Where are the Transitional Fossils? – 15 Questions for Evolutionists — # 9

Why are the (expected) countless millions of transitional fossils missing? Darwin noted the problem and it still remains. The evolutionary family trees in textbooks are based on imagination, not fossil evidence. Famous Harvard paleontologist (and evolutionist), Stephen Jay Gould, wrote, “The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology”.6 Other evolutionist fossil experts also acknowledge the problem.

Question 9 in CMI’s ’15 Questions for Evolutionists’ flyer has plagued evolutionists since the time of Darwin. Where are the transitional fossils? Evolutionary paleontologists have stated that the “missing links” are still missing and some, such as the late Stephen J. Gould, have suggested new ways of interpreting the fossil record due to the lack of transitional fossils.
