I am reading Douglas FutuymaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Evolution, which, like his previous textbook Evolutionary Biology, will probably become the standard college text on evolution. On pages 48 and 49 Futuyma lists the Ã¢â‚¬Å“proofsÃ¢â‚¬Â of evolution. I find the list interesting not so much for what it includes but for what it excludes Ã¢â‚¬â€œ transitions in the fossil record. If the leading college text on evolution no longer appeals to transitions in the fossil record as proof that evolution occurred, is it safe to say that the case on the fossil record is now closed, and the Darwinists have ceded the field to their victorious opponents? Just asking.
