Evolution of the Christian fish symbol

Yes! thanks to Wayne Nowazek

Christianity survives through Dinosaur times

Origin of the Christian fish symbol
In the 1st Century, Christians made an acrostic from the Greek word ichthys. Christ fed the 5,000 with 2 fishes and 5 loaves (Feeding the Multitudes, Matthew 14:13-21 and Mark 8:1-9), and Jesus called his disciples 'Fishers of Men.' (Matthew 4:19). Water baptism created a parallel between fish and converts. Theologian Tertullian stated, 'We, little fishes, after the image of our Ichthys, Jesus Christ, are born in the water.'

Critics of the fish symbol decry it as tacky commercialism of faith...
