Evolution has done crazier things.

Whale is evolving!

Wow, you realise the messed up evolution for the whales now?

Seacreatures --> landcreatures --> semi-aquatic creatures --> seacreatures --> aircreatures

My good sir,
I believe that whales, ironically, were originally land creatures.

Yes but prior to that, like all other land creatures ^^

You can't really know if evolution started in a pool of water on land or in that big pond that is the sea. If you say you do, you're lying. (I'm not sure if it's even proven to have started in water)

Talking about the abiogenesis btw

You're all wrong, life originated from space when a meteor hit mars and flung some really durable single celled organisms into our planet.  Hence Skywhales are just 1 step away from finishing the return to their origins.

Next evolutionary step... space whales!

hah yeah, I suppose you're right there. I can't be too quick to present one theory as the absolute truth.

While the very origin of all life on earth is not conclusively discovered, it would be simpler, when talking about "life", to restrict the term to multi-celled organisms, which definitely originated in the ocean.

Clearly Sky Whales have been intelligently designed by one or more omnipotent being(s) that the world of Icarus is still in conflict about.

To which I do reply, are we suggesting Airships are multi-cellular organisms?

Well, you could call every gun, engine, bloon, hull and helm a cell in a snese, which would make the crew its lifeblood and the ship a multi-cellular organism.

Multiple gas-cells, I'd hope, or you'd never repair that balloon after a single carronade volley.

Guys. Wailord. The Pokémon. It has been calculated to be less dense than air. Skywhales, like dragons and unicorns, have appeared in multiple completely different cultures. They exist, or at least used to some long time ago.
