Bats fly uniquely.

In case any one accidentally comes to the (?obvious) conclusion that the finding of yet more evidently brilliant design in biology may support ID, everyone must include the customary clear homage to the creator of all life, NDE.
Science Daily “Kenneth Breuer and Sharon Swartz are determined to understand the detailed aerodynamics of bat flight Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and ultimately the evolutionary path that created it.”
“The assumption has always been that bats evolved from some sort of flying squirrel-type animals,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Swartz an associate professor in ecology and evolutionary biology at Brown University. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Gliding has evolved in mammals seven times…. Now it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t look like bats have any relationship to these gliding things.”
“Interestingly both Breuer and Schwartz remark that it took them months to find a common language and set of expectations.”
