Darwin’s “abominable mystery” is not only very much alive and kicking, but it also suggests intelligent design.
This year a new article by Silvestro et al. (2021), “Fossil data support a pre-Cretaceous origin of flowering plants,” was published.
Darwinists had hoped that 150 years of paleontological research since Darwin would surely make this nagging problem go away.
Darwinism sounds superficially plausible until one looks at real plants and animals with their irreducibly complex details.
If this accurately reflects the argument in the primary research paper, it provides a beautiful example of common descent as axiomatically true.
