Fishy problem for those who believe in evolution

Published 03/10/2016

I am writing with regard to the ongoing 'Creation v Evolution' debate in your letters pages.

Readers may be interested to hear about the coelacanth, a fish that was thought to have been extinct for 65 million years - until fishermen caught one off Madagascar in 1938. More have been caught since.

The coelacanth would surely be 'lord of the universe' by now, if there was any mileage in 'evolution'.

Theories? Fantasies, more like.
