What are you babbling about ######? What thread? Is it forbidden here to make fun of Meyers and Christine but it is reccomended to denigrate "Javison" in every post however you like? Calm down and go observe your colorful fish-ancestors in aquarium.

At my day job one of my duties is to feed the fish in the lounge(appropriately name The Aquarium Lounge).  Consequently I get to watch fish for a fairly substantial amount of time.  One of the cool things is watching them 'walk' around.  Now I know they are ray finned and not lobe finned fish(Sir Ichy I may need you to confirm this) but I watch them use their pectoral fins to move across the sandy/pebbly bottom.  Watching this leaves me in no doubt that limbs originated in something similar among the ancestors of these fish.

Sincerely,
Paul
