Do Transitional Fossils Really Exist?
I want to get to the heart of the matter, and that is, do fossils really prove that evolution ever happened? It seems to me, that if the intermediate, or transitional fossils, are not present in the fossil record, then evolution doesn’t have a fossil leg to stand on. So, I began to research the Archaeopteryx, and the intermediate fossils, that are supposed to link it with reptiles, and they don’t exist anywhere. They’re not in the museums, school text books, or anywhere on the internet. Sure, evolutionists will do their best to show us how it all happened, by referring us to videos that use drawings, plastered facsimiles, fancy computer graphics and animations, graphs, charts, and lots of empty words, but, are we going to accept such rhetoric as science? After all, many evolutionists say, the “theory” of evolution is a FACT! Others know better. If evolution is a scientific fact, then there shouldn’t be any problem for the evolutionists to SHOW us, the public, the intermediate fossils that link a reptile to an Archaeopteryx, OR, a land animal to a whale.
There are evolutionary scientists whom have admitted it, that the intermediate fossils are missing. Evolutionists, Niles Eldredge and Stephen J. Gould. because of the ABSENCE of intermediate fossils, came up with an alternative hypothesis, because the needed fossils have been missing for a very long time, and it doesn’t appear, that those fossils are going to pop up any time soon. The hypothesis is called, Punctuated Equilibrium. I guess now, animals will have to give birth to offspring that don’t have the same characterists and appearance as the parents do, in order for Punctuated Equilibrium to be useful. It’s just another useless hypothesis, to cover up the truth. Anti-theist and Darwinist, Richard Dawkins, whom is a gradualist, was fairly vehement with Gould, because of the new hypothesis. Dawkins kept a straight face for such a long time, pretending the intermediate fossils really existed, and then have fellow evolutionists, Gould and Elderedge, call him a liar (in so many words), only proves just how poor the evidence is, in the fossil record.
“The ABSENCE of fossil evidence for intermediary stages between major transitions in organic design, indeed our inability, even in our imagination, to construct functional intermediates in many cases, has been a persistent and nagging problem for gradualistic accounts of evolution.”– Stephen J. Gould; Harv.Univ.;”Is a New and General Theory of Evolution Emerging?”; Paleobiology, vol.6(1), Jan.1980, p.127
“And it has been the paleontologist, my own breed, who have been most responsible for letting ideas dominate reality: …. We paleontologists have said that the history of life supports that interpretation [gradual adaptive change], all the while knowing that it does not.”– NILES ELDREDGE, Columbia Univ., American Museum Of Natural History, TIME FRAMES, 1986, p.144
I asked evolutionists for many months, on the internet, that they could prove evolution to me, if they can provide the ACTUAL intermediate fossils that link one kind of creature to a completely different kind of creature, such as, a reptile to an Archaeopteryx, and not a single evolutionist or atheist could provide the ACTUAL PHOTOS of such fossils. If those fossils existed in the museums, or in text books, they certainly would be all over the internet, being rubbed into the faces of every young earth creationist. Instead, we see videos uploaded by evolutionists and atheists, using drawings, plastered creatures, computer animations, and lots of empty words, and we’re expected to accept that bunkum as evidence for evolution. Evolution is supposed be science, and science is supposed to be OBSERVABLE and VARIFIABLE, but, evolution is showing anyone who has eyes to see, that IMAGINATION is all the evidence they can gather up, even though, they’ve had over 155 years to find it.
“You say I should at least ‘show a photo of the fossil from which each type or organism was derived.’ I will lay it on the line-there is not one such fossil for which one could make a watertight argument. It is easy enough to make up stories of how one form gave rise to another. … But such stories are not part of science, for there is no way of putting them to the test. … I don’t think we shall ever have any access to any form of tree which we can call factual.”– Colin Patterson; Sen. Paleontologist, British Museum of Nat. History; HARPER’S, Feb. 1984, p.56
I’m finding out now, that when evolutonists can’t provide us with OBSERVABLE evidence, namely, the intermediate fossils, they’ll suddenly say,”We don’t need them!”. Then, they’ll start using their IMAGINATIONS to pull out IMAGINARY “evidence” from under the microscope. If the evolutionists can’t find the intermediate fossils after sorting through BILLIONS of fossils, worldwide, then they’re not going to find them, and that can only mean one thing… the “theory” of evolution is bankrupt!
“But fossil species remain unchanged throughout most of their history and the record fails to contain a single example of a significant transition.”– D.S. WOODROFF, Univ. of CA, San Diego, Science, Vol.208, 1980, p.716
