    And yes, they simply "are there" because those are the forms we once held. Changes in DNA are not just simply "no more gills, lungs now" It's "gills for breathing" "lungs for breathing" "remove gills because lungs for breathing" The reason we still have those primitive parts is because evolution builds upon what we start with. When we gained lungs the coding for gills was not removed, a segment of coding was just added further down the line which basically says "alright the gills which were created earlier have to go"

    Besides, why would God have us form gills and a tail during part of our development?

    like i said before:
    the "gills" your talking about are just extra folds of skin that happen to look like gills. they hold no real function, and there is nothing between or on them to sugest that they ever did. that myth was just some stupid scientist jumping to conclusions.

    Well of course they never actually function, while the fetus is inside the mother it doesn't need to breath with lungs or gills, it's oxygen is supplied by the placenta.

    thats not what i said.

    they never accually form at all.

    it's just folds of skin overlapping. look at a fat guy on weightwatchers and you'll see the same thing. does that mean he can breathe underwater?
