The MYTH of the , "evolution of the horse" in the origin of mammals has been widely used by the proponents of biological evolution , but the " evolution of the horse " is a MYTH . This myth is based on human imagination and not scientific findings. Up until recently, an imaginary sequence claiming to demonstrate the evolution of the horse was propogated as being the best fossil evidence for the theory of evolution. But now this long propogated MYTH is being assigned to the waste bin of evolutionary claims , many evolutionists admit that the story of horse evolution is bankrupt. During a four day symposium in 1980, at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, with 150 evolutionists in attendance, to discuss the problems with the gradualistic evolutionary theory. This meeting was addressed by evolutionist Boyce Rensberger , during the address he sstated that the scenario of the evolution of the horse has no foundation in the fossil record, and that no evolutionary process has been observed to account for the gradual evolution of horses:
evolutionist Boyce Rensberger :
The popularly told example of horse evolution, suggesting a gradual sequence of changes from four-toed fox-sized creatures living nearly 50 million years ago to today's much larger one-toed horse, has long been known to be wrong. Instead of gradual change, fossils of each intermediate species appear fully distinct, persist unchanged, and then become extinct. Transitional forms are unknown .
Boyce Rensberger, Houston Chronicle, November 5, 1980, p. 15
Mmmmm I think that does it for the theory of evolution being displayed in the fossil record . No wonder Richard Dawkins says that the theory of biological evolution does not need the fossil record .
Ha Ha I just love watching the pied pipers changing their tune .
Dr. Niles Eldredge , curator American Museum in New York . Said the following concerning an exhibition that was on display with reference to the evolution of the horse :
There have been an awful lot of stories, some more imaginative than others, about what the nature of that history [of life] really is. The most famous example, still on exhibit downstairs, is the exhibit on horse evolution prepared perhaps fifty years ago. That has been presented as the literal truth in textbook after textbook. Now I think that is lamentable, particularly when the people who propose those kinds of stories may themselves be aware of the speculative nature of some of that stuff.
Niles Eldgridge, quoted in Darwin's Enigma by Luther D. Sunderland (Santee, CA, Master Books, 1988), p. 78.
Gordon R. Taylor , evolution science writer .
But perhaps the most serious weakness of Darwinism is the failure of paleontologists to find convincing phylogenies or sequences of organisms demonstrating major evolutionary change... The horse is often cited as the only fully worked-out example. But the fact is that the line from Eohippus to Equus is very erratic. It is alleged to show a continual increase in size, but the truth is that some variants were smaller than Eohippus, not larger. Specimens from different sources can be brought together in a convincing-looking sequence, but there is no evidence that they were actually ranged in this order in time.
