So, after some assistance from Dr. Gary Hurd from the antievolution boards, I’ve since found the article that Dr. Simmons referenced in his debate with PZ Myers. It turns out that to support Dr. Simmons opinion, it requires either not actually reading the article or just ignoring what the article says. For example, it is not a detailed summary on whale evolution at all, it’s just a news article about a new transitional form that has been discovered, which adds a piece to the existing knowledge we have about whale evolution. The article itself immediately contradicts Dr. Simmons ideas straight off the bat! Further, the article also clearly states:
Over the past 15 years, researchers have uncovered a series of fossils intermediate between whales and land animals, but were still missing a link to landlubbing beasts, which Thewissen says Indohyus now provides
Which fairly conclusively answers Dr. Simmons non-existant objections.
