An example of such a structure would probably need to be a saltation of some kind. For example a pegasus. Horses only have four appendages and it would not be evolutionarily possible for them to evolve wings on their backs.

Re: How do we decide on the origins of certain strctures?

When studying evolution, how do scientists decide that certain features in modern organisms were modifications of other organs in their ancestors? For example, how do we know that the antennae and mouthparts of arthropods are actually modified appendages / limbs? As another example, consider feathe...

Re: creation

we all know that DNA stores information required for synthesis of various proteins and thus for the life... who actually gave it the information? [who encoded it] There was no "who." The original self-replicating molecule may have been RNA, which can act as its own enzyme. DNA and genes c...

Re:

contradicting? Im just trying to get some feed back on how people feel about the subject of intelligent design vs evolution. How is that contradicting? I think the way you worded the first sentence of the O.P. can be misleading. I think you meant that teaching Intelligent Design in addition to evol...

Re: measurement of photosynthesis rate +-red filter in elodea

Hi, I did a lab today in which I measured the oxygen evolution rate in Elodea in the presence/absence of a red filter. I would like to know if a lower oxygen evolution in the presence of a red filter as shown by my experiments is the correct way to go for the lab report. The lab manual also does no...

Re: Ancestor or Contemporary?

I don't understand how paleontologists determine if a species, known only from fossils, is a direct ancestor of a modern species, or just a contemporary of the true ancestor. For example, how can they tell that Lucy's species is a direct ancestor of human species? It is rather difficult to determin...

Re: Any SOLID arguments against evolution?

I have read most of the posts, and have kind of concluded there is a root problem between the Creationists and the Evolutionists. Here it is: Evolutionists say that creationism is only a religion while saying that evolution is fact, while the truth is that they are both legitimate science. I believ...
