It Sure Sucks to be a Creationist Right Now
PZ Myers has a good analysis of the new fossil (Ventastega curonica) announced a couple of days ago:
On one earlier side we have a bunch of tetrapod-like fish — Tiktaalik and Panderichthys, for instance — and on the later side we have fish-like tetrapods, such as Acanthostega and Ichthyostega. Now they’re talking about shades of fishiness or tetrapodiness within those groups! You’d almost think they were documenting a pattern of gradual evolutionary change.
The creationists keep claiming there are no transitional fossils. That’s a lie that’s getting harder and harder to maintain.
