Evolution: The Evidence

It seems that some Chinese cats have taken the next step in their evolution.

    This isn’t really ‘evolution’…it’s an example of a pretty startling mutation that most likely won’t have any sort of effect on the organism (beneficial or harmful), but I doubt cats will have useless ‘wings’ ten thousand years from now.

    You really can’t say unless you have taken a spin on the DeLorean and went to the time of the flying cat…

    Still interesting, though.

    (Oh, and this definitely isn’t a transitional thing. As far as I’m aware, transitional forms are only identified retroactively; how else do you know what they’re a transitional form between?)

    My attempt at levity apparently escaped you…

    LOL, that could be interpreted in so many ways…

    It could indeed! For example, I found some truly ridiculous ‘information’ on evolution in the following:

    Particularly the comments. Every time I see someone praising Darwins’ Black Box, I get a splitting headache.

    I haven’t read the book.
