Was One Of Your Ancestors A Fish

I've started asking people the silly sounding question :

Was one of your ancestors a fish?

The way that people answer the question is quite interesting. Here's some answers I've had so far :

  • No!
  • Urm, not sure.
  • Perhaps.. <avoiding the question>

If the answer is no, or you aren't sure, here's a couple more questions : was one of your ancestors an ape? a rodent?

I think darwinism has crept into people's heads enough; its accepted that one of our ancestors was an ape, but a rodent? No! And certainly not a fish!

If you haven't guessed by now, I think that millions of my ancestors were fish. If you trace the roots of all mammals, you will eventually get back to fish. But don't take my word for it. Have a think, have a read.

This is just one of my Weird Questions.
