The obvious gaps in the fossils record are consistent with the Christian theory of a progressive creation.
How did you determine that these are real gaps instead of fossils we just haven't found yet? In the last 20 years a lot of gaps in the fossil record have been filled in.
Humans didn't evolve from monkey-men (aka mankeys), for example - humans were a separate and distinct creation, formed from dust, as Genesis 2:7 states. None of the created kinds evolve beyond their original kind, although microevolution obvioulsy occurs within each kind.
For someone who talks about fossils being evidence I am surprised you would say this. There a lot of fossils that fill the gap between humans and other apes:

Sadly, you are mistaking wishful thinking for evidence. This is a very common fault (read: delusion) amongst evolutionists.
What wishful thinking? It is a fact that those fossil species have a mixture of human and ape features, no wishing needed.
