What does the fossil record show concerning the appearance of all basic animal body types? The following quotes are representative of what has been found after extensive searching by an army of evolutionary paleontologists over the past 150 years. These statements by evolutionary scientists are both contextual and relevant to what the fossil record actually reveals:

“All paleontologists know that the fossil record contains precious little in the way of intermediate forms; transitions between major groups are characteristically abrupt.”

“Despite the bright promise that paleontology provides of 'seeing' evolution, it has presented some nasty difficulties for evolutionists, the most notorious of which is the presence of 'gaps' in the fossil record.”

“No real evolutionist, whether gradualist or punctuationist, uses the fossil record as evidence in favor of the theory of evolution as opposed to special creation…”

“The known fossil record fails to document a single example of phyletic evolution accomplishing a major morphologic transition.”

Evolutionists have lined up some fossils which seem to fill small gaps between closely related creatures. However, accepting small transitions as evidence in support of the grand evolution scenario is like believing a single stepping stone proves that a bridge once spanned the Mississippi River in the same location.

Evolution requires transitional forms between the most basic animal groups-yet none exist. Creation asserts that there never were transitions between basic kinds of life. This is exactly what the fossil record shows. What better evidence for creation could there be?
