"What are you transitioning too :)"

I'm still working on the mixing genes part. We'll have to wait at least 9 month to answer that question.

But seriously, I was making the point assuming common decent to be true (which I take it you disagree with) then ALL fossils are transitional fossils. Every organism that has ever lived, barring an untimely death, is a midpoint between its ancestors and its descendants.

Great ... hope things turn out the way you want (ie gender)

Problem is with fossils is that there are too many gaps ... secondly a lot is based on uniformitism ... the layers of the earth being laid down uniformly. Such though is not the case - we find younger transitional forms in layers containing older fossils ... so we still really don't know ... then too, all the age names are wrong too - it's been found that forms belonging to one age were found in another - and that's not been corrected.

Have a great Holiday ...
