One of the problems I’ve always had with the theory of evolution: Supposedly all life originated in the oceans. The one group of amino acids that was spurred to organized metabolism by a lightning strike (much like Frankenstein’s monster)somehow somehow grew into differing types of cells with highly specialized purposes. And then, supposedly after millions of years that it took for this organism to complete its evolutionary process, it asexually reproduced. In effect cloning itself. This went on for millions of years, with subsequent versions of this life form evolving and modifying itself as its environment dictated. So, the life forms slowly evolved into different types of creatures (I don’t know why since their environment was identical for all.) They were bathed perpetually in a soup filled with every type of nourishment needed. They had no need for thermoregulatory mechanisms because their environment took care of it. Minimal energy was expended on locomotion and respiration. In other words, they were just about the perfect life form. But I’m supposed to believe that one day, one of them crawled out of the ocean for no reason and saw what was an inhospitable and alien environment and thought to himself, “I’ll just stay here-“ See how that sounds? But even if it stayed on land, it took millions of years for subsequent generations to develop respiratory systems capable of breathing air. I’m 60 years old. I have wonderful kids. But I can’t even get them to like the Three Stooges. Much less to grow gills.
