The Fossil Record

Barry Lynn: Every time we find 16 new...fossils to fill in the so-called fossil record that was missing, you just say find 16 more. So my question to you is how many 16 to the what power do we have to discover before you accept this as true?

David Berlinski: I'll tell you exactly. Here's what Darwinian theory rigorously requires. For every significant...morphological or physiological feature in a modern species we should have a panoply of intermediate forms that explains how they arise...We don't have them for some good reasons, but we have nothing like an explanation for the gaps that exist.
