Fish Forsakes Fins in Favor of Arms

first_imgA crucial fossil palaeontologists are hailing as a true “missing link” in the evolutionary record has been uncovered in the arctic.  The discovery of a well preserved species of fossil fish bridges the gap between finned fish and their four legged relatives.  This croco-fish creature, documented in Nature,1 named Tiktaalik roseae has joints in its front arms and can prop itself up like a crocodile, yet has the jaw and balancing fins of a more primitive fish.  The front fins are well on their way to becoming limbs, having the internal skeletal structure of an arm, including elbows and wrists, but with fins instead of fingers.  It seems as if we have “caught” a transition in the act.  Much of the weakness of the evolutionary theory rests on these gaps that are unaccounted for with fossil records; but at last, one such transformation is right before our eyes.  The creature would represent an evolutionary window about 380 – 360 million years ago, about the time it took sea dwelling fish to differentiate into land dwelling critters.  A remark by one palaeontologist perhaps steals some of the croco-fish’s thunder when he says, “Tiktaalik was probably an unwieldy swimmer, probably living in shallow waters, only hauling itself on land temporarily to escape predators.”1Daeschler, Edward B., Shubin, Neil H., Jenkins, Farish A. Jr., “A Devonian tetrapod-like fish and the evolution of the tetrapod body plan,” Nature, April 6, 2006: Vol. 440, p. 757-763, DOI: 10.1038/nature04639.Shubin, Neil H., Daeschler, Edward B., Jenkins, Farish A. Jr., “The pectoral fin of Tiktaalik roseae and the origin of the tetrapod limb,” Nature, April 6, 2006: Vol. 440, p. 764-771, DOI: 10.1038/nature04637.Why did fish, competent swimmers that they were, develop arms and legs and walk away?  This poses just a few questions to say the least.  Everyone seems to be in agreement that the fish would not immediately develop a sophisticated method of land locomotion and would thus remain rather ungainly on land for at least a few million years or so before the mechanism was refined.  Why then, would a creature at home in the sea forsake the very medium that sustained it, and venture out on land to become, pardon the pun, a true fish out of water?  As ungainly as they may have been in the water they would have been even more so out of the water, therefore how is this to be considered favorable?  Natural Selection, Darwin’s brainchild would seem to weed out these unfavorable mutations as opposed to propagating them.  Easy for us to come in a posteriori and tie the loose ends together; but to be completely honest, the fish did not decide it would be beneficial to walk on land and then determine to sprout arms.  I thought the Lamarckian ideas were thrown out years ago? How then do these undertones manage to still get incorporated into modern thought?—Lydia Bye(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Sarri hints at squad rotation

first_imgChelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has hinted at rotating his squad ahead of a busy run of matched both in the league and in Europe.The former Napoli manager, who has used the second least number of players this season, has revealed that he will possibly call on some of the club’s fringe players with the match roster about to get packed.“We have used 26 players in official matches [in all competitions] this season so the rotation at the moment is this, but I don’t know in the future,” said Sarri, according to LiveSoccer.Sacchi explains Sarri, Conte, and Ancelotti Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Arrigo Sacchi talked about how Sarri has a tougher time at Juventus than Conte at Inter; while Ancelotti’s “blood is boiling” at Napoli.Arrigo Sacchi…“If you look only in the Premier League the situation is that, you are right [only used 19 players] but I have to look at all competitions: 90 minutes are 90 minutes. You have to look at the League Cup, Europa League, and the national team.“I have to look also to the minutes in the national teams. So I think the rotation is good. Every moment was done only between the Europa League, League Cup, and Premier League but, in the future, it will be different.“If you look at December and January, you need to change also in the Premier League because we will play every three days in the Premier League. So we need to change in the Premier League.”last_img read more
