I've been re-watching the debate and I just saw the part about transitional creatures. I must be confused about what exactly a transitional creature is, because I've seen with my own eyes a fish turn into a land animal. It actually happens quite quickly. Starts as a normal little fish and swims around and acts like a fish, eats like a fish, and breathes thru gills like a fish, and no one would deny it's definitely a fish. Then back legs pop out but it still looks like a fish. Then the front legs pop out and the tail starts to shrink. Most amazing of all is the gills disappear and it grows lungs, and before you know it, there is no longer a fish and you have a frog. Is this not a transitional creature? These little fish go thru a complete and total transition and turn into a land animal. Is this not evolution in fast forward? If evolution doesn't exist, then what is this? How do theists and creationists explain why fish can turn into frogs? How about catapillars that turn into butterflies, or maggots that turn into flies? Why are these not considered "transitional creatures"
