“He [Darwin] prophesied that future generations of palaeontologists (experts in fossils) would fill in these gaps by diligent search….It has become abundantly clear that the fossil record will not confirm this part of Darwin’s predictions. Nor is the problem a miserably poor record. The fossil record simply shows that this prediction was wrong.”
“Palaeontologists have long been aware of a seeming contradiction between Darwin’s postulate of gradualism … and the actual findings of palaeontology.
Following phyletic lines through time seemed to reveal only minimal gradual changes but no clear evidence for any change of a species into a different genus or for the gradual origin of an evolutionary novelty. Anything truly novel always seemed to appear quite abruptly in the fossil record.”
“Palaeontologists have paid an exorbitant price for Darwin’s argument. We fancy ourselves as the only true students of life’s history, yet to preserve our favoured account of evolution by natural selection we view our data as so bad that we never see the process we profess to study.”
Stephen J Gould
“Palaeobiologists flocked to these scientific visions of a world in a constant state of flux and admixture. But instead of finding the slow, smooth and progressive changes Lyell and Darwin had expected, they saw in the fossil records rapid bursts of change, new species appearing seemingly out of nowhere and then remaining unchanged for millions of years, patterns hauntingly reminiscent of creation.”
The biblical account is supported by this evidence and Darwinism is falsified. Don't these comments, and there are many more available from many sources, indicate that Darwin's theory, according to his own words, has suffered a fatal wound?
Why then do we continue to believe this?
To say fossils are dead may not sound very profound. But as an aid to Darwin's theory they are double dead. If these relics of the past prove anything, it is that evolution could never have happened in the way Darwin needed and expected.
“If numerous species, belonging to the same genera or families, have really started into life at once, the fact would be fatal to the theory of evolution through natural selection.”
From that quote you can tell that Darwin feared the worst. That all things may have started life at once, just as the Bible states.
Modern Evolutionists know that what Darwin hoped to see has never been seen.
The coelacanth was one of the classic “missing links” proving Darwin's theory of evolution is true. It was thought to have gone extinct 65 million years ago. However in recent years it has been found happily swimming around our seas. Just another example of things not going to plan.
The “missing links” which are supposed to fill the gaps which Darwin thought were an essential proof of his theory are still missing as testified below by the following quotes from these famous and dedicated evolutionary palaeontologists.
