The Way It Was by Kelly L. Segraves

 A Word About Whales

The whale is a mammal, warm blooded, air breathing, and gives birth to its young alive. The baby sperm whale is 14 feet long at birth. Immediately it must be pushed to the surface to breathe; otherwise, it will drown. It drinks milk directly from its mother, approximately 1 1/2 tons of milk a day. Because the whale is a mammal, it cannot be directly related to a fish. Try to explain the whale’s existence by the process of evolution.

Once upon a time, little sea creatures somehow developed vertebrae or back bones and became fish. These fish decided they did not like it in the water and so they evolved off their front fins into legs, developed hind legs and changed their tail fins into a long thin tail. Their breathing apparatus changed from gills to slits to noses and they became amphibians and somehow developed the ability to stop laying soft jelly-like eggs. Then somehow these amphibians became reptiles, changing various important bones in their ears and jaws. The reptiles somehow changed to become mammals. These mammals did not like it on the land and decided they wanted to go back to the sea. So they somehow evolved off their hind legs, changed their front legs into fins. evolved the dorsal fin, changed their long thin tails into a tail fin, changed their breathing apparatus from their noses to the blow hole on top of their heads, and returned to the sea becoming dolphins and whales. Somewhere in this process they picked up their amazing sonar ability.

We now have a problem because there are too many ancestors, too many links to follow and no evidence that this process ever took place.
