This program about rays that usually live in areas near the ocean floor tells a self-contradicting evolutionist story. First it gives an evolutionist explanation of the origin of rays: “Despite the fact that rays and sharks, their close relatives, began long ago to evolve in a different manner, they are among the most successful sea creatures”. A few minutes later, it says that rays have not changed for almost 150 million years.
Discovery Channel claims that present-day rays began to evolve much longer than 150 million years ago because there is almost no difference between them and fossils from that period. But it is acknowledged that such an evolution has not been observed. Under these circumstances, it is clear that Discovery Channel blindly accepts the claim that rays have evolved.
It is certainly more reasonable to accept that evolution is an imaginary process than to try to explain the origins of rays in terms of a supposed evolutionary process that has not affected them in 150 million years.2003-04-22 00:00:00
