“While modern snakes and lizards are derived from a common evolutionary ancestor, they belong today to two entirely separate groups of animals, or orders. Snakes, over millenia, gradually lost their limbs and developed their characteristic forms of locomotion. But modern limbless lizards are not snakes, Dutta said.”
“The other limbless lizards belonging to different families have been found in India's Nicobar island, in the northeast, and in Orissa and Andhra Pradesh states, he said.”
So apparently what we have is over millions of years a single species developed into two separate species namely snakes and lizards. Then over millions of years lizards kept their limbs, where the snakes lost them (of course scripture says snakes were cursed and lost them). Now we find that some lizards have lost their limbs.
I just wonder how they feel about Mother Nature doing that to them after all these millions of years.
I also wonder why macroevolution would consider just a mouth more “survival of the fittest” than a mouth and limbs. Hmmm….
I also find it interesting that they claim there are limbless lizards, but as for this new one found, they say it is a “new species”. So we have already found limbless lizards before, but we find 1 (one) new limbless lizard and instantly it is a “new species”. Maybe it is just a genetic abnormality.
