Because they are descended from the same creature as all other mammals.
Duh.

Hmmm, so to clarify the question, you're asking why a whale has finger bones when it has no fingers?

I think its interesting because birds and other types of animals that don't really have fingers have finger bones too. There's an answer given in my biology textbook but I don't have it atm...sorry

They have those bones because they need them to keep their flippers together. Same reason why we humans have bones in our hands and feet. It was not due to evolution, as macro-evolution is unbiblical.
