Instead of filling the gaps in the fossil record with so-called missing links, most paleontologists found themselves facing a situation in which there were only gaps in the fossil record, with no evidence of transformational intermediates between documented fossil species. (Jeffrey H. Schwartz, Sudden Origins, 1999, p. 89.) The 4.2-million-year-old small Indian civet cat skull illustrated confirms these words by Jeffrey H. Schwartz. The fossil record reveals no intermediate forms of the kind anticipated by evolutionists, but does exhibit examples of contemporary life forms together with all their complex structures, as with this 4.2-million-year-old animal.
