No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, therefore he/she desires to be available that in detail, thus that thing is maintained over here.

Can anyone verify this research with sources? When using a blog such as this one, the sources are important. In order to use this information it would be great to have some alternate sources

Interesting article; can you tell me which of the 400+ species of Stomatopoda was used as the representative 'squilloid' in the line drawing? It would seem that comparing species to species would be most scientific. Also, does anyone know if any fossils of Stomatopods have been found that include a fine detail impression of the eye? That would be interesting to compare, from an evolutionary standpoint.

Reading this made me think back to our conversation about Creationist thinking during a hike with the lab on Old Rag Mountain. I hadn't realized that it's something you actually deal with in your own field of research! Great article! ~Margaret

Thanks for the post, I really don’t know where to begin except to say for something to live so long ago and to have evolved, adapted or whatever you choose to call it has lived till present day is a sign of both God and evolution. For the Creationists out there: Stop being so close minded, is it not so farfetched to think that if God created the earth and created all of the living things in the earth after his intelligent design that he would not allow them to evolve to keep pace with the ever changing environment that they live in? What sense does it make to try and argue that a Mantis shrimp is the same as it was 350 mya when it clearly does not look the same? What point are you making? Because it’s not that God exists. I can’t find in the bible anywhere that it says that evolution is wrong, so is it a possibility maybe just a small one that you have forgot the real reason that you believe in creationism and are all wrapped up in the hoopla that is going around. Be a pillar of society like JESUS not a cum stain. Accept people for what they believe and allow people to choose what they want to believe instead of forcing your ways on them and maybe just maybe they might give you the time of day to talk to them about why you believe what you believe. For the Evolutionists: you know what it is like to be looked down on, casted out, sneered at, mocked, judged and laughed at, and you remember how dumb, ridiculous and close-minded you thought those arrogant, self righteous people looked and sounded. Don’t take up the same attitude of disgust because it doesn’t matter if you have the cure for eternal life no one will listen, look at how you view creationists and our snake oil. Learn from the Christian pitfalls and let your facts speak for you not your pompous attitudes. I apologize for the way my people (creationists) oppress and propagate your views of the world. It saddens me to see that we seem to spend more and more time putting energy and intellect into hating the other side of our realm instead of joining forces and really making leaps and bounds in both science and religion. Mr. Bok- we need more like you. Even though you do not have the same belief system as I do you still respected it and for that I thank you, you could have easily bashed and thrashed but you stated the facts and let them speak on your behalf. You have a magnificent blog and I hope that you continue on your quest in the scientific community. you are a inspiration, it is refreshing to see someone who is so emerged in their craft. As for my snake oil it works for me, but that doesn’t mean that I’m gonna force you to take it as well, it here for the taking but only if you ask. And ahhh its ahh great way to stay in shape.

I had never see that slipper lobster plate before, by Harun Yahya's 'Atalas of Creation' is infamous for its taxonomy fails.

This post is superb, you said it so well! It reminds me something I saw a couple of month : Creationists are bad taxonomists : here they confound slipper lobsters with mantis shrimps... And then say that the fossil evidence show no difference between current and past slipper lobster. Take a look at the picture here, you'll see a picture of a current slipper lobster (probably picked up from wikipedia without respecting CC-BY-SA licence) and a fossil... I think you'll recognize this arthropod in a glance : it's a stomatopod, Pseudosculda laevis (Schlüter 1872)... Even with the poor quality of the picture, the two characteristic thoracopods are easy to find. The last paragraph is really beautiful, since it's quite how I feel during my job experience in invertebrates palaeontology... And every day I learn more exciting things, from the fossils, or from the literature.

Luckily their snake oil never passes in scientific circles. That leaves them with a cultural movement, that they unfortunately try to force into science classes.
