When Eve screwed up and spoke to the snake in the Garden of Eden, it had legs. This is what the Bible tells us. Now scientists have described what they say is the first known fossil of a four-legged snake (which was hidden for decades) that stunned scientists (of course)—and is definitely igniting controversy. The world’s first 4 legged known snake discovered in Brazil, proves that snakes walked on foot, instead of crawling on their bellies. This is exactly what the Bible declared in Genesis 3:14, that snakes had legs. Here is the photo of the fossil showing obvious legs:
“Looks like a snake to me,” says Jacques Gauthier of the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University. “The long body and reduced limbs, along with the bony supports in the pelvis for lymph hearts to pump blood back to the heart, are consistent with being a snake,” he says.
The fossil had resided in a private collection for several decades before it gained the attention of team member David Martill of the University of Portsmouth. He stumbled across the specimen during a field trip with students to Museum Solnhofen in Germany. No notes about when or where it was collected are available, the researchers say. But certain characteristics of the limestone that entombed the fossil, as well as the distinct orange-brown color of the bones themselves, strongly suggest it came from a particular area of northeastern Brazil, Longrich says.
While the evolutionists claim that snakes came from marine lizards, the new discovery buries and debunks the old theory, and now they say that this suborder may have ‘evolved’ from burrowing, rather than marine, ancestors. In other words, the snake has always been a land creature that seem to have devolved to loosing its legs (while on land) and is in fact as scientists now conclude “an ancestor of modern-day snakes” which:
maintains many classic snake features, such as a short snout, long braincase, elongated body, scales, fanged teeth and a flexible jaw to swallow large prey. It also maintains the typical vertebrae structure seen in modern-day snakes that allows for the extreme flexibility required to constrict prey. The main, glaring difference is Tetrapodophis‘s four limbs
So the only difference between this ancient snake and the modern one is the legs.
While the scientific establishments are evolutionists they cannot deny that snakes ‘evolved’ from a four legged creature:
The snake (Tetrapodophis amplectus), described in the latest issue of the journal Science, is also the first known snake to have four limbs. This strongly suggests that snakes evolved from terrestrial lizards, and not from water-dwelling species, as had been thought before.
Wow, now evolutionists have to change their minds on this one, quickly.
With such discovery, now both evolutionists as well as the Bible believers agree that serpents originally had limbs. Pythons and boa constrictors have vestigial hind limbs so it is reasonable to conclude that they descended from a creature with some sort of hind limbs. According to the Bible, God commanded that the serpent would have to crawl on its belly (Genesis 3:14) for having deceived mankind:
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: (Genesis 3:14)
For decades skeptics questioned the biblical account. But when it comes to the snake, the only evolution is the evolving view of the evolutionists. Now no one can deny the biblical account: snakes had legs.
So what will they do now? According to them, the legs ‘disappeared’ as a result of ‘natural selection’ while the Bible says these legs disappeared because God cursed this creature for being possessed by satan when he deceived Eve.
In the past, the fossil evidence was vague and was met with much skepticism. One fossil, found in Lebanon, is from an era when snakes had not yet completely lost the hind limbs left by (as they believe) their lizard ancestors. The 19-inch-long (50 centimeter) snake (called Eupodophis descouensi) is one of only three snake fossils with its hind limbs preserved, but now with the new discovery of Tetrapodophis amplectus, there is no question that snakes had legs.
To say that snakes had legs is like saying that cows had wings. Had the Bible said that cows had wings, skeptics would have been laughing at believers for millenniums until of course, we find a fossilized cow with wings. The chances of this happening is nil. The question that begs an answer is how did Moses and Joshua (who are believed to have written Genesis) knew that snakes had legs? Remember, the ‘scientists’ tell us that the fossil is millions of years old.
There are only few answers: Moses was a fossil scientist or a perfect guesser or he had great connections with the Almighty. Everyone must choose wisely. I choose C.
