The Coelacanth: "Living fossil?"

Let me introduce you to the Coelacanth, my personal candidate for the winner of the Most Repulsive Fish category. 
It is well represented in the fossil record. This fish was thought to be 400 Million years old --older than the dinosaurs--and to have gone extinct with the dinosaurs 65 million years ago (according to Darwinite uniformitarian materialists). 
That is, until some western paleontologists were strolling through a Madagascan fish market and found one – freshly caught! Actually, it didn’t just appear. It had been alive all the time. It was known to the local fishermen, who could tell the stunned researchers that this fish could only be caught at a depth of 700 feet and only at night.
Since then, many specimens have been caught, mainly off the island of Madagascar. It’s called a “living fossil” or “an evolutionary aberration.” What it really amounts to is another hole shot in the evolutionary propaganda by facts.
One of the arguments between those who accept creation by God and materialists/evolutionists is whether man and dinosaur co-existed--and here we have man and pre-dinosaur (again according to evolution) co-existing. 
The point is that their theory doesn’t line up with the facts. In any other area of inquiry, the theory would be thrown out. The fact that so many people cling to it verifies that people want a world where God has no part in it. It does nothing to lend credence to the theory.



This blog has been written with the sole purpose of using the ample evidence available to verify and support the biblical record, while refuting the copious propaganda that is shoved down our throats daily by materialistic uniformitarians.

It is my contention that the Bible describes God's original creation of people with extraordinary capabilities who subsequently built an advanced civilization that exceeds our own. That civilization was destroyed in the Great Flood and we have spent the last 5,000 years trying to re-build that civilization. I contend that science supports all this in multiple disciplines, but this information is ignored or suppressed by various people who have an opposing agenda.

Nothing that you see on this blog is original. Any fact that you see here is obtainable on a dozen different websites and books. I use these facts and photos, without violating their copyrights, under the legal principle of fair use practice. That is, I use them one time, for educational purposes only.

The point is, nothing here is made up. The only thing that I do (or need to do) is assemble this information in a discernible pattern.

You might want to read through the first entry posted on this blog (Past Remembering: Thoughts toward a coherent view of our ancient past, our present and our future) in order to understand my theoretical and theological underpinnings more clearly.

The truth is there. You just have to see it.

Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 (New American Standard Bible)

That which has been is that which will be,
And that which has been done is that which will be done.

So there is nothing new under the sun.

Is there anything of which one might say,

“See this, it is new”?

Already it has existed for ages

Which were before us.
