An evolutionist who helped creationists

Reformed Perspective published another insight full article. This one is about Stephen Gould, a scientist who believes in evolution, but criticizes the common representation of the fossil record.

“The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology. The evolutionary trees that adorn our textbooks have data only at the tips and nodes of their branches; the rest is inference, however reasonable, not the evidence of the fossils” (Natural History May 1977 p. 14).

Certainly worth reading, as is so much what is written by Dr. Margaret Helder.
