Hagfish Hassles Evolutionary Ideas

No need to be afraid unless you are a Darwinist. There is an ugly creature known as the hagfish that exists in many species around the world, looks a bit like a snake, has no jaw, and lives up to its nickname of slime eel. Yes, when provoked, it can secrete huge amounts of slime for defense.


The strange hagfish baffles evolutionists in many ways. It also shows the design of the Creator.

That slime thing is related to motion, and actually can clog the gills of predators. The hagfish can produce quite a bit of it in a short time. Its slime is like a multitude of tiny threads. In a biomimetics move, the US Navy is interested in studying it. I don't think they're interested in the part where the hagfish can tie itself into a knot, though.

Evolutionists squabble about how to classify the hagfish because it does not fit nicely into any category. Naturally, Darwin's disciples would have you believe that it has been around for millions of years, but they have no fossil evidence for where it came from, and what little they have shows that they have not changed. The cop-out rescuing device of "stasis", a non-answer, is utilized. 

What we really have here is a creature that the Master Engineer assembled in its specified complexity and has no sign of evolution. Here is the first of two articles on the subject (there is some overlap, but they emphasize different areas of interest).
A zombie hagfish rises from the dead, and scares Darwin from two directions.

Hagfish are eel-like fish that look like creatures from a horror movie. Their tapir-like snouts are scary enough, but when threatened, they have a unique weapon: slime! They can spread a net of sticky slime around them that can clog the gills of an attacker. And they have been doing this for at least 100 million Darwin Years, perhaps 300 million.
To read the rest, slide on over to "Hagfish Haunts Darwin". 

Next, we have an article that focuses on the difficulties that hagfish fossils pose for evolutionists.
Lead author Tetsuto Miyashita of the University of Chicago published results in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. His team managed to sandwich the fossil’s chemical details between long discussions of where it should be placed in evolutionary diagrams of supposed relatedness. Darwinists hunt for a bottom-to-top progression of fossils initially showing no backbone, then a partial backbone, and finally a full backbone. But bones found in the lowest layers are a hard act for that tale to follow. Amidst speculations of what role hagfish should play in evolution’s imaginary relationships lay little chemical remnants that carry a big message. 
That message conveys a conflict between fossils and evolution’s core aspect of long ages. Standard beliefs date this hagfish fossil’s sedimentary rock layer from Lebanon at 100 million years old. Other hagfish fossils come from even deeper layers with age assignments over three times older.

The very short video below has no sound. There is a good close-up of the critter.
