Geology and Paleontology
Goldschmidt, of the University of California
"...in 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
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
Professor Kerner, one of the leading
botanists in the world at Cambridge University
"...to 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
Thomas Huxley, British biologist who championed
"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
