Re: Science Disproves Evolution

“All paleontologists know that the fossil record contains precious little in the way of intermediate forms; transitions between major groups are characteristically abrupt.” Gould, “The Return of Hopeful Monsters,” p. 23. Pahu, you are going in circles. This has already been dealt with: you are indu...

Re: Science Disproves Evolution

It is interesting that Gould contradicts himself. For example: “All paleontologists know that the fossil record contains precious little in the way of intermediate forms; transitions between major groups are characteristically abrupt.” [/i] Gould, “The Return of Hopeful Monsters,” p. 23. More alert...

Re: Science Disproves Evolution

Pahu, how about reading and rereading this extract from the Lionel Theunissen piece quoted by Lord M, and then making a proper response: Patterson goes on to acknowledge that there are gaps in the fossil record, but points out that this is possibly due to the limitations of what fossils can tell us...

What misreading?
The misreading about which we currently seem to be disagreeing.

Keep going. You haven't C&P'd for a couple of posts, so there is hope yet.

Re: Science Disproves Evolution

Fossil Gaps 3 Dr. Colin Patterson, a senior paleontologist at the British Museum (Natural History), was asked by Luther D. Sunderland why no evolutionary transitions were included in Dr. Patterson’s recent book, Evolution. In a personal letter, Patterson said: [...] I will lay it on the line—there ...

Re: Science Disproves Evolution

The use of the word "transitional" implies an ancestor / descendant relationship. If evolutionists do not mean it that way, then it is they that are redefining "transitional". Certainly when the average person hears the term "transitional form" they think ancestor / descendant, not simply a mosaic ...

Another snippet from Brown's stop-frame Gish Gallop, I see. This has been dealt with years ago: http://www.talkorigins.org/indexcc/CC/CC200.html There are many transitional fossils. The only way that the claim of their absence may be remotely justified, aside from ignoring the evidence completely, i...
