The Coelacanth is an ancient fish once thought extinct. There are only two remaining species of this genus around today. Morphological and DNA evidence suggests that coelacanths are more closely related to salamanders than to a guppy.
“To put it bluntly but fairly, anyone today who doubts that the variety of life on this planet was produced by a process of evolution is simply ignorant—inexcusably ignorant, in a world where three out of four people have learned to read and write.”
~ Daniel C. Dennett, Darwin's Dangerous Idea: Evolution and the Meanings of Life
