So there's nothing actually observable? We have to just believe that one fossil became another without seeing it happen? I know its supposed to take

see this? I think it takes alot of faith to believe one animal genus became another with no one ever seeing it happen.
Yes, it takes a REALLY LONG TIME for this
or even this
The first one isn't around anymore...well, sort of. It is
around in that it became those other two. But those other two are mutated versions
of the first one. Nothing just --- *snap* *poof* *bam* --- turns into something else.
Likewise, two contemporary creatures cannot be the ancestor or progeny of one another. That's an answer to the age old question why no gorillas (or
chimps or whatever) haven't spontaneously turned into and/or given birth to a human.
It happens with plants too, by the way. That's how this
can all be related. Not because one or the other "made" or "produced" the other
three, but because all of them come from a shared ancestor that is not around anymore, except under the accepted understanding that all four of them
technically "ARE" that ancestor, just with changes depending on the environment.
