Yeah, I think it is.
The hand of God may well be all around us, but it is not, nor can it be, the task of science to dust for fingerprints.

Flying fish are beyond cool.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Flying fishes glide over the surface of water so that they are not caught by sea predators but the birds find it easy to catch the flying fish when they are gliding.It is really beautiful to see the gliding .I have even eaten these fishes long before.I use to see those fins used for gliding which resemble a dragon flies wings.But believe me the dragon flies wings are really extraordinary and I think how could such aerodynamically engineered wings evolved extra light,low resistence,aerodynamical design most of all primitive.We will have to have a new topic to debate about the evolution of the dragonflies wings.
