In his 1991 book Beyond Natural Selection, the American paleontologist R. Wesson describes the information provided by the fossil record regarding the origin of life: The gaps in the record are real, however. The absence of a record of any important branching is quite phenomenal. Species are usually static, ... for long periods, ... genera never show evolution... (R. Wesson, Beyond Natural Selection, Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, , 1991, p. 45.) Darwinist propaganda, indoctrination and myth are all made meaningless by this fact, demonstrated by countless proofs. Like the 8.9-million-year-old brown bear skull pictured, all fossils show that evolution is a hollow theory.
