Goldschmidt, a geneticist at the University of California at Berkeley,
listed a series of complex structures from the hair of mammals
that he thought could not have been produced by the thousands of years
of small mutations. As Goldschmidt put it."To
suppose that such a random
event could reconstruct even a single complex organ like a liver or
kidney is about as reasonable as to suppose that an improved watch can
be designed by throwing an old one against the wall.

would not be fitting in discussing the implications
of Evolution to leave the evolution of the horse out of the discussion.
The evolution of the horse provides one of the keystones in the teaching
of evolutionary doctrine, though the actual story depends to a large extent
upon who is telling it and when the story is being told. In fact one could
easily discuss the evolution of the story of the evolution of the horse."

evolution of the genetic

one can speculate

our imagination so far has not been very helpful."

(animal breeding), instructor of Biology, California Polytechnic State

fossils appear to be restricted to rocks of a relatively limited geological
age span. These are called 'index fossils'. Whenever a rock is found bearing
such a fossil, its approximate age is automatically established....This
method is not foolproof. Occasionally an organism, previously thought to
be extinct, is found to be extant. Such 'living fossils' obviously cannot
function as index fossils except within the broader time span of their

is obvious that radiometric
techniques may not be the absolute dating methods that they are claimed
to be. Age estimates on a given geological stratum
by different radiometric methods are often quite different, sometimes by
hundreds of millions of years. There is no absolutely reliable long term
radiological 'clock'. The uncertainties inherent
in radiometric dating are disturbing to geologists and evolutionists..."
