There are no transitional fossils!

Over the years I’ve done a fair few bits and pieces of fun that I’ve wanted to blog about and never really got around to. So I’m going to start feeding these in, as and when they occur to me, so I can blog a bit more frequently.

First up in the retrospective category, then, is Transitional Fossil, a quick one-gag website for those occasions when creationists bleat one of the following:

  • There are no transitional fossils!
  • Where are all the transitional fossils?
  • What is a transitional fossil?
  • If evolution was true, there should be millions of transitional fossils!

Can’t be arsed arguing? Send them to Transitional Fossil:

Evidence. It works.

I find it’s particularly useful on the Religion and Spirituality board at Yahoo! Answers, a never ending love-fest of trolls trolling trolls.

    In one sense, they’re right…all species are in transition, so all fossils are “transitional.” I you look it at that way, then calling some fossils “transitional” doesn’t make any sense, unless you mean that these particular fossils represent a transition between two phyla.

    All fossils are “transitional.” Don’t you think ?

    As George Orwell said*, all fossils are transitional, but some are more transitional than others.

    You’re both right, I believe. But Tiktaalik is beautiful in that it is a striking example of the in-betweeny kind of beast that a non-expert might have in mind when asking ‘where are the transitional fossils?’. It’s no crocoduck, but by golly it’s a fish with legs.

    The image links to the wikipedia page for Tiktaalik, should my site pique the curiosity enough.

    * George Orwell did not say this.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. Nevertheless imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche. Wonderful blog!

    A few things i have seen in terms of computer system memory is the fact that there are specific features such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must match up the technical specs of the mother board. If the personal computer’s motherboard is rather current while there are no operating-system issues, upgrading the memory space literally will take under a couple of hours. It’s one of many easiest pc upgrade methods one can envision. Thanks for expressing your ideas.
