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.

You're going to need to provide some citations to back up these claims. Unsourced assertions aren't going to cut it.

An article published by Institute for Creation Research cites the following salient references, among others.

Gingerich, N.A. Wells, D.E. Russell, and S.M. Shah, Science, Vol. 220, 1983, pp. 403-406

A.S. Romer, Vertebrate Paleontology, 3rd Ed., U. of Chicago Press, 1966, p. 244.
