That doesn't help or answer the question. There's no food in the sky, there's no shelter in the sky - it's all on the ground. What purpose would it serve a creature to evolve the ability to fly when it's existence relies on what's on the ground?
Seriously?

Yes there is shelter in taking flight if your predator can't fly or shoot a gun.

And some food is found while flying. I watched a bird soaring over a lake looking for fish through much of my dinner last night. Terrestrial raptors such as hawks and owls do the same thing.

And if you have to cover a lot of ground to find food, flying is helpful once again.

Oh ya, the fish grew legs and came onto land, they also grew the right eyes, skin & internal organs at the same time (including a pelvic bone).
Yes, more or less. Why not? Because it challenges your faith? Why do you suppose that almost all objections to that idea come from people with an agenda to see that it is not believed?

What, some of them decided life was better in the water and went back?
Without the deciding part, yes. Why not? Because it challenges your faith?
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Then why not evolve gills from their lungs?
I don't know. Perhaps because it is not necessary. It was necessary to develop lungs form gills to get from sea to land, but it was not necessary to develop gills to get back.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Why not lose the pelvic bone?
I don't know enough about this subject to give you definitive answers, but as I understand it, the whales are losing their pelvic bones.

If the pelvic bones still a purpose apart from their original one - to articulate the legs with the pelvis - they won't disappear completely, however. Those bones might still be useful for the birthing process, or to serve as a site of attachment for various muscles.

Thanks for your version of celebrating a Christian holiday.
I did celebrate something Sunday, but it wasn't Easter. I went to a cast party. One friend acted in a local play, and another helped make the sets.

Did you think that I was celebrating Easter because I "played all day" instead of working? I did that Monday and yesterday, too. And I'll do it today and tomorrow as well. And the rest of the month. And the rest of the year.

It takes intelligence to be truly funny. That was funny on multiple levels. Delivery, conciseness, turning it around, self-deprecating humor while being good natured, nonchalance...that had it all!
I don't use icons but saw someone left a brilliant and a funny. If I were to use them I would have chose those two as well
(skom tips his hat)
Now...off to bed for real:)
Does it take intelligence to have a sense of Humor??

Were the Cherry blossoms in bloom in Shanghai?
I really miss that.
Yes, and they were beautiful. There were 150,000 strolling through them at a park last Sunday. I don't remember the park's name, but what an experience. In Guilin now, spectacular karst scenery.

I must add, the Chinese people are so, so warm.

Really?
1 Corinthians 16:1-2
Now about the collection for God's people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do. On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.
---
And when Paul met with believers in Troas to worship and celebrate communion, they gathered on the first day of the week:
Acts 20:7
On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight.
----
Christian groups that adhere to a Sunday Sabbath feel that the Lord's command was not specifically for the seventh day, but rather, one day out of the seven week days.
By changing the Sabbath to Sunday, or the day the Jesus resurrected, they feel it symbolically represents the acceptance of Jesus Christ.
Where I work(ed), the first day of the week is Saturday.

There are few Caucasians where I am now.

Teenage girls approach and ask to have their picture taken with me.

You guys are bigots in more that one way.

I think that if any post ever deserved a "touching" icon, it was this one.

Mrs Aint is a proud mother this week. She had five of her monarch caterpillar cocoons "hatch." Two butterflies tried to fly straight to their doom - one into a puddle, and another into a spider web. She rescued them both.
