A vivid imagination is the needed speciality for a successful evolutionary theory writer . Stories that require little thought in the mind of the hearer are the tools used to dupe the masses .
Just enough technical information is passed on , so as to give some credibility to the story .
We cannot identify ancestors or missing links , and we cannot devise testable theories to explain how particular episodes of evolution came about .
Gee is adamant that all the popular stories about how the first amphibians conquered the dry land , how the birds developed wings and feathers for flying , how the dinosaurs went extinct , and how humans evolved from apes are just products of our IMAGINATION , driven by PREJUDICES and PRECONCEPTIONS .
