Interesting post Yog, I'll try to find out more about that as well.
And once again, this is not a creationism vs evolution discussion.
This is about transitional fossils and the proof and ideas behind the transition of species.

DARWIN'S THEORY OF EVOLUTION DEBUNKED
www.vedicsciences.net...

Debunking Evolution:
problems, errors, and lies exposed,
in plain language for non-scientists
www.newgeology.us...

I just don't see how all the beauty and order around me is due to random mutations only.

Why does nearly every living being have two eyes, one mouth, one nose, two ears, etc.? How can that be a coincidence?

Besides, how can consciousness arise out of the unconscious dead matter of the universe? It just doesn't make sense.

To Atheists and Evolutionists:

Do you ever consider that there might be order at a level that is beyond your perception and mind?

Check out these videos debunking Evolution:

Scientists present proof of intelligent design

Part 1 of 7:

Here are some more videos I found.

After 150 years of fossil digging, no transitional fossils have been found, thus Darwin's own fears (written in his own book) about being proven wrong by lack of transitional fossils, has materialized.

"Icons of Evolution" by Jonathan Wells. In these clips several experts and biologists explain why random mutations are NOT advantageous and how antibiotic resistant bacteria are actually proof against evolution, not for it. It's very interesting.

This clip explains how Evolution cannot explain the Cambrian explosion, and thus their textbooks ignore the event altogether since it doesn't fit in to their theory. In fact a Geologist in China made some discoveries that refute Darwinian evolution.

IMO most likely explanation for cambrian explosion is that around then the eukaryotic cell accumulated a certain alphaproteobacteria that we now call mitochondria. All of a sudden eukaryotes had 100s to 1000s of time more energy to play with. This issue is not ignored in biology textbooks so stop spreading your propaganda.

P.S. every single fossil found is a transitional fossil, every single species is a transitional species. IMO the whole idea of species should be abandoned in favour of "cellular lineages"


editing. actually mitochondria were accumulated much longer time ago. CE requires another explanation

That's a total copout, to say every fossil is a transitional fossil. Why aren't there fossils of creatures that are half reptile and half mammal? There should be, if evolution is true.

There should most certainly not be a half reptile half mammal if evolution was true. Such bizarre fossil would in fact falsify evolution.

what would be easier to find is an example of a living animal that is is a state of transition, the best example i can think of is the penguin.
Here you have an bird that was once flight capable, but whos body pattern has changed quite dramaticly to take advantage of an aquatic lifestyle. Much in the same way seals and whales did, both of which have have transitional ancestors in the fossil record.

That is illogical and makes no sense. Care to elaborate? Why don't we have transitional fossils between species?

Why is it that when you ask Darwinists this question, they go berzerk and start saying nonsensical things, like a computer in Star Trek about to self-destruct? lol

Luckily no scientist has tried to prove evolution by only using fossils. Google is your friend. Every day finds more evidence for evolution and the information is updated daily in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Only fundamentalists need to disprove evolution IMHO.

But how do you know penguins transitioned from another species? Where is the proof? How do you know penguins aren't an original species of their own?

Also, can someone answer this one?

Why does nearly every living creature on Earth have two eyes, one mouth, one nose, two ears, etc.? How can that be a coincidence?

Like I said before, all fossils are transitional fossils between species. Static species do not exist. They change constantly. Many lineages go extinct, others divide into multiple new ones. Look at the pictures for example here.

holy crap never thought of that, im gonna do some looking up now thanks for your thoughts on the matter now i have something to think bout today

Proof? How about the fact that we have not found 200 million year old fossils of penguins that resemble modern penguins? It's the same for all the animal species on Earth right now. We don't find 500 million year old rabbit fossils. All you need is one such fossil and you've falsified evolution. Shouldn't be too difficult, yet no such thing has even been brought forth..



Also, can someone answer this one?

Well first of all virtually every living creature on Earth has no eyes, mouth, nose or ears as they're unicellular organisms. Us multicellular animals are a tiny minority. Now what goes for us having bilateral symmetry. It's a very old "invention". The genes that bring this about are very conserved in evolution. It's not a coincidence. It's a matter of nature selecting what works best.
