Contradicting Creationists Once Again, the Fossil Record Produces Yet Another Transitional Form

“Where are the transitional forms?” — Institute for Creation Research

This week, adding to the hundreds of already known transitional forms, Brown University graduate student Morgan Turner has published his findings on the oldest known upright quadraped. The proto-reptile quadraped Bunostegos akokaensis is unique among its pareiasaur bretheren because its limbs are vertically oriented, not sprawling.

Despite what creationists will tell you, transition happens all the time. Change abounds. Evolution is real.

    Aren’t you glad DNA and RNA were created? Without the codes all of these variations would not have been possible. There are scientists now who are looking for what it is that does Not change.

    Congratulations Cookie!
    For this accomplishment you get a Pavlovian cookie!
    Instead of researching something NEW that MATTERS, Like PLAS, you are regurgitating same old same old, figuratively and literally.

    Jim, you just keep finding things that are new to you and talking about them. They are interesting points in history and who knows, maybe our future. Perhaps what was will come back around in the DNA sequence.

      Ella,

      Thanks for the encouragement. Despite what R. Milnes says, this discovery is new in human understanding. I admire the work of graduate students like Morgan Turner and I hope he has a full, rich career uncovering additional information about the history of life.

    Cookie, that’s not what I meant, you…
    OOOOOOOOOOOOO Einstein says E=MC2. Oh wow.
    Ultimately…so what?
    The mass of men STILL live lives of quiet desperation.
    That is when they are not fighting wars or starving to death etc.
    MEANWHILE Einstein’s contemporary, Wilhelm Reich gets persecuted, ignored, misunderstood, forgotten, etc.
    Yet HIS ideas COULD BE REVOLUTIONARY i.e. end the mass of men live lives of quiet desperation.
    You want to hold up every nugget of profound knowledge that follows E=MC2 through string theory etc?
    Wasted lives.
    Figure out something that changes the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation and publish THAT.
    Then you might get MY praise.

      Or you could end mass frustration by voting for Donald Trump, or Bernie Sanders. They speak out and release the soul from having to accept lies perpetrated on them, knowing they are lies, but thinking they have to act like they believe them. Every day this goes on, reducing mankind to lives of frustration and desperation, because they cannot see light any longer and long for it.

    Yes, BOTH jews.

      I wish I knew that much. But consider that both Jews and at least some Christians are aware that the Earth is so very old and has held many life types in its’ existence. The fact that most older religions knew this before the US was heard of, makes the case for the ignorance that the Catholic Church deliberately contrived. I will not speculate on the purpose for their campaign against the public having knowledge of the activities that surrounded them, even during the Dark Ages. But thankfully it was limited to the Europeans and down to many of us, their descendants. Still we are learning, if only through the basic ways, called science, what has been on this planet, if not why, it has changed so radically through the millions of years. If you wanted to, you could post some article on anthropology.
