|Fortunately, the fossil record here in the RealWorld does contain various transitional fossils, so your question doesn't arise.|
I think there is enough evidence to say, the fossil record does NOT confirm the ToE :
Did Darwin also predict that lots of fossils with soft tissue, proteins, collagen, and non-permineralized, would be found ??
In Explaining the Cambrian Explosion, Has the TalkOrigins Archive Resolved Darwin’s Dilemma? – JonathanM – May 2012
Excerpt: it is the pattern of morphological disparity preceding diversity that is fundamentally at odds with the neo-Darwinian scenario of gradualism. All of the major differences (i.e. the higher taxonomic categories such as phyla) appear first in the fossil record and then the lesser taxonomic categories such as classes, orders, families, genera and species appear later. On the Darwinian view, one would expect to see all of the major differences in body plan appear only after numerous small-scale speciation events. But this is not what we observe.

“In Chen’s view, his evidence supports a history of life that runs opposite to the standard evolutionary tree diagrams, a progression he calls top-down evolution.”

Scientific study turns understanding about evolution on its head – July 30, 2013
Excerpt: evolutionary biologists,,, looked at nearly one hundred fossil groups to test the notion that it takes groups of animals many millions of years to reach their maximum diversity of form.
Contrary to popular belief, not all animal groups continued to evolve fundamentally new morphologies through time. The majority actually achieved their greatest diversity of form (disparity) relatively early in their histories.
,,,Dr Matthew Wills said: “This pattern, known as ‘early high disparity’, turns the traditional V-shaped cone model of evolution on its head. What is equally surprising in our findings is that groups of animals are likely to show early-high disparity regardless of when they originated over the last half a billion years. This isn’t a phenomenon particularly associated with the first radiation of animals (in the Cambrian Explosion), or periods in the immediate wake of mass extinctions.”,,,
Author Martin Hughes, continued: “Our work implies that there must be constraints on the range of forms within animal groups, and that these limits are often hit relatively early on.
Co-author Dr Sylvain Gerber, added: “A key question now is what prevents groups from generating fundamentally new forms later on in their evolution.,,,
|Do you, or do you not, have evidence of "information-rich systems" being produced by "intelligent agents" other than human beings?|
Once its granted that non-intelligence mechanisms are unable to create information-rich systems, your question is moot.
We know that intelligence outside of the human realm is possible. We have lots and lots of evidence of dualism, and out-of the body experiences, and near death experiences, which indicate that intelligence can exist without being bond to the physical body.
Hey Otangelo, ElShamah, etc., did allah-yahoo-satan-yeshoo-holy-spook "predict that lots of fossils with soft tissue, proteins, collagen, and non-permineralized, would be found"? Is there such a prediction in the bible and koran? LOL
"We know that...". "We" do, in the way that you're asserting?
I accept that some organisms other than humans are 'intelligent' to some degree, but what you're spewing is delusional bullshit.
