Intermediate links

"...intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic change, and this is perhaps the most obvious and serious objection which can be urged against the theory." [Charles Darwin, "The Origin of Species," 1859, Chapter 11, "On the imperfection of the geologic record."]

...And this still holds true today!

Yeah? I agree. But what about all these very know-it-loudly people who attack faith but then they, too, deny scientific evidence such as this...?

Crazy. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, and here's an example: www.alexandertheatheist.blogspot.com

Thanks for leaving a comment, 'Just Passing Through.'

Interesting website that you mentioned. I think I see what you mean. I only read a little of it so far, but from what I can tell, it appears that 'Alexander the Atheist' tenaciously clings to the theory of Evolution, despite the complete lack of concrete evidence to prove the theory, and despite the multitude of huge gaps in the theory. And though he says, "I will also not ignore answers with logical fact-based evidence that clearly contradict the answers I formerly believed I had," he seems to completely refuse to seriously consider the possibility that Christianity (i.e., Intelligent Design/Creationism) may hold the very answer he's looking for. He says "I will admit that there is a gap in my knowledge and wait for it to be filled through science and human reason," which is basically saying, "Even though Science and human reason have failed miserably, even after hundreds of years, to find any proof, I refuse to look elsewhere for the answer." The fact that he claims that Intelligent Design/Creationism is "backed by nothing outside of outrageous leaps of blind faith and arrogant presumption" shows that he is turning a blind eye to the evidence that points to Creationism; and, if he is also talking about Christianity in general, he is ignoring document evidence, experiential evidence, and much other evidence which is not only plentiful, but is overwhelming (except to those who refuse to even consider any such evidence).

The atheistic, evolutionary scientists whom I have quoted on this blog site, have made blatant statements which completely contradict 'Alexander the Atheist's statement that (as he says) "....evolution is a far more consistent and probable answer, not least of which because it has mountains of natural evidence. You have to be pretty desperate to attack evolution based on such things as the fossil records and supposed gaps in them (where are these gaps?), as these records and other evidence strongly support evolution...."

I completely disagree as well, and the more research I do, the more I find that the evidence points to Creation, not Evolution.
