ARCHAEOPTERYX:-Archaeopteryx is a bird and means 'ancient wing'. It is sometimes used to prove the evolution of birds from reptiles. "Birds and their alleged dinosaurial ancestors, however, have been found to have coexisted." ... Duane T. Gish,-Evolution: The Fossils Say No, (1995). Archaeopteryx is sometimes called a hoax. Archaeopteryx is not a hoax, but it is not a transitional fossil either, except in the minds of those possessing an extremely fertile imagination. It is rather, just a bird! Archaeopteryx also did not have reptile like teeth, but rather, uniquely bird like teeth, similar to teeth found in other fossil birds, that of, unserrated (not notched on the edge like a saw) teeth in constricted bases and expanded roots.
    Science Journal, (1993), page 259, "Archaeopteryx probably can't tell us much about the origin of feathers and flight in true protobirds (proto is Greek for 'first in time'), because archaeopteryx was in a modern sense, a bird." 
    The DNA of frogs, snakes, etc. is different from birds. Archaeopteryx appears abruptly in the fossil record, with fully formed wings and feathers in a design common in birds we see today. An evolutionary expert in statistical probability, Pierre Lecomte du Nouy in Human Destiny (1947), Longmaus, Green and Co., New York, "We are not even authorized to consider the exceptional case of Archaeopteryx as a true link. By link, we mean a necessary stage of transition between classes such as reptiles and  birds, or between smaller groups. An animal displaying characters belonging to two different groups cannot be treated as a true link as long as the intermediary stages have not been found, and as long as the mechanisms of transition remain unknown." Newsweek Magazine, November 3, 1980, in an article regarding evolutionists at a Chicago conference "Evidence from fossils now points overwhelmingly away from the classical Darwinism which most Americans learned in high school."
    Other evolutionists also have doubts about Archaeopteryx. "The tail bone and feather arrangement on swans are very similar to those of Archaeopteryx." ... Darwin's Enigma, 4th edition, Luther D. Sunderland, Master Books, Santee, California, page 74. (1988)
    Evolutionists need to graduate from elementary school conjectural reasoning  – 'hmm, its got eyes, legs, a nose, ears, it eats, produces waste, sleeps, mates and cares for offspring; humans got eyes, legs, a nose, ears, we eat, produce waste, sleep, and we mate and care for offspring; therefore humans must have evolved from 'em, cause humans are more intelligent'...although, and wouldn't you know it, some are sure it's the other way around Ha ha! 
    Some 'scientists' avoid considering quantitative-scientific- DNA evidence. In addition, some of these 'scientific' evolutionists infer behavior from observing anatomy, which has proved perilous – if it walks upright like a man, has a mouth like a man, behaves like a man in many aspects, then man must have sprung from it. Such is the pseudo scientists' reasonings. Hey! That's as bad as inferring that since a cruise ship has a propellor, and so also does a bacterial flagellum, the ship probably evolved from the bacteria.
    Nature provides such diversity. Not all fish have teeth. Some amphibians have them. Some don't. Most mammals have teeth, but not all. Some reptiles have short tails. Others long.

ICE AGE:-Joe Kirschviak, a specialist in paleomagnetism at Caltech, in a recent New Scientist Magazine, (3rd week, November, 1999) asks of an early global glaciation "What could have triggered this? Why are there so few periods in the past when Earth went white?"
     If it had, Soviet climate modeler M.I. Budyko says "Ice reflects sunlight, cooling the earth, allowing more ice to grow. This feedback becomes unstoppable, and the whole planet freezes up in just a few decades." But we are here, so then that obviously could not have happened?
     "Geologist Paul Colinvaux of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama reported that pollen trapped in sediment cores from Amazonian lakes showed that the nearby tropical rainforest has remained intact for at least 40,000 years, well into the time the Pleistocene ice age might have shriveled the forest." ... New Scientist Magazine, November 20, 1999.
    Basically, the well known yet baffling worldwide subtropical climatic evidence (rocks)-alludes to conditions prior to the great flood, set in motion by the then prevalent atmospheric conditions enabling the trapping of solar radiation -Genesis 2:5,6.
    Once this ancient greenhouse effect was dissipated, worldwide climate became drastically altered. Atmospheric circulation began then and ice caps at the poles formed. The world's weather was never the same again.
    The book-The Genesis Flood-on page 288 provides additional information.

SPOTTED EAGLE RAYS:-have specialized dental plates to crush hard shelled oysters, clams, etc. Their cousins the Sting rays are often used as frisbees.

FROGS:-How does a frog know he's a frog, thus acting as a frog? Why doesn't he think he's a bird?
    How does a frog know to avoid permanent bodies of water, which may contain fish, and consequently pose a threat to the eggs it disperses to make new little froggies? The tadpoles of some species take as long as two years to develop.-...continues
