Darwin invented unbelievable scenarios regarding the illusory development of living things, but found it no easy task to account for ocean-dwelling mammals like the whale. This life form could not be located anywhere on the imaginary tree of life that Darwin imagined. For that reason, he put forward another unbelievable theory, suggesting that whales were descended from bears that had used to hunt along the sea shore. This claim—a source of embarrassment even for Darwin’s own supporters—was logically bankrupt. Present-day bears and fossils of bears dating back millions of years have done away with this claim of Darwin’s. The two look exactly the same. Bears 55 million years ago had no arms beginning to turn into fins or legs developing into flukes. Bears have remained completely unchanged for millions of years.
