If you put my statement in context of your discussion of the fish-Amphibian
transition, then yes. But if you pull it out of context then no. As I
mentioned in my post, the oldest mammal species which currently is found
alive is from the Miocene. But there is no species at all that has existed
for the past 368 million years. Name it and a reference if I am wrong.

No, the assumption is that the geologic column was laid down by Noah's
flood. For the sake of argument I am assuming that the geologic column was
deposited in a one year deluge 4000 years ago. If this is true then there
should be modern fish genera in the fossil record. There aren't Why????

What you have done is to ignore a problem the data presents to your position
and tried to alter the subject to molecular biology. Why won't you simply
admit that this is a problem for the global flood position?
