Frog Evolution Mystery


Originally published in Creation 15, no 4 (September 1993): 19.

This quotation illustrates one of evolution's many unanswered questions.

‘The origins of the modern Amphibia, such as frogs, has been the subject of considerable debate, a fact indicating the difficulty involved in tracing their ancestry back to the early Amphibia that roamed the earth, and also to the fish stocks from which they, in turn, had evolved.

‘ Just when and how the first frogs evolved remains unknown.’
