  • As a result of the Jan. 21 MT article extolling the website promoting evolution for teachers and kids, the March 21 response by Raymond Steinbroner displays a lack of knowledge regarding transitional forms in the fossil record when he states that "currently many transitional forms abound."
    Although this fallacious argument is commonly used by evolutionists, it is not surprising that Mr. Steinbroner gives no examples but launches into a diatribe of biblical prophecies. This is not unexpected as a lack of transitional forms in the fossil record has been echoed by multiple renowned evolutionary scientists such as British zoologist Mark Ridley: "No real evolutionist uses the fossil record as evidence in favor of the theory as opposed to special creation," and the late Stephen J. Gould from Harvard: "The absence of fossil evidence for intermediary stages between major transitions has been a persistent and nagging problem for gradualist accounts of evolution, and is the trade secret of paleontology." Perhaps Mr. Steinbroner should have consulted with the opinions of Mr. Gould and Ridley before making false assertions. — John Mittendorf, Medford
