I guess it never dawned on these folks that God created us? Some people will never get a clue. I don't think I have webs on my fingers because I evolved from a frog. We are each unique and have different genetic makeup. I started to grow body hair in my late teens, and now am covered with it, but still have a very light beard. On the other hand, I have seen many with heavy beards and hardly a hair below the neck. Isn't He marvelous the way each of us is made the same, but yet unique?

And just because WE KNOW the universe is 13+ billion year old universe does not mean there is no God - as some here would have you believe.

I guess it never dawned on you that one of two things happened.
1) On or about 4464 BC, in accordance with Bishop Ussher's calculations, God created the world, pretty much as it is today. With tons of internal evidence pointing towards a very different date, OR
2) God created the Universe some 15 or so billion years ago, and engineered and shaped it to bring it to the state it is in today. Remember, OUR time scale and God's time scale are vastly different (hint: Psalm 90:4 and II Peter 3:8 ).
Frankly, as an engineer, I find the case for the second alternative more compelling. Not to mention that it's the more elegant solution. The Lord has posed many puzzles to Man, and by solving them from the evidence He left, we've progressed from the caves to where we are now. And we're not out of puzzles to solve, by a long shot. . . .

Well, my take on this article is this. The pictures at the top are captioned to show conventional wisdom, not stated as fact, also the webbing comment is refering to a theory that has benn around for a few decades, that our ancestors were in a tight spot, and lived in the water for a while (many generations)--the evidence supporting this theory is webbing, lack of body hair and fatty "blubber" layer under the skin. They obviously left the semi-aquatic lifestyle long ago. And nowhere here does it try to say you were evolved from a frog.
