The Famous Geological Time Table

"Since the time of Darwin, paleontologists have found themselves confronted with evidence that conflicts with gradualism, yet the message of the fossil record has been ignored. This strange circumstance constitutes a remarkable chapter in the history of science, and gives students of the fossil record cause for concern."
(The New Biology, page 175)

"We have proffered a collective tacit acceptance of the story of gradual adaptive change, a story that strengthened and became more entrenched as the synthesis took hold. We paleontologists have said that the history of life supports that interpretation, all the while knowing it does not."
(The New Biology, page 175)

"If living matter is not, then, causes by an interplay of atoms, natural forces and radiation, how has it come into being?...I think however, that we must go further than this and admit that the only acceptable explanation is creation. I know this is anathema to physicists, as indeed it is to me, but we must not reject a theory we do not like if experimental evidence supports it? 
(Physics Bulletin, May, 1980)

"To make an organism demands the right substances in the right proportions and in the right arrangement. We do not think that anything more is needed-- but that is problem enough. One has only to contemplate the magnitude of this task to concede that the spontaneous generation of a living organism is impossible. Yet here we are, as a result, I believe, of spontaneous generation." 
(Dr. Wald, The Origin of Life, Scientific American, Sept. 1958)

It is strange that there have been fundamental changes in every other scientific discipline since the 1800s, but no significant changes in the Geological Time-Table.

This would not be acceptable in any other scientific discipline.
