Transitional Forms: Que Sediba, Sediba
How can evolution be taught over creationism in the public schools when there are no transitional forms?
We should be clear about this: If Darwin’s Theory is correct, we should be able to find a well defined trail of fossils that clearly show the gradual, very slow change of distant ancestors to man. Simply put, there are no convincing transitional forms to show this. In the years since Darwin published his theory, the fossil record has become very robust, with millions of fossils found and evaluated thoroughly. Unfortunately for Darwin’s theory, the fossil record continues to show an “absence or rarity of transitional forms.” The only objective witness that could substantiate Darwin’s theory is the fossil record, but it does not do so. Rather than showing the slow and obvious evolution of all species from common ancestors, the fossil record shows the sudden appearance and disappearance of species, without transitional forms. True, Darwin argued that transitional forms might be difficult to find, but to not find any convincing forms after 150 years is really quite damaging for Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.
Given this, I remain amazed that Darwin’s theory is now taught as fact, and that advancement in the field of Biology is contingent upon demonstrating full faith in Darwin’s Theory of Evolution as fact as well as repudiation of the idea that God created all of life.
Nope, there just aren’t any transitional forms in human evolution… except these, of course.
Oh, look, here’s a new transitional form: Australopithecus sediba, a species with both australopithecine features and homo features, so intimately combined that scientists find it difficult to definitively classify fossils from this species as firmly within either genus.
