A fisherman in Indonesia has caught a Coelacanth, a fish that evolutionists believe is around 360 million years old. The Coelacanth was once heralded as the missing link between sea-dwelling creatures and mammals, for their fossils were thought to have shown well developed fins which enabled the fish to walk on land. Yustinus Lahama and his son caught the fish on Saturday, and took it home presumably to eat. But when someone told Yustinus that he had caught a rare fish, once believed by evolutionists to have walked on land, he took it back to a pool to try and keep it alive. Unfortunately the fish died, and a post-mortem revealed it didn't die from exhaustion from trying to "run" away from its captor. No, this fish doesn't have legs. In fact according to Grevo Gerung, a professor at the fisheries faculty at the Sam Ratulangi University, the fish can't even survive in shallow water for a long period of time.

Quote: ""If kept outside their habitat (60 meters or 200 feet below the sea), the fish can only live for two hours. But this fish lived for about 17 hours," Gerung told Reuters. "We will look into why it had lived that long," he said.

But note that according to the report, even though the fish can't walk, and it is not extinct as evolutionists had once claimed, the article still states that it is an ancient fish that lived over 360 million years ago. Who would you believe? I remember when I was young, taking a trip to the Belfast Museum with my mum and sister. We took a wrong turn and ended up walking down an old disused corridor. We were surprised to find a fossil Coelacanth in a glass case at the very end of the corridor. And it wasn't there because it had grown legs and was trying to escape, rather the evolutionists in the Belfast Museum were too embarrassed to admit that what they had taught thousands of visitors had been a complete fabrication.
