You want proof of evolution?

So there’s a warm blooded fish. Your move, creationists.

  1. These people seem to use the Flintstones as a documentary!
    Sure, debating them can work, I do it occasionally, but it can be hard to convince such people. You must first give them several science lessons. Maybe ignoring them is the key…

    1. Because this is the perfect example of an “inbetween” animal, a transitional one that creationists are always claiming doesn’t exist.

      If creationism is true, there shouldn’t be fish with mammalian qualities, just like there shouldn’t be mammals with reptilian qualities, etc. Each animal should be “of its kind” as the bible says.

      However, the principles of evolution perfectly explain such a creature.

    2. It’s even evidence for how, as evolutionary theory indicates, life in the sea could have evolved to live on the land and become the creatures we see today.

  2. “If creationism is true, there shouldn’t be fish with mammalian qualities, just like there shouldn’t be mammals with reptilian qualities, etc. Each animal should be “of its kind” as the bible says.” There are some qualities that are shared by fish, mammals, and reptiles. This discovery does nothing to prove that creation is false. You can’t call it transitional unless you can prove that its ancestors were cold blooded.

    1. And exactly what would those properties that are common be?

      The creationist claim is that a fish can’t be “more than a fish” because God created all fish to share similar properties differentiating them from the other “kinds” on earth. Here we have a fish that goes against that belief.

      1. Where does the Bible say that all fish are different from all other kinds? The Bible simply says that God created different kinds of life. It doesn’t give any details. Obviously the kinds included both cold blooded fish and warm blooded fish.

      2. First of all, I find it amusing that although you yourself admit there are no details given in scripture, the conclusion is “obvious.” Like all scripture, it’s open to interpretation.

        I’ve had creationists in the past, on this very blog, tell me that since each animal exists, “according to its kind” that evolution is false, because a bird can never be “more than its kind.” In other words, there are properties that separate one “kind” from other “kinds.”

        This fish violates that rule. It’s not “according to its kind.”

  3. This thing doesn’t seem to be a warm-blooded animal all too much. It uses the constant flapping of its fins to generate heat, and the old blood to help heat up the new blood. It also doesn’t maintain a constant body temperature, just a constant one compared to the outside world.
    That being said, this is still really cool. The fact that things this complicated can exist inside of a creature still amazes me, especially since it’s just through a deadly game of trial and error.
