My Year of Darwin 12/18/2014: Great source of intermediates from a leading creationist

 Charles Darwin

"With respect to the Vertebrata, whole pages could be filled with striking illustrations from our great palaeontologist, Owen, showing how extinct animals fall in between existing groups. Cuvier ranked the Ruminants and Pachyderms, as the two most distinct orders of mammals; but Owen has discovered so many fossil links, that he has to alter the whole classification of these two orders."  Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 1st edition (on Kindle)

The National Audubon Society's facebook page referred to the recent issue of Science that had several articles on avian evolution and, of course, even though it's 2014, a woman claimed there were no intermediates. I just don't get it.
