Larsson and Dececchi set out to determine from the fossil record when and how dinosaur forelimbs evolved into wings. They found that there really is no such trend. Birds appear complete and without evolutionary transitions in the fossil record.
Despite substantial differences between the fossilized fish Tiktaalik and terrestrial tetrapods, many evolutionists insist the fish was a transitional form. However, the fleshy fins of Tiktaalik do not attach to the bony pelvis and so could not support weight for walking. Furthermore, the bones in the fins of these fossil fish do not resemble digits.
Berger put forth his hopes that Australopithecus sediba would prove to be the elusive transition between the apes and humans. Many evolutionary paleontologists were not convinced. Paleoanthropologist Tim White pointed out that the “transitional” characteristics to Homo may have been nothing more than a juvenile ape.
Whale evolution is presented in most biology textbooks as absolute fact, often with inaccurate depictions of the supposed transitional forms.
With Pappochelys’s shell characteristics like those of other extinct turtles and a diapsid skull, should creation scientists be having nightmares?
The date evolutionists report for Little Foot is old enough to keep it in the running for human ancestor, but there is no reason to consider the dates reliable.
Did ancient ichthyosaurs march from land to sea in Triassic China?
Ancient microfossils have supposedly solved the evolutionary enigma of the Cambrian Explosion.
Teeth and tarsals build an arboreal Belgian beast said to be the ancestor of cats, canines, and bears.
How did birds get their wings? This “classic major evolutionary transition” fails to take flight in the fossil record.
Sediba fossils shuffle the deck of diversity but fail to connect the evolutionary dots.
A study packed with anatomical data and a significant bit of whimsy attempts to explain when the ancestor of most mammals (the placental ones) evolved.
Paleo-jigsaw or transitional form?
Tiktaalik tries again.
A new, overarching study of fossil discoveries reveals that most fossil finds cause little change in scientists’ view of evolutionary history. Why is that newsworthy for creationists?
Is a fossil found in Saudi Arabia the latest “missing link” between man and monkeys? Or is it only the latest misunderstood ape-like creature?
Evolutionary scientists have discovered the origin of fingers and toes: fishlike creatures that swam the seas hundreds of millions of years ago. So what exactly was the science behind the discovery, which was reported in Nature?
The alleged evolutionary history of whales continues to be a hotly debated topic in the current creation/evolution controversy, despite what some evolutionists are saying.
According to evolutionary theory, the origin of tetrapods from a fish-like ancestor was one of the major events in the history of life on earth.
Evolutionists repeatedly claim that their assembled chain of mammal-like reptiles shows a step-by-step morphological progression to mammals.
Dr David Pilbeam came to the attention of the scientific community as being an objective scientist when he wrote an article for Human Nature magazine, entitled, ‘Rearranging Our Family Tree’.
