I will agree with that assessment. However, based on the fact that the fossil record provides no true evidence of one, I will conclude it does not exist. It's funny though that the scientific community, with all of it's major data and scrutiny have just basically closed there eyes and said "the link must exist" and even if they never find it it's there. That sounds a lot like blind faith that they accuse religious people of having for believing in a God they can't see. Ironic. Since when is a bunch of bones of specific species, one to the next, certifiable proof a link "MUST" exist? That just sounds at best, like an educated guess.
