Archeopteryx comes to mind... Creature has clearly reptillian features, and yet also feathers... There is a clear connection with birds and their reptillian ancestors. Heck, just look at a bird's talons, and then an iguana claw...
Then of course, you have vestigal leg bones in whales...vestigal tails on humans, etc. Even our own nails are evidence....from when they used to be claws. How about that humans and chimps share 99% of the same DNA?
A most revealing evaluation of the current distortions – like Wise’s– of genetic information came in an editorial in the New Scientist. "Unfortunately, it has become fashionable to stress that chimpanzees and humans must have staggeringly similar psychologies because they share 98.4 per cent of their DNA. But this misses the point: genomes are not cake recipes. A few tiny changes in a handful of genes controlling the development of the [cerebral] cortex could easily have a disproportionate impact. A creature that shares 98.4 per cent of its DNA with humans is not 98.4 per cent human, any more than a fish that shares, say, 40 per cent of its DNA with us is 40 per cent human." The gap between probing termite mounds with a twig and constructing the space shuttle or making several painfully learned signs to communicate wants and declaiming the Gettysburg Address is the difference between 100% and 98.4%. Some would say the soul is in there too."

I'm unclear on this, Gazrok spoke of the ARCHAEOPTERYX which is most certainly NOT a hoax. If you mean the bird/dino "missing link" found in China, yes that was unfortunately hoaxed. But that was not the Archaeopteryx.
You are correct I misread Gazrok's Post. As for Archaeopteryx it is not a forgery but it is a true bird not a transitional species.
