If macro-evolution (major changes including new organs) is an historical fact, there should be an historical record – the fossil record. However, according to many evolutionists, this is the very thing that we don’t find:
· “What is missing [in the record] are the many intermediate forms hypothesized by Darwin, and the continual divergence of major lineages into the morphospace between distinct adaptive types.” Robert L. Carroll, “Towards a New Evolutionary Synthesis,” Trends in Ecology and Evolution 15 (2000): 27
· “I wish only to point out that [gradualism] was never ‘seen’ in the rocks.” Stephen Jay Gould, “Evolution’s Erratic Pace,” Natural History 86 (May 1977), 14
· “Stasis [remaining the same] is now abundantly well documented as the preeminent paleontological pattern in the evolutionary history of species.” (Niles Eldredge, “Reinventing Darwin: The Great Evolutionary Debate” (New York: John Wiley, 1995), 77) http://www.uncommondescent.com/intelligent-design/denton-introduction/
Instead, the fossil record is damning to the theory of evolution. Instead of providing evidence for gradual Darwinian change over time, this record shows that frogs remain frogs, and apes remain apes, and Darwinists remain Darwinists.
