Opponents to the theory of evolution often point out the lack of transitional fossils/organisms; I believe this is due to a misunderstanding of transitional species.
The theory of evolution argues that all life on earth is continually under change; it is never static. With this in mind, every organism can be seen as transitional. Some animals are more noticeably transitional than others. Alligators, for instance, live both on land and in water. Ostrichs are birds that can not fly and pinguins are birds that have adapted to swim. Are these not excellent examples of transitional organisms?
Please share your arguments for or against this idea and any other comments you may have; however, please stay on topic.
