Science Uprising and the Fossil Record

Here’s another episode of Science Uprising that I found particularly enjoyable. It’s a 9-minute clip about evolution and the fossil record, and it includes commentary by paleontologist Gunter Bechly, geologist Casey Luskin, and Dr. Stephen Meyer, who discuss the predictions made by evolutionists vs. what is actually found in the fossils record.

More specifically, this short clip discusses the Cambrian Explosion and the sudden appearance of organisms in the fossil record. One particular concept, called the Collector’s Curve, explains that the fossil record is sufficiently complete and not lacking. For example, if we lived on a beach and decided to spend most of our time collecting starfish and sea shells, after a while we’d only find the same ones over and over, and this would suggest we’ve found all the ones that ever existed. When applied to the fossil record, we find a lack of transitionary fossils, suggesting there was no evolution.

The video takes a quick look at the impossibility of whale evolution, examining the ridiculous amount of reengineering necessary to convert a land animal into a marine animal. New organisms require new organs and tissues, which cannot be explained within the amount of time evolution requires.

If you have nine minutes, this is definitely worth the watch.

  1. Thanks for that video. Great points. There was no evolution in the way they describe. Its a big topic. I think the problem lies in the lack of imagination by Scientists. You need to walk through everything.. So if there are whales on the top layer of a mountain walk that back it means everything below it, every layer of the fossil record was under water while that final layer was laid down. Then what? if we fast forward after that last layer the whole of each continent would have to have popped out of the ocean. It means every continent with layers had to be under water to get that last layer in. Even a Giraffe with a straw couldn’t survive that for “10’s of millions of years”
    It means after each layer some how things survived and then were washed away into a layer and then things survived and then washed away in a layer and each layer would be under water when the next layer was laid down. its backwards to what they think.
    I propose that these extinction events were not one after the other in hundreds of thousands of years increments but all done in weeks and months devastating most if not all of life as we know it. And since then there was been small floods but nothing like the deluge or list of deluges over a couple years of time that wiped all those species out.

    And almost no birds are in the fossil record yet there are 10,000 species and 8000 sub species. Whatever happened it did not happen the way they said.

    • Thanks, whale evolution is always interesting because there’s so much wrong with the concept that is self-evident, yet evolutionists have little choice but to embrace it and explain away the inconsistencies. And I agree that many of the extinction events occurred in weeks and months. Appreciate your response!
