So why do they still have these organs? Take whales, they have vestigial legs, they're useless for swimming and whales are FAR too big to walk, so the leg sizes must have changed over time....which sounds like evolution]
I know this stuff and don't like internet links. i've read it a thousand times.
The whales didn't evole but instantly adapted to new conditions. In fact probably within a creatures lifetime. So as long as the legs are out of the way there is no need for more atrophy. Same as birds who don't use their wings.
That few other creatures do not have vestigial organs is great evidence that they did not have different anatomical lives before. Like whales they would of kept bit and pieces of anything they no longer used.

And this is why nobody has ever drowned.

obviously he's just trying to say that some kind of elephant like creature found that it had swum too far off shore and decided that rather than trying to swim back, it should just stay in the water. It then of course decided that it might as well start eating fish... caught with its trunk... which also doubles as a snorkel... and there you have it, after only a few years of swimming around the elephant (or other large land dwelling creature) has totally altered its own physiology, diet and behavior. It then has freaky underwater sex with another "water elephant" and then we realize that it has altered its own DNA! So the baby elephant has inherited all the new traits of the parents. Tada! Whales in only a few years!

Evolution doesn't work like that!

Yes, only last week I saw an ostrich fly. Now, he has to walk.
