Yes you can
I agree that Jazzns was exaggerating since it will be hard to ever make a case for having a 'complete' fossil record for anything.

That aside I'm not quite sure how you expect to have a record of genetic changes in fossil species, except to the extent they can be inferred from morphological ones.

Its good to see you back on the board Randman.

TTFN,

WK

non sequitur
Well, if you can, please do.

Sad to see your reading comprehension doesn't seem to be at full power.

If I 'can please do' what? All I was doing was commenting that there is no way to show a record of genetic change from the fossil record, with possible rare exceptions. We might infer some things about genetic change, but that is all. And the degree to which people agree on the strength of these inferences depends to a large extent on how significant they see the contributions of genetics to determining a final form.

TTFN,

WK
