As we were taught in Biology, mammals and birds are warm-blooded; reptiles and fish are cold-blooded. But now scientists have discovered that the opah, a deep-water fish, is warm-blooded! From Warm-blooded fish traps its own heat in the deep – BBC News: The large and colourful opah has become the first known “warm-blooded” fish, as [Read More…] . . . Read All
Researchers say it took four separate steps to develop the ability to glide through the air. Researchers believe that an extinct flying fish may help resolve questions on how modern flying fish “evolved” their ability to glide through the air. But the scientists admit much yet remains to be discovered before this riddle can be solved. There is little in the fossil record that has proven helpful.Modern flying fish are called exocoetids. They are famous for leaping out of water to glide through the air with their long, winglike fins. It is assumed they do this to avoid predators. However, extinct flying fish known as thoracopterids also “evolved” the ability to glide, say the scientists. These ancient fish developed . . . Read All
But many Christians see an atheistic motivation behind the space program.Even with the first successful landing of a spacecraft on a comet, which occurred last week, many Christians are less interested in exploring space than is the general population. This is the conclusion of a paper presented by Dayton professor Joshua Ambrosius at this year’s Society for the Scientific Study of Religion gathering. Ambrosius discovered that the more often a person attends church, the less interested he is in supporting the exploration of space. Evangelical Protestants were found to be more opposed to space exploration than are Roman Catholics.Writer Jonathan Merritt discusses three “bad” reasons many Christians are against the practice. 1. Christians need to overcome their “knee-jerk” . . . Read All

John 6 “Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand” with guest Rev. Nathan Meador of St. John Lutheran Church in Plymouth, Wisconsin.
Scientists claim six groups of fish independently evolved electricity-generating organs.Scientists say they have used genetic studies to discover how electric fish developed organs capable of unleashing electricity. The researchers last Thursday revealed the genetic blueprint of the South American electric eel, a fearsome fish capable of delivering a jolt of up to 600 volts.Although six groups of electric fish seem to have “evolved” independently of each other in widely separated areas of the world, from the Amazon to marine environments, they all seem to have created their electricity-generating organs using the same “genetic toolbox.” They all use the same genes and biological pathways in building these organs from skeletal muscle, even though the location of these electric organs . . .

But the story seems to have more to do with camouflage than evolution.Summary: New research involving the Pacific leaping blenny shows how this amazing fish was able to “evolve” into a land animal without legs. The two-to-three inch (four-to-eight cm) blenny lives on the intertidal rocks on the island of Guam, mating, nesting and living there on a diet of algae and detritus.Its most interesting characteristic is how it will hop across rocks and try to hide in rock holes and crevices. “Their body shape has changed just enough to make them poor swimmers, so it’s better for them to try and find a hiding place on land,” said Terry Ord, an ecologist at Australia’s University of . . .

An 18-foot sea serpent found this week off the California coast makes us wonder about the ocean’s secrets. Summary: Staff and students at a Southern California school were in for quite a surprise when they spotted an 18-foot-long serpentlike sea monster on the ocean floor in 20 feet of water. It took 25 people to lift the bony creature with reddish fins out of the ocean before the group posed for photographs with their discovery.The animal has been identified as an oarfish. Not much is known about oarfish because they tend to live deep in the ocean. Scientists do know they can grow to be twice as long as the creature which was discovered. The huge fish has gotten . . .
