Darwinism expects that there should be the gradual change of lifeforms over time. But this isn’t what is actually found: we see lifeforms that are complete and effective, not in transition with some parts almost working, and other parts not quite working.
It’s hard to live, if parts of your body don’t work.
Darwinians then claimed that the fossil record is incomplete: it does not contain the transitioning lifeforms merely by happenstance.
That’s where Bechly comes in:
Darwinian gradualism predicts biological forms evolving gradually from one to another. However, it is widely acknowledged that this is not what the fossil record shows. Darwinists have long suggested that the fossil record’s pattern of major discontinuities is merely an artifact of that record being incomplete. But on a new episode of ID the Future, paleoentomologist Günter Bechly makes the case that recent findings have put the nails in the coffin of this “artifact hypothesis.” He goes on to argue that these findings are “not just a tiny problem but a fatal problem” for modern Darwinism.
