Whales Haven't Evolved In 25 Million Years

"And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good." --Genesis 1:21

Science Daily: How Whales Have Changed Over 35 Million Years.

Large whales, small whales and medium-sized whales all appeared early in the history of whales, with the large whales eating mostly plankton, small whales eating fish and medium-sized whales eating squid.

"Those differences were probably in place by 25 million years ago at the latest, and for many millions of years, they have not changed very much," said the study's lead author, Graham Slater, a National Science Foundation-funded UCLA postdoctoral scholar in Alfaro's laboratory. "It's as if whales split things up at the beginning and went their separate ways. The distribution of whale body size and diet still corresponds to these early splits."

You're right except for the split between baleen and toothed whales, and the rise of 80 modern species of whale, the development of echolocation.

But it's nice to see you acknowledging evolution. It's almost, but not quite like you admitting you were wrong.

Feels good, man.

Archaea haven't evolved in 3.6 billion years.

Cyanobacteria haven't evolved in 2.8 billion years.

Matter of fact no animals have evolved.

Jeffery Keown said...

You give 2 examples of equilibrium in nature and then say no animals have evolved? That's absurd.

Both are wildly radiant within the constrains of their environment.

You are either in denial, or a liar.

Jeffery Keown said...

It is entertaining how you mis-use an article on evolution, then claim it doesn't happen.

What the Hell is wrong with you?

This, for example, marks you as a looney: Matter of fact no animals have evolved.

You have no support for this. You have no evidence, only your gut telling you that God did it. And that God is an alien creature of some kind.
