Dr. Jobe Martin's book, The Evolution of a Creationist, covers the fossil record in chapter 4. This book can be downloaded for free - http://biblicaldiscipleship.org/content ... e-download
The bottom line is that in the fossil record there are fish, turtles, cockroaches, etc. that are all distinct, identifiable creatures. We see fish, turtles, and cockroaches alive today as well. There is no fossil evidence for the "missing links." Where are the fossils that are 50% fish and 50% reptile? Or 50% turtle and 50% chipmunk? If evolution were true, fossils should be hard to identify and hard to classify. Evolutionists say the elephants went back in the water and evolved into manatees - but where is the fossil evidence? There is none. Fossil evidence does not support transitional life forms, but rather separate and distinct created kinds.
