Transitional life form are not found in the fossil record. They are not found in living life forms that have very short life spans, e.g. bacteria, protozoa etc. The term "transitional life form" is a non-observed idea needed for the non-observed belief in evolution.
1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
The above photo is only of a local cloud/rain burst in the SW US. But, can we imagine what it must have been like to have massive "gates of heaven" opening to flood the earth with water? As the song says, "We can only imagine..." In that song the singer was wondering about what heaven will be like, but there is also a side of God that judges sin. Each of us needs to repent of our sins and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and then to follow Him in the calling of Righteousness, Holiness, Purity, and Truth. See John 3:16. (Also see tab on Christian Theology and Evangelism on this website.)

This image is from an older text (1800's), but it shows the progression of butterfly development: Butterfly(15) lays eggs. Eggs (not show) hatch and develop into caterpillars (16) which then go into the chrysalis stage(17) and finally hatch into the butterfly stage. Then eggs are laid again and the cycle begins again.The code for all this is probably only contained in the DNA and the reading of it, transcription/translation into proteins and the assembling into each of the very different structures in each stage occurs. Very complex turning on and off of genes must occur in a precise sequence. Mutations occurring at any of these stages, at any level of the processes, can be debilitating and lethal. As all life forms show such great complexity the ideas (as they are not demonstrated) of evolutionary philosophy can not be adequately used to explain their development. Life forms demonstrate great diversity even within their given groups. These observations fit better into the creation philosophy as they support the divine design of life forms, the varieties seen within the groups, and the corruption of the mutational processes. In these corrupting processes life forms became susceptible to disease and carriers of disease. For the Christian and Jew this degradation began after the Fall of man (Adam) in his rebellion against God. For Romans 8:22 says, "For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now." God will redeem the earth one day.(See other pages on this site regarding DNA and mutations.)

Storms and rain are unique in the Southwest US.Often one will see rain in the distance and it will never come to where the person observing it is located. Other times it can be a fast moving storm dropping a significant amount of rain very quickly and causing flooding of the dry Arroyos (dry river beds). Yet, the sun shining through after the rain birst is beautiful and the sky clear blue. The pine and cider trees sprout light colored needles or buds the day after. It can be very beautiful. Yet, it still reflects the fall and groaning of the earth while it awaits its redemption.
