this poses something of a problem: if we date the rocks by their fossils,
how can we then turn around and talk about patterns of evolutionary change
through time in the fossil record?"
In other words 'if on one
hand, we use the fossils to date rocks, we can't use that criterion
as basis for mouthing off about evolutionary change, because the dated
rock records fail in showing any transitional fossils'.
