I seem to recall that your conclusion -- that the embryonic phases like the fish-like
one support evolution on some scale -- is spurious. I mean, doctors studying biology
before the common era have been looking at miscarriages and surmising that we
were higher on the hierarchy of animals because we can see fish-phase, lizard-phase
I don't know much about embryonic development and what these phases entail, I
just remember that the 'we can see our evolutionary history in embryos' claim was
not well respected.
Or I could be totally inventing a memory!
