Fossil Record is the Final Court of appeal
Thus the fossil record of various species shows that while there was great variety within each species, these had no links to evolutionary ancestors before them. Nor did they have any evolutionary links to different kinds of living beings that came after them. Zoologist Coffin stated, "To secular scientists, the fossils, evidences of the life of the past, constitute the ultimate and final court of appeal, because the fossil record is the only authentic history of life available to science. If this fossil history does not agree with evolutionary theory - and we have seen that it does not - what does it teach? It tells us that plants and animals were created in their basic forms. The basic facts of the fossil record support creation, not evolution." Astronomer Carl Sagan candidly acknowledged in his book 'Cosmos', "The fossil evidence could be consistent with the idea of a Great Designer."
