I was at the bookstore again today, and guess what I came across? Ray Comfort's new book about Evolution. I am now thoroughly convinced that the man is either dishonest to the core or insane. Every page was filled with nonsense, misquotes, and misinformation. What can only be described as intellectual violence was done to the ideas of the late Stephen Jay Gould. Comfort quotes him out of context to make it appear as if he said that wings could not evolve, yet a look at the referenced article shows that Gould was only describing the problem of evolving wings... Before illustrating a convincing model for wing evolution and how it had been scientifically tested.
Even worse is the fact that Comfort quoted Ernst Mayr as saying that there were gaps in the fossil record. I decided to go to the science section and look at Mayr's book What Evolution Is and the quote in question. I found that quickly after the quote Mayr stated that the fossil record is expected to be incomplete because only a tiny percentage of corpses fossilize; Besides, geological processes often destroy fossils. Nevertheless, Mayr tells us that there is an excellent sequence of fossils showing the evolution of mammals from reptiles. Indeed there is, and you can see it for yourself.
