Dr. David Berlinski: Berlinksi is a secular Jew and self-described agnostic, and according to a 2008 Slate magazine profile "a critic, a contrarian, and - by his own admission.

(1) "David Berlinski was born to Jewish-German refugees from Nazi Germany who immigrated to New York City, and German was his first spoken language. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Princeton University and was (2)later a postdoctoral fellow in mathematics and molecular biology at Columbia University. He has taught philosophy, mathematics, and English at Stanford, Rutgers, the City University of New York, the University of Washington, the University of Puget Sound, San Jose State University, the University of Santa Clara, the University of San Francisco, and San Francisco State University."

deliberately misunderstanding something in order to rubbish it because it seems illogical to you is not impressive.

if he knows so much about science, he shouldn't talk about evolution as if huge changes happen in one big step.
his whole cow-whale/car-submarine analogy would make anyone who knows the basics of evolution annoyed. he's trying to throw off idiots by confusing them.
it really isnt hard to understand how an animal could change from a life on land to living in water and vice-versa. you just have to realise that these things take time.

dude, he's not saying that. listen to what he says and watch the whole thing. Specifically to the end should show your lack of watching.

fair enough, i just got past the bit the annoyed me, and he wasn't talking about leaps in evolution. silly me. he really could've done without that whole analogy. he basically took the whole of that video to say that there are gaps in the fossil record.

yeah basically. but it's a better argument when it's explained.

For a molecular biologist, he should know that if you compare the myoglobin, lens alpha-crystallin A, cytochrome c, alpha- and beta- hemoglobins and ribonuclease of cetaceans (whales, et al.) to that of the other mammals on earth their closest match (and it's a very close match) is Ungulates (more specifically even-toed ungulates), an order of mammals that includes, ironically, cows.

In any event, I'm sad I had to sit through nearly five minutes of that video for him to discredit himself by claiming Ambulocetus is the only transitional form between a land-based mammal and an aquatic mammal.

There's Basilosaurus, who despite the name was an aquatic mammal, and among the parts of it's skeleton found were hind legs and a pelvic girdle, and Rodhocetus a semi-aquatic mammal whose nasal passage is in the skull midway between where is is on a land mammal and a fully aquatic mammal.

Several other, severely incomplete skeletons have been found of distinctly different aquatic and semi-aquatic mammals, but those aren't worth mentioning, being that they're missing a lot of pieces.
