Check out Comment #10 in the following thread at UD:  Stephen Meyer in Daily Telegraph

Well, fellow Evilutionists?  Are we ready to provide a step-by-step explanation for how a wingless mammal evolved into the albatross?  According to Dembski's Dittoheads, that's exactly what's necessary to explain the appearance of design in albatross wings.  So who's ready to go?

None of us have the ability to demonstrate how a species of bird evolved from a mammal.  Therefore, that bird must have been specially created.  No other possibility exists.  Clearly another astonishing win for ID.  Curses, we've been foiled again!

Okay, I'll be the first to say it:

if we're descended from albatrosses, how come we still have albatrosses??

I didn't know that we were supposed to be the ancestors of the albatrosses.  :0

I'm sorry, I got this backwards. I should have read more closely.
:angry:

Revised:

If albatrosses are descended from us, how come we still have us???

Actually LarrY Fafarman is the resident expert on albatrosses at the Panda's thumb - the fun started on the '1000' post thread:

although Larry's first reference to the Albatross was here.

In truth the 'Albatross around the neck' of the Intelligent Design Hoax are the fundies who just won't shut up.

Nice to see Dave Scot get another ban in on that thread by the way.
