Why do athesists insist that men evolved from fish?
After reading all the "evidence" i still don't see how you go from point A to point Z. There are too many missing points in-between. For instance, by what exact process does a fish go from having gills to breathe under water to having lungs to breathe air? Is there any known life form that has both gills and lungs? Please let me know, thanks.

Accepting ANY evidence is difficult or impossible for those whose religion forbids it so I won't give a lengthy explanation here... More

Because they don't believe in the Creator. Simple.

Most of Ohio's 24 species of salamanders belong to either the Lungless Salamander family (Plethodontidae) or the Mole Salamander family (Ambystomatidae). Some salamanders retain gills throughout life. Others have both gills and lungs. Some start with gills and later develop lungs... More

They have a spirit of delusion because they have hardened their hearts to the truth.

Actually there are several species of fish that do live out of water for extended periods. Then there are those darned amphibians that need water to survive and reproduce, but can live on land.

Ultimately, it's irrelevant whether you "see" how it happens or not. People many times smarter than you and me DO see how it happens.

Fish? I think they meant to say that all life originated in the oceans. Anyway, about those 'missing' points, scientists have not had enough time to uncover all the secrets of evolution, we've only been on the earth for a few thousand years, and there is only a handful people studying billions of years of evolution.

First of all, this has been going on for perhaps 4 billion years. Secondly, there is no "jump" from gills to lungs. There are many intermediate steps, and these intermediate steps ALSO have functions... More

That would be called Evolutionist and that would be genetic mutation.

What do atheists have to do with biological science??? Yes, a whole class of vertebrates called amphibians live as fish and breathe through gills when they are young, but live as terrestrial or semi-terrestrial forms and breathe with lungs as adults.

better yet they believe we came from no living material. which is impossible to do.science has tried for 50 years to produce life THEY CAN'T. and even if they did they put intelligence behind it.this is not evolution ; time,chance. no intelligence.

It went from fish, to amphibians, to reptiles, to mammals. I won't detail it all to you, since I do not have all the answers, but that's how it basically went. I'm sure if you ask this in the proper section (biology) you will get a much more satisfactory response.

You will get no sound answers here from these people , their truths and theories change daily with their science Thank God His word and He never changes ! What God thinks about their wisdom .. Romans 1:22- Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

Technically, while not all Lungfish have lungs, they can breather air and water, although there is a species of lungfish that does have primitive lungs and it must breathe air or it will die, it also has primitive legs to suspend it out of the water... More

Point A and point B are one generation apart. So it's really point 1 to point 9x10^129, rather than point a to point z.

No one can insist anything of the sort until someone travels back in time and video tapes it. Then all the arguing will be over. We will either have evolution documented or God will be appearing on Larry King.

Quit wondering and take a college level biology class. Heck, even a high school biology class should be able to fill in those 'holes' for you. Quit thinking "this is so confusing... god must have done it."

It is not to say that man came directly from fish, but it is generally known that all life started in the oceans and moved on to land from there. Even Genesis tells you that. There is a creature called a lungfish you might want to look up.
Answered By: Ray G - 9/24/2008
They don't. Atheism is not about evolution. It's just a lack of belief in God. Period. They don't need an explanation for this. You do.
