Appreciate the article. He is soon unwittingly caught up in the smuggling of Tamil refugees. Dhoni fans celebrate his birthday by watching biopic. Animal rights activists are up in arms against the recent order of the Kerala Forest Department, allowing well-known Malayalam-Tamil actor Jayaram to keep custody of a pair of tusks of his pet jumbo, which had died two years ago. Kevin W. Fantastic, I have found that laymen always think that this is evolution.
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. Stephen C.
US April 11th, I read an article about similar things happening in fish populations. Because fishermen tend to keep larger fish and throw back the small ones or, in large-scale fishing, smaller fish are more easily able to slip out of the nets , many types of fish are getting smaller and smaller, as a whole. David Catchpoole April 12th, Thanks for your comment; it bears out our previous articles Smaller fish to fry and Where have all the big fish gone? GB April 11th, Similar pressures have reduced the average size of the population of Atlantic salmon returning to rivers around the British coast.
The mesh size of nets used in salmon fishing have caught the large fish and only allowed smaller ones to get through. Progressively the genes for large fish have been removed from the wild population. Peter G. ZW April 11th, Having been born and raised in rural Zimbabwe and worked as a safari guide for the last 32 years, I can certainly confirm that David's article is true. In actual fact, the average weight of ivory taken by hunters in the safari industry has decreased considerably in just 30 years.
Ivory weight and length in elephant is determined by genetics and because the larger bull elephants have over the years been targeted by both legal and illegal hunters, it hasn't taken long for this gene pool to be severely depleted. In actual fact there are still some young bull elephants yrs , who if allowed to grow undisturbed, will attain the same weight as their predecessors. The increase of tuskless animals is a direct result of management policies. In earlier days the game department would cull all tuskless animals but due to CITES restrictions, the culling of these animals is no longer carried out.
The result is that elephant populations in some National Parks have actually increased significantly over the last 30 years and with this, so have the tuskless animals. It is also worth pointing out that an elephant without tusks is at a disadvantage due to its inability to use this tool to feed and defend itself, so how can this be classed as a form of evolution?
Isn't evolution supposed to be a process of improvement?? Michael I. I couldn't help but laugh when I read this article this morning. This was brought up in an online discussion I had with someone as proof of evolution.
I presented the loss of information is in opposition of evolutionary theory calling it "de-evolution" and the guy said to me "that's not a word, you just made that up. They use the term so loosely, for them, any variation or adaption is evolution.
It's like the word evolution has become the word change on any scale. God bless CMI, keep it up! Peter M. Why can't the opponents of creation see this demonstration and the countless others you present for us on your website, as being the complete opposite of evolution.
The term 'blindingly obvious' comes to mind. Their eyes must be firmly shut not to see this. Let us pray that many more people will understand that evolution is a false teaching because of the work of this website. Thank you.
Tusks are elongated, continuously growing front teeth, usually but not always in pairs, that protrude well beyond the mouth of certain mammal species. They are. Yali/Yāḷi (Sanskrit: याळि, IAST: Yāli) is words derived from Tamil known as Vyala or Vidala in In its iconography and image the yali has a catlike graceful body, but the head of a lion with tusks of an elephant (gaja) and tail of a serpent.

Tusks have a variety of uses depending on the animal.
Social displays of dominance, particularly among males, are common, as is their use in defense against attackers. Elephants use their tusks as digging and boring tools. Walruses use their tusks to grip on ice and to haul out on ice. Tusks are used by humans to produce ivory , which is used in artifacts and jewellery , and formerly in other items such as piano keys. Consequently, many tusk-bearing species have been hunted commercially and several are endangered.
