Nature has just published an interesting article on a new species that shows clear signs of intermediate changes from fish to amphibian. Main story is here:

This is indeed a major find and a major development in understanding the evolution from fish to amphibians and ultimately the conquering of land.

What do the creationists think? Is this not a clear example of an intermediate fossil?
