Sir, I perceive that it is you that is confusing philosophy of science with science.

Consider the absurdity of a shrew becoming a bat or a dinosaur becoming a bird. Punctuated Equilibrium and Hopeful Monster theories had to emerge in order to address the utter unsurvivability of any of the obviously absurd “intermediate” life forms.

These theories are little more than stories in support of a philosophy of science, that being evolutionism.

Oh jeez not the "intermediate" canard again. What do you think of the new intermediate whale fossils?

Whales are incapable either of living or breeding on land.

Whatever these “transitional” creatures were, they were not whales, nor were they proto-whales.

There were so many flaws and gaps in the assumptions presented by Gingerich et al, that their conjecture can only be received as wishful thinking.

These “transitional forms” have been debunked, along with all the others.

The only difference between these “proto-whales” and the “dino-bird” is that the fossils were not deliberate hoaxes. But neither were they the fossils of any marine creature.

And if this is a canard, it is the Darwiniists’ canard. They are the ones who insist that there be intermediate forms.
