Paleontologists ever since Darwin have been searching (largely in vain) for the sequences of insensibly graded series of fossils that would stand as examples of the sort of wholesale transformation of species that Darwin envisioned as the natural product of the evolutionary process.Few saw any reason to demur - though it is a startling Paleontologists cannot operate this way.They could attack the age of the earth; because if the earth was more than a few thousands of years old, then the Bible was not telling the truth.If the Bible were not telling the truth about the age of the earth then you could not trust it to be telling the truth about anything else.
It is not true, as anyone who thinks about it will agree; but it is what they want to believe.Niles Eldredge, Curator, Division of Paleontology, American Museum of Natural History, New York City, since 1969, has written that the fossils cannot be used to date the rocks that they are found in.One reason for this is that we now know that all animal and plant kinds are found all the way back to the beginning of Cambrian layers.He wrote about there only being a few kinds of creatures to start with and that these multiplied into many kinds over time.
Benoit de Maillet (1656-1738) wrote that fish had become birds, mammals and men.
Pierre-Louis Maupertuis (1698-1759) published a book in 1751 in which he concluded that new species resulted from the recombining of different parts of living animals.
