If Snakes Could Talk

A team of scientists led by Neil H. Shubin of the University of Chicago say they have uncovered several well-preserved skeletons of a 375-million-year-old fish, called Tiktaalik roseae; a large scaly creature not seen before, that they say is a long-sought missing link in the evolution of some fishes from water to a life walking on four limbs on land.
Obviously you know where I stand on this subject.
However, not to be outdone by Creationists with cries of preferential treatment (do any even know my blog exists?), I am also presenting here the Top 10 Intelligent Designs (or Creation Myths).
As you read the article about the missing link, you will note that some Creationists say that this discovery is not enough to disprove their beliefs because scientists have not yet found evidence of an animal with both fins and feet.
As far as I know, we have also not yet discovered a talking snake.
