Creationists keep asking for Transition fossils, and then say that the examples given are not Transitional.  Yet they fail to define Transitional.  Someone care to clear this up?

They ask for undeniable transitional fossils. But, as i've said before, that's not possible. They will deny them.

Well, most of them will ignore them altogether.

To me every species is transitional. To them, none is.

-Prove to me that the species 1 became the species 2! What's in the gap??
-Here. I give you 1.5!
-You had one gap. Now you have two. You're losing ground!

LOL

Beautifully stated!

looking at it that way, its a bit like Zeno's Dichotomy "Paradox" Creationists need to look at sums of decreasing geometric series!

Haha! True!

Yours was a good question.

I'm interested not only in a definition. But what would a transitional fossil look like.

I bet they would say a sea lion doesn't look transitional. Then what?

I hope they're not serious about the crocoduck.

One problem in this is that creationists dont seem to have any idea what is meant by "species".  

Or what it would mean for each to reproduce after its own "kind".  

Cow and buffalo, are they different species?  They can cross breed.  Did they multiply, each after its own kind?

Bring in the splitters and the lumpers!

I think that creationists mean totally different animals, like cat and dog, when the say different species.  

But those of us who took taxonomy and comparative anatomy are not so sure that the are "completely" different.
