How do you define “science”? The website dictionary.reference.com defines science (in part) as:
- a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws.
- systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.
Darwinan evolutionists believe that as a result of repeated undirected favorable cellular mutation, all life forms evolved from a common ancestor. It is their belief that no matter what creature you may be, your ancestry is the same. So, therefore, all life on earth came from the same primordial goo. They note that this process would take a very, very long time to occur.
Interestingly enough, the fossil record shows no sign of this. If this were so, our planet’s fossil record would be replete with transitional species, but it is not. What our fossil record does show is a relative explosion of life in a comparatively very short period of time, usually referred to as the “Cambrian Explosion”. And still no transitional fossil record has been found.
Does this appear to fit the definition of science? To me, it appears to be an attempt to find an answer that fits one’s opinion and not to follow where empirical evidence leads.

Also of interest is that Charles Darwin himself admits to the fallacy of this line of reasoning. Refer to the following at x-evolutionist.com
The several difficulties here discussed, namely our not finding in the successive formations infinitely numerous transitional links between the many species which now exist or have existed; the sudden manner in which whole groups of species appear in our European formations; the almost entire absence, as at present known, of fossiliferous formations beneath the Silurian strata, are all undoubtedly of the gravest nature. – Charles Darwin
