The Fossil Evidence Is Missing

Sep 14, 2008
To his credit, Charles Darwin was a blunt realist. He fully realized that if his theory of evolution was true there should be abundant proof to back him up.

But the application of real science, which means stringent observation and examination of the visible evidence, has uncovered no such proof.

The complete lack of transitional fossils refutes Darwinian evolution. Had everything evolved from bacteria, the fossil record would contain millions of missing links. But the links are missing, refuting Darwinism by their absence.

Darwin stated on page 211 of his first book, On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life, that "If my theory be true, numberless intermediate varieties must assuredly have existed."

I certainly agree with Darwin's statement. If everything in the world had evolved from that supposed first living cell, then the fossil evidence would be overwhelming. There should be nothing to debate. However, the fossil record has been a total embarrassment for secular beliefs which are founded on Darwinian-style change being true, and which remove God from the equation.

Back in the 1930's Richard Goldschmidt had the same problem that Darwinians have today. He had no evidence that Darwinian change had ever occurred. Goldschmidt developed the Hopeful Monster theory to try and cover the gaping holes in the fossil record where all things are found as completed kinds, not intermediate or transitional types of plants or animals as Darwin had expected would be found, if his theory was correct.

The Hopeful Monster theory basically claimed that there was no evidence of Darwinian change in the fossil record because Darwinian change occurred virtually instantaneously. Goldschmidt even suggested that perhaps reptiles laid eggs and birds popped out, leaving no evidence behind!

Well, fifty years later there was still no evidence of Darwinism having occurred so Niles Eldridge and Stephen Gould changed the Hopeful Monster theory just slightly, but gave it a much more scientific-sounding name.

Now the theory which explains why there is no evidence of Darwinian change in the fossil record is referred to as "Punctuated Equilibrium." Although this sounds rather daunting, what it basically means is that there is no evidence of Darwinian change in the fossil record because Darwinian-style evolution occurred in such short bursts of time, such as when a reptile laid an egg and a bird popped out, that no evidence was captured in the fossil record!

Prior to trying to comply with Darwinism, science had been based on knowledge derived from the study of the evidence. Darwinism is not science; it is a religious belief which has greatly undermined both scientific research as well as scientific education.

The fossil evidence is missing because Darwinism never took place.
