Does anyone know the current status of Tiktaalik (fishapod)? When it was first described, it was thought to be a transitional fossil sharing traits of both fish and tetrapods .  In a subsequent article it was no longer considered a transitional form. If anyone can give me any info I would appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

Too bad the Cowardly Agnostic posts disappeared.  I thought there were some very interesting comments.

Joseph P, I was not aware of the process of deleting remarks and the consequences. Thanks for the information.

Perhaps he dropped the last name from his profile or changed it entirely.  Lots of people do that.  Crap-loads of Daniels around here.

It was a discussion thread called, "Is Agnosticism cowardly or a cop-out?"  And, now it's gone.

I hate when people do that.  Yeah, he started the discussion thread, but the 30 or 40 comments that others added got nuked along with it.

It's like a discussion I was having with Michael Pianko, over in Atheist Singles.  It was a very productive conversation that others might have benefited from, and then he wiped all 20 or 30 posts he had made to the discussion thread, making my responses fairly meaningless.

Susan, thanks. 

Comment by Susan Stanko on October 21, 2012 at 3:20pm

Nope, not that Daniel.  Daniel Hunt.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 21, 2012 at 2:19pm

Susan, the only Daniel I know is Sentient Biped and the reason I asked was for more information. 

Comment by Susan Stanko on October 21, 2012 at 1:36pm

Maybe I just can't spell but, I didn't find Daniel in the members search.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 21, 2012 at 1:02pm

Joseph P, what happened?

Comment by Joseph P on October 21, 2012 at 12:43pm

Jeeze, Daniel, don't delete entire discussion threads, like that.  What the hell, man?  You just destroyed everything said on the subject, for anyone who was going to come along later and be enlightened by the discussion.
