Coelacanth C'est la Guerre

The Coelacanth was a staple of evolutionary dogma as a transitional form between sea creatures and something evolving parts to live on land. Naturally, it was just a campfire tale. Worse for Darwinists, the critter was seen alive, well — and unchanged; a living fossil. Why didn't it evolve? The rescuing device was that it didn't need to, even after alleged millions of years. It was beginning to, right? Must have changed its mind, despite all the changes it endured over all that time. Also, the budding legwork turned out to have other functions and had nothing to do with evolution after all, it was designed the way it is by its Creator.

Evolutionists are trying to resurrect the coelacanth, which embarrassed them before by being found alive and unchanged. New bad science is added to the just-so stories.

But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the dawn, and additional evolutionary campfire tales are the sun! Yep, they're trying to bring this thing back by compounding their errors. Hilarity ensues among thinking people at their propaganda efforts. C'est la guerre.
Instead of showing remorse over a Lazarus taxon, evolutionists invoke another besetting sin: vestigial organs.

The poster child for living fossils is Coelacanth, a lobe-finned fish long thought extinct till a living one was found swimming just fine in 1938 off the coast of South Africa. That discovery drowned notions of it evolving into a land animal, because its bony fins were not used for locomotion on the bottom in shallow waters. Instead, the fish spends much of its time in a vertical posture.

One might suppose that evolutionists would be embarrassed by this double falsification. One might hope they would turn their attention to either finding more fossils of coelacanths in the intervening layers of the fossil record, or admitting that evolution did almost nothing to these fish for allegedly 66 million years since they went extinct. Even worse, evolutionists must admit there was no major change to the coelacanth kind for 344 million years, according to their standard evolutionary timeline.

By the way, the mockery of the "Lazarus taxon" is ironic, because although Lazarus was raised from the dead, he died again later. For eternal life, that requires faith in Jesus Christ, not faith in just-so stories to bolster man's rebellion against God.
