← Ancient serpent shows its leg

Friend Giskard's Avatar Jump to comment 22 by Friend Giskard

Don't get too excited. This might be seen (not by me!) as confirmation of the Genesis story. It was only after the Fall that the serpent was made to crawl on its belly as a punishment. It obviously had legs before that, otherwise there would have been no punishment. Properly read, Genesis actually predicted this discovery.
