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.
