Evolution; Junk Debunked #1: Fossil Evidence

I am Doktor Christian and in this video we will discuss how hostile the fossil record is to evolution in the broad sense. We will break it down to specific forms in future videos.<br />
Naturalists must remember that the process of evolution is revealed only through fossil forms. A knowledge of paleontology is, therefore, a prerequisite; only paleontology can provide them with the evidence of evolution and reveal it&acirc;��s course or mechanisms.<br />
Despite the bright promise that paleontology provides a means of &acirc;��seeing&acirc;�� evolution, it has presented some nasty difficulties for evolutionists, the most notorious of which is the presence of &acirc;��gaps&acirc;�� in the fossil record. Evolution requires intermediate forms between species and paleontology does not provide them.<br />
The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology. The evolutionary trees that adorn our textbooks have data only at the tips and nodes of the branches; the rest is inference, however reasonable, not the evidence of fossils.<br />
If a postulated ancestral type is not found, it is simply stated that it has not so-far been found. Darwin himself often used this argument and in his time it was perhaps justifiable. But it has lost its value through the immense advances of paleobiology in the twentieth century. . . . The true situation is that those fossils have not been found which were expected. Just where new branches are supposed to
