Please don't use the lame excuse, "quote mining", as quotes are used everywhere in the media. schools, etc.

But when, 140 years later, Prof. Steve Jones of University College London published an updated version of Darwin's Origin of Species in 1999, the fossil record still posed the same problem.

The fossil record - in defiance of Darwin's whole idea of gradual change - often makes great leaps from one form to the next. Far from the display of intermediates to be expected from slow advance through natural selection many species appear without warning, persist in fixed form and disappear, leaving no descendants. Geology assuredly does not reveal any finely graduated organic chain, and this is the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against the theory of evolution." (Almost Like a Whale, p. 252)

The Cambrian explosion

About half of the major animal groups appear, fully formed, in the Cambrian strata of rocks, with out any fossilised ancestors. This is how Richard Dawkins [alias Dr chicken], Professor for the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford, describes it:

...the Cambrian strata of rocks, vintage about 600 million years, are the oldest ones in which we find most of the major invertebrate groups. And we find many of them already in an advanced state of evolution, the very first time they appear. It is as thought they were just planted there, without any evolutionary history. Needless to say, this appearance of sudden planting has delighted creationists." (The Blind Watchmaker, p. 229)
