    Further evidence why I just don't give credence to evolution. I still think the Coelacanth was one of the more awesome discoveries along this line.

    Don't even think about turning this into an evolution debate. :)

    Nope, no interest in that. :)  Just making a statement on what I think about it.

    and yet the modern one is alot different form its orginal ones in the fossil record.....

    i always like how some of the old biological designs have barely changed for some creatures at all over millions of years, like the sharks, they get big and small but their basic shape stays the same. times like these i love this planet.

    It just makes you realize that there is still so much that is undiscovered on this planet.

    Why can't they just say previously thought to be extinct. "Living fossil" is a bad description for anything less than a dead animal's fossilized bones magically coming back to life and go around terrorizing people. That would be cool.

    But why should something continue to evolve if it has found a habitat that hasn't changed so much that its basic design still works perfectly.
