The Antarctic Ice Fish
[quote author=“George Benedik”]I am definitely getting this book!
This is what I found on Amazon.com:
For example, the Antarctic ice fish today has no red blood cells; yet a fossilized gene for hemoglobin remains in its DNA, showing that the fish has adapted over 55 million years by losing the red blood cells that thicken blood and make it harder to pump in extreme cold. The fish has developed other features that allow it to absorb and circulate blood without hemoglobin…
What a splendid idea (discovery)! A fossilized gene as a proof of evolution. I wonder what a creationist would have to say to that. “Well, the (fossilized) hemoglobin gene forms part of the fish’s DNA because…..”, because what? :twisted:
I remember reading about this unusual fish in the September/October issue of Skeptical Inquirer. It’s a fascinating read.
