    If evolution exists why there aren't any fossils of transition period?

    There are. Where did you hear that there aren't?

    Ah, you've been listening to uninformed creationists.
    In one sense every fossil (and every living creature too) is a transitional form.

    I was lead by emotions when I wrote this duo to inability to provide a solid answer. And the moment later after I posted this I realized that this question doesn't have sense. Almost every fossil is in a transitional form.. unless we have fossils of creatures that died together or in a in quick succession..

    And there was not delete topic button, so it remained this way. But after all this can be helpful for someone with a similar thought.

    For not being able to suppress my emotions and to think before I say or do something? If that is what you meant then I completely agree with you, but when I am not able to provide answers I look for all solutions that came on my mind...

    sculptor, why are you being so obtuse. HB3Ii is not looking for someone with a similar thought. They are suggesting that if someone has a similar thought and searches science forums for such a question/answer they may be fortunate enough to find it here.
