Oh, Woot, what a can of worms you have opened today. Might as well add my two cents.

Heck, I can go out to the Salt Flats here in Utah and go find a few for myself in an afternoon. Of course most of those are small but our record of fossils is truly vast. It is amazing that what we find are "completed" kinds. We don't see examples of animals that are transitioning from one kind to another. We can see changes within kinds, for example we see transitional species, but we NEVER see fossils in-between kinds.
If evolution were fact, we would actually have a hard time finding a "completed kind" because all we'd have would be transitions!
It is pretty staggering. Let's hear from Darwin again shall we?
"If numerous species, belonging to the same genera or families, have really started into life all at once, the fact would be fatal to the theory to descent with slow modification though natural selection. -Charles Darwin"
According to this quote from Darwin, the Cambrian Explosion disproves the current model of evolution.
All fossils are "the completed kind" because all animals are. A rhino didn't first form a thick bulky hide and later the skeleton to support the extra weight, it was an ongoing process. All animals(yes, humans are animals too)are "transitional" forms AND completed forms. Evolution is ongoing and unstoppable, whether you want to believe in it or not. Science try's to understand, religion already believes it knows. I could no more convince someone that "knows" the "truth", than to convince a bumblebee that it shouldn't be able to fly.
