Bridging the Gaps

Anthropologist Jeffrey H. Schwartz of the University of Pittsburgh argues that transitional fossils aren't missing. They were never there in the first place.

Schwartz isn't a creationist. He's convinced by the evidence for common descent, but doesn't believe gradualism and adaptation are the mechanisms that drive evolution.

New species, Schwartz believes, emerged suddenly due to genetic alterations that created sharp differences with their predecessors, according to a report by Mark Roth in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
