"Evolution has inconsistent speeds of evolution. (#C942)
- Slowly over time.
- Very quickly, in a large “leap” 1
Evolutionists typically present #1 to the public (#2 would sound more like a miracle). However, when #1 does not work, they shift to #2. Although some change in speed is understandable, large leaps are not part of what is generally presented as evolution.

- Palmer, 2011, p. 131: “A recent proposal from Nick Lane of University College London and William Martin of Dusseldorf University suggests that, while the move from simple prokaryotes to complex eukaryotes was a unique event, it was not the result of natural selection acting in the usual way (on gradually accumulated mutations of individual prokaryotes) but was instead the result of a sudden ‘bioenergetic leap’ in genome capacity. They argue that the presence of mitochondria within almost all eukaryotes shows that both cell and mitochondrion share a common origin in the same event.” ↩
