They have a lot more than a partial skull. This is just one of the three found.

.......and no observation of it being produced by a lesser form and no observation of it changing into a superior form.

It is not a question of "lesser" or "superior".

They have preceding fish "forms", and later amphibian "forms" like Ichthyostega.

Tiktaalik has fins with wrists and simple digits. Fin/legs are a good illustration of transition.

{ABE} Realising that the topic is dating, I'll add that the discoverers of Tiktaalik were deliberately looking for such a creature in rocks that they knew were dated to the right period, demonstrating the validity of the dating.

Could you please sort this mess out, archaeologist?

Close quote boxes with [/qs], and preferably divide the post into separate replies to each of the posts you're replying to.
