Contrary to expectation, new species appear out of nowhere, without intermediary forms.
Which simply shows that you have no understanding of mordern Darwinism. Would you expect to find Giraffes with steadily longer and longer necks? Or perhaps with long legs so that they had to kneel to feed?

The Romans invade the wet and miserable Britain, and enslave the cowardly maker of square wheels Hengist Pod (Kenneth Connor) and the fearless warrior Horsa (Jim Dale), among others. When an attempt is made to kill the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar (Kenneth Williams) at a Roman temple, Horsa kills Caesar's enemies, but Hengist gets all the credit, and is made Caesar's bodyguard. Meanwhile, Mark Antony

Is this a comedy? I'm referring to "maker of square wheels". Is that a typo or some of that famous British wit?

Yep! Sort of beats the present political broadcasts, trust me!
The series was described as a mixture of comedy and titillation-with the emphasis on tits!
Very educational!

If I were maintaining that these were changes that conferred some survival advantage that etc. etc. etc., then, yes. I would.

And when 150 years of evidence failed to support it, I'd discard the idea. :wink:

Oh goody! So why are you expecting to find 'intermediate species?'
You spoke of species arising out of nowhere. Are you a believer in 'Spontaneous Generation' by any chance?

A good round dozen crocoducks at critical junctures would go a long way toward making it seem plausible.

See, Dig. Right out of the Creation Museum playbook.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Because without them, the whole idea that one species gradually turned into another one comes apart at the seams. aka, "evolved."

Granted. The clue is 'gradually', that is where Darwin was wrong and suggested that he might be so and so are you.
On Ishtar's site I reported an experiment with a Sea Cucumber that kills your idea, I suggest that you look it up.
