and economically important. Bats effectively control insect pests and are essential to the pollination of some flowers. In fact, a number of tropical plants depend entirely on bats for seed dispersal. Mammologists place these nocturnal creatures into two suborders—the Microchiroptera (echolocating, insect-eating bats) and Megachiroptera (fruit-eating bats). According to evolution, both groups evolved from an unknown flying common ancestor.Now I'm done pitching this very interesting article. To read the rest, click on "The Evidence Rats Out Bat Evolution".
Bat Origins Evolutionists maintain that a rodent of some sort evolved into a bat. Yet, over 1,000 fossil bats have been unearthed and scientists have not classified a single one as an intermediate between rodents and bats. They’re all bats, as predicted by the creation model.
If there was ever such a great transformation, evolutionarily speaking, it would be a remarkable transition from an unknown rodent to a swift-flying bat. How do evolutionists account for this? Strangely, a 2007 book edited by two evolutionists titled Major Transitions in Vertebrate Evolution does not explain the process. Neither does Great Transformations in Vertebrate Evolution, published several years later. Why the silence on bat origins?
