"Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain , and thus , perhaps , is the most obvious and serious objection which can be urged against the theory ."
Charles Darwin , Origin of Species :
Amazing.... Darwin , Lyell and many others knew it and know it .S J Gould , some 150 years after Darwin , invented a theory (although with no real evidence to support it , yet another crazy hypothesis ) which would do away with slow and gradual change , because he knew there was no evidence for it . And yet the blind mice keep sticking to the evolutionary pied pipers tune of slow and gradual protozoa to man biological evolution .
" The record of evolution , still surprisingly jerky and ironically we have even fewer examples of evolutionary transition than we had in Darwin's time . By this I mean that some of the classic cases of Darwinian change in the fossil record , such as the evolution of the horse in North America , have had to be discarded or modified as a result of more detailed information ..what appeared to be nice simple progression when relatively few data were available now appears to be much more complex and much less gradualistic .

comments added : Darwin stated there was no such evidence to support a finely graduated organic chain ..read above . So if there is less now than there was when there was non , that means there is less than non now . So in fact the evidence for biological evolution over millions of years has now got into the negative evidence range ...STILL ACCEPT SLOW GRADUAL CHANGE ?
