No problem. Abrupt appearance and stasis are the two most obvious
features of the fossil record. And since virtually all mutations are
negative, then regress should dominate - which is what YEC say: we were
created perfect in the Garden, but look at us now!
I don't see how naturalistic evolution, as it moves from simple to
complex (not by definition), can overcome regression. For every step
forward (a beneficial mutation) there are a thousand steps backward
(harmful mutations). Takes more faith than I have to believe that.
