Fossils often are the result of quick burial. Sometimes it's obvious that the burial happened in flowing mud. Fossil footsteps of dinosaurs sometimes are found in deeper layers than their bones. There are a lot of reasons to assume that most fossils were formed under catastrophic circumstances.
Another question is about missing links: direct descent cannot be deduced from the fossil record.
Forming of fossils
Fossils can be formed in a number of ways:
It's not hard to see that the circumstances for the forming of fossils often are linked to smaller or bigger catastrophes.
Does the fossil record reveal many intermediate species?
We will discuss the argument of the intermediate species on the basis of the assumption the evolutionary dating is right. Do we indeed find many intermediate species?
This is supposed to have happened in about 15 million years - not much on evolutionary time scale for so many features that have to change. Let's take a look at some questions about it:

Dragons and dinosaurs
Very interesting are the stories on dragons - up to pretty recent times - and the soft tissue that has been found in dinosaur fossils. Links 6-9 supply more information about that and the video "Dragons or Dinosaurs" discusses the evidence.
