Hagfish Haunts Darwin

A zombie hagfish rises from the dead, and scares Darwin from two directions.

January 24, 2019 | David F. Coppedge

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.

Darwin died in 1882.

I doubt he very much cares about any stupid fish.

Because.. you know.. dead and all.

“Darwin” in the title is personified by his modern day acolytes.

But the new fossil shows that hagfish 100 million years ago were remarkably similar to hagfish today, suggesting that their specialized features accumulated gradually over time.

I don't how this logically follows.

I have something today. I had this thing 100 million years ago. Therefore, it accumulated gradually. WHAT?!? This is actually evidence of an absence of evolution within the chosen timeframe.

Darwinian theory does not depend on human ability to explain particular features.

Like any theory, it explains a lot.

Saying that we do not understand a particular example only means we do not understand a particular example.

It does not invalidate Darwinian theory.

‘It does not invalidate Darwinian theory.’

on this forum, less than that invalidates Darwin...

OK so they evolved to do this.

You need to understand TToE to attack it.

You don’t nor do the authors.

The YECers do not understand science nor what a Scientific Theory is.

They think it “Guess->Hypothesis->Theory”

Of course that is not science at all (and if it was then AGW would qualify which it does not for the same reason YEC does not).

It is sad that these ignoramuses come here from time to time to give liberals ammunition.

Do the people at “Creation Evolution Headlines” ever do any original research?

>>“Darwin” in the title is personified by his modern day acolytes.<<

AKA “scientists.”

And if you can’t tell the difference between TToE and AGW and why the first is science and the latter not it just tells everyone how little you understand the subject matter of your post.

This post makes the author the sandy/alex occasional-cortex of science. And you as a follower.

They have mindless followers, why actually think it through?

AIG is worse but not that much.
