Huh? Noone here anymore?
Ok, then I will have to discuss with myself I guess.
The opponents of the evolution theory have often based their rejection on the claim that there would be no intermediate links between the species in the fossil-record.
That is obviously a false claim, even during the time of Darwin, there were intermediate-links found in the fossil-record. The problem was that there were not found enough links, since the evolution-theory predicted/s a gradual evolution, and therefore requiring a multitude of links, a constant stream.
Possible explanation for the rarity of links, mind you not absence, cause there are links, found in the fossil-record that was proposed is:
Not every dying creature becomes a fossil, there are certain kinds of conditions that must come together to produce fossils.
But some bioligists were not content with that line of thinking and proposed a new theory that complements the gradual evolution. According to them, in many cases evolution would not happen gradually, but in jumps. A minority-part of a population gets somehow and for some reason isolated and evolves pretty fast and then expands and drives the non-evolved majority-population into extinction.
I'm not sure that the new theory is widely accepted.
Another question that needs some discussion is, how can one blend together the story of Adam and Eve with the knowledge of evolution?
