They look a lot like mudskippers. Like most subjects, the creationists are probably ignorant of the fact that there are a number of fish species that can exist on land.

Hey dipshyt Dan. Tell me how science defines a fish? Then we will determine if they are fish or not.

Here's a definition from Wiki: "A fish is any member of a paraphyletic group of organisms that consist of all gill-bearing aquatic craniate animals that lack limbs with digits."

I'll help you with the words you don't understand.

Show me a definition of a gilled "fish" that lives on land and not in water.

Somebody really wants my attention. What a dipshit too. Doesn't even know what a fish is. Probably thinks a snakehead is that thing he learned from his dad.

Hey Madrone, you replied to this thread only after I did. Does that mean you want my attention?

Keep showing how much of an idiot you are. Madrone never came on here claiming someone was wanting to get their attention as you did. You came on saying I was trying to get your attention even though I commented before you did, What an idiot!! You are a fcking idiot and not only we all know it you as well know it. Drink up Dannyboy. Did those government cuts affect your disability check and how is that last DUI coming along?

Doesn't "aquatic" refer to something that spends most/all its life in water? But this new land-dwelling animal spends most of its life on land, so how does it fit into this definition of a fish?

Stupid. Reality doesn't care about our arbitrary labels and definitions. Since evolution is constant change the rather obvious consequence of such a process would be creatures such as this that straddle the lines of our definitions. Doesn't stop it from being exactly what evolution predicted organisms like this should exist.

The day fundies stop playing word games to argue against reality will be the day Jesus comes back.

Reading the article would have answered your question.

From the article in MikeF's link:

"This terrestrial fish spends all of its adult life living on the rocks in the splash zone,.... <snip>

<snip>... In order to stay on land they have to stay moist as to breathe through the gills and skin.

Or more importantly (since it's not the labels that matter), creatures which share characteristics of two other organisms without violating observed nested hierarchies.

Although evolution - correctly - predicts this all the time, so far without fail, the reality of this is lost on creationists despite the fact that their position doesn't come close to having such explanatory power.
