Morphological Similarities are NOT Fossilized Transitional Forms

Where, oh where, are the transitional forms? They do not exist, which relegates your fanciful musing to the "mere speculation" junk pile. You have zero physical transitional fossil evidence for your assertions, and that is not hard science, because science sooner or later demands proof, and you have none. Worse, you require hard evidence from others, yet you have none yourself, thus breaking the very rules you claim to live by. Hypocrisy on parade, and desperate at that.

Oh, wait. Could you possibly be referring to Darwin's whale bears? Yes, your comments would fit right in with Darwin's "Just So" story, about How the Whale Learned to Swim. (I will share that story at another time. It is hilarious!)

Interesting, but more fit for a child's storybook.

"Secondly, we encourage everyone to go to the postings specifically covering the 'walking whales' folly. It's a very sad indicator of what is considered 'science.'(The postings are a couple of pages back.)"

Yes, read how very specific characteristics of cetacean (whale) ears were present in terrestrial ancestors. These characteristics persisted as the whale ear evolved to a system better adapted for life in the water.

Read how these terrestrial whales shared a specific ankle structure (the astragalus) that is common to even-toed ungulates (artiodactyls). Note that this structure persisted even after whales became marine creatures.

Other morphological characteristics correspond with the changing lifestyle of these creatures from fully terrestrial to obligate aquatic animals. Legs, hips, spine, and skulls all evolve to forms more suitable to aquatic life. Note that the teeth provide further evidence of this change in oxygen isotope ratios. These animals moved from land out to sea and the elements in their teeth document this occurred.

Note that protein and genetic evidence also pointed to an artiodactyl ancestory of whales. Also note that the age of the fossils corresponds with the geological changes in the eastern end of the Tethys sea where these early whales evolved.

Finally, notice that WiYC can't explain any of this evidence and finally drops each and every point.
