Re: Do it yourself!
Modulous, first off, I am not a scientist, and secondly, I have little confidence that evo journals would publish such a study if it contained criticism of the basic evo paradigm.

You mean like Gould and Elderedge did?

...and became famous and hugely respected for doing?

Re: Understanding the others position
I was referring to deep oceans where the bodies of the dead are undergoing decay by the time they hit the bottom. Whales often come into shallower water, which I am led to believe is more conducive for fossilization.

Let's also remember that when proto-whales were still at least partially land-dwelling creatures, they spent a lot of time in and around the edges of bodies of water.

Muddy marine environments are particularly well-suited to fossilization.

That's why we see many, many many fossils of trilobite.
