Spiritually speaking, if Coelacanths lived 375 million years ago, why are there still Coelacanths?

    I don't think the answer to your question is pro or con for evolution.

    If you are arguing in favor of evolution, why didn't coelacanths evolve into something else.

    If you are arguing in favor of creationism, then why don't dinosaurs of one kind or another still exist? If they were all created by God in 6 days, so why aren't more of them still around?

    specific, besides the shown fact that Tyrannosauridae (the kinfolk of which Tyrannosaurus Rex became into one member) have been around for longer. Fish: It became into between sixty 8 and sixty 5 million years in the past. The inhabitants survived for 3 million years. as an instance, you in all danger have been alive in the process the era between 1990 and 2008 (if not extra). Does that mean that we will no longer wisely choose your age interior 18 years? No. It potential you have been alive in the process all of those years. this is the comparable with the inhabitants of Tyrannosaurus Rex.

    Okay, I don't know if anyone's ever explained this to, but it's not the same Coelacanth.

    Modern fish are descended from ancient fish. Large evolutionary changes only occur when populations suffer environmental attrition.

    This is why there are species such as silverfish, cockroaches, and alligators, which have remained very much the same for hundreds of millions of years.

    Simple. They managed to survive and adapt to their new environment.

    Because they were, and are, highly successful in their little niche.

    Evolution retires failures and rewards successes. That's how it works. (unconsciously, of course).

    And speciazation made that possible.

    The age given is wrong, try 6,000 years and you will be a lot closer.
