The missing link finally found-Ray Comfort
Creationists who say that there is no proof of Darwinian evolution have been called liars for years:
"Creationists claim there are no transitional fossils, aka missing links. Biologists and paleontologists, among others, know this claim is false . . . but the fossil record - which is far from complete - is full of them nonetheless, as documented by Occidental College geologist Donald Prothero in his book Evolution: What the Fossils Say and Why It Matters (Columbia University Press, 2007)."
So the claim that there are no species-to-species transition forms in the fossil record "is false." Instead evolutionists say that fossil record "is full of them." But look at this May 20th 2009 report about how they had finally found the missing link:
"Scientists Unveil Missing Link In Evolution: Scientists have unveiled a 47-million-year-old fossilised skeleton of a monkey hailed as the missing link in human evolution. This 95%-complete 'lemur monkey' is described as the 'eighth wonder of the world.' The search for a direct connection between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom has taken 200 years -- but it was presented to the world today at a special news conference in New York. The discovery of the 95%-complete 'lemur monkey' -- dubbed Ida -- is described by experts as the 'eighth wonder of the world.' They say its impact on the world of palaeontology will be 'somewhat like an asteroid falling down to Earth.' Researchers say proof of this transitional species finally confirms Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, and the then radical, outlandish ideas he came up with during his time aboard the Beagle. Sir David Attenborough said Darwin 'would have been thrilled' to have seen the fossil -- and says it tells us who we are and where we came from. 'This is the one that connects us directly with them' . . . Now people can say 'okay we are primates, show us the link . . . The link they would have said up to now is missing -- well it's no longer missing'."
For years we have been told by believers that the theory of evolution is a scientifically proven fact. But this article correctly says that prior to this discovery they had no proof. With this discovery they now believe that "the link they would have said up to now is missing -- well it's no longer missing." All this proves is that some scientists are willing to lie to prove their pet theories.
Is this the missing link? Is Ida proof of Darwinism? Not according to CBS news. They said, "So while we don't know exactly what Ida means to human origins, she's proof we are endlessly fascinated by where we came from." According to The wall Street Journal, "The discovery has little bearing on a separate paleontological debate centering on the identity of a common ancestor of chimps and humans, which could have lived about six million years ago and still hasn't been found."
The missing link is still missing. So much for the "eighth wonder of the world" and the "asteroid falling down on the world." Believers in the theory of evolution still have to keep blindly believing without proof. Maybe one day...

The birdlike reptile
"Raoul Rheits said...you seem firm in your beliefs that evolutionists claim that 'cows turn into dogs' and whatnot. So I'll make it simpler still for you: What characteristics would YOU expect to see in a transitional reptile/avian fossil? What characteristics of such a fossil would you accept to show evidence of a reptile becoming more birdlike?"
You are asking me to play the game that evolutionists play. It's the game of "Speculation." It uses a special language made up of words such as "perhaps," "maybe," "could have," etc. You may as well ask me to speculate on the signs that would be present for Cinderella's coach to be able to turn into a pumpkin. I don't believe in fairy tales and I don't believe in the unscientific theory of evolution. Reptiles don't turn into birds no matter how long you leave them. Every animal brings forth after its own kind, both in creation and in the fossil record. Chickens were not dinosaurs billions of years ago, despite the musings of evolutionary imagineers. I believe in true science, not in the pseudo-science of evolution.
Also, I have never said that evolutionists believe that cows turn into dogs. I have said that there is no scientific evidence of any species "evolving" into another species. That's the evidence that is still missing.
You have your own definition of evolution, but ask the average person on the street what they believe it is, and they will say that Darwin said that man evolved from primates--that our great, great, great grandfather was an ape.
You believe in a common ancestor (like a branch on a tree of common descent), they don't. They believe we are direct ancestors. That we are apes. And who can blame them for the confusion when speculators like Richard Dawkins say things like "We admit that we are like apes, but we seldom realize that we are apes...In truth, not only are we apes, we are African apes" ("Gaps in the Mind").
It is very clear that there is no empirical evidence for Darwinian evolution. Look at the last sentence in this quote about the supposed 47 million year old primate named Ida--unveiled as the missing link:
"This will be the one pictured in the textbooks for the next hundred years," said Dr Jørn Hurum, the paleontologist from Oslo University's Natural History Museum who assembled the scientific team to study the fossil. "It tells a part of our evolution that's been hidden so far. It's been hidden because the only [other] specimens are so incomplete and so broken there's nothing almost to study."
Notice what he said: " . . . other specimens are so incomplete and so broken there's nothing almost to study." Drop the word "almost" and you have the truth.
If you believe in evolution then you are believing a lie (see Romans 1:25). Carl Sagan said, "We will not be afraid to speculate, but we will be careful to distinguish speculation from fact." If you choose to believe in the theory of evolution, you have failed to do that.
