Fresh off the skinning of Paul over at Wizbang, I decided to poke around Google News for the latest evolution headlines.
Here's what I found:
In a stunning example of evolution at work, scientists have now found that changes in a single gene can produce major changes in the skeletal armor of fish living in the wild.This, of course, flies right in the face of what one commenter at Wizbang said.
The surprising results, announced in the March 25, 2005, issue of journal Science, bring new data to long-standing debates about how evolution occurs in natural habitats.
To paraphrase, he suggested that it's easy to believe that selection pressures might result in, say, a faster cheetah - but that a development like the arising of body armor was something else (nevermind that this is simply an argument from incredulity).
One more nail in the heads* of the anti-evolutionists.
Update: We can sit back and laugh with mocking derision at people like Paul all day long, but we really need to step up the political fight against their nonsense, particularly in light of a headline like this:
* I'd have said coffins, but maybe if we put some extra holes in their heads something might be able to sink in.
