According to the fossil record, life forms emerged independently of one another, each one in a single moment, and with no line of familial descent between them. Fish, for example, did not emerge from invertebrate life forms, as evolutionists maintain, and neither did they later turn into reptiles. In his 1991 book Beyond Natural Selection, the American paleontologist R. Wesson describes what the fossil record tells us about the emergence of life: "The gaps in the fossil record are real, however. The absence of a record of any important [evolutionary] branching is quite phenomenal. Species are usually static, or nearly so, for long periods . . ." (R. Wesson, Beyond Natural Selection, Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 1991, p. 45)
