Finally, the last great piece of evidence for intelligent design is the lack of transitional forms in the fossil record. Where are the transitional forms? The fossils that show a transitional change of one species to another completely different species. If evolution is fact, there must be many transitional forms. Even Darwin wrote about it in his book On the Origin of Species, “The number of intermediate varieties which have formerly existed on earth must be truly enormous (Darwin 291). Where are they? According to A.J. Monty White, “Since Darwin’s time, however, literally millions of fossils have been found, but still the transitional forms are absent (292). The transitional forms are absent!
What about the supposed “missing links”, or what about Haeckel’s embryos? O.K., well, what about the supposed missing links? A.J. does it again, “Most so-called missing links fall into three categories: extinct ape, living ape, or human (292). Not ape-human, or extinct human gorilla, but three separately different species. The so called missing link Lucy, known as Australopithecus afarensis, was actually an extinct ape. Lucy was created to look like an ape-human demonstrating bipedal locomotion, but the bones were later revealed to be pure ape. What a hoax? Some evolutionists even tried to create some type of ape-human by commixing the bones of apes and humans. That is wrong. It is one thing in finding crucial evidence, but creating evidence for a handsome benefit of disproving Intelligent Design. I don’t get it, but it does prove that scientists are still desperately trying to find that one single form of transitional evidence. This leads us right into Haeckel’s infamous embryos. Haeckel’s embryos were primarily created to reveal that mammals evolved from fish. A fish has gill slits, so Haeckel tried to prove that humans, in the early embryonic stages, have gill slits as well. These human “gill slits” were drawn on the embryos to prove that the development of fish is similar to the development of humans. This is just another example of the deceiving nature of human beings in creating evidence rather than in finding factual evidence. Most of all though, the lack of transitional forms in the fossil record presents a big gap in the fossil record that could only be filled by intelligent design.
In conclusion, the faculties of irreducible complexity, the laws of nature, and the lack of transitional forms in the fossil record produce astounding logistical, scientific, and basic evidences, for the support of an Intelligent Designer. Based on the overwhelming evidence presented and my own beliefs, I believe that a God had to have created this world with the intricate design of his own hands. The complex design of the universe with the many logistical factors in between proves that there is a God, and he alone should receive all the praise, honor, and glory.
