Ichthyosaur Transitional Form Imaginings

Once again, proponents of evolution and their enthusiastic (but often irresponsible) press go off at full gallop, claiming to have found a missing link. "Transitional forms" are supposed to be abundant, and there would be a huge number of them that cannot be disputed. In reality, every possibility is big news. That should tell you something right there, since transitional forms do not really exist.

This time, it's a supposed transition between marine ichthyosaurs and a land-based creature. The evolutionary tale is that life evolved from the ocean onto land, and then some things decided to evolve so they could live in the sea again.

Here we have something that looks kinda sorta like a stubby version of the ichthyosaur, so evolutionists tack on presuppositions, numerous speculations, imaginings and outright guesswork to present this as "science". The new fossil is incomplete, but they still think it's an amphibian. Much faith, little substance.
Ichthyosaurs are extinct marine reptiles. Up to 65 feet long with fish-like bodies, flippers, a dorsal fin, and tails suited for swimming, ichthyosaurs (literally, “fish-lizards”) were well adapted for life in the water. They appear “suddenly” in the fossil record in rock conventionally dated about 250 million years ago, and hundreds of ichthyosaur fossils have been found. There are even fossilized ichthyosaurs preserved in the act of giving birth. What has not been found, despite a century and a half of searching, is the evolutionary ancestor of ichthyosaurs. Scientists reporting in Nature claim to have found one—an amphibious version.
