<quoted text>It can theoretically work on anyone. Being a critical thinker does not preclude one from experiencing it. I would assume that positive placebo like effects resulting from belief/faith are out of the question for the "critical thinker," but certainly not the traditional placebo effect seen in medical trials/research studies, etc.
Like I said, you have to "believe", to *know*, not suspect, or hope or wish. "Your" type of critical thinking is full of doubt; there is no power in doubt.

Transitional fossil
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A transitional fossil is any fossilized remains of a life form that exhibits traits common to both an ancestral group and its derived descendant group. This is especially important where the descendant group is sharply differentiated by gross anatomy and mode of living from the ancestral group. These fossils serve as a reminder that taxonomic divisions are human constructs that have been imposed in hindsight on a continuum of variation. Because of the incompleteness of the fossil record, there is usually no way to know exactly how close a transitional fossil is to the point of divergence. Therefore, transitional fossils cannot be assumed to be direct ancestors of more recent groups, though they are frequently used as models for such ancestors.
However, it is almost impossible to be sure that any form represented in the fossil record is a direct ancestor of any other.
it would help. if you read the COMPLETE site and not just cherry pick parts of it,

Limitations of the fossil record [edit]

Further information: Fossils
Not every transitional form appears in the fossil record, because the fossil record is not complete. Organisms are only rarely preserved as fossils in the best of circumstances, and only a fraction of such fossils have been discovered. Paleontologist Donald Prothero noted that this is illustrated by the fact that the number of species known through the fossil record was less than 5% of the number of known living species, suggesting that the number of species known through fossils must be far less than 1% of all the species that have ever lived.[38]
Because of the specialized and rare circumstances required for a biological structure to fossilize, only a very small percentage of all life-forms that have ever existed can be expected to be represented in discoveries, and each discovery represents only a snapshot of the process of evolution. The transition itself can only be illustrated and corroborated by transitional fossils, which will never demonstrate an exact half-way point between clearly divergent forms.[39]
The fossil record is very uneven and, with few exceptions, is heavily slanted toward organisms with hard parts, leaving most groups of soft-bodied organisms with little to no fossil record.[38] The groups considered to have a good fossil record, including a number of transitional fossils between traditional groups, are the vertebrates, the echinoderms, the brachiopods and some groups of arthropods.[40]

Einstein doubted Newton. Tesla doubted Edison. There is a lot more power in doubt than blind acceptance of what someone says, especially if you do that just to be popular.

Wikipedia is wrong sometimes, because that is not what a transitional form is. You are a transitional form, for example.

I understand it now , the creationist has to believe genesis is true.
If it is not true then the whole bible is based on lies, hence the denial of anything that conflicts with their fantasy version of reality. There can't be transitional animals , that shows evolution and throws a monkey wrench in creationism.

The fun thing is that it betrays how stupid they are.
Yep. Well said, both of you. I'm sure you've both heard of the term confirmation bias...

LOL, of course timmy, of course.. Anything or anyone that disagrees with evolution, and has proven your fantasy of evolution to be just that, is either disliked or ignorant. Ohhh, and the other excuse is, well they are not excepted in the "main stream" of science..
What are you talking about? I said that the term itself (the 'god particle') is disliked. I did not say that the people who use it are disliked. And why are you talking about evolution?

You seem quite confused.

Critical thinking is necessarily full of doubt. It does not work without it. The power to figure out what is true, and what is not true, is dependent on the ability to doubt. We are also dependent on working methodologies, those that have been proven to make accurate predictions. We place trust in methodologies, but we never place so much trust in a methodology that we disregard errors in the process as having anything to do with the methodology. Even our ways of knowing must occasionally be doubted, tested, and affirmed, or rejected.

Knowing that there are some things we can't know, won't know, or don't know, is extremely important. Acknowledgement of ignorance is essential. Doubt is an actual virtue, whereas faith is a mistake.

Yep, and people are starting to see through this effect of their delusion. It is only a matter of time when religious stupidstitions are finally discarded for reality and logic.
