Fossil snake shows its leg to the Expelled Crowd

The Creationist and Intelligent design crowd has some explaining to do about this transitional missing link for snakes.  Of course this missing link, the feathered dinosaurs and  the cetacean mesonychids fossils, well let’s face it, nothing satisfies the intellectual curiosity of  this crowd… oh, never mind, I forgot “god did it”!  Still they want to teach their pseudo-scientific crap in our public schools.

But go ahead and please explain away this recent fossil discovery my creationist friends.  I love to watch you dance!:

From the BBC:

A fossil animal locked in Lebanese limestone has been shown to be an extremely precious discovery – a snake with two legs.  Scientists have only a handful of specimens that illustrate the evolutionary narrative that goes from ancient lizard to limbless modern serpent.  Researchers at the European Light Source (ESRF) in Grenoble, France, used intense X-rays to confirm that a creature imprinted on a rock, and with one visible leg, had another appendage buried just under the surface of the slab.

Here’s the link:

Maybe this was the one in the Garden of Eden, you never know!  Does this convince any of the creationists to rethink their stance?  Of course not.  And that’s the biggest issue with creationism as a science, ask a scientist what disproves evolution and you will get the classic “finding a fossil bunny in a Pre-Cambrian rock layer disproves evolution.”  Ask a creationsits what disproves creationism as a theory you’ll get a blank look because it was always a matter of faith not science.  Nothing could dissuade them otherwise and that’s why Intelligent Design is not a science.

Sorry about spamming my own blog but the entire first Flores Girl: The Children God Forgot novel is available as a free download at WWW.FREE-NOVEL.ORG

    Not to get into an argument, but perhaps these links below can give you the Creatonist responses you want:

    Yup, more bizarre mental gymnastics to substantiate a 6,000 year old earth that doesn’t make a lick of sense. There’s no overriding logic to the arguments other than to say no to science, you know the old “certainty without any proof”. In fact, it sounds a lot like the Republican party with all of their no’s lately.

    Cheers,
