Geology and Paleontology

Goldschmidt, of the University of California

" spite of the immense amount of paleontological material and the long series of intact rock sequences with perfect records for the lower categories, transitions between the higher categories are missing."

Dr. Austin Clark, a leading biologist of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington

"No matter how far back we go in the fossil record of previous animal life on earth, we find no trace of any animal forms which are intermediate between the major groups of phyla. Scientists have sometimes come up with a few things that they have elected as candidates as transitiions, but on a later closer examination these have been seen to be misinterpretations. There are no such things as missing links. We might as well quit looking for them."

Professor Kerner, one of the leading botanists in the world at Cambridge University

" the unprejudiced, the fossil record of plants is in favor of special creation."

William Scott, Professor of Geology and Paleontology in Princeton University

"To be sure, this difficulty is impossible; no one ever saw the birth of a species."

Dr. Louis T. Moore, Professor of Paleontology, Princeton University, an evolutionist

"The more one studies paleontology, the more certain one becomes that evolution is based on faith alone."

"The evidence from paleontology is for discontinuity; only by faith and imagination is there continuity of variation."

Professor Enock, biologist

"The facts of paleontology seem to support creation rather than evolution. All the major groups of invertebrates appear suddenly in the first fossiliferous strata. (Cambrian) of the earth with their distinct specializations, indicating that they were all created at almost the same time."

Thomas Huxley, British biologist who championed evolution, 1825-1895

"The primary and direct evidence in favor of evolution can be furnished only by paleontology. If evolution had taken place, its marks will be left; if it has not taken place, there will be its refutation."

"I by no means suppose that the transmutation hypothesis is proven or anything like it."

William Straus, Jr.

In the Quarterly Review of Biology:

"I wish to emphasize that I am under no illusion that the theory of human ancestry which I favor at the present time can in any way be regarded as proven. One cannot assume that man is a made-over anthropoid ape of any sort. For much of the available evidence is strongly against that assumption."
