A new species of water lily discovered this year helps prove the theory of evolution, a Manitoba scientist says.

“This species isn’t just new to Manitoba, it is a new species of plant that has evolved fairly recently,” said Diana Robson, the Manitoba Museum’s curator of botany. “Evolution isn’t just something that occurred in the past; it’s happening right now.”

Obviously God made it 6000 years ago but made it invisible until now to confuse the sciencey types like he made all of those dinosaur bones and stuff and buried them.

Interesting news, Shawn. I’d like more info on how they knew it was a (relatively) new species.
