Lord this is funny stuff. So the long story short is, scientists find a single, solitary whale skeleton with some armored plates lying nearby. None of the other whale skeletons they found had these plates, but still some evolutionists engage in a fantasy of “armoured whales” until some more reasonable scientists smack them back down to earth because the idea that whales evolved from armoured predators was not in line with accepted evolutionist dogma. I wonder how many other reconstructed fossils are really conglomerates of different animals that other scientists did not bother to debunk because they conveniently fit the current evolutionary thinking?
Reminds me of PT Barnum’s mermaid, which turned out to be the top of a monkey sewn to the bottom of a fish.
And before anyone flames me, this book was a Hugo award winner.
