Archaeopteryx is not an example of a species transitioning from one species to another, your definition of transitional is completely inaccurate because none of the examples you sight appear to be in any transition. Arcaeopteryx is a fully functional life form, it's wings, it's respiratory system and all the other attributes you mention are completely formed, no portion of Archaeoptryx is in any way visibly transforming, it's either completed transition or it never transitioned at all, which is evidence in support of creation. A transitional fossil would be something in between stages of evolution, and no fossil of such has ever been found. What would the evidence for creation show? It would show all life forms fully functional and nothing in transition, and that's what we find. I might as well get this out of the way now, it's clear you're going to make the tired old argument of homology. Homolgy is evidence of a creator as much as it's evidence of evolution. If life were created, the prediction would be that the creator would use the same systems repeatedly. Why do all cars have four wheels, because it's an efficient design, so EVERY car maker makes a four wheeled car. The hand has a thumb and four fingers, it is as efficient a design as can be for it's purpose. No thumb or one less finger would make the hand less efficient, and more than four fingers and a thumb would be redundant.

In order for me to believe in creationism I would have to ignore nearly 200 years of science and all the physical evidence that has been accumulated and believe that 3000 years ago a bunch of ignorant goat herders, not even the most enlightened people of their time, got it all exactly right. That would be completely irrational.

Ok.....what have we got cooking here? Oh, I love your use of the English language! Are you sure you are not an English professor! Because you really ares so well spoken and articulate! I guess you are a jack of all trades!!! You know a little bit about a lot of stuff! OR...A LOT of stuff about A LOT of stuff! I think it is the latter, don't you? Anyway......this whole transitional fossil thing is kinda confusing!  I mean, can't all the animals and people be made of the same materials? So, yeah...we ARE all kinda the same.....doesn't mean we came from same initial creature or whatever. Just the same material used to create...like, by GOD. Hey! You know the levels of fossils? Why are they named like some of the states her in the USA? Like Pennsylvanian and Mississippian and all that? Hmmmnn.... I will have to look that up now! The whole carbon dating thing is really hard for me to understand! I hate it!! Even when I pay close attention! Maybe that is why I do not believe in it! Too hard to comprehend ! It amazes me how you can wrap your mind around all this science stuff! Everyone I know (with the exception of my eldest son) believes in everything you talk about....so I am basically looked upon like a freak!  Oh well! It is the cross I bare in life! Maybe you like freaks......we can be a lot of fun! Well, nice video! Nicer voice!

Although Darwin might have predicted it would be in Africa, it wasn't until up in the 20th century that it was really accepted - up til then most scientist expected our origin to be in Asia and had a hard time accepting it should be in Africa! I bet it's really hard for anybody to guess why it was so.... 😜 I learned this in a interview with professor in history of evolution Peter C. Kjærgaard and I couldn't help thinking how typical it is, we always get told that scientists is unbiased, but it's sadly not always true! Had they been less biased, we probably would have learned that humans originated in Africa far earlier.....

Nice job! I can see why it took you so long to put it together...plenty of interesting information and well presented. The only thing I have found to be "questionable" from a Creationist standpoint is the timeline of 6,000 years. I know some are saying this and they are basing the date on the Bible but the Bible doesn't give anything specific in terms of when anything happened. There are things here that are out of my current understanding that I can't even speculate on and will need to do much research to even comment on some of them but there are many things that I question or have questioned and found answers for. Anyway...looking forward to seeing the rest of your work and, again, really great job! Whether I believe it all or not doesn't take away from your earning kudos...:)

Well! I will say you are obviously very intelligent, educated and articulate! And even though I absolutely DO NOT agree with your belief system, I do enjoy hearing your awesome voice and if anyone could convince me of the validity of evolution, it would definitely be you sir! However , I am sticking with my creationist beliefs. God Bless!

I'd examine the evidence for creationism if someone could actually provide me with some....... I'm talking about actual evidence here. Every creature is a transition between what came before it and what will come after it.

It's interesting that Creationists claim intermediates must always be species to species. This of course is not true as an intermediate can be between major groups e.g. archaeopteryx is an intermediate between dinos and birds. They don't seem to grasp that fossilisation, especially of land organisms, is rare yet the fossils that we do have still exhibit a clear pattern of change over geological time.

God must have used both supernatural means as well as natural processes such as micro-evolution and in some cases macro-evolution to create all life on earth ! Jesus admitted to a Christian Korean artist named Hwa bi Jung that He and His Father and Holy Spirit created our great universe more than 13.7 billion years ago. They created our earth more than 4.5 billion years ago and they were creating the body of humans for hundreds of thousands of years before they created Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden(probably 30,000-60,000 years ago) with a Spirit. Young earth creationism is false ! See old earth creationist Dr. Hugh Ross cd`s Dissecting Evolution : A closer look at a controversial theory at reasons to believe.org !

According to the Hebrew scriptures, the entire universe was created on the fourth day for no reason other than to give light to the earth and "for signs and for seasons". According to some Hindu scriptures, innumerable universes are continually being brought into existence, each with its own creator - the Hebrew deity, perhaps, being one of these.

All that evidence in a 12-minute video.. And yet it is only a tiny fraction of all the evidence supporting evolution and a 4.5-billion-year-old earth. A vast amount of interlocking evidence from many scientific fields. Think of an iceberg, representing the amount of evidence supporting evolution. Think of the tenth of the iceberg that is above the surface of the sea. Now think of a snowflake landing on the iceberg. This video (which is excellent) can only hope to present a snowflake's worth of evidence in 12 minutes. So when the creationists pop up trying to dismiss some points in this video, remember it's just a snowflake in the iceberg of evidence science has amassed. It's just they are too brainwashed by their cult to believe it, and/or too stupid to understand it.

Why is archeopterix transitional fossil? It could be as well argued that frog is transitional fossil between ameba and man because all share dna. You have no emperical proof to demonstrate in laboratory such transition. When we induce mutations we see only degenerant mutants (see experiments on fruit flies). Only what you have is secondary circumstantial evidence which you interpret to fit your story of how ameba turned into a human.
