|...As it stands, Daniel says that one doesn't see something in the fossil record, but he doesn't seem to have any clear notion of just what it is or what actual paleontologists would call it.|
My main source for my argument about paleontology is Otto Schindewolf's "Basic Questions in Paleontology".
But that's a book, not the primary literature. Were you deliberately misleading us when you claimed to be interested in evidence?
|I'm pretty sure Schindewolf qualifies as an "actual paleontologist".|
But the opinions of an actual paleontologist aren't actual evidence.
|Did you read the quotes I supplied from that book in any of my posts so far?|
But quotes aren't evidence, either.
You didn't answer my other pointed question: have you ever read a paper from the PRIMARY literature? I mean those papers with actual, new data in them--we real scientists often read them by looking at the figures and tables, because unlike you, we value evidence over opinion.
