The Missing Link

Hello Thinkers!        ( Missing-Link) - Transitional fossils (popularly termed missing links) are the fossilized remains of intermediary forms of life that illustrate an evolutionary transition. (sourced from Wikipedia)

I feel like talking about the subject of the so called, "Missing Link". So it's familar yes? Of course, It's a very common term used quite ubiquiously in todays' society. You see it in television shows, advertising, and yes...creationist refutes. 

Well Im here today to explain to you why there really is NO missing link. Its very simple, and here is what you need to know:

The so called "Missing Link" DOES NOT EXIST.  As you can see in the definition i provided you above, A missing link is nothing more than a transitional fossil which is used to illustrate evolutionary transitions. So if we are looking at all of the transitions on record in the Genus: Homo, we will see several intermediate fossils that continuously branch off and split and change until it eventually ends with Man. Creationists argue that we could not have evolved from these prior specimens because we can not provide them "The Missing Link".      wow....really guys? REALLY? we have hundreds of fossils that represent our Genus. Even more than MOST species that have been filed and categorized. What do you mean when you ask us for a "missing link"? what are you talking about?

Ex: If i took a photo of myself every day until i was 90 years old, and gave you all but ONE photo, would you not believe I came from the photo number: 6,935 (19 years old)...EVEN though, there is visual evidence that in all the other photos BEFORE and AFTER that photo?

Point being guys, 1 missing fossil, if it may be missing at all, does NOT disprove our evolutionary origins.


  1. Very informative, had never thought about it like that

  2. What an interesting take on evolution. I can't wait to read more from you!

  3. yeah you got a good point about the human body changing so much over a lifetime. too bad all those bones rot away over millions of years.

  4. Nice clear example at the end, good stuff

  5. You are so much more then I originally thought! :) This is awesome! I love talking and learning about evolution! :D (from

  6. Very good post, make this argument very often to people. Thank you for letting me know i am not alone.
