For example, Darwin was not going to argue that humans are the ultimate ancestor of all lifeforms, or vertebrate fish. That would contradict the fossil-order. The evolution theory has to match up with the fossil order. so I am very far from confused or rambling. I think it is dishonest and improper for you to suggest I am, given I am far from it.

What did Darwin say was the ultimate ancestor of all lifeforms? And what did Darwin know of the fossil record? Your conclusion is pretty clear. The fossil record is indeed confirmation. We can agree that things like not putting humans at the beginning is not surprising, but most of the information we have about the fossil record is post Darwin. Darwin reasoned based on similarities he could observe, like the horse and tapir (see chapter 8 of origin of species). But in the same chapter he remarks on how poorly the geological record is known in his day. And the science of genetics was foreign to Darwin.

Your objection is completely unfounded.

We won't find a cow in the pre-cambrian because we know they're not there, tends to be small lifeforms, note that pollen has been found in the pre-cambrian but evolutionists have labelled such evidence, "anomolous"

All of those things you are citing as facts are also absolute denials of the YEC interpretation of the Bible. They also are pretty close to being denials of special creation in a one week period. One might well wonder what your point might be.
