Scientist said that Tiktaalik discovery created two new "missing links"

The first comment under my post about the Gogonasus fossil said,

YES! Two new gaps in the fossil record for the Cretinists! ;)

One scientist who is not laughing at this joke is Farish Jenkins, Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology and curator of vertebrate paleontology at Harvard University, who was one of the lead researchers in the Tiktaalik project. An article in the Harvard Gazette said,

Though Tiktaalik has been widely referred to as a "missing link," Jenkins said he thinks the term is a bit of a misnomer and concurs with those who said its discovery just creates two new missing links, one on each side.

LOL

This shows the meaningless of the criticism of evolution that various "missing links" are not present. No matter how many links are filled in, the IDiots can point to further links ad infinitum.

And the actual gene changes must remain "missing links" forever. Not only are there no fossils for them, there were never any individual creatures in the between state that could have become fossils. Of course, the IDiots will think this vindicates their position (not that it really makes much difference; they have little use for evidence anyway).

So you have this all figured out. Good for you.

Tiktaalik was once a missing link. According to you, Tiktaalik therefore did not exist. So why did scientists spend so much time searching for it?

I am not laughing at the joke.

I think that we must revive the Idiot of the month contest. I have never seen another person with less reading comprehension or logical ability.
