Hi Job,

The scientific evidence seems to indicate that whales themselves did not
live on land.  They did have ancestors that lived on land and for some
reason decided to return to the ocean to live.  There is a book called The
Natural History of the Whale written by L. Harrison Matthews that will
give you more information.  Also books on the evolution of mammals and
dinosaurs will give you good information.

I hope you have a good weekend.  Drop a line if you have any more

W. Jones
