Why does every Fox article have to trot out a Biblical metaphor?

Oh, yeah, so the readers can grasp it.

If sponges became human, why are there still sponges? Shouldnt they all have made it to the people level by now? Or at least become something as good as horses or whatever.

Checkmate eviloutionists.

Well, if the current crop of young people is any suggestion, then we are evolving back in to sponges as well.

So the bible is wrong and Spongebob Squarepants is a documentary?

Interdasting...

Well, that explains why both would be so stupid as to make one's brain cells turn to sludge and ooze out your facial orifices.

Perhaps, but it's not uncommon if some organism is found from which we all descend to call it Eve (or Adam, I presume?). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitochondrial_Eve  http://www-personal.umich.edu/~wolpoff/Papers/Case%20against%20Eve.pd f

It's at least refreshing to see articles like this on Fox. It doesn't even include a phrase like "others believe [insert thinly veiled creationism]".

Animals without backbones hid from each other, or fell down.  Clamasaurs and oysterettes appeared as appetizers.  Then came the sponges, which sucked up about ten percent of all life.

Hundreds of years later, in the late Devouring Period, fish became obnoxious....

This isn't new, or news.

Why does Fox think this is new/s? Why does subby?

"It is widely accepted that the first terrestrial animals evolved from marine species."

Well of course. Without the sponges in the ocean soaking up all that water, there wouldn't be any dry land.
