Re: Young Earth Radiocarbon.
That's because humans and most mammals have forward facing eyes, a requirement for binocular vision and depth perception. The article explains that quite clearly, but apparently you didn't read past the first paragraph.

Nope. Non overlapping fields of vision means no depth perception. Try playing catch with a hardball and keeping one eye closed. See how long before you get your front teeth knocked out.
Strangely enough most fish seem able to accurately judge distance underwater without binocular vision.
Most fish get by without it because they don't need depth perception to survive. This one inhabits a niche where such vision is a huge evolutionary benefit.
So to all professional biologists those front appendages are stiff fins that are used as legs. To a butt-ignorant goober like you they seem to be merely fins. Let's see, whose opinion should carry more weight? Maybe you could define fins and legs in marine creatures for us so we can know the difference.
Those lobe fins that it uses to crawl along the reef look just like fins to me, not resembling legs in the least.
Speaking of legs/fins, have you ever gotten over your cowardice in discussing the mudskipper? Still claim they propel themselves on land by just using their tails?
I guess we see what we want to see, regardless of what's really there
Talking about your own Fundy-induced blindness again I see.
