Recently, a team of British paleontologists added a new pseudo-explanation.
The orderly pattern of biogeographic distribution of plants and animals was one of the lines of evidence that Charles Darwin mentioned in support of his theory.
The top-down pattern of appearance of animal phyla during the Cambrian explosion represents major conflicting evidence for Darwinian evolution.
The paradigm of cladistic classification based on assumed common ancestry should be reconsidered in favor of a traditional phenetic classification based on maximum similarity.
Obviously, evolutionary “laws” are quite malleable and have to give way when they become too cumbersome.
