Of Fish and Fingers

Purveyors of Darwin's General Theory of Evolution (and its subsequent variations) claim that all life evolved from a common ancestor. They insist that our ancestors lived in the sea, and everything developed from there. Using speculation and convoluted reasoning, they see that similarities are evidence of common ancestry, and that fins evolved into fingers. It seems they were studying on the wrong fish, and now think that clues to the fingers that I'm using to make tappity-tap on my unregistered assault keyboard came from the Spotted Gar. 

Darwinists are thinking that the Spotted Gar may give genetic clues to the evolution of fingers from fins. They're really reaching on this one.

This fish is mainly found in areas around the Mississippi River, and may end up on "threatened" and "endangered" lists at some point, since its numbers are shrinking. Conveniently, Darwinists have classified the Spotted Gar as "primitive". There are lots of fish in the sea, so why this particular one with a limited habitat has genetic information that evolutionists need is a bit of a puzzler. After all, evolutionists claim that common features indicate common design, so shouldn't the genetic material be more common among the fishes? Meanwhile, Darwinistas do not see common features as evidence of common design from the Creator, oh no, can't allow a divine foot in the door.
Evolutionary efforts to demonstrate how genetic information to produce wrists, ankles, fingers, and toes evolved from the genes that blueprint fish fins “have fallen short,” according to ScienceDaily. That admission came as preamble to the announcement that this failure has resulted from study of the wrong fish. The fish harboring the genetic switch to flip on fingers, presumably retained over the eons, is the spotted gar.

Researchers in the laboratory of Neil Shubin of Tiktaalik fame report in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that, by shifting their sights to the spotted gar, they have discovered the incipient genetic information that eventually produced terrestrial mammalian “autopods.” Autopod is a convenient catch-all word for the bones that make up either wrists-and-fingers or ankles-and-toes. The spotted gar, these evolutionists believe, is more primitive than most bony ray-finned fish and therefore retains in its genome a genetic switch very similar to that used for autopod development in mammalian embryos
