Jeff Gardner: The Lack of Transitional Forms in the Fossil Record

I think that's a very, very good question. There are these enormous gaps in the fossil record of what must be transitional species if the theory of evolution is the whole true that species transitioned from one into something radically different. You know whether this is a mammal, as the theory goes, mammal moving from the land to the sea, what was once a quadruped and then it becomes a whale with no legs at all. One would expect to find something by way of transition within the fossil record. It's not there, again I'm not an expert in this field, but that it's not there, I think, is suspicious by way of support for the theory, it doesn't seem to support it very well.
