Your Inner Fish

Another fantastic book all should read. “Your Inner Fish” by Neil Shubin.

http://www.amazon.com/Your-Inner-Fish-Journey-3-5-Billion-Year/dp/0307277453/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1253110873&sr=1-1

Neil Shubin first takes you out into the field to discover fossils of ancient creatures. He notes some of the most recent finds as well as new interpretations of some older finds that had been collecting dust on the shelves. He shows how these fossils even from the time before vertebrates indicate patterns which we, as humans, share in our own bodies. Even the lowly worm shows how it is connected to humanity by it’s structures, it’s various organs, and how they are constructed. He travels through the long road of evolution to today’s vast store of genetic information which reinforces the notion that every form of animal life on this planet is intimately connected.

Granted, this is a book for those who accept Evolution’s reality. For those seeking further reinforcement it is a must read.
