If that were so, why has the theory of evolution changed (dare I say evolved) over the years as more fossil evidence has been gathered? Darwin provided examples of slow continuous evolution and that was mainstream evolutionary theory for years. However, the twentieth century theory of punctuated equilibrium better explains much, but not all, of later fossil finds.
Duane T. Gish, quoting the evolutionist Errol White:
We still do not know the mechanics of evolution in spite of the over-confident claims in some quarters, nor are we likely to make further progress in this by the classical methods of paleontology or biology; and we shall certainly not advance matters by jumping up and down shrilling Darwin is God and I, So-and-so, am his prophetthe recent researches of workers like Dean and Henshelwood (1964) already suggest the possibility of incipient cracks in the seemingly monolithic walls of the Neo-Darwinian Jericho.
