Haven't we gone through this a few times already? I suggested the forearm
as a simple example; which came first, ulna or radius? How could either part
arise gradually, functional at every step and attached at both ends? But it's
so easy to see when you trace the gradual distortion and loss of the many
symmetrical bones in the lungfish limb.

IC people rely heavily on the simple-to-complex strawman.
