Kenneth R Miller: Seals, evolution, and the real 'missing link' | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk
We found another 'missing link' this month. Or, to be more precise, a team of Canadian and American scientists found a missing link between modern seals and their land-dwelling ancestors. A report in this week's Nature magazine described fossils of an extinct land-dwelling animal, now called Puijila darwini, discovered in the Canadian arctic. Its remarkable skeletal structure provides a spectacular demonstration of how evolution modified the limbs of a land-dwelling animal to produce the flippers of modern seals and sea lions.
I am sure evolution is true as science, but I don't like it. It makes the physical world evil.
There really should be a modernization of Zoroastrian (or other) dualism that accepts the reality of the physical world, but which, like the squire in The Seventh Seal, says to nature, " I yield, but I do not submit."
