BBC News published an article on April 27, 2017, entitled: “Why fish do not deserve their reputation for forgetfulness.” Let’s examine some quotes from this article:
“This widely-held belief may persist due to… an old-fashioned view of how evolution works.”
“Most of the fish on the planet today evolved around the same time as humans.”
“The fish’s performance… could be compared to that of rats.”
“Fish’s ability to track depth makes them ‘superior to humans’ in this respect.”
“Fish can use tools – a skill once thought to belong exclusively to humans.”
“In a sense… is performing ballistics calculations.”
“Can also discriminate between human faces.”
“Like birds, fish can distinguish between quantities.”
“Clearly impressive brainpower evolved long before humans.”
Wait a minute! Fish are supposedly lower on the evolutionary ladder. How do they have so much complexity, etc.? In some ways, they are superior to creatures higher on the evolutionary ladder. How can this be?
Because Darwinian or macro-evolution is false – blatantly untrue.
“And God said, ‘Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.’ So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:20-21)
God designed and directly created all kinds of creatures that live in the water, and they reproduce “according to their kinds.”
While evolutionists formerly looked down on the sea creatures as being stupid, now they are learning they themselves were the dumb ones, after all. Too bad they didn’t pay attention to the Bible:
“How countless are your works, Yahweh, all of them you made so wisely! …the sea, with its vast expanses, teeming with countless creatures.” (Ps 104:24-25 NJB)
