Evolution, Missing Links and Intelligent Design

Scientists have found yet another "missing link" in the evolutionary progress from sea to land:

...the team understood immediately that they had found what they were looking for. Tiktaalik may have been a fish, but it had a remarkable set of land-animal characteristics, from its flat, alligator-like head with eyes on top to its ribs -- suitable for both heavy lifting and, perhaps, breathing with lungs.

You'd think this would pretty much silence proponents of creationism. I predict it won't. Detractors of evolution now have two more missing links (one on either side of tiktaalik) that they may claim "scientists haven't found."
