What trips me out about evolution is that there isn't any transitional fossils found. There has to be dozens of them in order for evolution to be 100% true. Yet not one is found. Why?!? All we see is that plants and animals reproduce after their own kind and nothing more. There isn't ANY EVIDENCE WHAT-SO-EVER that supports animals evolving into something else other than their own kind. There is no transition and the fossil record proves that. So why do people feel that evolution is the whole truth and nothing but?!

Totally agree. Let me warn ya though, I know this crowd, they'll turn you upside down with scientific hoo hah and have you half way questioning your own question in a matter of a few posts. If you're gonna ask that question, take my advice, stick to that question and make em produce the transitional fossil evidence...good luck!!!:)

Every fossil is a "transitional fossil." But if you are talking specifically about animals that appear to be "in between" two other animals, there are plenty of examples. Many of humanity's recent ancestors, for instance.

How about human ancestral fossils that have pelvises that are very human like, but not quite? Which, of course, suggests a slow transition to bipedalism. In addition to many other traits that are "in between." Transitional enough? I think the problem is that when the average creationist asks for a "transitional fossil," they aren't really quite sure what they want. Transitional fossils are everywhere, with several prominent examples.

Expound on that...humanity's recent ancestors...

Many things I could expound on. The ever increasing brain size found in our recent ancestors. Feet that go from being well adapted to climbing to being well adapted to walking upright. Go look at an artist's rendering of homo habilis, then homo ergaster, then homo eructus, then read up on them. Wiki can teach you a lot more than me. There is a clear progression from "ape like" to "human like." Even eructus, which is clearly on the "human like" side of the scale, displays a wide pelvis that is not quite suited to bipedalism.

I think the issue is that when people say "transitional fossil," they want some set in stone, clear 50/50 mix of two different species. That's not how it works. Small changes happen over time - it's not like one day a monkey woke up with a big brain, then the next day it woke up as a modern human.

Prove it. Where are these fossils that appear "in between"

Aren't you on a computer? You can go to so many sights and see thousands of fossils. They explain it all, you can chat with other interested people and even ask questions of the many different scientists, fossil hunter's, etc.
These fossils haven't only been dug up and studied by one group of people, but by scientists from all over the world. All coming up with the same conclusions.
Type in evolution.

Ugh. This is pointless. You didn't ask me to expand on anything. You said "the macro world does not follow the laws of quantum physics therefore quantum physics is 'false.'"

Am I really supposed to respond to that?
