No, that is no the "facts".

Fine, but I was looking for evidence that scientists have discovered evidence for major evolutionary change in the fossil record since Grasse wrote that. You seem to think they have. Care to elaborate?

Any reason why you are quote-mining books from 30 years ago? Grasse also says in the same book:

To be charged with quote-mining, you'd have to demonstrate that someone's comments were taken out of context. I did no such thing. I quoted from Grasse, and asked if his opinion on the fact that major evolutionary change seems to have stopped (based on the fossil record) has been proven wrong. I made no comment, implied or otherwise, that Grasse didn't believe in evolution. So you're quote from him is not relevant. You're picking a fight where there is none.
