Getting on a bit. A Coelacanth - not seen here

Crackpot evolutionists are today pulling their hair out following the annoying news that a new Coelacanth fossil has been discovered.

The Coelacanth is already a particular pain in the evolutionists bottom as it is still alive and well today. The aquatic marvel was believed to be extinct, and is claimed to have been around for some 400 millions years - until they were discovered to be very much alive and unevolved in 1938.

The latest fossil discovery puts the Coelacanth back a whopping 17 million years. This might not sound much if you read it quickly, but when you consider that modern man is outlandishly claimed to have split from his primate ancestors only 2-3 million years ago it gives yet more increduability to the evolution myth. If you believe the evolution tale, 17 million years ago, your family would have been well and truly Gibbons.

We spoke to our resident actual scientist on this matter "I don't need to comment on this. The figures speak for themselves. You merely need to consider that we are meant to have evolved and this creature has stayed the same for now 417 million years, to understand that evolution is dead in the water. Unlike the Coelacanth."

Richard Dawkins was unavailable for comment. He is believed to have stormed out from his palacial home and gone on a Coelacanth fishing expedition.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
