Re: Polar Bear Challenge for AAH opponents

I fail to see how the burden of proof should lie with the opponents of the
AAH. From my experiences with human osteology and anatomy, I would have
to (accurately?) say that there are many more similarities between humans
and terrestrial creatures (Pan trogolodytes) than there are between humans
and aquatic creatures (polar bear?). If my assumption that we more resemble
chimps and other terrestrial creatures than we do aquatic creatures is
correct, then I think the burden of proof would lie with the proponents
of the AAH. I also agree with Phil Bigelow, in that, it is basically
pointless to argue over an issue that is impossible to prove.
