Holy Quran confirms latest studies in evolution

I am re-reading the Holy Quran after a small surgery I had recently. I came across the verse:

We made from water
Every Living thing. Will they
not then belive?
Chapter: 21, Verse: 30

A recent book Inner Fish by world-famous palaeontologist Neil Shubin suggests that our ancestors could be fish. The discovery of 375-million-year old fossil fish by Neil Shubin and his colleagues in Arctic led to this inspiring book.

The book scientifically explores the connection between anatomy of human and that of fish. It suggests the invasion of land by fish 375 million years ago.

I was reminded of Dr. Maurice Bucaille's famous book on The Quran and Modern Science which I read when I was in school.
